FEATURES
DESCRIPTION
The DLS-75 battery charger/power converter from IOTA Engineering converts nominal
120V A.C. voltage to 13.4V D.C. As a power supply, its tightly controlled regulation allows the user to operate any appropriate nominal D.C. load up to the converter’s rated
output current. As a battery charger, the DLS-75 will maintain the battery, delivering
its full-rated current when the battery capacity falls sufficiently low. The voltage is set
to deliver its maximum current for the necessary period of time that minimizes undue
stress to the battery caused by heating of its cells. This helps to ensure the longest
possible life of the battery. Over time, as the battery nears its full capacity, the converter
will float-charge the battery to prevent self-discharge of its cells.

BATTERY CHARGER/POWER CONVERTER
INSTALLATION OVERVIEW
OPTIONS
MODELS
DLS-75
DLS-75/IQ4 (with integrated IQ Smart Charger)
Disconnect the positive side of the battery before installation. Connect the positive
(red) and negative (black) terminal lugs to battery or load. Always use the proper
size wire based on the amperage of the converter and the battery. When connecting
to a battery, a breaker should be installed within 18p of the battery, connecting the
battery positive to the line side of the breaker, and the DLS to the load side. Connect
“Chassis Bonding Lug” on the DLS to vehicle chassis or other grounding source.
Plug the DLS A.C. input cord into a 120 volt 3-wire grounded source. See chart
for maximum current draw and required input voltages. For complete installation
guidelines, refer to the installation manual.
DUAL VOLTAGE JACK
The DLS-75 is equipped with a Dual Voltage Jack and Dual
Voltage Plug that allows manual switching from a long-term float
voltage of 13.6vdc to 14.2vdc. When the Dual Voltage Plug is inserted in the jack, the voltage increases to 14.2vdc for occasional
fast charging. When the plug is removed, the voltage drops to
13.6vdc to reduce battery water loss.
The Dual Voltage Jack also allows for easy installation of an
external IQ4 Smart Charger for automatic 3-stage charging
(optional). If the unit is equipped with an internal IQ4 smart
charger, two-step charging is not needed and the Dual Voltage
Jack is disabled. For details on 3-stage charging voltages, refer
to the IQ4 instruction manual.
WARRANTY
The DLS Series Battery Charger/Power Converter is warranted from defects in materials or workmanship for two years from date of retail purchase, and limits the remedies to repair or replacement. This warranty is valid only in the continental United
States and Canada. For complete warranty details, contact Customer Service or visit
