BID-Chip (Battery-IDentifikations-System).
Simple, secure operation and automatic storage of the essential battery data in the robbe BID system.
Simply plug the BID-Key into the charger and the charge process begins.

A vast array of different battery types is now available to the modeller, and the range is constantly growing larger; the problem is that each battery type requires its “own” charge process.

The usual solutions to this are familiar to all of us: either a large number of individual battery chargers, or a universal battery charger - a popular option.

Of course, these universal chargers must be set correctly to suit each battery type, and it is necessary to define the cell count, charge current, discharge current etc. manually.
It is very easy to lose track of things, forget how to change the settings, or - in the worst case - charge a battery using the wrong settings.

Which of us hasn't made this mistake: you need to top up some battery or other in a hurry, you switch the system on with the wrong settings - and in a moment your valuable battery is damaged, or perhaps even ruined.

The revolutionary BID system from robbe now offers an ingenious solution to this problem.

BID system stands for B
attery I
Dentification System
.
A small, lightweight BID chip is assigned to each battery; the chip stores all the relevant data for charging and discharging that pack perfectly.

When the battery is to be charged or discharged, the BID chip and the battery are connected using a BID battery charger, and the BID system informs the charger of the required parameters.
The special advantages of the BID system are as follows: no tiresome searching through menus for the set-up parameters, maximum protection from mis-handling, and storing of the relevant battery data in the BID chip.
The BID chip is so small and light (0.5 g) that it can be attached to the battery itself, or fitted inside the heat-shrink sleeve.
Sockets at both ends ensure simple handling, and save the weight of extra cables.

Naturally, batteries without the BID chip can also be charged by all BID chargers.

BID charge parameters:
  • Battery type (NC, NiMH, Lithium, Lead-acid)
  • Cell count
  • Battery capacity
  • Charge current
  • Discharge current
  • Date (e.g. first use)

BID memory:
Currently charged-in capacity
Currently discharged capacity
Maximum charged capacity
Maximum discharged capacity
Number of charge cycles
Since the discovery of Lithium batteries, the growth of the battery types increases daily. Yesterday 3.6 volt lithium-ion, today 3.7 volt lithium-ion and lithium-ion polymer batteries, and what's more, 3.3 volt Lithium ferrum cells and 3.6 volt lithium-phosphorous cells are now in the pipeline. Who can comprehend them all, with so many cell types and cut=off voltages. One quickly loses touch with how the settings need to be made or in the worst case make the incorrect setting. We know of one solution, either have many varieties of single charger types or, as widely used in modelling, a universal charger. These also surely have disadvantages Who hasnt had it happen to them? Wanting to make a quick charge and entered the wrong settings- and then damaging or destroying the battery. The revolutionary BID-System from robbe offers a brilliant solution for this problem. BID-System stands for Battery-IDentifikations-System. Each battery is fitted with a small, light BID-Chip, which stores all the relevant Data to charge and discharge the battery. The BID-Chip is connected to a BID-Charger to charge and discharge the battery.

Press the Start button, and the charge or discharge process begins.
The special advantages of the BID system are as follows:
No tiresome searching through menus for the set-up parameters
Maximum protection from mis-handling
Storing of the relevant battery data in the BID chip.

The BID chip is so small and light (0.5 g) that it can be attached to the battery itself, or fitted inside the heat-shrink sleeve.
A BID chip with a 300 mm lead is supplied with the charger.
In addition to the BID system, high charge current and broad cell range the charging station offers the following functions:

Functions:
Charge, Discharge, Discharge - Charge

Adjustment of:
  • Charge current
  • discharge current
  • cell count
  • battery capacity
  • battery type
  • automatic or manual charge
  • beeper on / off.

Display of:
  • Input voltage
  • battery voltage
  • charged-in capacity
  • discharged capacity
  • charge time
  • discharge time
  • peak voltage
  • average voltage (discharge cycle).
  • When the process is started, a "working display" automatically appears, which at a glance informs the user of the data relating to the current charge process.

The working display shows:
  • Charge current
  • charge voltage
  • capacity
  • charge time
  • status
  • Optional manual and automatic modes are available; in automatic mode the charge and discharge currents and the final discharge voltage are calculated automatically and set to the optimum value.

NC and NiMH batteries
Charging and discharging of 1 - 25 NC or NiMH cells at a charge current of 0.1 - 5 Amps and discharge current of 0.1 - 5 Amps.
An automatic digital Delta Peak charge termination (cut-off) circuit switches off the charge process at the correct time; the circuit is designed to suit NC and NiMH batteries.

Lead-acid batteries
Charging of lead-acid batteries with 1 - 6 cells (2 - 12 Volts nominal voltage) at a maximum charge current of 5 Amps.
An automatic charge termination circuit switches off the charge process at a final charge voltage of 2.35 Volts per cell.

Li-Io and Li-Poly cells
Charging of Lithium batteries consisting of 1 .. No tiresome searching through menus for the set-up parameter, maximum protection from mis-handling and storing of the relevant battery data in the BID chip. The BID chip is so small and light (0.5 g) that it can be attached directly to the battery, or fitted under the heat-shrink sleeve. Double sided plugs make for easy use and save weight. An alternative to the BID-Chip is also the BID-Key. The function is the same as with the BID-Chip, however the BID-Key's handy shape makes plugging into the charger easier. The BID-Key may be placed inside the model or secured to the battery with a length of nylon thread. Naturally, all BID chargers can charge batteries not fitted with a BID-Chip/Key. Following charger settings are stored in the BID- Chip/Key: • Battery type (NC, NiMH, LiIo,LiPo, LiFe, Lead) • Cell count • Battery capacity • Charge current • Discharge current • Date (e.g. first operation) • Delta Peak cut-off voltage • Cut-off temperature the adjustable charge parameters vary according to charger type, however are compatible between themselves. Following data will be stored during each charge cycle in the BID-Chip/Key gespeichert: • Latest charged capacity • Latest discharge capacity • Maximum charge capacity • Maximum discharge capacity • Number of charge cycles
