Constant Current Charger
The JAC891-46 Schauer’s Battery Charger transforms the 115-220 VAC into 12 VDC at about 100,000 Hz (1667 times faster than conventional charger), which requires a much smaller transformer. This results in a unit of smaller size, low weight, and improved efficiency. The JAC1202 battery maintainer and charger uses sophisticated electronic circuitry with microchips. All present day computers use switch-mode technology.
Multi Stage charging cycle
Stage 1: Constant Current Mode (CC)
The charger changes to constant current 2 amps. When the battery voltage reaches up to 14.6 V, the charging stage changes from (CC) Constant Current to CV (Constant Voltage) mode.
Stage 2: Constant Voltage Mode (CV)
The charger holds the battery at 14.6 V and the current slowly reduces. When the current reaches at 0.5 C (C= Battery Capacity), this point called the Switching Point. The Switching Point is one of the great features of this battery charger that it can adjust the current automatically according to the battery capacity. Other chargers without microprocessors are not capable to adjust the current automatically.
Stage 3: Standby Voltage Mode
The charger maintains the battery voltage at 13.5 V and current slowly reduces to zero. Charger can be left connected indefinitely without harming the battery.
This charger typically ships with alligator clips, allowing customer to adapt the charger to their specific needs.
