EVO Data Sheet

The “EVO” Series battery charger is a SCR-based float battery charger for stationary/utility applications. Its next-generation design incorporates all the quality and reliability of the original AT charger series and offers a built-in health and diagnostics system (patent-pending).

  • The EVO is designed to help with compliance to NERC PRC-005 standards and other utility industry requirements.
  • The charger’s open architecture design allows for flexible operation including user-configured alarm relays and field-upgradable firmware.
  • Its built-in health system continuously runs self-diagnostics to provide status notifications, alerting you of any issues in real-time.
  • Pressing the Health button initiates a system diagnosis of all parameters and components to verify that the charger is operating properly.

Specifications

  • 24, 48, 130 and 260Vdc output voltage
  • 6 – 25 amps DC output current
  • CSA-NTRL/C Certified
  • See data sheet for details
