Ault announced its BCM family of wide-range battery chargers for Nickel Metal Hydride (NiMH) and Nickel Cadmium (NiCad) topologies. The BCM series includes 12 models for each battery topology and can charge multiple cell packs, including 3 o 6, 5 to 10 and 8 to 12 cells
Ault’s BCM family meets the growing needs for battery chargers for portable electronic consumer products, home health care equipment, personal information appliances (PIAs), and data acquisition equipment.
One of the key features of the BCM family is the programmable controller, which adds flexibility for OEMs by offering users a choice of three charger pack sizes and four different charge lengths; 1.5, 3, 6, or 9 hours.
The BCM fast charge varies based on the battery pack size. The 3 to 6 cell charges up to 1.5 A; the 5 to 10 cell charges up to 1.2 A; and the 8 to 12 cell charges up to 1.0 A.
Constructed in a black polycarbonate case measuring 4.22 inches L × 2.60 inches W × 1.51 inches H, the charger weighs 13 ounces and has an IEC 320-with-ground configuration.
