OPERATING PROCEDURE
Verify that the charger is wired for the input AC source available. Connect the charger to AC
source. The AC POWER LED will illuminate.
Connect a battery with proper number of cells to the charger. All LED’s will flash for five
seconds. If the charger and battery are matched and all are in good working order, the charger
will check for the state of the battery and start charging. If the charger and battery are
mismatched or either is defective the charger will shutdown and display a fault code. Consult the
charger front panel label and this manual for fault codes.
The charger will automatically terminate the charge cycle when the DV/DT point is reached
unless the Equalize button is pressed or a fault condition occurs. After a normal charge
completion the CHARGE COMPLETE LED will illuminate. The battery can now be safely
unplugged since all charging has stopped. If the charger was still in charge mode, pressing the
STOP button would terminate the charging process and allow the battery to be safely
unplugged.
If the EQUALIZE button is pressed, the EQUALIZE LED will illuminate and the charge cycle will
terminate by the time set by the front panel rotary switch.
