Supply connection to the unit should be made using only the standard lead supplied with this equipment. 1.4 Protect the power cord from being walked on or pinched, particularly at plugs. Unplug this apparatus during lightning storms or when unused for long periods of time. 1.5 Ensure that the ventilation slots are not obstructed when in use, e.g. do not site the charger on a carpet, and ensure that nothing covers the charger when it is in use. 1.6 WARNING: Indoor use only. To reduce the risk of fire or electric shock, do not expose this apparatus to rain or moisture. 1.7 Although the charger is short circuit protected, extreme care should always be taken not to short circuit the battery itself. Rechargeable batteries can deliver power at a very high rate, and short circuiting even a partially charged battery could result in a fire or personal injury. 1.8 WARNING: This appliance must be earthed. 2 1.9 Users who are not qualified electronics technicians must not attempt to disassemble the charger. There are no user-serviceable parts inside, and incorrect re-assembly may result in a safety hazard. 1.10 Do not use the apparatus if it has been damaged in any way, such as the supply cord or plug is damaged, liquid has been spilled, the apparatus has been exposed to rain or moisture, does not operate normally, or has been dropped. In this event you should seek advice from your nearest PAG Dealer, or direct from PAG Ltd., London, by telephoning +44 (0)20 8543 3131. SECTION 2 SPECIFICATION 2.1 Model No. 9708 2.2 PAGlink Cube Charger Features: • Four fast-charging positions. • Intelligent Parallel Charging (iPC). • Bright, informative Liquid Crystal Display. • Lightweight, travel-friendly design with retractable handle. 2.3 Range of Batteries Charged: Designed specifically for parallel charging the following PAGlink batteries, from any state of charge, individually or linked: Model 9303 PAGlink PL96e Model 9304 PAGlink PL96T Suitable for parallel charging the following V-Mount Li-Ion batteries: Model 9310V PAG L95e and L96e Model 9305V PAG L96T Sony Suitable for sequentially charging the following V-Mount Li-Ion batteries: Model 9360 PAG L95 Model 9302V PAG L110 Suitable for sequentially charging the following V-Mount Ni-MH batteries: Model 9316V PAG ZL-150 Model 9317V PAG ZL-125 Model 9315V PAG ZL-50 Sony 3 2.4 Battery Connections: 4 x V-Mount compatible connectors. 2.5 Main Charge Program: • Li-Ion Intelligent Parallel Charging program. • Maximum output 6A at 16.8V (100W approx.). 2.6 PAGlink Charging: The PAGlink system allows up to eight batteries to be linked in one stack for charging. However, PAG recommends that no more than four linked batteries are connected to each charging position of the PAGlink Cube, allowing up to 16 batteries to be charged simultaneously; this is to ensure that the charger’s V-Mount connectors are not mechanically overloaded. Batteries can be in any state of charge. The most-discharged batteries will be given a higher charge priority. Fully charged batteries stop accepting charge automatically and independently of other batteries. 2.7 Recovery Charge Program: This special program will automatically recover a Li-Ion battery where the output has been shut down. Additionally, the program detects batteries having a very low voltage, and initiates a special low charge current. The program will operate until the voltage has risen sufficiently for batteries to safely accept the normal charge current. 2.8 Self Test Program: The micro-processor constantly monitors the battery under charge or process as well as the operation of the charger’s own functions which will be shut down to a safe condition should any of the tests fail. 2.9 Mains Input: 90V to 265V AC. Frequency 50-60 Hz. EN6100-3-2 Power factor corrected. Maximum consumption 140W. 2.10 Output Protection: The charger is protected against short circuit and excess battery voltage. 2.11 AC Mains Failure Protection: Should mains failure occur during a charging program, or whilst the charger is connected, it will shut down to a safe condition. 2.12 User Interface: The charge status of each PAGlink battery is indicated by its own display. The different stages of the charging process are indicated for each channel on the charger’s LCD screen. The charger is fully automatic in operation and no user controls are provided. 4 2.13 Safety: Designed to comply with electrical safety standard BS EN 60065 and UL6500. NOTE: U.K. mains leads are fitted with a 1" fuse to BS1362 rated 5A as standard. 2.14 European Union Directives: Complies with the following EU Directives: • EMC Directive 89/336/EU. • Low Voltage Directive 73/23/EU. 2.15 Operating Temperature Range: 0ºC to +40ºC (+32ºF to +104ºF). 2.16 Overall Dimensions: 157mm high x 157mm wide x 157mm deep. (6.2" x 6.2" x 6.2" approximately). 2.17 Weight: 1.19kg 2.18 Typical Battery Charging Times: Charge times will vary depending on the condition and state-of-charge of the batteries. Typically, eight fully-discharged PAGlink batteries (2 linked on each charging position) will be fully-charged in approximately ten hours. These times are approximate only, and assume batteries are fully discharged. Charging times will be less if batteries are already partially charged. 5 SECTION 3 INSTALLATION 3.1 PAGlink Cube Chargers are fitted with a mains input socket conforming to CEE22 (IEC socket). Mains supply connection to the charger should be made using only the standard lead supplied with this equipment. 3.2 The charger has been designed for use on AC mains supplies worldwide, and automatically accept supplies in the range 90V to 265V. Mains supply frequency must be in the range 50-60 Hz. NOTE: the charger MUST NOT be operated from a vehicle 12V battery using the PAG Vehicle Battery-Power Converter, Model No. 9774. 3.3 PAG TECHNICAL SALES AND INFORMATION DESK: For further information, contact PAG Technical Sales and Information Desk +44 (0)20 8543 3131 or your nearest PAG Authorised Service Centre. Alternatively, visit the PAG Web Site at www.paguk.com. SECTION 4 OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS 4.1 IMPORTANT: Note section 4.17 Supply Failure. PAGlink Cube Chargers may be disconnected from the supply at any time in complete safety and without damage to the charger or any batteries connected. 4.2 Connect the charger to a suitable supply using the standard lead. The red LCD screen will illuminate. 4.3 On power-up, the charger will automatically run a self test program. 4.4 With no batteries connected, the display will indicate ‘ABST’ on all four channels. 4.5 When batteries are connected, charging will automatically commence and the display will indicate ‘CHRG’ on the appropriate channels. 4.6 Li-Ion batteries are charged simultaneously, using PAG’s Intelligent Parallel Charging program. Nickel-Metal Hydride batteries are charged sequentially. 6 4.7 The PAGlink system allows up to eight batteries to be linked in one stack for charging. However, PAG recommends that no more than four linked batteries are connected to each charging position of the PAGlink Cube, allowing up to 16 batteries to be charged simultaneously; this is to ensure that the charger’s V-Mount connectors are not mechanically overloaded. Batteries can be in any state of charge. The most-discharged batteries will be given a higher charge priority. Fully charged batteries stop accepting charge automatically and independently of other batteries. 4.8 The charger display will indicate ‘DONE’ when all the batteries connected to that channel have received as much charge as they can safely accept. 4.9 As Li-Ion batteries near the end of charge, the charge current is reduced. This is perfectly normal for the ‘constant voltage’ phase of the charge cycle. 4.10 Batteries may be removed, and others connected at any time, without affecting the operation of the charger. 4.11 The charger will continue to monitor the status of all charging channels. It will not attempt to charge batteries which the charger indicates are ‘DONE’ or faulty (indicated as ‘FAIL’). If a battery is now disconnected the display will indicate ‘ABST’. If a new battery is connected to the free channel, the charging sequence will be initiated automatically. The order in which batteries are connected is therefore immaterial; the charger will ensure that all batteries are charged in as short a time as possible. 4.12 The charger will check daily to see if batteries have fallen below 90% charged, and then add extra charge. If a battery that is below 90% charged is added, the charger will address the battery immediately. 4.13 If the charger detects a faulty battery while the charging program is running, the display will show ‘FAIL’. This could be caused by one of several conditions, such as a very old or damaged battery, a short circuit battery, or an excess-ively high or low voltage battery. 4.14 The charger will not recognise the connection of a battery which has a voltage substantially outside of its range or one of unsuitable chemistry type. 4.15 If the internal protection circuit of a PAG or Sony Li-Ion battery should turn-off, for any reason, the battery display will not operate, and there will be no voltage at the battery terminals. The PAGlink Cube incorporates a Recovery Charge program which will automatically turn the protection circuit back on again. 4.16 If the charger should detect a fault during operation, it will shut down to a safe condition. See Section 5.4 ‘Servicing and Repairs’. 7 4.17 If the AC mains power fails during operation, the charger will shut down safely; no damage will occur to either the charger or the batteries. When the mains power is restored the charger will default to the main charge program. 4.18 The PAG CPA Camera Power Adaptor is a separate unit that enables you to power your camera from an AC mains supply, using the Cube charger (see inside front cover). This unit can be connected to any channel on the Cube charger. Connection to the camera can be made using an XLR4 male to female adaptor lead (PAG Model 9450). When the unit is connected the Cube charger display indicates ‘CPA’ for that channel. When the CPA is in operation the display indicator flashes. SECTION 5 SERVICING & REPAIRS 5.1 WARNING: To reduce the risk of electric shock, do not attempt any servicing or repairs unless you are qualified to do so. Refer all servicing or repairs to qualified servicing personnel. The charger contains advanced electronics that do not require periodic maintenance. Consequently there are no user serviceable parts inside. 5.2 Qualified electronics engineers who wish to gain access to internal assemblies should note that parts of the power circuit retain a high voltage even after the mains supply has been disconnected. Wait for a period of five minutes following disconnection before commencing disassembly, and be aware of charged capacitors. 5.3 When the charger is correctly connected to a mains supply and the display is not functioning, it may be that a supply fuse has become open circuit. Equipment supplied for use in the UK is supplied with a standard UK mains cordset, complete with a moulded, fused plug. If this fuse has become open circuit it should be replaced by another of the correct rating (see ‘Specification’ section 2.12). USE ONLY A FUSE OF THE CORRECT RATING. If the replacement of the fuse fails to correct the above symptoms, do not attempt further fuse replacement. It is likely that a fault has developed. Seek advice from your nearest PAG dealer or direct from PAG Ltd., London, by telephoning +44 (0)20 8543 3131. 5.4 PAGlink Cube Chargers feature a fail-safe shutdown mode. In the unlikely event of an internal malfunction the charger will shut down to a safe condition. 8 Shut down could be the result of any number of undesirable situations from which the system is protecting itself, such as the obstruction of ventilation slots, causing inadequate cooling, or the microcomputer’s detection of an internal fault. In these cases the charger should be disconnected from the supply, any obstruction of the air vent system removed, and the unit allowed to cool before reconnecting to the supply. Should the charger re-enter the fail-safe shut down mode, more detailed investigation is required. Make a note of any error message and seek advice from your nearest PAG dealer or direct from PAG Ltd., London, by telephoning +44 (0)20 8543 3131. 5.5 Unqualified personnel should not attempt further investigation (see paragraph 5.1 above). Any such interference would invalidate the guarantee and invariably cause more damage than the original fault.
