Workbench Charger/Scanner


Workbench battery maintenance systemThe BST Model CS94 is the latest in our line of PC based Battery Maintenance Systems. Designed as a fully automatic, 80286 based Workbench Charger/Scanner it is capable of charging, discharging, monitoring and storing the full life cycle history of up to 94 cells in two groups of 47. Functional design flexibility allows the base system to be individually configured to support up to a total of 240 cells simultaneously. The system supports constant current charge rates from 5.0 to 50.0 Amps with automatic cutoff and audible notification of cell/battery abnormality. The PC based operating system is a user-friendly, menu-driven alternative to traditional systems and utilizes the latest in touch screen input. Operation is clean, fast and accurate.


Complimenting the above system, BST has developed the Model SBS-29 (not shown), a self-contained, standalone seaboard scanner capable of monitoring up to 29 cells and storing over 1000 scans in a remote operational environment. This fully autonomous scanner is capable of withstanding external pressures of 350 psi (24.6 kg/cm2) while completely immersed in a mineral oil bath for deep water, pressure compensated applications. The system draws less than four (4) watts from the battery being monitored during remote operation and no power while in its idle mode. Designed as an extension of the workbench charger/scanner it provides full scale collection of important performance data only obtainable during real-time mission performance.
