Intelligent charger can charge up to 15 NiMH/NiCD cells in series
May 06, 2011 // Julien Happich
Powersolve the PSCH30 Smart Charger, an intelligent battery charger that can automatically detect and charge 8 to 15 NiMH or NiCD cells, providing the necessary output to fully charge the cells and before it turns itself off. Output voltage, which varies depending on load, is from 9.6 to 18V and output current is from 500mA to 1.8A which can be switched to charge at 0.9 or 1.8A. Safety ground leakage current is below 0.5mA.
The charger features battery temperature monitor with over temperature shutdown. Overvoltage and short circuit protection are standard as is protection against reverse polarity. An LED status indicator confirms standby, charging, fully charged and error states. The PSCH30 features a universal AC input and incorporates an IEC320 C14 3 pin AC input connector. Powersolve can supply a variety of optional DC output connectors to suit specific needs. The charger comes in a 120x60x38mm desk top plastic enclosure and operate in the 0 to 40°C temperature range. It also complies with all relevant international safety standards as well as EMC compliance to EN55022 'B’, CISPR 22 'B’ and FCC Part 15 ’B’.
