BCD Series DC Charger

DC Source Chargers
Common Negative
Step-Up & Step-Down DC Source Chargers and Equalizers
These units provide up to 800 watts to charge 1 or 2 banks of batteries at 12 or 24 VDC from a 12, 24, 32 or 36 volt source. Also available are special models (Battery Equalizers) that allow current to be drawn at 12 or 24 volts from a 24V battery bank.

High-Voltage DC Source Chargers
Available in Digital or Analog technology, these isolated DC-DC units charge 1 or 2 banks of batteries between 12 and 72(rail) volts from a 12 to 350 VDC power sources at power levels from 300 to 1500 watts.

Product Description

Traditional BCD series chargers feature precision charging voltages for 1 or 2 banks of batteries at 12, 24, 32, 36, 48 or 72 VDC. Models are available to operate from input voltages as low as 10 VDC and up to 400 VDC at power levels from 60 to 1500 watts.
Most models feature user selectable 2-stage or 3-stage charging profiles, temperature compensation and user initiated equalization for optimum charging and maximum battery life.
Various models feature either common ground for lower cost or full isolation where different ground levels need to be accommodated (ie. Charging a positive ground battery from a negative ground source or vice-versa).

The reliable Current Mode switching design offers power and reliability in a compact package. The low ripple charging current and standard equalize cycle greatly increases the lifetime of expensive battery systems. Extra input and output filtering reduce EMI to extremely low levels.

Reliability features include an input fuse, thermal shutdown, current limiting, reverse battery hookup protection and output short circuit protection with automatic recovery.

The output voltage is easily adjusted 1.0 volts above or below the standard output voltage to accommodate special charging requirements. Optional features include a Digital Volt/Ammeter, Remote Control Panel, and 19” or 23″ Rack Mount configurations.

Analytic Systems manufactures a wide range of battery chargers that operate from either AC or DC sources recharge virtually any type of battery from 12 to 72 (rail) volts at power levels from 100 to 1500 watts.

All models feature heavy EMI filtering to minimize conducted and radiated emissions, preventing interference with sensitive communications equipment. Other features include no-spark battery connection, reverse battery hookup protection and adjustable float and absorption voltages.
