Alfatronix develops and manufactures battery chargers, power-supply equipment and voltage converters for the automotive, communications, marine and railway industries. They were already old friends of ours, being longstanding members of the Quicksilver Corporate Club. So when the need arose for voltage converters for the boat, we wasted no time requesting further assistance. Their products perfectly meet our needs.
The company's headquarters are in Poole, Dorset. There is also an Alfatronix subsidiary in France.
Quicksilver's main electrical system operates at 24 volts DC. A typical example of the use of a voltage converter on the boat is to reduce the voltage to the 12 volts required for the operation of the on-board radio communication system.
