INSTALLATION WARNING
WARNING: THERE ARE NO USER SERVICEABLE PARTS INSIDE. HAZARDOUS VOLTAGES EXIST INSIDE THE UNIT.
SERVICE AND REPAIR MUST BE REFERRED TO QUALIFIED FACTORY PERSONNEL.
NOTE: The individual user should take care to determine, prior to use or installation, whether this device is suitable, adequate or safe
for the use intended. Since individual applications are subject to great variation, DuraComm makes no representation or warranty as to
the merchantability, suitability or fitness of these units for any specific application.
NOTE: The precision regulated power supplies operate internally from voltages in excess of 300 volts. In rare cases, voltage spikes or
transients on the AC power line, or over heating, may cause a component failure in the power supply. Overloading the output will cause
the over current feature to operate. In either case, the cause must be determined and corrected.
Failures require investigation as to cause and/or repair of the unit.
INSTALLER NOTES
NOTE: The PB-360 Series Charger is only suitable for lead-acid type batteries (
NOTE: The charger should be installed in a place with good ventilation and low moisture. Exposure to rain or snow is strictly
prohibited.
NOTE: The PB-360 charger is equipped with remote control (R.C.) connector. Open= Normal operation, Short= Stop Charging
NOTE: The output voltage of the charger is preset to 57.6 Vboost & 54.4 Vfloat. Output voltage of the charger can be adjusted through
the Vadj. With batteries disconnected and this will affect both the value Vboost and Vfloat. Please consult the battery manufacturer for
the suitable charging voltage before making any adjustment.
WARNING: Be certain to locate the battery in a well ventilated area. During recharging, small amounts of hydrogen gas may be
produced. Hydrogen gas is highly flammable and under the right conditions, explosive.
PB-360-48 WIRING LAYOUT
Make sure the charger is off and choose suitable wires to connect the charger and batteries based on the charging current (6.25
Amps). Charger output (+) should be connected to the (+) terminal of the battery and charger output (-) should be connected to the (-)
terminal. Select the correct input VAC (115 or 230) with the switch located on the charger. Set the ON/OFF switch to on (-) and check
operation of the LED (RED=charging, GREEN= battery is full.

CONDUCTOR PRETREATMENT
All kinds of copper conductors can be clamped without treatment. DO NOT solder tin stranded conductors. The solder yields and
fractures under high pressure. The result is increased contact resistance and excessive temperature rise. Additionally, corrosion has
been observed due to the fluxes. Notch fractures at the transition from the rigid tinned part to the flexible conductors are also possible.
Ferrules can be used as a protection when wiring stranded conductors. Copper ferrules prevent the current transfer from being
influenced by dissimilar metals and remove the risk of corrosion. Always use the correct tool to crimp the ferrule.
