C&D Technologies Introduces the Micro ARE Series Chargers, the Latest in Microprocessor Controlled Ferroresonant Float Rectifiers

Blue Bell, PA - August 21, 2003 - C&D Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: CHP), Powercom Division, a leading North American producer and marketer of electronics, batteries, battery systems, and integrated standby power systems, today announced the release of the Micro ARE Series microprocessor controlled ferroresonant float chargers. These high efficiency chargers are safe, have an easy to read digital screen, and require minimal maintenance, saving end-users money and time.

C&D Technologies' ARE Chargers, originally introduced in the early 1980s, have been providing DC power to critical applications in the utility and telecommunications industries. In designing this new generation of chargers, the Powercom Electronics engineering and manufacturing teams built upon the proven technology of the ARE Float Current Charger and increased ease of use by integrating microprocessor control functions, resulting in lower costs, greater functionality and reduced maintenance.

The Micro ARE has built-in intelligence in that all its functions are monitored and controlled by the integrated microprocessor. This design strategy increases the functionality and reliability of the product and provides greater access to the operational parameters of the charger. Among the features included in the Micro ARE:
o Large LCD display and indicator lights provide clear and concise information on the operation of the charger, allowing users to quickly and safely set up and operate the unit.
o Keypad setup of operating parameters eliminates complex configuration, thereby reducing commissioning time.
o Extensive functionality of the basic charger eliminates the need for optional components, reducing cost and increasing reliability.
o Comprehensive system monitoring and alarms identify problem conditions and facilitate rapid troubleshooting.
o Available in three sizes of cabinets to fit virtually any user requirement.

"C&D Technologies' Micro ARE Series Chargers are a combination of proven, high performance chargers with the latest in embedded micro controller technology," stated Christopher O'Brien, vice president of Powercom Electronics. "Our customers rely on the products we design and manufacture to keep their equipment working under the toughest conditions, and the Micro ARE is another step forward for C&D in meeting this important need."
