The BC-2500 is a Float Battery Charger and Power Supply based on a modular, redundant platform design. It utilizes high availability with uptime architecture. Available in 480W or 400W with hot-swappable Intelligent Power Modules (iPMs) with various ratings available at 24, 48, or 130 VDC. Multiple iPMs in a single chassis provide redundancy (N+1, N+2, etc.) and will continue to operate if the user interface module (UIM) fails. This ensures reliability for high availability/uptime applications. The BC-2500 features industrial construction and is available in 4 or 8-slot chassis options. It is compatible with vented lead-acid (VLA), valve regulated lead-acid, and nickel-cadmium (Ni-Cd) battery types.

What are the mounting options for the charger? The BC-2000 Charger can be mounted to the wall, on the floor, on a shelf, or on an EIA 19-inch or 23-inch rack (front or rear).
What kind of batteries are compatible to charge with the BC-2000? The BC-2000 can charge batteries of a wide variety of types. These include Vented Lead-Acid (VLA), Valve Regulated Lead-Acid (VRLA), and Nickel-Cadmium (Ni-Cd).
What operating conditions should the charger be kept in? The operating temperature range of the unit is -40 – 158ºF (-40 – 70ºC), and the operating humidity range is 0-95% relative humidity.
What method of cooling does the charger employ? The BC-2500 was designed to stay cool by venting air using natural convection, which avoids potential electrical and safety issues which often arise when fans are used.
Can an iPM be replaced (hot swapped) while the charger is on? Yes, the charger never needs to be powered down to replace an iPM.
