The efficiency reached by the battery after the charging process, the absence of electro-magnetic troubles and the diagnostics that ensures a complete protection against short circuit, overheating or wrong connection to the battery are common features of every product belonging to the range BC Battery Controller.
To satisfy the needs of professional customers, BC Battery Controller has developed an innovative charging algorithm: BC Pro 4S is internally controlled by a microprocessor, which monitors in real-time the current status of the battery and executes autonomously 8 stages of charge:
1. Initialization: the device checks if one or more cells are shorted, in order to verify that the battery is in a proper condition to be recharged/recovered.
2. Recovery: if the battery is deep discharged (battery voltage starting from 1.25 V), the device tries to recover it, taking it back to a higher voltage.
3. Soft Charge: if the battery is in a condition of significant undercharge, the device provides a light pulsing current to the battery, to overcome this critical phase.
4. Bulk Charge: the device provides full current to the battery, recovering about 85-90% of the battery capacity.
5. Desulfation / Absorption: the device provides a "controlled overcharge" to recover the remaining 10-15% of the battery capacity, through the desulfation/recovery the lead-acid cells (for low or medium sulfation).
6. Battery Analysis - End Cycle Test: the device stops providing current to the battery for a short time, in order to verify whether the battery is able to retain the charge received. This test is periodically repeated during the Maintenance.
7. Maintenance: the device keeps the battery in the best charge conditions for very long periods (even months) during which your vehicle is left unused, without any possible drawback (battery overcharge, battery overheating, water and/or electrolyte loss, etc).
8. Equalization: every 30 days during long term maintenance, the device executes an equalization charge in order to balance the battery lead-acid cells, avoiding electrolyte stratification within the cells.
