Bel Power Solutions announces bi-directional on-board charger

Bel Power Solutions has introduced the BCL25-700-8, a 22/25 kW bi-directional liquid-cooled on-board inverter battery charger with export functionality. Up to 4 BCL25-700-8 charging units can be connected in parallel, with efficiency near 94%.

Bel Power says it’s possible to connect this charger to a charging station or directly to the grid (190-264 VAC single-phase or 330-528 VAC three-phase) to charge EV batteries. The output voltage covers a wide variety of batteries from 240 VDC to 800 VDC, with a constant 60-amp output current. When running on battery power, the system can export up to 25 kW (400 VAC @ 50 Hz or 480 VAC @ 60 Hz) to power three-phase AC equipment.

Additional features include active HVDC interlock monitoring, with overtemperature, output overvoltage and overcurrent protection. It can deliver full power at operating coolant temperatures between -40° C and +60° C, and up to 50% power at +75° C at an operating ambient temperature of +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 will be available from Digi-Key.
