Bel Power Solutions announces the BCL25-700-8, a 22/25 kW bi-directional liquid-cooled on-board inverter battery charger with export functionalities for hybrid (HEV) or fully electric (EV) vehicles, as well as medium and heavy-duty on- and off-highway vehicles. The BCL25-700-8 is parallelable up to 4 units in charge mode, with typical efficiency up to 94%.
With the BCL25-700-8, it is possible to connect this inverter charger directly to an EVSE charging station or for connection directly to the public grid (Single-Phase: 190 – 264 Vac or Three-Phase 330 – 528 Vac) to charge your HV batteries. The output voltage covers a wide variety of HV batteries in the range from 240 Vdc to 800 Vdc with a constant output current of 60 A. When not running from the engine, but running from the HV batteries, you are also able to export up to 22/25 kW (400Vac/50Hz or 480Vac/60Hz) to power all your three-phase AC equipment. Additional highlights include active HVDC interlock monitoring, with overtemperature, output overvoltage and overcurrent protection, and an operating coolant temperature of -40°C to +60°C at full power, and up to 50% power at +75°C and operating ambient temperature +80°C.
The BCL25-700-8 meets international standards, including IEC 61851-21-1 (EMC requirements), e-Mark certification (ECE R10.6), SAE J1455 (environmental), IP67 and IP6K9K (protection), SAE J1939 CAN bus interface for control and monitoring, supporting the connection with the EVSE with connector Type 1 and Type 2 according to IEC 62196 and communication with the EVSE according to IEC61851-1 Mode 2 and Mode 3. The BCL25-700-8 including the connector kit (Part No. BCL25-700-CON-KIT) will be available from Digi-Key.
