GeneralInformation
2A)
IntroductionandCheckout
The Vanner SP00155 Battery Charger is a high performance three-stage
battery charger that has the ability to precisely charge 24VDC battery banks.
The Charger incorporates advanced battery charging technology, correctly
charging batteries automatically at rated ampere output rather than tapering off
like some other battery chargers.
The Charger's unique three-stage charging design provides precise battery
charging automatically. When plugged in, the Chargers enters BULK Stage and
will charge at full ampere outputs for at least 20 minutes, or until the battery
cells equalize at 28.6 VDC. The charger then automatically switches to ABSORPTION stage, which maintains 28.6 VDC until the battery is fully
charged. The final FLOAT Stage will stabilize battery voltage at 26.6 VDC until
the charger is unplugged or the charger's current limit has been reached. This
three-stage design keeps batteries in top condition and minimizes battery
failure, resulting in maximum battery life.

NOTE
Charger should not
be installed in same
compartment as
batteries.

SelectionofBatteryChargerLocation
• Charger should be located close to battery (but not in the same compartment) for optimum performance (within 3ft.)
• Charger should be protected from weather. Install charger in compartments
that provide protection from direct water spray, dirt, or toxic vapor.
• Mounting compartment should be well-ventilated and allow adequate air
circulation for charger cooling (2" clearance around entire charger
recommended).
• Do not store flammable items near charger.

ChargerMounting
• Install Charger in horizontal position, (mounting brackets are attatched to
the unit). This unit requires airflow under chassis for proper cooling.
WARNING
Safety goggles
should be worn
when working with
or near batteries.
3C)
RoutingandConnectingBatteryChargerDCOutputCables
This Charger is designed for 24 VDC applications only. If connected to nonspecified voltages, damage will result.
1.
Connect the Charger's RED cable to the battery positive (+) terminal and
the BLACK cable to the battery negative (-) terminal.
WARNING
2.
Battery connections
must pass a
minimum of 50
amps.
Battery cable connections must be clean and secure to minimize electrical
resistance for optimum performance.
3.
Route and secure charger DC cables away from Hot, Sharp, or Hard
surfaces and components.
4.
Ground the charger case properly. The unit is not grounded through the
negative DC cable.

BatteryChargerOperatingProcedure
4A)
4B)
ChargerSetup
1.
The GREEN light should be blinking whenever the 120 VAC power is not
plugged in and the battery is connected to the Battery Charger.
2.
To start the charger, plug the AC line cord into a 15 Amp 120 Volt 60Hz
power source.
3.
The Charger will remain on until unplugged from the power source.
To start the charger, plug the AC line cord into a 15 Amp 120Volt 60Hz
power source.
ChargingStages
1.
When plugged in to a 120VAC shore power the charger automatically goes
into BULK mode (if the batteries require it) and the Amber LED lights up.
The Charger stays in BULK mode, which will maintain 28.6 VDC until
the charging current drops below 75% of full rated load.
2.
When the charging current drops below 75% of the full rated load of the
charger, the charger will switch to the ABSORPTION stage for 20 minutes
by stabilizing the battery voltage at 28.6 VDC.
3.
After the ABSORPTION stage the charger enters the final or FLOAT
stage. The Amber BULK LED will turn Off and the Green FLOAT LED
will turn On. The charger will hold the battery voltage at 28.6 VDC until
the charger is unplugged or the battery charger current limit of 41 Amps is
reached through DC loads such as accessories, lights, etc. which will then
start the BULK stage again.

DESCRIPTION
The Charger is Off due to over temperature. Shutdown may be caused by high
ambient temperature or restricted
cooling air flow to charger. Shut down
sensor will auto reset when the unit has
cooled.
ACTION
DESCRIPTION
Solid Yellow
Charger is On. Battery is low and being
charged at full current output. Current
output will remain at a constant level
until battery voltage reaches bulk voltage
setpoint. Then, charger remains in
Absorption stage (constant voltagereducing current) for a timed period
before reducing to float stage.
LIGHT
DESCRIPTION
ACTION
Solid Green
Charger is On. Battery is close to full
charge. Charger output voltage is
reduced to a preset maintenance level.
Blinking Green
Charger is Off. Either the AC or DC is
disconnected from the charger. Usually
the AC input power is off. Sometimes
this condition will occur when the
charger has good 120 VAC input but the
frequency is not 60Hz.
