Battery charger upgrade has improved efficiency and greater flexibility

Lincad : 19 June, 2014  (New Product)
Lincad announces the release of its Caravel Mk2 charger for lithium ion power systems, as well as a wide range of other types of battery technologies. The Caravel Mk2 Charger is an enhanced replacement for the in-service Caravel Charger which has seen front line service with British and international armed forces for over 13 years.
Battery charger upgrade has improved efficiency and greater flexibility
Offering a significant power delivery improvement on its predecessor, the Caravel Mk2 can effectively halve charging times, at the same time as delivering improved efficiency and greater flexibility in the battery types that can be recharged. The power delivery of up to 500W is achieved from a universal AC mains input within its ruggedised 340x210x170mm frame.
 
By using a series of interchangeable Battery Interface Adaptors (BIAs), a wide range of battery types and technologies, from Li-ion to lead acid can be recharged, with an output running voltage of anywhere from 2 to 58VDC. It also provides reconditioning and management functions for both intelligent and passive batteries and can be configured to interface with a PC using USB1.1 connectivity for central fleet monitoring and in-service software upgrades.
 
The Caravel Mk2 Charger can also be configured to charge products not originally intended for use with a third party charger, making it possible to bring an entire battery fleet under the management umbrella of a single charging unit.
 
Active thermal management is employed to maintain peak function even in the most challenging environments, and by using a convection only process, lower acoustic and electromagnetic profiles are achieved than in similar force-cooled units.
 
To complement its backlit LCD user interface, the charger has its own LED display, providing functional and battery charge status feedback which is visible from a distance, even in full sunlight. With its all-metal construction, the Caravel Mk2 Charger is suitable for use in any sheltered environment, military or commercial, where a flat surface and mains supply are available.
