Q: How do I change my ProTech-i Series charger to GEL cell mode? A: Please double check that you have a GEL cell battery(s). There is a misconception that AGM is GEL. This is not the case. AGM (Absorbed Glass Mat) battery(s) require a different charge profile than GEL Batteries. If you have confirmed that you have GEL (Gelled Electrolyte Lead-acid) battery(s), simply follow the procedure outlined on page 6 of this manual. Q: Does my ProTech-i Series really need 6 inches of all around clearance for ventilation? A: We recommend this for cooling, more clearance is better. Q: I think my ProTech-i Series charger is too hot. What should I do? A: The charger will get to the point where it can be touched, but you would not want to carry it across a room. This is normal. Note: the charger is thermally protected. Q: How do I change the AC input on my ProTech i charger from 120v to 240v? A: The NEW ProTech-i charger is equipped with the most advanced charging technology and will automatically adjust for the correct voltage. Tr o u b l e S h o o t i n g / P e r i o d i c M a i n t e n a n c e Cautions, Warnings & Safety Instructions 3 14 Trouble Shooting Important Safety Instructions Continued Note: When working with tools near electricity serious electrical shock can occur resulting in injury. 1) Turn off all power to the charger and disconnect all the DC cables at the batteries making sure that no cables are in contact with equipment, other wiring, or one another. 2) Please note switch positions before changing settings. Set the user programmable battery type selector switch to the Flooded (Lead-acid) position shown on page 6 (Note switch position to reset after troubleshooting is complete). 3) Set the user programmable absorption type selector switch to one hour as shown on page 6. (Note: Please make sure to make note of your ProTech i Charger's programmed settings for battery type and absorption time so you can reprogram your charger after troubleshooting is completed). 4) Apply AC power. The charger will first be in the Fast Charge Mode, followed by the Absorption / Conditioning Mode. Note: Because the batteries will not be connected during this test the transition from Fast Charge to absorption may be so quick you will not see the change in modes. This is normal and acceptable. Once you have confirmed your ProTech-i Series Charger is in the absorption mode use a digital volt meter (DVM) to check the output voltage of the charger. It should read between 14.6 and 14.7 Volts DC (for the Factory Flooded (Lead-acid) Setting). 7. WARNING – RISK OF EXPLOSIVE GASES. a) WORKING IN THE VICINITY OF A LEAD-ACID BATTERY IS DANGEROUS. BATTERIES GENERATE EXPLOSIVE GASES DURING NORMAL BATTERY OPERATION. FOR THIS REASON, IT IS OF UTMOST IMPORTANCE THAT EACH TIME BEFORE USING YOUR CHARGER, YOU READ THIS MANUAL AND FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS EXACTLY. b) To reduce risk of battery explosion, follow these instructions and those published by battery manufacturer and manufacturer of any equipment you intend to use in vicinity of a battery(s).

Please note you can connect all three positive DC output posts together to form a single DC output on your ProTech-i Series Charger. All installations should be made in compliance with ABYC E-11 specifications for AC and DC electrical systems on boats and specifications for A-31 Battery Chargers and inverters. Installation Selecting a Charging Profile & Understanding Battery Types 7 10 DC Installation Continued Setup and Operation Continued General recommendation for the Absorption Timer Switch is as follows: Single Group 24 or Group 27… 2 Hours Two Group 24, 27 or Single Group 31… 3 Hours Single 4D or 8D... 4 Hours Multiple 4 or 8Ds or Multiple… 4 Hours ***ACTUAL SWITCH SETTINGS ARE SHOWN ON PAGE 6*** Shown Above: ProTech-i Plus model. The circuit board is clearly marked to identify the polarity of each DC output connection. Note: For your safety the charger is equipped with an internal temperature sensor that will shutdown the charger in the event of thermal overload. Note: Your ProTech-i charger is equipped with a fan, the fan will only run when needed. The fan is temperature controlled and will only turn on when cooling is necessary. 4) Battery cables, connections and installation must comply with ABYC E-11 and A-31 standards. To avoid risk of injury, fire or an explosion, ProMariner requires that when making a wire connection to EACH BATTERY(s) Positive (+) Post, install the positive cable with an over current protection fuse within 7 inches of connection to the battery or battery connection point. The fuse rating should be at least 10 amps higher than the rated full output of the charger. See ABYC E-11 for specific requirements. Over current protection within 7 inches of the charger’s negative (-) DC output post is not required as the ProTech-i is self limiting and can not exceed its rated current output. The internal fuses protect the unit against reverse polarity. Selecting a Charging Profile and Understanding Battery Types There are three primary types of batteries; Flooded (Lead-acid), AGM (Absorbed Glass Mat) and GEL Cell (Gelled Electrolyte Lead-acid). Traditionally, the most common type of batteries used are Flooded (Lead-acid batteries). Almost all GEL Cell Batteries will state that they are GEL Cell on the battery case or labels. 12 Volt Charging Profile 24 Volt Charging Profile Battery Information Flooded (Lead-acid) 14.7 Absorption, 13.5 Float 29.4 Absorption, 27.0 Float Electrolyte (with or without removable caps) AGM (Absorbed Glass Mat) 14.4 Absorption, 13.3 Float 28.8 Absorption, 26.6 Float Sealed 14.1 Absorption, GEL (Gelled Electrolyte Lead-acid) 13.8 Float 28.2 Absorption, 27.6 Float Sealed Battery Type Typical 12 Volt DC Common Ground Installation Wiring For 24 Volt installations, always make sure you have a 24 Volt Common Ground ProTechi Series Charger, and that your batteries are configured in series as a 24 Volt battery bank or banks. Each 24 Volt bank will require a 24 Volt positive connection. Not sure you know what voltage system you have on board your boat? Contact your local certified ABYC marine electrical technician. Installation Note: Preventing a short circuit of "live" DC Wires can be accomplished with the following proper steps: 1) Always connect the positive (+) DC output cables to the charger first. 2) Connect the remaining end of the DC cables to the required Protective fuse or DC breaker 4 to 7 inches from the battery positive (+) post with the fuse out or the DC breaker in the off position. 3) Once all of the above wiring connections are completed and inspected, proceed with the protective fuses out of the holder and or the protective breakers in the off position, make your final connections from the protective devices to the Positive (+) posts of the associated Battery (s). Proceed to make the DC Ground Connection from the Charger to the DC common Ground Buss followed by the Negative (-) Connections from the Battery (s) to the DC common Ground Buss. When all wiring is completed install the protective fuses and or turn on the protective DC breaker(s). See illustrations on page 11. NOTE: AGM (Absorbed Glass Mat) batteries are not GEL (Gelled Electrolyte Lead-acid) batteries. AGM batteries are charged with a completely different charge profile when compared to GEL batteries. ***If you are unsure as to what kind of battery you have, we recommend that you contact the manufacturer of the battery. ProMariner battery maintainers are designed to keep batteries charged during the off season to maintain the life of your battery. ProMariner maintainers keep a battery voltage at a safe level so that a battery does not self discharge.
