Designed for harsh environments, the circuitry is resin encapsulated into the heatsink. Although normally supplied with a loose transformer, they can be used with a low voltage AC winding on the main alternator or to charge a 12V battery from a 24V system. These current limited, constant potential solid state battery chargers are based on our BCQ series to provide fully automatic and maintenance free charging of NiCad, Lead-Acid and Gel type sealed lead-acid, batteries. Voltage Boost terminals are provided to equalize the cells in flooded-cell batteries and the float voltage is user adjustable via a multi-turn potentiometer.
Note: these chargers cannot operate as power supplies.
Note: never add an external blocking diode as these charge controllersmust be connected direct to the Batteries.
