GlobTek announces availability of a high energy efficiency Li-Ion battery charger product family. The GTM91128 family has options for 1 cell, 2 cell or 3 cell Li-Ion charging. The family has been qualified to the California Energy Commission (CEC) and the Department of Energy (DOE) regulations for Battery Chargers. Compliance to the CEC battery charger regulations has been mandatory for consumer products for several years, and for all products (exempting medical products) since January 2017. The DOE regulations which go into effect on June 13 of 2018 will preempt the CEC regulations on that date.
The GTM91128 series of Li-Ion Chargers are available in versions delivering 4.2V, 8.4V, or 12.6V at 1-1.5 A to address single- or multiple-battery configurations, the GTM91128 families of smart Li-Ion battery chargers from GlobTek offer three charging methods: conditioning, constant current, and constant voltage. The universal-input devices have a minimum current charge termination technique with timer as back up, with LED indication of charging and fully charged states. An additional feature of the smart battery charger family is that they have user-interchangeable plugs for seamless international operation.
“Today’s smart devices require smart battery systems to run them, and our GTM91128 family of battery chargers gives you the flexibility to charge single or multiple sets of batteries with intelligent management”, Ed Seaman, GlobTek VP of Sales, points out. “In addition, the ability to provide guaranteed international compatibility to the customer significantly simplifies infrastructure issues from inventory to regulatory.”
Additional features of the GTM91128 battery charger family include built-in over charge and damaged-cell detection, with a battery over-temperature protection option also available. A custom battery cradle can also be designed for specific battery form factor, if desired. All appropriate safety and EMC approvals are done and available.
These Globtek Li-Ion battery chargers have international safety approvals for most application space, including IEC 60601-1, IEC 60950-1, IEC 60335-1 and IEC 61558-1. Please contact a GlobTek sales team member, for price and availability of this product.
