Traction battery charger Amperis SMF

Traction battery charger Amperis SMF

The SMF-PulseMix2 is a revolutionary traction battery charger, designed for conventional and opportunity charging applications. It is based on a new power conversion technology, featuring an unprecedented combination of very high efficiency, unity power factor (PFC), programing flexibility and precise charge control.

The charging curve is an enhanced version of the standard WSa (Pulsed Wa). Thanks to the ultra-filtered output current and the PulseMix2 technology, this charger ensures a perfect mixing of the electrolyte (without using air-pumps), it reduces the water consumption and the temperature rise of the battery, and it minimizes energy consumption.

The SMF is controlled by the new digital board Amperis G-01, equipped with alphanumeric display & keyboard, Charge History Logger, Programmable Clock and Calendar, Audible Alarm and Connectivity package, compatible with wireless Battery Identification Modules and the WEB based Fleet Management System DoctorFleet.com. With the control board G-01, the programmable features of the SMF chargers are almost infinite.

CHARGING CURVE

Modified WSa (DIN 41773), with Automatic Weekly Equalization, Maintenance and Manual Desulphation cycle.

PROTECTION

WRONG BATTERY

If the battery voltage is outside the acceptable limits, the charger remains in stand-by mode and gives error/warning message.

ELECTRONIC OVERLOAD PROTECTION

Complete protection in case of output short circuit or overload.

ANTI-ARCING

STANDARD: When the battery is connected, no arcing is generated at the connectors.
OPTIONAL: Anti-arcing protection in case of battery disconnection while the charge is in progress.

POWER-ON SELF-TEST

Every time the unit is powered, an automatic self-test of the power electronics and the control boards is executed in less than 10 seconds. In case of fault, the unit remains in safe stand-by mode and gives fault messages.

BLACK-OUT OF THE AC INPUT

The charger features an intelligent management of the AC input black-outs.
When a black-out of the AC input occurs, all the data related to the charge cycle that was in progress are saved in the Charge History Logger, and remains available for future review.
When the AC input is restored, the charger restarts from the exact point of interruption, and it completes the charge cycle normally.
The charger adds a random delay on start (from 3 to 20 seconds). When many chargers are connected to the same AC source, this feature prevents all the chargers from turning on simultaneously and causing a high AC input current spike.

AUTOMATIC SHUTDOWN ON BATTERY DISCONNECTION

If the battery is disconnected while the charge is in progress, the charger turns-off automatically within 3 seconds and a specific message is saved in the Charge History Log.

SAFETY TIMER

An independent safety timer turns the charger off in case of malfunction of the main control unit.
