HOW IT WORKS
HISTORY OF CHARGING TECHNOLOGY
Conventional charging technology in terms of real change has remained stagnant for many years. Yes, there have been improvements as a result of modernised electronics, the development of software, etc, although these mainly affect equipment size rather than a step change in charging technology.
With today’s technology, neither a charger or battery has any means of communicating/understanding the other. Today’s technologies employed mean charging a lead-acid battery at a low rate of its capacity to avoid adverse chemical reactions and potential resultant damage to equipment and infrastructure from fires, explosions and the like.
The IPC Technology addresses the communication and time of charge problems mentioned above.
IPC Technology incorporates a closed loop system. This then provides a means whereby the system interrogates the battery and uses the information to create a charge profile. This profile is subjected to continual adjustment during the actual charging process in accord with the changing chemical state of a battery or bank of batteries. One never sees the same charge profile twice as no battery is identical nor in the exact same chemical state again. Having complete control via the IPC system of a charger/power source as well as the battery via the closed loop system results in substantial benefits. Accurate information results in optimum control of given circumstances.
KEY BENEFITS OF IPC TECHNOLOGY
• Speed of charge from minutes to hours as required
• Improved energy density due to accuracy of charge – longer battery cycle life of 50% plus
