Intelligent battery charger can detect and charge up to four lithium ion and lithium polymer cells
May 04, 2012 // Paul Buckley
An intelligent battery charger that can automatically detect and charge up to four Li-Ion or Li-Polymer cells has been released by Powersolve.
The microprocessor controlled PSCH15LI Smart Charger is able to identify the cells in series and provide the necessary output to fully charge the cells and then turn itself off.
The PSCH15LI features a universal AC input and incorporates an IEC320 C8 2 pin AC input connector. Powersolve can supply the charger with various DC output connectors.
Output voltage is auto switching from 4.2 V to 16.8 V ±1.5% for 1,2,3 or four cells and charging current is from 500 mA to 1 A. Safety ground leakage current is <0.5 mA.
Overvoltage and short circuit protection is standard as is protection against reverse polarity. An LED status indicator confirms standby, charging and fully charged states. Housed in a compact desk top plastic enclosure measuring 96 x 44 x 30 mm, the PSCH15LI has an operating temperature range of 0 to 40°C. The device also complies with all relevant international safety standards as well as EMC compliance to EN55022 'B', CISPR 22 'B' and FCC Part 15 'B'.
