Protected Against Reverse Polarity & Short Circuit-Image

Sealed Lead Acid Battery Charger

Cell-Con provides a safe and effective Lead Acid battery charger solution for charging SLA batteries using a 3 step charge algorithm.

In the first phase, the charger will fill the battery to 80-90% capacity.

Once at this level, the charger goes into the second phase to fill the remaining 10-20% of capacity until a low level current is detected or a timer expires (depending upon the specific model).

The third and final phase reduces the charge current to a safe level where the battery can be left attached to the charger indefinately.

Unlike traditional 'taper' chargers, Cell-Con Lead Acid battery chargers utilize a constant current level in the first mode.

When the battery voltage rises to the maximum cycle voltage during charging, the chargers do not immediately change to float mode. Instead, the charger will look for a low level current (current detection) or the expiration of time to terminate constant voltage mode.

When the constant voltage mode begins, the battery is already charged to 80-90% of full capacity and can be used at this point if desired. Allowing phase two to conclude ensures that the battery will receive the remaining 10-20% capacity.

Once the low level current is detected, or the timer expires, the constant voltage level of theLead Acid battery charger is reduced to a safe value (going into float mode) where the battery can be left on indefinately without risk of overcharge.

Cell-Con Incorporated is a U.S. manufacturer of standard and custom power systems consisting of battery chargers, battery packs, and value added services.

Cell-Con chargers are designed to charge battery packs comprising of lithium ion (Li-Ion), nickel metal hydride (NiMH), nickel cadmium (NiCd), and sealed lead acid (SLA) cell chemistries. Battery packs are typically assembled with these cell chemistries, but can also include alkaline and silver oxide chemistries.

Years of design and development have resulted in the unique ability to function as a single source for reliable, high quality electronic products to the OEM market. These products and services, coupled with our low lead time and attention to customer needs result in valued business relationships between Cell-Con and its partners.

Standard Battery Chargers

Cell-Con offers an extensive line of stocked battery chargers that consist of over 70 different models. Finding an appropriate battery charger solution for most Lithium Ion, Lithium Polymer, NiMH, NiCd, or Lead Acid applications can be accomplished with ease by selecting a product from this offering. Because these battery chargers are in stock, samples and small quantity orders are available for immediate shipment (production volumes scheduled to meet customer demands).

Standard features for all chargers include:
• CE, UL, Medically approved models
• Universal input (90-264VAC / 47-63Hz) for worldwide use
• LED status indicator
• Compact lightweight design
• 16W, 35W and 60W versions
• Custom and waterproof versions available
• Private labeling capabilities
• Multi position charging configurations available

Custom Battery Chargers

Cell-Con provides both single and multi-position custom battery chargers to original equipment manufacturers when a standard, stocked charger will not fulfill the specific requirements of an application. Because of our extensive industry experience and dedicated team of experts, custom tailored charging solutions will be identified, developed, and delivered to meet the needs of the simplest design to those with complex specifications. Examples of the features our custom battery chargers have included are as follows:

• Smart Battery / Smart Charger
• Battery Fuel Gauge
• Battery Pack Protection
• Cell Balancing
• Encryption / Authentication
• Pack Integration
• Open Frame / Specified form
• Custom Enclosures
• Multi-Position Configurations

Custom Battery Packs

Acting as a value added assembler for major cell manufacturers (Sanyo, Kokam, Saft, etc.), Cell-Con provides custom battery packs assembled with lithium ion (Li-Ion), lithium polymer (Li-Poly), nickel metal hydride (NiMH), nickel cadmium (NiCd), sealed lead acid (SLA), lithium, alkaline, or silver oxide cell chemistries. Whether the pack is a smart (SMBus) assembly or a basic design, has low or high capacity specifications (in excess of 80Ah), in small or large production volume, a safe, reliable, and appropriate solution will be provided.

Please feel free to contact us for additional information, to order custom chargers or battery packs, or to inquire about availability of stocked battery chargers.
