SECTION 2
CARE & MAINTENANCE
2.1
STORAGE
Pagbelts can be stored indefinitely in any state of charge (even totally discharged) without significant loss of cell life. Maintenance charging is not
required. Store in a cool, dry place. Ideally the temperature should be from 20°C to +30°C. High storage temperatures (above +45°C) will reduce the
battery’s life because of unwanted chemical reactions. Excessively low
storage temperatures (below -30°C) are also to be avoided since the
electrolyte may freeze result-ing in permanent cell damage.
After prolonged storage do not fast-charge the battery immediately. The cells
should first be reformed and balanced by giving the battery a slow (C/10)
charge for 24 hours. When the battery is subsequently put into service, 2 or 3
cycles of charge and discharge may be needed to return the battery fully to its
rated capacity.
The battery belt should be in a fully charged state before use. Even after one
week in storage the battery should be given a top up charge before use.
At room temperature (20°C) Nickel-Cadmium batteries lose 1% of their charge
per day. The top-up charge needed is one hour at C/10 for each week of
storage.
2.2
Charge the battery belt only from constant current chargers - see Section 3,
Instructions For Use. Constant voltage chargers must not be used.
2.3
For maximum output, use within the temperature range 0°C to +40°C.
Never operate outside of the temperature range -20°C to +45°C.
4
2.4
Do not immerse the battery belt in water. Should this happen drain all excess
water and allow it to dry naturally in a warm place. Do not attempt to use or
charge the battery belt until it has fully dried.
2.5
Do not connect to mains supply while disassembled. Qualified electronics
engineers who wish to gain access to internal assemblies should note that
parts of the power circuit retain high voltage even after the mains supply has
been disconnected. Wait for a period of five minutes following disconnection
before disassembly.
2.6
The battery output is protected by means of a self-resetting over-current
device. If the output is overloaded, the device will trip, causing the output
to become open circuit. In this event, disconnect any equipment from the
output, and only reconnect it WHEN THE CAUSE OF OVERLOAD HAS BEEN
ESTABLISHED. This could be caused by a fault with the cables, the equipment
powered by the battery belt, the connectors, or a fault internal to the battery
belt.
2.7
The leather is wax treated during manufacture to resist water absorption in
normal use. Occasional cleaning and polishing with colourless wax polish will
maintain the suppleness of the leather, water resistance and appearance.
2.8
Nickel-Cadmium cells must never be replaced indiscriminately. All cells
used by PAG Limited are carefully graded and matched because battery
performance is only as good as the worst cell, and fitting unmatched
cells will quickly result in battery failure.
2.9
PAG Ltd. maintains a comprehensive Service Department for the repair and
service of all Nickel-Cadmium batteries and charging equipment. The department is based at the London factory and is therefore able to call upon full
manufacturing and test facilities. Should your Pagbelt require servicing we
recommend that you contact your PAG Dealer or the PAG Service Department
to maintain the quality standard for which you originally chose your Pagbelt.
SECTION 3
INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE
3.1
OPERATION OF THE ODP CIRCUIT.
Nickel-Cadmium batteries should not be discharged too deeply. If the voltage
of a battery pack falls below 75% of its nominal voltage (e.g. 9V for a 12V
battery) cells may be damaged by voltage reversal, thus shortening the life
of the battery.
To guard against this, all Pagbelts are provided with an Over-Discharge
Protection circuit which will cut power to the output connectors when the
5
belt has reached its maximum discharge state. See Section 2.5 for the table of
ODP trip voltages.
Additional to the above, the output sockets will also become isolated if the
cell temperature exceeds 70°C.
A single button is provided to reset these circuits and it is marked ODP reset.
If a battery belt is to be charged via an external charger the ODP circuit
should be reset if it has been tripped.
If the ODP circuit has tripped due to overheating of the cells, the belt must be
allowed ample time to cool (at least 1 hour) and the cause of the heating
established before the ODP circuit is reset.
Pagbelt IC2 incorporates an internal overnight charger. This charger is
independent of the ODP circuit.
3.2
GENERAL CHARGING INSTRUCTIONS.
Pagbelts must be charged only from constant current chargers. Constant
voltage chargers (as used for example for charging lead acid batteries) are
not suitable for use with Nickel-Cadmium batteries, and may damage them
irreparably.
When a battery belt has been discharged at high current rates it will become
warm, and it is advisable to let it cool before recharging it.
The recommended charging temperature range is 0°C to +40°C.
IC2 Pagbelts incorporate an internal overnight charger - see Section 3.3
below for operating instructions.
All Pagbelts may be fast-charged using the appropriate PAG microcomputercontrolled fast charger. See Section 3.4 below for instructions.
CHARGING FROM INTEGRAL CHARGERS.
WARNING: If moisture has entered the charger housing (such as may occur if
the belt has been immersed in water), it should be allowed to dry thoroughly
before being connected to the mains supply.
Ensure that no equipment is connected to the output connectors during the
charging process.
The charger housing will become warm in use. To allow adequate cooling,
do not place objects on or around the Pagbelt while it is being charged.
Connect the integral charger to the supply using the mains lead provided.
The charging indicator will light.
6
The integral charger will correctly charge the battery belt in 12 - 14 hours to
full capacity from a fully discharged state.
No damage or gain will result if the belt is left on charge using the integral
charger for an extended period beyond which the battery has become fully
charged.
3.4
FAST CHARGING.
PAG offers a range of sophisticated microcomputer-controlled two wire fastchargers which will safely charge Pagbelts and extend their working life.
Not all fast-chargers provide the close monitoring of the PAG ACS fast-charge
process which is essential to ensure safety and to maintain the life of the
battery. The PAG range of fast-chargers incorporate PAG ACS, a unique
microcomputer-control that enables these chargers to fast-charge safely any
reputable make of Nickel-Cadmium battery pack.
READ CHARGER HANDBOOK BEFORE USE.
Ensure that no equipment is connected to the output connectors during the
charging process, and ensure that the ODP cut-out is reset by pressing the
reset button.
Connect the charging lead from the charger to an output connector (XLR-4) on
the Pagbelt using an adaptor lead if necessary. PAG microcomputer-controlled
fast-chargers will automatically terminate the charging process when the
battery is fully charged. For typical charging times and full operating
instructions refer to the charger handbook.
Pagbelt IC2 only: Do not connect the integral charger to the mains supply
while the battery is being charged by means of an external charger.
SECTION 4
SAFETY
4.1
When used correctly, Nickel-Cadmium rechargeable batteries are a rugged,
safe, clean and trouble-free method of storing power. The cells offer high
energy densities and do not deteriorate when left in a discharged state,
making them ideally suited to applications where reliable portable power is
required.
However, the user should be aware that incorrect use can present a hazard. In
the interest of safety and the protection of our environment, please read and
observe the following health and safety information.
7
4.2
GENERAL:
Do not put in fire or mutilate - cells may burst or release toxic material.Do not
short circuit cells as this may cause burns.
4.3
CORROSIVE ELECTROLYTE:
The electrolyte is a mixture of potassium hydroxide (KOH) and water. This can
cause chemical burns to human tissue. Should leakage occur, wear protective
gloves when handling all contaminated materials.
In the event of contact with the skin, flood copiously with clean water.
If significant amounts of KOH are involved, or if any has touched the eyes,
seek medical attention.
4.4
ACCIDENTAL SHORT CIRCUITING:
Nickel-Cadmium cells can deliver power at very high rates. PAG battery belts
are protected at the output connectors by a self-resetting over-current device,
but severe mechanical abuse of a belt could result in damage to cells, and
short circuit internal to the battery. Arcing, excessive heat and the liberation
of combustible gas could result, with the potential for personal injury or
ignition of adjacent flammable materials.
4.5
DISPOSAL:
DO NOT MUTILATE BATTERIES - corrosive electrolyte will be released (see 4.3).
DO NOT INCINERATE - danger of explosion and release of toxic fumes.
DO NOT DISPOSE OF BATTERIES OR CELLS IN A CHARGED CONDITION (see 4.4).
Expired Nickel-Cadmium batteries must be disposed of in accordance with the
appropriate regulations or legislation.
PAG Limited offers a recycling service for expired PAG batteries.
These will then be properly and completely recycled. The potentially hazardous
materials will be recovered and used again in the production
of Nickel-Cadmium cells.
Return batteries by prior arrangement to:
