Case Studies on Magellan Power's Reliable Chargers

In today’s disposable culture, it is common to need to upgrade technology after only five years of use, or less. Australian manufacturer Magellan Power are actively working against this trend, offering a 5-year warranty and a guarantee that their products will last for years.    

Below are some of the projects which Magellan Power has supplied since inception in 1991, which are still using chargers from over 20 years ago.

Power Supplies for Jindalee Over the Horizon Radar Network


The 2000 high reliability extra low noise mil-spec power supplies for the Jindalee Over the Horizon Radar Network (JORN) were supplied in 1995 and are still operating now, in 2018. 
The Jindalee Operational Radar Network (JORN) is an over-the-horizon radar (OTHR) network that can monitor air and sea movements across 37,000 km². 
It has a normal operating range of 1,000 km to 3,000 km. The network is used in the defence of Australia, and can also monitor maritime operations, wave heights and wind directions. Earlier this year it was announced that a $1.2 billion upgrade of the network will commence, which is expected to span over 10 years. 

Magellan Charger - 22 Years in the Sun 


The above equipment is an SPC Series Charger, which was designed and manufactured by Magellan Power in 1996 to provide back-up power to a mine processing plant north of Perth. 
The 110V, 15A charger operated outside for 22 years, providing reliable back-up power until replacement earlier this year. This is an example of the steadfast, rugged and reliable service offered by Magellan Power's chargers.

18 Years of Substation Service 


The above 50V MCRI battery chargers were supplied to a utility customer in the year 2000. 18 years later they are still in place, and still working. We have sent you these short case studies to demonstrate the longevity and reliability of Australian designed and made back-up power systems by Magellan Power. 

Magellan Power has been in operation for 27 years, and has continued to support its very first customers with maintenance and servicing of their equipment manufactured in the 1990’s. 

This is the reason why we have "Making Products That Last For Years" as an important core value.

Brookfield Rail’s Merredin office regularly sources power chargers from Magellan Power, and we always find it an easy process for new purchases and repairs. Their Sales & Repair Manager Shijo is prompt with responses to our queries, and on one occasion travelled to Merredin to meet with us, which we found extremely helpful.
