Charger
OBAE, OBAEXU, ON BOARD Battery Chargers
INTRODUCTION:
The OBAE line of chargers are designed for the permanent installation on battery powered
vehicles and equipment. They are an electronically controlled two stage charger. The first stage
brings the batteries to the gassing threshold where a three hour timer starts. The batteries are then
gassed for three hours. After three hours, the charger drops into a low float mode where the
charge is maintained in the batteries indefinitely. Finish current is below 1 amp.
SOME APPLICATIONS:
Golf cars, pallet trucks, personnel carriers, scissor lifts, floor scrubbers, stand-by power
applications, robotics.
IMPORTANT: DO NOT USE THIS CHARGER UNTIL YOU HAVE READ ALL THE
INSTRUCTIONS.
INITIAL INSTALLATION:
Before making AC connections, refer to the AC requirements labeled on the charger. If your
charger is not equipped with an AC plug (a 220 volt model) have a qualified electrician install
one.
CAUTION: To reduce the risk of fire, use this charger only on circuits provided with
a maximum of 20 ampere branch circuit protection (circuit breaker or fuse),
In accordance with the National Electric Code, ANSI/NFPA 70, and all local
codes and ordinances.
GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS:
This battery charger must be grounded to reduce the risk of electric shock. If the charger is
equipped with a grounding type plug, it must be plugged into a nominal 115 volt, 60 Hertz
circuit. If the charger is supplied with no plug, have a qualified service person install one.
WARNING: Improper connection of the equipment grounding conductor can result in a
risk of an electric shock. DO NOT USE THIS CHARGER ON A TWO
POLE UNGROUNDED OUTLET OR ATTEMPT TO BREAK OFF THE
GROUND PRONG FOR USE ON A RECEPTACLE OR EXTENSION
CORD NOT HAVING A GROUND.
The use of an extension cord with this charger should be avoided. The use of an improper
extension cord result in a risk of a fire or electric shock. If an extension cord must be used, make
sure it is in good condition. Use a three conductor cord no smaller than 14 AWG . And keep it as
short as possible. Locate all cords so that they will not be stepped on, tripped over, or otherwise
subjected to damage or stress.
Do not operate this charger if it shows any signs of physical damage
1
PROPER CARE AND USE OF BATTERIES:
CAUTION: Always wear protective eye shields and clothing when working with batteries.
Batteries contain acids which can cause bodily harm. Do not put wrenches or
other metal objects across the battery terminal or battery top. Arcing or
explosion of the battery can result. Do not wear jewelry when working around
batteries. Arcing can cause sever burns.
New batteries will not deliver their full performance until after several cycles.
The tops of the batteries and battery hold downs must be kept clean and dry at all times to
prevent excessive self discharge and flow of current between the battery post and frame.
Maintain the proper electrolyte level by adding water when necessary. Never allow the
electrolyte level to fall below the top of the battery plates. Electrolyte levels fall during
discharge and rise during charging. Therefore, to prevent the overflow of electrolyte when
charging, add water ONLY AFTER the batteries have been fully charged DO NOT
OVERFILL. Old batteries require more frequent additions of water than do new batteries.
Do not over discharge the batteries. Excessive discharge can cause polarity reversal of
individual cells resulting in complete battery failure.
MOUNTING:
Consider the following information when selecting a place to mount the charger.
It is normal for the charger case to become hot when charging. Provide adequate ventilation for
the batteries and charger, and consider inadvertent flesh contact. Do not obstruct the flow of
cooling air around the charger. Do not install the charger in enclosed spaces without ventilation.
Provide at least 6" of space around charger. Do not allow clothing, blankets or other material to
cover the charger. While the charger resists moisture, do not expose it to long periods of rain,
washing, or splashing, it is not water proof. The charger can be mounted in any position, there
is no right side up. Mount it firmly in place.
WARNING: Chargers can ignite flamm able materials and vapors. Do not use near fuels,
grain, dust, solvents, or other flammable’s.
CAUTION: Before connecting the charger to the batteries, make sure the battery pack is of
the same voltage rating of the charger. If you are unsure, count the number of
cells on the battery pack and multiply by two. This figure should be the same
as the DC voltage rating of the charger. (see ratings label on charger).
2
Below is an illustration of Parallel and Series battery packs.
WARNING: Make sure the DC output leads, terminals or connector are all in good
working condition.
DO NOT USE TH IS CHARG ER IF:
The DC output connector, (if equipped) is loose or does not make good contact; Is cracked or
broken; The leads are cut or have exposed wires; The DC outpu t leads or connector feel hot when
used.
Using this charger with any of the above symptoms could result in a fire, property damage, or
personal injury. Have a qualified service person make the necessary repairs. Repairs should not
be made by people who are not qualified.
NORMAL OPERATION:
1.) When connecting charge leads directly to the battery, apply grease to the terminals to inhibit
corrosion.
2.) Plug the charger into AC power having the same ratings as that of the charger.
3). The LED on the charger will light, indicating charge current is flowing.
4). The OBAE chargers are equipped with a electronic timer. At the battery gassing threshold,
(2.3 volts per cell) the timer will activate and run for three hours. During this period, the
batteries are in a gassing mode. (2.5 - 2.6 volts per cell max.) After three hours the charger
will drop the batteries into a low float mode, indicated by a blinking LED. (2.26 volts per
cell) Current in the float mode is less than 1 amp.
The charger may be left on indefinitely, but water level should be checked periodically on
wet batteries.
5). To discontinue charging, unplug the AC power cord. Plugging the AC power back in will
cause the charger to repeat the cycle.
10
3
EQUALIZATION:
When using multiple batteries in series, cells become uneven during charge and discharge cycles.
At least once a month perform two charge cycles back to back, this will bring up cells that are
lagging behind full charged cells and is important to overall battery performance.
WARNING: Do not disconnect the DC output leads or unplug the connector from the
batteries when the charger is on. The resulting arcing could cause the
batteries to explode. If the charger must be stopped unplug the AC power.
WARNING: Failure to unplug AC power before moving or driving equipment will result
in damage to cords, plugs and receptacles.
TROUBLE SHOOTING:
CAUTION: DO NOT DISASSEM BLE THE CHARGER. Incorrect assembly may result
in a risk of electric shock or fire. Contact factory.
DANGER: To reduce the risk of electric shock, always disconnect both the AC power
supply cord and the output leads or connector before attempting any maintenance
cleaning.
1). LED DOES NOT COME ON WH EN POWER IS APPLIED
Be sure you are plugged into a live circuit. Check the AC cord for breaks in the cord or plug.
Check the DC leads for breaks. Check the DC connections to the battery, clean if heavily
corroded.
Place a volt meter across the battery terminals where the charger is connected. Apply AC
power. If the voltage rises on the battery, the charger is working and the LED is defective.
NOTE: LED’s do not burn out, but it has probably received a sharp blow causing physical
damage. No harm will come from operating the charger without a working LED.
2). LED NEVER BLINKS
This could be one of two problems. The batteries never reached timer trip voltage and the
charger was unable to gas and fall into the float mode. This indicates several shorted cells.
overheating and excessive water usage are symptoms of this condition. Performance will
also be greatly diminished. Replace defective battery.
The charger did reach the float mode, but the battery has one or more shorted cells inhibiting
the charger current to fall low enough to start the LED blinking. Replace defective battery.
3). AC LINE FUSE OR CIRCUIT BREAKER BLOWS
Either the circuit breaker or fuse is weak, or the charger is shorted internally.
4). NO POW ER IS PRESENT ACROSS THE DC LE ADS WHEN A VOLT METER IS
CONNECTED
Good. The charger will not turn on until leads are connected, correct polarity to the battery.

11
5). BATTERIES DON’T RECEIVE FULL CHARGE
The battery you are charging may be to large for the charger, or if you have the charger
plugged into a long extension cord that is too small, a voltage drop will cause a decrease in
charger output, extending charge times.

between the bonding lug on the inverter and the
system ground or vehicle chassis.
3.05 DC Wiring - FIG. 1
3.05.1
CAUTION: Assure that hydrogen
gas does not accumulate near the battery by
keeping the area well ventilated. A spark may
result when connecting the final battery wiring due
to initial charging of the internal input capacitor.
3.05.2 Use stranded, copper 350 MCM ga. wire
between the battery and the inverter as indicated.
Keep the distance to less than 10 feet if possible.
A 800 amp line fuse must be installed between the
battery and the inverter. UL requires that the fuse
be within 18 inches of the battery.
3.05.3 Use only an approved fuse holder
with a U.L. listed fuse as indicated above.
3.05.4 Using smaller input cable or longer
length will greatly degrade the inverter surge
performance. IMPORTANT NOTE FOR VEHICLE
INSTALLATION: Do not use the vehicle chassis
as the negative return in place of a return cable.
Use the same size cable as the positive connection
and run directly to the battery.
3.05.5
Install the wires at the battery,
inverter and then fuse holder. Make sure that
good, clean connections are made. Use care not
to touch the positive and negative wires together.
This will result in a violent spark and could result
in exploding batteries and fire.
3.05.6 The battery input terminals are
located in the wiring campartment. A mounting
spark may result when connecting the battery
wire, due to an initial charging of the internal input
capacitor.
3.05.7 CAUTION: Connecting the inverter
to the wrong polarity of the battery will cause
damage that is not covered under warranty.
3.06 Remote ON/OFF Switch - FIG. 1
3.06.1 All material used for the remote
switch should be U.L. listed and installed per low
voltage, Class 2, wiring code.
3.06.2 The remote switch should be single
pole and have at. least a 1 amp rating, such as
Leviton No. 1330-2. The wire used should be at
least 18 gauge.
3.06.3 The switch should be mounted at a
convenient location. in a listed outlet box with
approved strain relief.
3.06.4 A remote switch must be connected to the orange wire marked “Remote Switch
Hookup” in the wiring compartment. Fused (1
amp), positive +12 battery voltage should be
connected to the other side of the switch. Battery
negative should be connected to the black wire.
Cable clamp strain relief should be used to secure
the field wires.
3.07 220Y/120 VAC Output
3.07.1 CAUTION: Do not connect another
source of AC power directly to the output of the
inverter. This will result in damage to the inverter
that is not covered under warranty!
3.07.2 The A.C. output is presented at the
A.C. wiring compartment. The 3 phase outputs
are labeled “L1”, “L2”, “L3”. There is also an A.C.
neutral labeled “N” and a chassis ground labeled
“G”.
3.07.3 To obtain 220 VAC, 3 phase output,
a connection must be made to L1,L2, and L3.
3.07.4 To obtain 220 VAC, single phase
output, a connection should be made to any two
Page 3
16
of the hot leads, as L1 and L2, or L1 and L3, or L2
and L3.
3.07.5 To obtain 120 VAC, single phase output a connection should be made to any one hot
lead and to AC neutral “N”; as L1 and N, or L2 and
N, or L3 and N.
3.07.6
Remote AC outlets should
be mounted at a convenient location in a listed
outlet box with approved strain relief, if used.
4. OPERATION
4.01 To operate the inverter, turn the output
circuit breaker switch to “ON”, turn “ON” the
inverter on/off switch and turn “ON” the remote
switch.
b) If the overload light is lit, check output
wiring for short circuit. Otherwise, the load is too
large for the power rating of the inverter.
c) If the High temperature light is lit, the
inverter must be left cool to 40 C. Check to see
that the inverter is not in a closed compartment and
that the fans are not blocked.
5.03.4 If the above steps are completed
and the inverter still will not operate satisfactorily
call ARI-HETRA for a return authorization number.

NOTE: Since the inverter has a quasi-sine waveform, a TRUE RMS volt meter is required for an
accuarte reading. Other volt meters that use
averaging circuitry will give incorrect readings.
5.02 If the inverter fails to operate, use the
following trouble-shooting procedure.
5.02.1 Connect a 100 watt light bulb to each
120 VAC phase and disconnect all other output
wiring.
5.02.2
Make sure the inverter is turned
“ON” and the output circuit breaker is also “ON”.
5.03.3 Observe the fault indicating lights on
the front of the inverter.
a) If the Low battery light is lit, turn inverter
“Off” for 5 seconds, then turn “On” again. If the
light again turns on, check wiring, DC source
voltage, and line fuse. The battery voltage test
lights can be used for troubleshooting low battery
