EQUALizer - Detailed description with all the screen options
Pulsar EQUALizer balancer works on a different principle than most of the balancers on the market. When
hooked up to a unbalanced battery pack it will charge lower cells in expense of higher voltage cells
so there is no capacity loss. Current is determined based on the number cells and DeltaV between high and low cells. The lowest
V cell will receive highest charge while highest V cells will be discharged at a lower rate according to the number of
well charged cells. Only this principle allows currents to be lessened acordingly to the DeltaV. This alows packs to
be tuned with extreme precision and low currents when pack is near the stage of balanced saturation. For this
reason it is better to describe this device as an equalizer not a balancer.
EQUALizer has 3 working modes
1. TEST - Voltage monitoring for all individual cells in the pack under the load.
This real time option gives you an excellent diagnostic tool for your battery pack performance.
2. EQUAL - Independent precision equalization of cell voltages. Device is powered from the
battery pack. Uses extraordinary concept and algoritm to charge lower cells and discharge higher ones. Currents are related
to differences between cells. Progressing equalization makes these currents diminnish. This is probably the most refined way
to tune your battery pack.
3. FAST - Fast/Coarse balancing is especially important during the charging stage.
There are 3 current ranges you can set the balancing process onto: 250mA, 500mA, 750mA. Additonally
each channel (1-12) has its own adjustor ranging from a 10%-100% value of each range. At 250mA value, it ranges from25mA
to 250mA. At 0.75A value, from 75mA to 750mA. Of course real current flow is dependant on momentary DeltaV between cells and
you just set the limit. It is a usefull feature to set proper balancing values to match the capacity and type of cell
you are working on.Usually the balancing current should not exceed 1/8-1/10 C
Beside the current setting (I) the Equalizer
has a timer built in so you can set balancing process to:
1. OFF 2. 2 Hours 3. 4 Hours
EQUALizer services 3 type of cells
1. LiPo 2. LiIon
How the EQUALizer communicates with a charger ( V2.15)
It does through the temperature sensor port.
1.First command reduces the charging current
2. If voltage keeps rising it shuts off charging process
*Temperature sensing is still possible trough a Y connection
