Lead-acid charge board with wide range of input voltages

Custom design and manufacture of state-of-the-art battery chargers, UPS, and power supplies for OEMs in a hurry?

DC-DC solar charge controllers
This is a microprocessor controlled SEPIC topology DC/DC converter programmed to perform as a battery charger.

Theory of Operation:
When input voltage is applied the following operations proceed.

1. The processor Initializes
2. All 3 LEDs come on for 1 second in self-test
3. The power Red LED turns on
4. The processor waits briefly until the output has a voltage greater than 1.0V (battery detect)
5. If the processor detects that a battery is connected, the processor then turns on the PWM with current set to high (about 1.7Amps)
6. The Yellow LED turns on indicating charging.
7. When the battery is charged to 13.65V the Green LED turns on to to indicate a full battery.
8. The battery continues to trickle charge (about 20mA) to balance and maintain the battery.

Can be used as a solar charge controller
Can use close to the battery to boost voltage after a long wire run, for example on POE.
Output voltage can be higher or lower than the input voltage.

Form factor and custom features can be redesigned to OEM requirements.
