Smart Battery Charger
The Smart Battery Charger is an integral part of BEBS.
The system incorporates a dedicated battery charging system which is located at the BEBS on the bell. The charger is housed inside a stainless 1-atmosphere pod to protect the internal electronics. A 220-240v AC mains power supply from the surface is required to power-up the charging system, and it is recommended that this power supply is connected at all times.
Battery charge level is continuously monitored, and when the charge level falls to below 95%, the charger is enabled to top-up the charge. When the batteries are used normally (i.e. in standby fully charged mode), the top-up re-charge process will typically take place once a week.
