- Operating software

The operating program in this charger is executed with mutual links and communications with every components to prevent any possible error, so it introduces the maximum safety. Especially, the charging algorithm is so multifarious that you can select the best program to suit your requirement. And BC8DX has a large LCD for showing various informations including charge/discharge graphs during the process.

- High-power dual output circuit

BC8DX employs the circuit that features two totally independent but identical high-power outputs which are powered as much as 160watts each. As a result, it can charge or discharge up to 44 cells of NiCd/NiMH or 16 series of Lithium batteries simultaneously. Furthermore, the twin-fan cooling system is so efficient that can hold such a power without any trouble of running the circuit.

- Dual Individual voltage balancer for Lithium batteries

BC8DX has individual cell voltage balancers at both outputs. So it does not need any balancer separately when charging Lithium batteries (LiIo/LiPo/LiFe) for voltage balancing.

- Balance individual cells on discharge

BC8DX also can monitor and balance individual cells of the Lithium battery pack during the discharge process as well as ‘FAST' and ‘STORAGE' mode. If the voltage of any one cell varies abnormally, the process will be stopped with the error message.

- Accept various types of Lithium battery

BC8DX can accept three types of Lithium batteries - LiIo, LiPo and LiFe. They have different characteristics by their chemistry. You can select any one of them that you are going to process before the job. For their specifications, refer 'Warnings and safety notes' section.

- Maximum safety

Delta-peak sensitivity : The automatic charge termination program works on the principle of the Delta-peak voltage detection. (NiCd/NiMH)

Auto-charge current limit : When charging NiCd or NiMH at 'AUTO' current mode, you can set the upper limit of charge current to avoid from feeding high current to the battery. This is very useful when charging the low impedance and small capacity NiMH battery in 'AUTO' mode.

Capacity limit : The charging capacity always calculated by multiple of the charging current and time. If the charging capacity exceeds the limit the process will be terminated automatically when you set the maximum value.

Temperature limit : The temperature of the battery on charging or discharging will be raised by its internal chemical reaction. If you set the limit of temperature the process will be expired forcibly when the limit has been reached.

Processing time limit : You can also restrain the maximum processing time to prevent any possible defect.

- Cyclic charging/discharging

Perform 1 to 10 cycles of charge>discharge or discharge>charge continually for battery refreshing and balancing at both outputs.

- PC based analysis using USB communication

For technical expert, BC8DX offers PC based program can analysis the characteristic of the battery via USB port. It shows a graph of voltage, current, capacity and temperature curves. It also shows the individual voltage of each cell in the Lithium battery pack. This program can run on both outputs with single USB link to PC.

Adaptors for single battery pack:
EAC133: PolyQuest
EAC134: Align
EAC138: Kokam/Graupner
EAC139: Outrage XP/FlightPower/ThunderPower

Adapters for balancing multiple battery packs:
EAC153: PolyQuest
EAC154: Align
EAC158: Kokam/Graupner
EAC159: Outrage XP/FlightPower/ThunderPower
