Intelligent Battery Charger-Analyzer for Large Battery Systems ( 10 A-hr to 100 A-hr )

( Advanced Version of the Earlier MasterCharger )

The  SuperMasterCharger is an instrument designed to charge, trickle charge and analyze ( discharge ) Nickel-Cadmium, Sealed Lead-Acid and other types of rechargeable batteries

With its multiple modes of operation ( Constant Current Charge [ dual and single rate ], Constant Current & Float Charge, Constant Current & Peak Stop Charge, Automatic Discharge [ analysis ], Resistance Discharge [ analysis ] and  Full Discharge [ deep cycle ] ), the SuperMasterCharger can satisfy the requirements of most large ( 10 A-hr to 100 A-hr ) rechargeable battery systems.

Additionally, the SuperMasterCharger’s high voltage capabilities also allow for it to charge and analyze two batteries simultaneously, making the SuperMasterCharger the most powerful aviation battery charger/analyzer available on the market today.

The instrument features safety interlocks to protect the operator, the charger and the battery in the event of reversed polarity connection, short circuit, open circuit ( no load ) and Over-voltage conditions.

Two large LED digital meters permit the simultaneous monitoring of voltage and current, while eight indicator lights display the status of the operation.

Other features include:

  • Storage ( nonvolatile ) of battery test profiles
  • Battery temperature monitoring
  • Microprocessor based timer with HH:MM and MM:SS timing selection
  • Interfacing to the BTAS-16 Computerized Battery Test System for monitoring, programming and control

Suggested Accessory:  we recommend the  VCM-100 to simplify the task of testing and calibrating the Charger-Analyzer.
