C POWER for marine applications

The Hitzinger C-Power marine coupled converter provides absolute power protection to marine applications and provides a ‘clean source of power’ to ships in port. The C-Power rotary converter acts independently from the local network and provides maximum power stability, overload capacity, precision and reliability, together with optional vibration dampers for resilient mountings. The guaranteed high quality supply ensures sensitive on-board equipment is protected to ensure continuous operation.
