PN Racing have released their S6 Multi Balance Charger. This DC charger has an idling current of approx 100mAh, with a max charge/discharge power of 80W & 8W. Able to work with NiCd, MiMH, LiIo, LiPo and LiFe cells, it has a chrge current range of 0.1 to 5A and a discharge current of 0.1 to 1A.
Optimized operating software
When charging or discharging, the smart charger offers an AUTO function that sets the feeding current or the cell count of the Lithium battery automatically. For Lithium batteries, this can prevent an over-charging situation which can lead to an explosion should the user not set the program correctly. Every program in the unit is programmed with safety monitoring to validate the user information to ensure maximum safety. These parameters can be set by the user.
High-power and high-performance circuit
The smart charger employs a circuit that has maximum output power of 50W. As a result, the smart charger can charge or discharge up to 15 cells of NiCd/NiMH and 6 series of Lithium batteries with maximum current of 5.0A.
Individual voltage balancer for Lithium batteries inside
Built into the smart charger is an individual-cell-voltage balancer. No external balancer is needed when charging Lithium batteries (LiIo/LiPo/LiFe) for balance charging.
Balance individual cells on discharge
The smart charger also can monitor and balance individual cells of the Lithium battery pack during the discharge process, as well as the charge process. If the voltage of any one cell varies abnormally, the process will be stopped with the error message.
Accept various types of Lithium battery
The smart charger can accept three types of Lithium batteries – LiIo, LiPo and LiFe. They have different characteristics by their chemistry, such as minimum, maximum, and charge termination voltages.
Lithium battery Fast and Storage mode
The smart charger offers additional Lithium programming. Fast charge reduces the charging time of the Lithium battery and the Storage mode controls the final voltage of the battery to be suit for long time storage.
5 data of different batteries programs can be stored and retrieved. These data files can be receptive at any time you need them without reprogramming.
The smart charger can perform 1 to 5 cycles of charge>discharge or discharge>charge for battery break in/refreshing and balancing.
PC based analysis using USB communication
For the advanced user, the smart charger INCLUDES a PC based program that can analyze the characteristic of the battery through the computers USB port. The software will graph voltage, current, capacity and temperature curves. It also shows the individual voltages of each cell in the Lithium battery pack.
Robust outer aluminum case
High-quality aluminum case is durable and very efficient to cool out the internal heat
Advanced temperature sensor cable port (sensor cable included)
An optional temperature probe contacting the surface of the battery to monitor the battery temperature during charging can be used.
