The smarter battery charger is up to any challenge
Analytic Systems' industrial-grade battery chargers use the latest Current Mode Pulse Width Modulation controller IC technology, representing the culmination of years of development effort. The BCA1000 battery charger provides up to 1000 watts to charge a 12, 24, 32, or 48 Volt battery system (1 or 2 banks) from a 110V AC source. The batteries must share a common ground. Multiple stages of filtering reduce radiated or conducted noise to very low levels.
Extra features include adjustable output voltage for different battery chemistries, audible and visual indicators for low input voltage, low output voltage, over temperature and an equalize charging cycle. Safety features include both charger and battery over-temperature shutdown, current limiting, short circuit protection with automatic recovery, input undervoltage shutdown and reverse battery hook-up protection. Rated for continuous 24hr duty, with a ten-year operating lifespan.
