Blue Power IP65 Charg­ers of­fer so much more than stan­dard charg­ers

DEMM Engineering & Manufacturing - - PRODUCT WATCH -

The new Blue Power IP65 range of bat­tery charg­ers are now avail­able from Power­box Pa­cific with 5A, 7A, 10A and 15A rated mod­els for 12V bat­ter­ies and 5A and 8A rated mod­els for 24V bat­tery banks. With each charger two sets of DC leads are sup­plied, one ter­mi­nated with clamps and the other set ter­mi­nated with M8 eye­lets.

With a five-year war­ranty the Blue Power IP65 charg­ers of­fer up to 95 per­cent ef­fi­ciency and up to four times less heat when com­pared to the other in­dus­try stan­dard mod­els. And once the bat­tery is fully charged, power con­sump­tion re­duces to 0.5 Watt, some five to ten times bet­ter than the in­dus­try stan­dard. Durable, safe and to­tally silent with no cool­ing fan or any other mov­ing parts. The Blue Power charg­ers are IP65 rated of­fer­ing pro­tec­tion against the ingress of dust, wa­ter and chem­i­cals. The charg­ers are pro­tected against over­heat­ing with out­put cur­rent re­duc­ing as the tem­per­a­ture in­creases up to 60°C, low­er­ing the ther­mal stress on the elec­tronic com­po­nents.

An­other fea­ture is the tem­per­a­ture com­pen­sated charg­ing where the op­ti­mal charge volt­age of a lead-acid bat­tery varies in­versely with tem­per­a­ture. The Blue Power IP65 Charger mea­sures am­bi­ent tem­per­a­ture dur­ing the test phase and com­pen­sates for tem­per­a­ture dur­ing the charge process. The tem­per­a­ture is mea­sured again when the charger is in low cur­rent mode dur­ing f loat or stor­age. Spe­cial set­tings for a cold or hot en­vi­ron­ment are there­fore not needed.

The Blue Power IP65 charg­ers also have a Li-ion bat­tery mode that uses a spe­cific charg­ing al­go­rithm for Li-ion (LiFePO ) bat­ter­ies, with au­to­matic Li-ion un­der volt­age pro­tec­tion re­set.

Most re­verse po­lar­ity pro­tected charg­ers will not recog­nise, and there­fore not recharge, a bat­tery which has been dis­charged to zero or nearly zero Volts. The Blue Power IP65 Charger how­ever of­fers a re­cov­ery func­tion for fully dis­charged bat­ter­ies and will at­tempt to recharge a fully dis­charged bat­tery with low cur­rent and re­sume nor­mal charg­ing once suf­fi­cient volt­age has de­vel­oped across the bat­tery ter­mi­nals.
