Press Release Summary:
Used as protective interface between battery and power supply, XCSBC Battery Charger Interface Module is rated for power supplies from 1-10 A. It is mainly used for DC backup so that battery acts as backup in case of power failure and power supply provides trickle-charge for battery to remain fresh. Occupying 1 in. of space on DIN rail, module features protection diodes, charging current limiting resistor, and protection fuses for battery.
Original Press Release:
Battery Back-up Charging Module
Carlisle, Pa- Automation Systems Interconnect is pleased to announce the release of their new Battery Back-up Charging Module.
The ASI battery charger interface module is used as a protective interface between the battery and a power supply. Based on the design features of this module it is possible to use a modular din rail mounted power supply as a battery charger while it is feeding the load. The battery charger module is also DIN rail mounted and only occupies 1 inch of space on the rail.
Rated for power supplies ranging from 1 to 10 A, the XCSBC Battery Charger Interface Module features protection diodes, charging current limiting resistor and protection fuses for the battery. The diode provides decoupling between the battery and the power supply while the resistor circuit limits the current charge to avoid overheating the battery thereby extending the life. In addition, the fuse circuit protects the battery and its wiring against short circuit. It is also possible to use these modules to connect two power supplies in parallel. The double diode can be used as oring diode for decoupling two power supply outputs.
The XCSBC Battery Charger Interface Module is mainly used for DC backup situations so that in the event of power failure, the battery acts as a backup. A unique feature of the XCSBC is that the power supply provides a trickle-charge making it possible for the battery to remain fresh unlike other battery chargers that quickly wear down. The ASI Battery Charger Interface Module is a low-cost reliable means using your power supply as a charger in those applications where you have battery back-up.
