Why Your Choice of Battery Charger is a Vital Part of your Genset Solution
Deep Sea Electronics has been designing and manufacturing battery chargers for the genset market for over 25 years. This article looks at the key advanced features of a DSE Charger and highlights why using premium quality products will enhance any genset application.
There are a wide number of battery chargers available within the marketplace all offering different voltage and current ratings. DSE has studied the requirements of the generator industry and as a result has developed a range of 2, 5 and 10 Amp battery chargers that deliver exceptional performance in the toughest environments.
All chargers are designed using switched mode technology, ensuring they provide premium efficiency across their entire operating temperature range. The chargers are also specified to provide constant current and constant voltage when charging to reduce overall charging times. The ability to provide both constant current and voltage enables DSE chargers to be used as power supplies to supply devices additional to the battery. Typically this feature is used to supply control and instrumentation circuits within the genset panel.
All chargers are designed with the ability to take an input voltage of up to 305 volts AC, which ensures they continue to operate in areas of the world that are prone to regular high AC conditions. The chargers are also designed to accept a wide AC voltage input ensuring they are suitable for use in all global markets, enabling customers to carry stock of only one charger variant.
One of the key features of our chargers is that they include intelligent CCT protection to provide over current and reverse polarity protection as standard. This ensures that if users of the charger were to create one of these conditions the charger is intelligent in its design to protect itself without suffering damage. Once this condition has been removed the charger will safely recover without the need for service or repair.
The chargers design also features technology to recover low voltage batteries without the requirement for any additional equipment or re-setting of the charger. This feature is highly valuable when sites are in a remote location as possible visits to rectify battery issues can be avoided. All chargers are also fitted with premium temperature specified capacitors to ensure DSE chargers provide a long life time of operation.
There is more to the design of a battery charger than may first be apparent. We believe as with all our products that it is essential to incorporate advanced functionality for the user that provides a unique solution for their business. This approach ensures DSE sets itself apart from products available elsewhere in the market.
