  • LTZ1000 Charger Board


13.2V, 75mA linear charger based on Linear Technology LTC4079. Features constant voltage, constant current, current sensing and reverse current protection. Charging can be terminated by either C/10 or an adjustable timer. A Maxim MAX8212, monitor the battery voltage and disconnect the load when the voltage is too low. Useful for LTZ1000 circuit when an under-voltage condition can destroy the chip.

The charger is designed for NiCd or Pb, 1A/h - 2.2A/h rechargeable battery, and provides 75mA to the load; when the battery is charged, the circuit switches to C/50. If the battery voltage falls below 10V, a voltage monitor disconnects the load, avoiding overheating LTZ1000 due to the increased temperature set-point.
Everyone can order the board from us assembled and tested; use our contact form.
