The T2 is a simultaneous 2 position InterActive® fast charger with 70 watt DC camera
power supply. It incorporates all of the Logic Series® circuits that are employed in
every Anton/Bauer® charger. The InterActive charge programming provides all
charge termination and protection routines for safe, reliable, chemistry independent
charging.
Like all Anton/Bauer chargers, everything is automatic. Once a battery is placed onto
the charger, it will automatically go into one of the Three Stage Charging modes.
The left side of the charger is dedicated to charging, while the right side operates
simultaneously as selected between charging or operating as a camera power supply.
FEATURES
- Two independent 70 Watt Power Supplies – one for charging or DC power, and one
exclusively for charging.
- Fast Charging. One hour with most batteries (approximately 2 hours with HyTRON™
series and 3 hours with Dionic™ batteries).
- Wide Range Input (100-240vac 50/60Hz).

Risk of Electrical Shock: Refer servicing to qualified service personnel.
TO PREVENT FIRE OR SHOCK HAZARD, DO NOT EXPOSE THIS
UNIT TO RAIN OR MOISTURE.
GROUNDING/EARTHING
IMPORTANT WARNING: THIS APPARATUS MUST BE EARTHED.
To ensure safe operation, the three pin plug supplied must be inserted only into a
standard three-pin power point which is effectively grounded through the normal
household wiring. Extension cords used with the equipment must be three-conductor
and be correctly wired to provide connection to earth ground. Improperly wired
extension cords are a dangerous electrical hazard.
The fact that the equipment operates satisfactorily does not imply that the power point is
properly grounded and that the installation is completely safe. If any doubt exists about
the correct grounding of the power point, consult a qualified electrician.
IMPORTANT: The wires in this mains lead are colored in accordance with the
following code:

As with all Anton/Bauer chargers, charging with T2 is fully automatic. Mount any Digital
Logic Series or Logic Series battery to the T2 and it will automatically determine the
appropriate charge routine and execute it.
Applications
The T2 will charge any Anton/Bauer Logic Series Gold Mount® battery including
model: ProPac® 14, Trimpac® 14, Digital ProPac 14, Digital Trimpac 14, HyTRON,
Dionic battery.
NOTE: Anton/Bauer recommends that each battery have a charge position, for
when the battery is not in use. A battery can remain on an Anton/Bauer
charger indefinitely.
The T2 incorporates the exclusive InterActive communication between battery and
charger, which allows the charger to identify any Anton/Bauer battery attached and
determine the precise charge routine for that battery under the prevailing conditions.
NOTE: Due to the specialized communications between the charger and the
battery, batteries without the Logic Series construction and
communication capability (manufactured by Anton/Bauer before 1989
as well as so-called “rebuilds”) can not be charged with this charger.
The InterActive communication of Logic Series batteries is the key which
allows the T2 to safely identify and address new style and chemistry
batteries as they are developed. Moreover, this communication ensures
that batteries contain the quality cells, workmanship and safety of
genuine Anton/Bauer products. If a non-Logic Series battery is placed
on the charger, the red and green LED indicators will flash alternately.
This indication means that the battery cannot communicate its identity
to the T2 and is not charging. After 45 seconds of flashing green and red
LED’s, the red LED will remain on, indicating a HOLD state.
WARNING: USE OF THIS CHARGER WITH ANY BATTERY NOT
MANUFACTURED BY ANTON/BAUER MAY RESULT IN
BATTERY DAMAGE AND CAUSE RISK OF FIRE OR
PERSONAL INJURY.
ANTON/BAUER ACCEPTS NO
RESPONSIBILITY FOR ANY INJURY OR DAMAGE
ASSOCIATED WITH THE USE OF BATTERIES NOT
MANUFACTURED (OR BATTERIES SERVICED OTHER
THAN) BY ANTON/BAUER. SUCH USE WILL VOID ANY
WARRANTY.

Three Stage Charging Methodology

Sht 7 of 12
In general, the T2 will deliver a three stage charge routine to each battery.
1. Stage One will deliver a high rate charge matched to the capabilities of the
battery (typically a one or two hour rate, depending on battery type). During this
stage, six separate cutoff methods are in operation, simultaneously, ensuring the
fastest, safest charge for that battery:
TCO - Temperature cutoff which stops the Stage one charge precisely when
a temperature indicative of full charge is reached;
Dt/dT - A microprocessor based algorithm which measures a rise in
temperature over a specific time, very accurately indicating full charge. This
method is also the recommended method for charging Ni-MH technology;
-ΔV - A method to determine the end of stage one charging by identifying a
characteristic “reverse slope” of a Ni-Cd cell. Since this characteristic can
be disguised by the age, temperature and the number of the cells in a battery,
it can never be employed alone;
CCO - This method requires the identification of the particular battery size
(capacity) and chemistry, an exclusive Anton/Bauer Logic Series feature.
The charger determines the maximum charge time for the particular battery
and uses this information to ensure that overcharge conditions are avoided.
FUL - This determination is made when a fully charged DIGITAL battery is
returned to a charger within specified parameters of time, temperature, and
battery voltage. The DIGITAL battery communicates its fully charged
condition and the charger confirms the parameters and immediately indicates a
fully charged condition, without additional verification.
TEMPERATURE COMPENSATED VCO – For HyTRON series of
batteries. Optimizes VCO cutoff to operate only within certain temperature
parameters.
In addition, a voltage limiting constant current Stage One routine address the critical
parameters of DIONIC batteries.
2. Stage Two charging is a BALANCING or “stabilizing” mode which calculates
each battery pack type to offset any imbalance of the battery’s cells, created by
unequal self discharge or any capacity mismatch of the individual cells in the
pack. This stage can vary in duration from zero to as much as 16 hours,
depending on the condition of the battery. The Stage Two charge for DIONIC
batteries reduces current automatically as the battery charges maintaining the
lithium ion cells at a safe voltage level. A battery will typically leave Stage Two
in 2-4 hours under average operating conditions.
3. Stage Three charging is the Anton/Bauer exclusive Lifesaver® maintenance
mode. This patented pulse routine keeps batteries fully charged, free from selfdischarge - indefinitely - without damaging heat associated with a so-called
“trickle charge”. The Stage Three programming for DIONIC monitors the self
discharge of the battery, providing charge only when the battery self discharges to
about 95% of its capacity.
4. NOTE: Batteries may be kept on a charger until ready for use. The Lifesaver
mode will keep them 100% charged.

Sht 8 of 12
The T2 has two sets of three LEDs (one red, two green). The green status LED
indicates: Steady green – line voltage is present with no power drawn through camera
output; Flashing green - line voltage is present, powering camera; Off – line voltage not
present, camera powered by battery, if there is a battery presently mounted on T2.
The red and green charge status LED’s indicate the charging status of the battery. The
following table identifies all of the LED indications and their meaning. Please note that
the right side charge position will not illuminate the red or green LEDs when power is
being drawn from the 4 pin XLR.
LED INDICATION
MEANING
Alternating
Red & Green
Indicates that the T2 is evaluating the battery and/or
communicating with a DIGITAL battery, loading battery
parameters and determining the appropriate charge routine. A
low voltage (<11V) battery will cause this indication to
continue until the battery reaches safe charging voltage.
Steady Red
Indicates that the battery is being held by the T2 to stabilize an
out-of-range temperature condition.
Or it can also indicate if a non-Anton/Bauer Logic Series battery
has been mounted on the charger. These batteries cannot identify
themselves to the T2 and will not be charged.
Flashing Red
Indicates that the battery is currently under Stage One charge.
Flashing Green
(slow rate)
Indicates that the battery is currently under Stage Two charge.
Flashing Green
(fast rate)
Indicates a fully charged DIGITAL battery is placed on the
charger and a FUL cutoff condition cannot be met. The charger
is VERIFYING that the battery is in a full charge condition.
Steady Green
Indicates that the battery is READY and in Stage Three Lifesaver
mode.

The T2 can operate cameras and camcorders using the four pin camera output
connector located on the back of the T2. To power the camera, attach one end of the
XLR4 accessory cable (available separately) to the T2. Attach the other end to the
“DC in” four pin XLR on the camera/camcorder. Move the switch located next to the
connector to the “CAMERA” position.
The T2 will remember the point at which it left its charge routine for the battery
positioned on the right side of the charger. The left side of the charger will continue
as a dedicated charging position, regardless of the selected function of the right side
of the T2. When the switch is returned to the “CHARGER” position, the batteries
will automatically continue charging where they left off.
During camera operation, with batteries on the PowerCharger®, the unit will indicate
a solid RED LED for the right battery position.
