Optimized Operating Software
The software in B6 Duo automatically controls the current rate during the charging or discharging process. This feature can prevent the user from overcharging batteries which could lead to damage or injury. If the charger detects a malfunction, the circuit automatically disconnects and an alarm will sound, The operating functions of the B6 Duo are controlled through a two-way communication process in order to maintain maximum safety and minimize errors. All of these functions and settings are easily configured by the user.
Internal Independent Lithium Battery Balancers
Each channel of the B6 Duo employs an individual-cell voltage balancer eliminating the need for an external balancer for balance charging.
Balancing individual cells during battery discharging
During the discharging process, the B6 Duo can monitor and balance each individual cell of the battery. If the voltage of any single cell is abnormal, an error message will display and the discharge process will automatically end.
Charges Most Popular Lithium Batteries
The B6 Duo is compatible with the three most common Lithium chemistry batteries, Li-Ion, LiPo and LiFe
Multiple Lithium Battery Charge Modes
The B6 Duo's programming allows for Fast Charge, Balance Charge or Storage Charge Modes for LiPo, Li-Ion, and LiFe batteries.
Fast Charge Mode: Reduces charging time, but does not balance the cells, this mode only charges the battery to approximately 90% capacity.
Balance Charge Mode: Monitors individual cell voltage, keeping the cells within an acceptable voltage range and charges the pack to peak capacity.
Storage Charge Mode: Used for long-term battery storage. Adjusts the voltage level so the battery will not be damaged during long term storage.
Delta Peak Technology for Maximum Safety
The automatic charge termination program utilizes Delta-Peak voltage detection. When the battery's voltage exceeds the threshold, the charge process is terminated automatically.
Automatic Charging Current Limit
The maximum charge rate can be manually set when charging NiCd or NiMH batteries. The B6 Duo will auto-detect when the batteries are fully charged and shut off, even with low impedance NiMH packs.
Capacity and Processing Time Limit
The charging capacity is calculated as the charging current multiplied by time. If the charging capacity exceeds the maximum limit set by the user, the process will terminate automatically. Additionally the user can set the maximum amount of charging time. If the charging time exceeds this limit, the process will terminate automatically.
The battery's internal chemical reaction causes the temperature of the battery to rise during the charging process. If the temperature exceeds the limit, the charging process will automatically terminate. * This function is available by connecting an optional temperature probe, which is not included in our package.
10 User Customizable Presets
The B6 Duo features 10 individually customizable presets so the user can store the charge and discharge parameters for any particular battery type. These presets can be recalled for the desired battery type without the need for any additional programming.
Cyclic Charging / Discharging
Batteries can be set to automatically Charge/Discharge or Discharge/Charge up to a maximum of 5 cycles.
