Description

The Blue Smart IP67 Battery Charger is THE wireless solution to monitor voltage and current, to change settings and to update the charger when new features become available. With Bluetooth, the functionality of the IP67 charger is enhanced and is similar to that of our IP22 and IP65 chargers. Completely encapsulated: waterproof, shockproof and ignition protected. Water, oil or dirt will not damage the Blue Smart IP67 Battery Charger. The casing is made of cast aluminium and the electronics are moulded in resin.

Features

Completely encapsulated: waterproof, shockproof and ignition protected

Water, oil or dirt will not damage the Blue Power IP67 Charger. The casing is made of cast aluminium and the electronics are moulded in resin.

Start interrupt

The models with suffix (1+Si) feature a second current limited output which is always powered as long as 180 – 265 VAC is present on the input. This output can for example be used to prevent starting of a vehicle before unplugging the battery charger (start interrupt function).

The highest efficiency ever

Setting a new industry standard: with 92% efficiency or better, these chargers waste three to four times less heat. And once the battery is fully charged, power consumption reduces to less than a Watt, some five to ten times better than the industry standard.

Adaptive 4-stage charge algorithm: bulk – absorption – float – storage

The Blue Power Charger features a microprocessor controlled ‘adaptive’ battery management. The ‘adaptive’ feature will automatically optimise the charging process relative to the way the battery is being used.

Less maintenance and aging when the battery is not in use: the Storage Mode

The storage mode kicks in whenever the battery has not been subjected to discharge during 24 hours. In the storage mode float voltage is reduced to 2,2 V/cell (13,2 V for a 12 V battery) to minimise gassing and corrosion of the positive plates. Once a week the voltage is raised back to the absorption level to ‘equalize’ the battery. This feature prevents stratification of the electrolyte and sulphation, a major cause of early battery failure.

Protected against overheating

Can be used in a hot environment such as a machine room. Output current will reduce as temperature increases up to 60°C, but the charger will not fail.

Two LEDs for status indication

Yellow LED: bulk charge (blinking fast), absorption (blinking slow), float (solid), storage (off)
Green LED: power on.
