Tycon Power Systems


Tycon 48VDC 210W Smart Battery Charger.Low voltage detect load control. Regulated load voltage output. Charges AGM GEL and WET Lead Acid batteries.



The TP-BC series of smart battery chargers provide up to 210W of total power. Part of the power is allocated to the regulated load output and remaining power is allocated to battery charging.

The load output is regulated. Also the load output will turn off when the battery voltage is low to prevent over discharge of the batteries which can shorten the useable life of the batteries. Load output will turn back on automatically when batteries have sufficient charge. The charger auto-recovers from a power failure so no user action is necessary.

The charger has various protections for short circuit, overvoltage protection, overcurrent and reverse battery. It operates over a wide temperature range making it suitable for industrial applications.

The battery charger will not work without a battery connected.

A solar panel and solar charge controller can be added to the system if supplemental power from solar is desired. A Wind Turbine can be added if wind power is available.

There are various LEDS on the front panel to see status-at-a-glance of the Load Output, Charging Condition and AC Power Condition.
