FAQs

What are the mounting options for the charger?
The BC-2000 Charger can be mounted to the wall, on the floor, on a shelf, or on an EIA 19-inch or 23-inch rack (front or rear).

What kind of batteries are compatible to charge with the BC-2000?
The BC-2000 can charge batteries of a wide variety of types. These include Vented Lead-Acid (VLA), Valve Regulated Lead-Acid (VRLA), and Nickel-Cadmium (Ni-Cd).

What operating conditions should the charger be kept in?
The operating temperature range of the unit is -40 – 158ºF (-40 – 70ºC), and the operating humidity range is 0-95% relative humidity.

What method of cooling does the charger employ?
The BC-1000 was designed to stay cool by venting air using natural convection, which avoids potential electrical and safety issues which often arise when fans are used.
