QSSET, QSSETX INDUSTRIAL Battery Chargers
INTRODUCTION
A timed shut off charger designed for industrial batteries. These chargers bring the batteries to
the gassing threshold where an electronic timer is activated, after three hours of gassing, the
charger shuts off.
SOME APPLICATIONS
Forklifts, pallet trucks
IMPORTANT: DO NOT USE THIS CHARGER UNTIL YOU HAVE READ ALL THE
INSTRUCTIONS.
INITIAL INSTALLATION:
Before making AC connections, refer to the AC requirements labeled on the charger. If your
charger is not equipped with an AC plug (a 220 volt model) have a qualified electrician install
one.
! CAUTION: To reduce the risk of fire, use this charger only on circuits provided with
a maximum of 30 ampere branch circuit protection (circuit breaker or fuse),
in accordance with the National Electric Code, ANSI/NFPA 70, and all local
codes and ordinances.
GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS:
This battery charger must be grounded to reduce the risk of electric shock. If the charger is
equipped with a grounding type plug, it must be plugged into a nominal 115 volt, 60 Hertz
circuit. If the charger is supplied with no plug, have a qualified service person install one.
! WARNING: Improper connection of the equipment grounding conductor can result in a
risk of an electric shock. DO NOT USE THIS CHARGER ON A TWO
POLE UNGROUNDED OUTLET OR ATTEMPT TO BREAK OFF THE
GROUND PRONG FOR USE ON A RECEPTACLE OR EXTENSION
CORD NOT HAVING A GROUND.
The use of an extension cord with this charger should be avoided. The use of an improper
extension cord result in a risk of a fire or electric shock. If an extension cord must be used, make
sure it is in good condition. Use a three conductor cord no smaller than 12 AWG. And keep it as
short as possible. Locate all cords so that they will not be stepped on, tripped over, or otherwise
subjected to damage or stress.
Do not operate this charger if it shows any signs of physical damage.

PROPER CARE AND USE OF BATTERIES:
! CAUTION: Always wear protective eye shields and clothing when working with
batteries. Batteries contain acids which can cause bodily harm. Do not put
wrenches or other metal objects across the battery terminal or battery top.
Arcing or explosion of the battery can result. Do not wear jewelry when
working around batteries. Arcing can cause sever burns.
New batteries will not deliver their full performance until after several cycles.
The tops of the batteries and battery hold downs must be kept clean and dry at all times to
prevent excessive self discharge and flow of current between the battery post and frame.
Maintain the proper electrolyte level by adding water when necessary. Never allow the
electrolyte level to fall below the top of the battery plates. Electrolyte levels fall during
discharge and rise during charging. Therefore, to prevent the overflow of electrolyte when
charging, add water ONLY AFTER the batteries have been fully charged DO NOT
OVERFILL. Old batteries require more frequent additions of water than do new batteries.
Do not over discharge the batteries. Excessive discharge can cause polarity reversal of
individual cells resulting in complete battery failure.
Provide adequate ventilation for the batteries and charger. Do not obstruct the flow of cooling air
around the charger. Provide at least 1" of space around charger. Do not allow clothing, blankets
or other material to cover the charger.
! WARNING: Chargers can ignite flammable materials and vapors. Do not use near fuels,
grain, dust, solvents, or other flammable s.
! CAUTION: Before connecting the charger to the batteries, make sure the battery pack is of
the same voltage rating of the charger. If you are unsure, count the number of
cells on the battery pack and multiply by two. This figure should be the same
as the DC voltage rating of the charger. (see ratings label on charger).

When batteries are connected
in parallel, the battery amp hour
rating is additive, and the voltage
remains the same. Example:
Two 180 amp hour, 12 volt batteries
would equal 12 volts, and 360
amp hours capacity.
When batteries are connected in
series, the voltage is additive, and
the amp hour rating remains the
same. Example: Two 180 amp
hour, 12 volt batteries would equal
24 volts, and 180 amp hours of
capacity.

! WARNING: Make sure the DC output leads, clamps, or connector are all in good working
condition.
DO NOT USE THIS CHARGER IF:
The DC output clamps, or connector is loose, worn or does not make good contact; The leads are
cut or have exposed wires; The DC output leads or connector/clamps feel hot when used.
Using this charger with any of the above symptoms could result in a fire, property damage, or
personal injury. Have a qualified service person make the necessary repairs. Repairs should not
be made by people who are not qualified.
NORMAL OPERATION
1). Plug charger into battery pack. The BATTERY LED should light, indicating DC continuity.
2). Plug charger in AC power, and move power switch to ON position. The AC POWER LED
should light, and cooling fan should be heard.
!
WARNING: If the cooling fan does not come on, the charger should be powered down.
Operating the charger without the cooling fan will result in transformer and
or rectifier burnout. Have the charger serviced by a qualified service person.
3). Initially, the ammeter will read the maximum output of the charger. As the batteries become
charged, the ammeter will work it s way towards zero and the voltage will rise. When the
battery voltage reaches the gassing threshold, (2.3 volts per cell) a timer will activate, and
gas the batteries for three hours. (2.5 - 2.6 volts per cell, max) The charger will then shut
off, indicated by the END CYCLE LED, the ammeter reading zero, and the fan going off.
5). To discontinue charging, move switch to the OFF position. Remove clamps from battery or
unplug connector.
! WARNING: Do not disconnect the DC output clamps or unplug connector from the
batteries when the charger is on. The resulting arcing could cause the
batteries to explode.
TROUBLE SHOOTING:
! CAUTION: DO NOT DISASSEMBLE THE CHARGER. Incorrect assembly may result in
a risk of electric shock or fire. Contact factory.
! DANGER: To reduce the risk of electric shock, always disconnect both the AC power
supply cord and the output leads or connector before attempting any
maintenance cleaning.

1). BATTERY LED DOES NOT COME ON WHEN BATTERY CONNECTION IS
MADE
Check lead connections to clamps, make sure they are not broken, or corroded. The
battery voltage may be too low to light the LED and start the charger.
2). AC POWER LED WILL NOT COME ON WHEN POWER SWITCH IS ON
Check that you are plugged into a live circuit. Check AC cord, plug and receptacle for
damage. These chargers are fused internally. Check fuse card mounted on ammeter. If it is
blown, contact factory for a new one, and have a qualified service person install it.
3). FUSE ON CHARGER OR AC LINE BREAKER BLOWS
The charger may be shorted internally. Charging a battery with a lower voltage rating than
the charger will cause an overload, and damage to battery and charger.
4). NO POWER IS PRESENT ACROSS THE DC LEADS WHEN A VOLT METER IS
CONNECTED
Good. The charger will not turn on until the clamps are connected to the battery.
5). BATTERIES DON T RECEIVE FULL CHARGE
The battery you are charging may be too large for the charger, or if you have the charger
plugged into a long extension cord that is too small, a voltage drop will cause a decrease in
charger output, extending charge times.
6). THE AC POWER & BATTERY LED s COME ON, BUT THE AMMETER
DOES NOT MOVE.
The battery may be sulfated so much, internal resistance is too high for current to flow.
Sometimes leaving the charger ON will eventually break loose the sulfate and allow the
battery to accept the charge. If not, a battery specialist may be able to recover the battery.
7). CHARGER WON T SHUT OFF
A battery with one, or more shorted cells may not allow the voltage to climb high enough to
trip the timer. A battery in this condition should be replaced, since excessive gassing by the
shorted cells will cause a hazardous condition, and performance will be greatly reduced.
8). FAN DOES NOT OPERATE
Have a qualified service person replace the fan
