The Skylla-IP44 (3) features 3 isolated outputs. All outputs can supply the full rated output current. With IP44 protection, the unit has steel epoxy powder coated case and is splash proof. It will withstand the rigors of an adverse environment: heat, humidity and salt air. Circuit boards are protected with an acrylic coating for maximum corrosion resistance. Temperature sensors ensure that power components will always operate within specified limits, if needed by automatic reduction of output current under extreme environmental conditions. The LCD display enables status monitoring and allows easy adaption of the charge algorithm to a particular battery and its conditions of use. Several chargers can be connected in parallel and synchronised with help of the CAN bus interface. This is achieved by simply interconnecting the chargers with RJ45 UTP-cables. When only shallow discharges occur the absorption time is kept short in order to prevent overcharging of the battery. After a deep discharge the absorption time is automatically increased to make sure that the battery is completely recharged. If, in order to quickly charge a battery, a high charge current in combination with a high absorption voltage has been chosen, the Skylla-IP44 will prevent damage due to excessive gassing by automatically limiting the rate of voltage increase once the gassing voltage has been reached. The Storage mode kicks in whenever the battery has not been subjected to discharge during 24 hours. Every Skylla-IP44 comes with a battery temperature sensor. When connected, charge voltage will automatically decrease with increasing battery temperature. In order to compensate for voltage loss due to cable resistance, the Skylla-IP44 is provided with a voltage sense facility so that the battery always receives the correct charge voltage. As a result of the excellent control circuit, the Skylla-IP44 can be used as a power supply with perfectly stabilized output voltage if batteries or large buffer capacitors are not available.
