IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
I. PERSONAL PRECAUTIONS:
1. Someone should be within range of your voice or close enough to come to your aid when you work near
a lead-acid battery.
2. Have plenty of fresh water and soap nearby in case battery acid contacts skin, clothing, or eyes.
3. Wear complete eye and clothing protection. Avoid touching your eyes while working near a battery.
4. If battery acid contacts skin or clothing, wash immediately with soap and water. If battery acid enters
the eye, immediately flood eye with cold running water for at least 10 minutes and get medical attention
immediately.
5. NEVER smoke or allow a spark or flame in the vicinity of the battery or engine.
6. Be extra cautious to reduce the risk of dropping a metal tool onto the battery. It might spark or short-circuit
the battery or other electrical part and cause a fire or an explosion.
7. Remove personal metal items such as rings, bracelets, necklaces, and watches when working with a
lead-acid battery. A lead-acid battery, when shorted, can produce a current sufficient to weld a ring or the
like metal causing a severe burn.
8. Use the battery charger for charging gel-cell, AGM and flooded lead-acid batteries only. Do not use the
charger for charging dry-cell batteries that are commonly used with home applications. These batteries
may burst and cause injury to persons and damage to property.
9. WARNING – RISK OF EXPLOSIVE GASES: Working in the vicinity of a lead-acid battery is dangerous.
Batteries generate explosive gases during normal battery operation.
II. CHARGER PRECAUTIONS:
1. NEVER charge a frozen battery.
2. Make sure the cord is located so that it will not be stepped on, tripped over, or otherwise subjected to
damage or stress.
3. Do not operate the charger with a damaged cord or plug; replace them immediately.
4. Do not operate the charger if it has received a sharp blow, been dropped, or otherwise damaged.
5. Do not disassemble the charger. Incorrect reassembly may result in a risk of electric shock and fire.
6. To reduce the risk of electric shock, disconnect the charger from the AC source before attempting any
maintenance or cleaning.
7. LOCATION OF CHARGER: The charger should be mounted on a wall, vehicle floor, ventilated compartment or other suitable surface as close to the batteries to be charged as possible. Do not block the charger’s fan or air intakes. Do not mount the charger directly over the batteries as fumes may cause excessive corrosion. The area should be well ventilated and free from excessive moisture, exhaust manifolds,
and battery fumes. For maximum performance, the charger should not be located in an area of extreme
high temperature. The charger is not waterproof. Do not mount the charger where there is a possibility of
water entering the unit. Evidence of water entry into the charger will void the warranty.
8. CAUTION: Do not attempt to increase battery bank capacity by splitting the output of one of the banks
with a diode-type battery isolator. The diode isolator lowers the charger voltage and results in undercharging the batteries connected to it. If additional capacity is required it is preferable to add another
isolated or parallel battery.
III. GROUND AND AC POWER CORD CONNECTION:
1. The charger should be grounded via the AC power connection to reduce the risk of electrical shock.
2. The charger must be plugged into or wired to an outlet that is an over-current protected 3 prong outlet.
Alternatively, it may be routed through a separate dedicated fuse or circuit breaker on an AC distribution
panel with proper earth/safety ground. All wiring shall comply with UL recommendations, NEC or NFPA
standards and local ordinances. Never alter the AC cord or plug if provided. Any modification of the cord
must only be done by a qualified electrician. Improper cord/outlet connection may result in a risk of electrical shock.
3. Observe color coding of the AC wiring as follows:
Black………....................... AC Hot or LINE (fused)
White…………................... AC Neutral
Green…….................…….. AC Ground (safety/earth)
4. CAUTION: (230 VAC applications only): If AC input is provide from a source consisting of two HOT or
LINE leads (phase-to-phase 230 VAC input voltage); an external fuse or circuit breaker must be used to
protect both hot leads.

INTRODUCTION
The Auto Charge 1200 Remote is a compact, completely automatic, single channel battery charger
designed for vehicles with a single battery system. The charger is ruggedized to withstand the shock
and vibration encountered by vehicle mounted equipment.
FEATURES
I. AUTO CHARGE 1200 REMOTE BATTERY CHARGER
•
•
•
•
•
Electronic remote sensing of true battery voltage, eliminates the need for sensing wires
Automatic current limiting
Remote Battery charge/condition indicator display
LED status indicators
NEW! Battery Selector Switch (Lead-Acid/AGM)
II. CHARGE CONTROLS & ELECTRONIC REMOTE SENSING
The Auto Charge 1200 Remote contains a precision voltage controller to maintain the battery’s charge.
Automatic electronic remote sensing measures the true battery voltage, eliminating the need for the
additional sense wires. The output current of any charger is inherently a series of pulses whose
frequency is determined by the power line frequency. Therefore, there are brief intervals during which
no charging current flows. Since there is no charging current there is also no voltage drop between
the charger and the battery. The Auto Charge 1200 Remote thus measures and stores the true
battery voltage. This battery voltage is compared to a reference voltage, any error detected is then
used to control the charger output at the desired level. There is no “trickle charge” and therefore no
danger of overcharging and water boil-off.
III. AUTOMATIC CURRENT LIMITING
When batteries are severely discharged, some battery chargers can be overloaded due to the high
charging current required. The Auto Charge 1200 contains an automatic current limit. This circuit
limits the output current to the rated 40 amperes when charging a deeply discharged battery or if the
starter cranks the engine while charging. The current limiter thus eliminates the need for an ignition
interlock circuit.
IV. LED STATUS INDICATORS
1. BATTERY CONNECTED: Indicates that a battery of proper polarity is connected to the charger
output terminals
2. FAN ON: Indicates that the fan is operating. Fan operates whenever output exceeds 10 amperes.
Fan turns off when output current decreases below 5 amperes
3. POWER: Indicates that AC voltage is present

IV. REMOTE BATTERY CHARGE CONDITION INDICATOR
This remote indicator shows the charge condition of each battery in 10 levels from “LOW CHARGE”
to “FULLY CHARGED”. This device indicates a defective battery when a bar graph does not rise
to the “FULLY CHARGED” level after an extended period of charging.
NOTE: If a battery is being charged with an external load of 1.5 to 4 amperes across it’s terminals,
the bar graph may move down 1 or 2 levels. This does not indicate a defective battery.
To avoid this, connect all external loads to the Battery Saver terminals.
Loads connected to the Battery Saver will be powered either from the Battery Saver power supply
when the A.C. power is “ON”, or they will be connected to battery #1 when the A.C. power is “OFF”.
VI. BATTERY SELECTOR SWITCH
Used to select between Lead-Acid or AGM batteries. The selector switch is factory set to Lead-Acid.
WIRING
I. BATTERY CHARGER WIRING INSTRUCTIONS
1. Refer to Installation Wiring Diagram I. and II.
2. Refer to Wiring Specifications to determine the recommended wire size and maximum lengths.
Using a smaller gauge may cause overheating of the terminal. Additional information is available
upon request if longer, larger wiring is required.
3. Make sure the position of the Battery Selector Switch matches the battery type. The switch is
factory to Lead-Acid. Switch to AGM when using AGM style batteries. Refer to Wiring Diagram
III.
4. Double check all wiring before applying AC power to input terminal.
5. Apply AC power (shoreline power) to input terminal and observe that the charger is operating.
6. Verify that the battery voltage appears at the charger output terminals. A minimum of 6 volts is
required to start the charger
