High Frequency Chargers

green-6-copia-CopiaHigh frequency chargers are lighter, more compact and significantly more efficient than traditional chargers.

With HF chargers, after the input mains voltage is rectified it is converted into a high operating frequency of 50kHz via a high frequency chopping circuit. This input then passes through a transformer and is rectified to the right DC voltage with almost no ripple. Due to the high frequency this transformation can be done with a small ferrite transformer which makes high frequency chargers suitable for all types of lead-acid batteries.

HF chargers are very cost effective as they have an efficiency of over 90%. In addition, as they don’t require a heavy transformer, their weight can be as little as a quarter to a fifth of that of a comparable traditional charger. This means they can be wall mounted if required, freeing up floor space and improving safety.

The benefits of using a high frequency charger are:

  • Maximum energy saving
  • Longer battery life
  • Reduced heat generation
  • Lower water consumption
  • Lighter weight and smaller size
