Battery charge control unit BCU-300
Our clients often encounter significant issues when operating refrigerated trailers:
1. Rapid refrigeration unit battery discharge: Increased security demands for semi-trailer protection (alarms, additional sensors, trackers, electronic door locks, etc.) lead to higher power consumption of the refrigeration unit's battery.
2. Untimely activation of the unit: Delays in starting the unit can result in temperature fluctuations inside the refrigerated trailer, potentially leading to damage or product loss.
3. Frequent battery replacement: Regular battery replacements become a costly and inefficient procedure, accompanied by downtime for the refrigerated trailer.
4. Driver dissatisfaction: Dissatisfied drivers can reduce the productivy and safety of your transportation logistics, directly impacting the efficiency of the entire supply chain.
5. Increased fuel consumption: Improper functioning of refrigerated trailers can cause excessive fuel consumption, raising operational costs and reducing the profitability of your business.
6. Disrupted cargo delivery schedules: Issues with refrigeration unit operation can lead to disruptions in cargo delivery schedules, causing client dissatisfaction and risking contract losses."
Our solution, BCU-300:
Installed in the refrigerated trailer's utility compartment, the BCU-300 unit operates with a 24V power supply from the truck's factory EBS socket. Upon connecting the semi-trailer to the truck, the unit immediately delivers the optimal voltage and charging current directly to the 12V aggregate battery.
1. Constant Analysis and Selection of Power Source: The BCU-300 continuously monitors available power sources, such as the truck or a solar panel*, and selects the optimal source depending on the conditions.
2. Optimal Voltage and Battery Charging Current: The BCU-300 regulates the voltage and charging current for both acid and gel batteries, ensuring efficient charging.
3. Monitoring Truck Battery Discharge: The device also keeps track of the truck's battery condition to prevent deep discharge, which could adversely affect the operation of the refrigerated unit and batteries.
Example 1: After installing our unit and conducting test trials, cases of battery discharge were reduced by 80%. Downtime decreased by 25%. The company now plans to purchase BCU-300 units for its entire fleet.
Example 2: Following a demonstration of the BCU-300's performance at our showroom, the company acquired units for its entire vehicle fleet without further testing. Refrigerated trailer downtime was reduced by 20%. The technical director is satisfied with the results, and there have been no complaints from the drivers.
Example 3: Downtime decreased by 30%. Battery purchase expenses were reduced by a factor of 3. Fuel consumption for battery charging decreased by 80%."
