Equalizers

Balancers équilibreurs

Application

The battery equalizers are used for the batteries which are connected in series to keep the voltage of batteries are equal when the batteries are charging or discharging.

When the batteries work in series connection, the batteries voltage maybe will be not same due to the difference of each cell chemical composition and temperature. And each battery’s selfdischarge rate also different. So even when the batteries not work, their voltage of series batteries will be also different.

These differences will cause battery lost balance, this means one battery is overloaded and the other is insufficiently charged. The voltage difference will be increased with the battery repeated charge-discharge process. This will result in premature failure of the batteries.

These Equalizers can be used for trucks, busses, wheelchairs, golf carts, cleaning machines, scissor lifts,…

The 24V (2 x12V) battery equalizer is only suitable for lead acid batteries (VRLA).

The 48V (4 x 2.4 – 12V) and 72V (6 x 2.4 – 12V) battery equalizers are suitable for lead-acid batteries (VRLA), lithium iron phosphate (LFP), nickel cadmium (Ni-Cd) and nickel metal hydride (NiMH) batteries. The equalizer starts working when the voltage is above 2.4 V, which means that this equalizer can be used with a singlecell battery from 2.4 V to 12 V. A maximum of 2, 4 or 6 batteries can be connected to an equalizer at the same time.

With fewer batteries, the extra cable can be left free (positive and negative pole should be avoided) without affecting the balance effect. The equalizer is not affected by the way the batteries are connected, in series or in parallel, both can work.
