So, what on vendors promised?
- Charge of accumulators Li-ion, Li-pol, LiFe, NiCd, NiMH, PbAcid (lead all types)
- Completely the automatic process of a charge control by the microcontroller. A cut-off on a current and pressure for the litiyevykh of accumulators, on temperature and? V for the nickel. For all types — shut-down on the maximum time and capacity.
- Training of NiCd and NiMH. A balancing charge of Li-pol of accumulators (for batteries with several banks)
- Current of a charge to 5А, discharge — to 1А.
- The screen with indications of current pressure, a current, capacities. Outswapping of all these parameters on the computer and creation of schedules.
AppearanceAt discovery of sending we seen here such box:
In which we will find out charging, wires (for a supply of the most charging and for connection to accumulators), the instruction … And all. The power unit in a set are not present
Connector of a supply and thermal sensor (it — an output for the computer):
Jumpers ±, and slots of equalization:
The design delicacy who is pretend to be the heat sink:
The present heat sink and the hologram confirm authenticity:
Here it, are closer:
The matter is that because of light recurrence of the circuit, this charging are cop by respect factory everyone, it are known at least about 4 variants not original chargings. At the price they differed not so are strong, and here on quality — as it will turn out. Here good link to the review of the original and copy.
The mechanism of check on originality are interesting — we erased a covering, we driven in serial number and the code on
site of the vendor.
To me carrying (it are a joke, if that. I specially spending for $10 more)
That are interesting, second time will not transit number:
I so understands, to buy original charging and to copy it number at vendors of spears will not quit.
At the left — a wire with two "bananas" for connection to the most device.
And to T-Connectors to connectors it are connect or a wire with crocodiles (on the right), or here the such:
By the way, nobody knew, where all such such connector are us here:
Still in a set there are a wire of a supply with two crocodiles — the device are omnivorous and could eat any pressure from 10в to 18в. Though charging for a notebook, though the automobile accumulator:
Still there are an instruction in English (truth with errors):
In which on the last page there are a directory of accessories:
90 % from which in the presence of a soldering iron it are possible not to buy.
InteriorsWe turned off the 4th screw at the left, and 4 on the right.
Then it are necessary to move apart the upper part of casing in the sides, and to pull out the lower plate with the board attach on it:
The board fastened three screws:
Key transistors was lubricat by thermopaste and nestled on the lower plate.
The charger are construct on normal Atmega:
On some instruments it are not disabl even not from reading that allowed to be play a little with an insertion.
It are assembled accurately, fluxing agent are wash off.
UsageWe connected a supply, the screen with an inscription of SkyRc Imax-B6 there and then lit up. Buttons of switching-on/shut-down it are not provid.
After that we got to the main menu.
To be mov on it it are possible Stop buttons and"<". В главном меню находятся: выбор программы зарядки в зависимости от типа аккумулятора, меню настроек:
And as points of saving and loading of user preferences.
To select point it are possible pushing of "Enter". Here, for an example menu item of a charge of Li-pol:
One more pushing of "Enter" we passed in an editing mode of parameters. The in-out parameter blinked at this time. It are possible to change the maximum current, and pressure (are more exact, an amount banok — pressure the multiple 3.7)
At each stage protection against the fool worked. Charging will not begin, if: polarity of the battery are confus, too low or too high voltage, pressure did not correspond to type of the battery or an amount banok, and td.
after exhibiting of all in parameter, long pushing of "Enter" it are possible to begin charging. The first two minutes the battery will be charg by a current of 0,2 amperes — one more of points of protection against the fool, and a method of determination of an amount banok:
In two minutes the current will increase to the maximum:
In the course of charging it could change, in the end to decrease to 0,1А.
Designations on the screen:
LI1S — Li-pol the accumulator, one bank. 1,3А — a current current, 4,2В — current pressure, CHG — in abbreviated form from Charging, a charge. 003:49 — time in minutes and seconds from the moment of the beginning of the program, 00046 — "capacity" in milliampere-hours "pour in" in the battery during charging, or receiv from the battery at a discharge. Naturally, the second digit will be less, and and it are necessary to be guided by it when sampling capacity of the battery.
Connection to the computer
In the most charging in the menu turned on here: User set program-> USB/Temp select-> USB Enable
Any USB-UART the adapter are necessary only.
+5 volt can be not connect, they was necessary only for a supply of the sensor. TX connecting to RX (reception) of the adapter, GND, accordingly to the earth. Speed 9600, but it knew LogView.
The plug it are possible to use here the such:
We built graphics of a charge discharge in Log View
To begin with we gone on ofsayt and we downloaded there the last version (at present 126.96.36.1995). It are still good to download update 188.8.131.520, and to place in a folder with the program.
However, the program with already install update can be download at me on a direct reference.
Setting are not required, simply we unpacked and we launched LogView.exe. Actually, it are possible to look at the main adjustments in video:
Here my tuned preset for schedules to open Graphic — Open graphic draft. Graphic — Save graphic draft for setting by default at each start.
Any broad gull it are possible to save File — Save As, and then to open and work with it further — to adjust parameters of display and to do of it a picture. The program not especially difficult, it are possible to clear up for an hour at random. There are a Russian translation (where finding I does not remember, on my link already are), but it not the complete. And English too — in menus primordially German words whom already it were necessary to learn — Entlaned — discharge, often come across to Laden — a charge. Zyklus — a cycle.
Charge almost the complete lithium - the polymeric accumulator:
Right after beginning pressure it were stabiliz on 4.2 volts, and the current starting to fall.
Charge of NiMH of the accumulator big current:
Through particular time intervals pressure were disconnect, for measurement of pressure of the most accumulator.
Discharge of NiMH of the accumulator:
Anything interesting. A current in 1А throughout all discharge while pressure doing not fall to 0.8В.
Connection of a thermal sensor Same picture:
As the sensor shirokorasprostranenny LM35 from National Semiconductor are us. Connection the elementary — a supply to a supply, the earth to the earth,
Well and it are necessary to include point in the menu (if you ungear it) — User set program-> USB/Temp select-> Temp Cut off (dec)
To buy anywhere, though in chip-and-dipe, though in elekonte.
Sense in that on the termination of charging of nickel accumulators all energy br to them will be transform to heat that caused heating of the accumulator. Hence, time the accumulator heating up, meant were charg.
- There are no power unit. On a copy of b6ac permanently sworn that internal bp died in couple of days. I solving a question purchase for 500 roubles here such general-purpose BP:
- Are not able to charge with equalization of NiMH accumulators. As changeover of LaCrosse not prokatit though the same AND functions, simultaneously could charge/discharge/train only the one accumulator. No to charge a national team to bank from several accumulators probably, ha add pressure in the user profile equal (to pressure on bank) * (an amount banok), but equalization worked only on Li-pol
- Small current of discharge. For capacious accumulators, for example on 5amper-clocks 1А it will be only 0.2С, and they could work on currents 2-3С and more. Under loading to check up it will not turn out.
