SECTION 3 INTRODUCTION
The QuarterHorse Industrial Battery Chargers are full wave, silicon rectified ferro-resonant
chargers. This charger is designed to output high rate current charge of 25A/100AH for
opportunity charging and 18A/100AH for standard charging applications, providing the ideal
solution for users to convert to Opportunity Charging with the safest and most effective method,
eliminating battery handling.
A real-time clock built-in controller:
e Provides total control of output current and voltage throughout the charge cycle.
e Terminates the charge cycle when the battery voltage reaches the gassing point to
prevent the battery from gassing then allows the charger to complete the full charge by
real time control.
Provides lock-out timer for off-peak operation.
Provides an opportunity to automatically equalize the battery at a programmable time of
day and day of the week.

8.2 CHARGING THE BATTERY
When a proper battery is connected, the display will count down from 5 to 0, then the red
CHARGING LED will illuminate. The cycle starts with high rate, constant current of 25A/100AH
or 18A/100AH, until the gassing voltage is reached. The “E” LED will illuminate at the beginning
of charge cycle. The Gas Gauge LEDs will indicate the state of charge.
The 80% point can be programmed at 2.37, 2.40, 2.42 or 2.45V/Cell in the Setup mode. When
the battery voltage reaches the 80% point, the charger enters the constant voltage mode and
the current gradually tapers off. When the programmed gassing point is reached:
e |fthe Gassing Shut-off function is enabled and during the full charge disabled period, the
charger shuts off and goes to idle mode in order to prevent the battery from gassing. The
charger will display “STOP AT 80” and the 80% CHARGED LED will illuminate. When the
full charge enabled period begins, the charger will automatically turn on to complete the full
charge cycle. The cool-down time will be displayed and the CHARGE COMPLETE LED will
Illuminate when the cycle is complete.
e |! the Gassing Shut-off function is set or during the full charge enabled period, the charger
will continue the regular full charge cycle.
In the regular full charge cycle, once the current drops to the finish rate current setting (5A per
100AH), the charge phase will change from constant voltage to constant current. The charge
cycle will terminate by DV/DT sensing. The cool-down time “COOL HH:MM” will display, the F
and CHARGE COMPLETE LEDs will illuminate at the completion of the full charge cycle.
8.3 EQUALIZE
Equalize cycle provides a timed three hour charge extension at the finish rate current after
DV/DT termination has been reached.
Auto Equalize: The Auto Equalize is selected by Setup Mode — every charge 5 cycles or at a
specific time of day and day of week (once a week). The first digit of the front panel display will
display “E” and the EQUALIZE LED will flash to indicate that the Equalize charge is selected.
When the charger is actually in the Equalize mode, the “E” will be flashing.
Manual Equalize: The EQUALIZE button, when pushed, will request the Equalize cycle. The first
character of the front panel display will display “E” and the EQUALIZE LED will flash to indicate
that the Equalize charge is selected. When the charger is actually in the Equalize mode, the “E”
will be flashing. Depressing the EQUALIZE button, prior to the Equalize cycle, will cancel the
Equalize function.
8.4 AUTO EQUALIZE DETAIL
The timed equalize charge, if selected, will occur once a week. The following paragraph outlines
this feature in detail.
AUTO EQUALIZE SELECT
Auto Equalize can be disabled, activated every 5 charge cycles or once a week at a specific
time of day and day of week. Refer to Section 6.1 for the Auto Equalize setup
AUTO EQUALIZE CANCELLATION
* Automatic equalize request cannot be cancelled by pressing the Equalize button. To cancel
auto equalize select, press the STOP button to interrupt charge, disconnect then reconnect
the battery.
e Manual equalize select can be cancelled by pressing the Equalize button again.
13
AUTO EQUALIZE ACTIVATION
When the set time and set day are matched, equalize cycle can be activated at the following
conditions:
When the charge is in progress, the equalize cycle will start immediately after completing the
100% charge cycle.
When the 100% charge cycle is already completed, the charger will automatically turn on to
equalize charge the battery for 3 hours.
When the 100% charge cycle is not complete, because the battery voltage reached 80%
before the full charge enable window was reached (1:00 to 5:00 is default setting of the full
charge enable window), the charger will immediately resume to complete the 100% charge,
then add three hours of equalize charge.
When the battery is not connected, the Equalize Cycle will be accomplished the next time
the battery is connected. The charger will remain on throughout the cycle until the Equalize
cycle is complete and will not shut off at the gassing point.
FULL CHARGE TIME WINDOW
When the battery voltage reaches the 80% point within this window, the charge cycle will
continue to fully charge the battery.
When the battery voltage reaches the 80% point outside this window, the charger will shut
off and resume when the ON time is reached.
When the OFF time is reached, the charge will continue until the charge cycle is complete.
When the Equalize Time is set before the ON time of the full charge cycle, the charge cycle
will resume, the charger will fully charge the battery then continue the 3 hour Equalize cycle.

WARNING
HIGH VOLTAGES EXIST WITHIN THE CHARGER WHICH CAN CAUSE SEVERE INJURY
OR DEATH. SERVICE SHOULD ONLY BE PERFORMED BY QUALIFIED SERVICE
PERSONNEL. IMPROPER SERVICING MAY DAMAGE THE CHARGER.
SECTION 12 TROUBLESHOOTING GUIDE
SYMPTOM 1 POWER IS APPLIED BUT THE DISPLAY IS NOT ON
Make sure the input line from the AC power outlet is connected at the AC fuse block properly.
Verify the AC voltage at the fuse block.
Locate the control transformer. Verify the voltage at the primary of the transformer. If there is no
voltage, check the wiring between the control transformer and the contactor.
Verify the secondary voltage of the control transformer across terminals 5 and 7. The voltage
should be approximately 18-20 Volts RMS. If there is no voltage, the transformer is defective
and should be replaced. If the secondary voltage is extremely high or low, verify that the AC
voltage is connected to the proper primary inputs of the control transformer. (Refer to
SECTION 11.2.2)
Locate the Main Control Board and the Cell Select Board. Verity the proper connection of the
boards and cables.
SYMPTOM 2 DISPLAY IS ON BUT CHARGER WILL NOT START
If the “CHARGER READY” is displayed, check the battery connections and the output fuse for
open fuse.
If “HIVOLT" is displayed, verify that the number of cells of the battery to be charged matches
the number of cells on the nameplate (located on the external surface of the door).
If “LOVOLT" is displayed, verify that the number of cells of the battery to be charged matches
the number of cells on the nameplate. If the number of cells matches, the battery might have
been over-discharged. Refer to Section 9.2 for Low Volts Override operation.
SYMPTOM 3 DISPLAY COUNTS DOWN BUT SHUTDOWN IMMEDIATELY
If "ERR 27 is displayed, check the 20-pin flat cable between main control board on the back of
the front panel and inductor board mounted on the chassis.
If ‘ERR 17, “ERR 3"or “HICURR" is displayed within first 10 seconds after power-up, try
reversing two of the AC input leads to see if this solves the problem.
If ‘ERR 1”, "ERR 3" or “HICURR” is displayed after 10 seconds, the following checklist should
be performed to resolve this problem:
- Is cable harness connected properly between the main control board and the inductor
board?
- |s “COMMON” of the control transformer connected to the AC input phase C' (see
schematic)?
- Is the other terminal of the control transformer connected to the AC input phase ‘A’ (see
schematic)?
- Check all diodes and capacitors

For 240/480/575V AC input models
Is phase “A” wiring, as indicated on the label at the AC Fuse Block, connected to terminal
“A” of the main transformer T1 through the contactor? (main transformer T1 has the
12-position terminal block) (See schematic)?
Is phase “B’ wiring, as indicated on the label at the AC Fuse Block, connected to terminal
“B” of the main transformer T1 through the contactor? (main transformer T1 has the
12-position terminal block) (See schematic)?
Is phase “C” wiring, as indicated on the label at the AC Fuse Block, connected to terminal
“C” of the tickler transformer T2 through the contactor? (tickler transformer T2 has the
6-position terminal block) (See schematic)?
For 480/575/600V AC input models
Is phase “A” wiring, as indicated on the label at the AC Fuse Block, connected to terminal
“‘B” of the main transformer T1 through the contactor? (main transformer T1 has the
12-position terminal block) (See schematic)?
Is phase “B" wiring, as indicated on the label at the AC Fuse Block, connected to terminal
“A” of the main transformer T1 through the contactor? (main transformer T1 has the
12-position terminal block) (See schematic)?
Is phase “C” wiring, as indicated on the label at the AC Fuse Block, connected to terminal
“C" of the tickler transformer T2 through the contactor? (tickler transformer T2 has the
6-position terminal block) (See schematic)?
Are the cables from capacitor winding 7 of the main transformer T1 and from terminal M3 of
the inductor board connected to the same side of the resonant capacitor?
Is the cable from capacitor winding 8 of the main transformer T1 connected to the power
resistor mounted near the capacitor?
Are the cables from the other side of the power resistor and from terminal M4 of the control
assembly connected to the same side of the capacitor?
Are the cables from capacitor winding 7 of the second transformer T2 and from terminal M1
of the inductor board connected to the same side of the resonant capacitor?
Is the cable from capacitor winding 8 of the second transformer T2 connected to the power
resistor mounted near the capacitor?
Are the cables from the other side of the power resistor and from terminal M2 of the control
assembly connected to the same side of the capacitor?
SYMPTOM 4 CHARGE TERMINATES EARLY
о Fault code "LOVOLT” - Low volts per cell - the average battery voltage is less than 1.5
V/Cell. Check for bad cells.
e Fault code “HIVOLT"- High volts per cell - the average battery voltage is greater than the
high voltage limit. The battery may be fully charged before connecting to the charger.
e Fault code “DISC” - Battery is disconnected from charger during charge.
a Fault code “DUR HR” or “DUR FR” - Charge time exceeded — the battery voltage did not
reach the gassing point within the specified time in High Rate or does not shut off within 6
hours from Gassing Point. Check for bad cells or deep discharge condition.
e Fault code “LOCURR” - Low charging current — no charging current detected or charging
current is too low. Check the DC fuse for open fuse and defective AC contactor circuit.
e Display “STOP” - Charge cycle is terminated by pressing the STOP button.
