APLC: AC input lithium battery chargers

The APLC series is a rugged, intelligent and sophisticated 450 watt charger that can be programmed to charge lithium-ion (Li-ion) or lithium polymer (LiPo) batteries. With IEC and CE certification pending, universal AC input and a wide operating temperature range (-20°C to 70°C), this product is especially suited for high end industrial applications.

The APLC optional status and control signals can be user defined. An informative LED display indicates charging conditions, battery and AC status. The charger is controlled by an embedded microcontroller that contains software developed by Chargetek, allowing for application specific customization. Simplified fixed voltage/current chargers are also available.

The charger is available in a number of output voltage/current variations with optional SMBus Level 2, SMBus Level 3 communication and controls. Models are available for typical 2S, 4S, 8S, 10S and 12S applications, as well as custom configurations for less demanding applications. The charger is easily mountable in two orientations.
