G26000AU battery charger
new to CoolDrive
CoolDrive adds the G26000AU battery charger from Noco
Genius to its range to continue providing customers with the
latest innovating technology.
CoolDrive’s product range continually expands to meet
its customer’s needs and the inclusion of the G26000AU
battery charger to its existing NG range provides customers
with wickedly smart chargers.
Powered by Noco’s VosFX processor, the G26000AU
battery charger uses sophisticated levels of intelligence to
alter the charge process by intelligently diagnosing,
recovering, charging and maintaining the battery.
Designed with rapid charging technology, CoolDrive said
the G26000AU charges 12 and 24 volt batteries twice as
fast as traditional linear battery chargers.
The G26000AU battery charger is a powerful charger
designed with specialised charging modes that have the
ability to recover severely drained batteries no longer
accepting a normal charge.
This unique feature helps many customers save money
because the existing batteries no longer need replacing.
Designed for safety, the G26000AU battery charger has
protection against overheating and overcharging.
It is spark-proof and prevents short circuiting, making it
one of the most reliable battery chargers on the market, while
a remote temperature probe optimises charging performance
and enables charging in any climate.
Operating the battery charger is simple and user friendly
because it is fully interactive and automatically adjusts itself
to the charging current required.
A useful feature for constantly charging the same battery
is the auto memory, which returns the charger to the last
selected mode when restarted.
CoolDrive is one of Australia’s largest automotive parts
distributors with a comprehensive range of automotive air
conditioning, engine cooling, engine management and
electrical parts and accessories.
CoolDrive Distribution is 100 percent Australian owned
and operated and has 17 branches Australia wide.

Don’t get your wires crossed
Modern electrical systems
and wiring harnesses are
complex and not even the
bravest technician would
anything but simple tasks
With the advent of
multiplex wiring in even
cutting, replacing or
modifying and wiring in a
vehicle can result in
several other systems
With the complexity of
the modern wiring
system, it is no surprise
to learn that producing a
standardised diagram is a
Autodata’s team of
themselves entirely to producing up to 30 separate circuit diagrams for each model
in what the company describes is a “unique clarity driven style”.
The level of work involved for a single model range is so time consuming that it
takes one electrician up to three solid months to produce one of these schematic
On Autodata’s premium online product, the wiring diagrams are all laid out in the
same format so that no interpretation is required from manufacturer to manufacturer.
These current flow diagrams use standardised wire colours, while components are
given standard codes for ease of use.
The user can view the overall circuit diagram, with a magnified window on one side
for a more detailed view of a particular section.
On each diagram the earth points can be expanded to show a ‘glass car’ to show
all the earth point locations on the vehicle making earthing problems easier to trace.
Autodata Managing Director, Brett Engeman said wiring diagrams was one of the
biggest tasks for the company when compiling its data.
“The number of man hours dedicated to it is staggering,” he said.
“With each passing year these diagrams have become more complex and our task
in interpreting them in to our standardised style has become harder.
“They have proved to be very popular, particularly with specialist auto electricians
who have such difficulty in sourcing this information normally.”
Mr Engeman said the standardised format saved a great deal of time.
“The difference in style and detail between an original manufacturer diagram
produced by one company and another can be huge,” he said.
Each component can be identified along with its connector types and its internal
elements are also indicated.
Continuity paths through electro-mechanical components are also illustrated to
allow easy identification of points to test voltages and continuity.
Combined with Autodata’s Electrical Components Locations and Diagnostic Trouble
Codes modules, the wiring diagrams allow auto electricians and technicians to identify
and solve a range of problems faster.
Wiring diagrams are just one of the features covered on Autodata online.
Other subjects include air conditioning, manufacturer service schedules, key
programming, technical data and timing belts.
