BC-2200 Modular Float Battery Charger & Power Supply

Model # BC-2200

Product Description

The BC-2200 is a Float Battery Charger and Power Supply based on a modular, redundant platform design utilizing industrial switch mode technology. Hot-swappable Intelligent Power Modules (iPMs) are available at 12Vdc, 400W, 20.0A (Max), 20.0A (Rated) and 24Vdc, 400W, 10.0A (Max), 10.0A (Rated). Multiple iPMs in a single chassis provide redundancy (N+1, N+2, etc.) and will continue to operate if the User Interface Module (UIM) fails. Featuring industrial construction, models are available in 2, 4-slot chassis options. It is compatible with vented lead-acid (VLA), valve regulated lead-acid, and nickel-cadmium (Ni-Cd) battery types.

FAQs

What are the mounting options for the charger?
The BC-2200 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-2200?
The BC-2200 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-2200 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.

Can an iPM be replaced (hot swapped) while the charger is on?
Yes, the charger never needs to be powered down to replace an iPM.
