Universal Battery Support System
TOTAL BATTERY SUPPORT
CASP/1200 is a microprocessor-based precision instrument for maintaining any
rechargeable batteries at the peak of performance. As such, it is vital to the
operation of video and television equipment, aircraft systems, medical devices,
communications gear, portable computers and other battery powered equipment.
Through the systematic use of CASP/1200, battery operated equipment becomes more
reliable, safer and far more cost effective. In a word, CASP/1200 optimizes the
effectiveness of batteries as a component of electronic systems.
FUNCTIONS OF THE
CASP/1200 has six channels, which automatically process up to six
batteries of any type sequentially. The system performs the following functions:
By virtue of Christie’s ReFLEX charging technique, the system can be used to
recondition, or “rejuvenate”, NiCd batteries, even when these batteries have
deteriorated to the point that they will no longer hold a charge. This dramatic
capability by itself literally justifies the use of CASP/1200.
When a battery is connected to any one of the channels, the system senses the
type of battery, which is involved, and automatically provides the kind of
processing that the battery requires.
The system can analyze the condition of a battery, and report that condition
on an optional serial printer. It can be determined from the display or the
hard-copy printout what action should be taken. In this mode, the system can
analyze and report battery discharge capacity and battery charge capacity.
The system has the capability for different types of charging, as appropriate
to the kinds and conditions of the batteries being processed. This capability
includes fast charge, slow charge, dual-rate charge, and simultaneous charge of
up to six batteries. Charging can be very rapid, and many NiCd's can be charged
in as little as 30 minutes.
CASP/1200 is a sophisticated instrument, designed to make the
care and maintenance of rechargeable batteries simple and straightforward. The
system offers a number of key features and benefits as
An outstanding benefit of CASP/1200 is that it saves its own cost by
rejuvenating worn-out NiCd's, allowing them to be returned to useful service,
and by charging batteries more completely, improving their reliability and
extending their life.
ADVANCED PROCESSING METHODS
Christie’s exclusive ReFLEX charging process has numerous advantages over
other battery charging methods. Foremost among these is the ability to erase
“memory” and restore badly faded battery capacity. With the ReFLEX method,
batteries also get charged faster, are more fully charged, stay cooler, have
less cell imbalance and last appreciably longer.
