OPERATION
3 OPERATION
3.1
FEATURES
The Mastervolt Chargemaster is a fully automatic battery
charger. This means that under normal circumstances it
may stay switched on with the AC power and batteries
connected. The Chargemaster is suitable for charging of
lead-acid batteries which may include maintenance-free,
low maintenance, AGM/spiral, gel or deep-cycle batteries.
It has an auto-ranging input facility which makes it feasible
to operate on almost any AC power source in the world. It
operates smoothly on both 230V as well as on 120V
without any compromises for the output current. The threestep Plus charging method guarantees that the batteries
are always charged to 100%.
With an external AC source connected, the Chargemaster
charger also serves the function of an AC to DC converter
to supply DC loads which are connected to the batteries.
3.2
SWITCHING ON / STAND-BY
The Chargemaster is activated by holding the POWER
switch pressed for approx. 3 seconds. The POWER switch
will illuminate green. The state of charge (which is stored
in the memory of the Chargemaster) will be displayed. If
necessary and if AC power is available, the Chargemaster
will start to charge the batteries.
EN / Chargemaster1 12/35-3, 12/50-3, 24/20-3 & 24/30-3 / October 2008
Once switched on, the ChargeMaster
automatically resumes operation after it was
disconnected from an AC-source temporarily.
By pressing the POWER button again for approx. 3
seconds, the Chargemaster will switch back to stand-by:
the Chargemaster stops and the POWER switch
illuminates red.
WARNING
Switching the Chargemaster to “stand-by”
does not cut off the connection to the batteries
or the AC-source. This means that voltages
are still available inside the apparatus.
If the Chargemaster was switched to stand-by or AC
power became unavailable, the POWER switch starts to
blink red. After approximately 2 minutes the blinking will
stop and the display will switch off, thus preventing battery
load by the indication light.

3.4
THREE STEP CHARGE ALGORITHM
BATTERY VOLTAGE
BULK
ABSORPTION
FLOAT
The first step of the three step Plus charge system is the
BULK phase, in which the output current of the charger is
100%, and the greater part of the capacity of the battery is
rapidly charged. The current charges the batteries and
gradually the voltage rises to the absorption voltage of
14.4V (12V models) or 28.8V (24V models) at 25°C / 77°F.
The duration of this phase depends on the ratio of battery
to charger capacity, and also on the degree to which the
batteries were discharged to begin with.
CHARGE CURRENT
TIME
Figure 3: Three step Plus charge system
See figure 3. Battery charging is accomplished in three
automatic stages: BULK, ABSORPTION and FLOAT.
8
October 2008 / Chargemaster1 12/35-3, 12/50-3, 24/20-3 & 24/30-3 / EN
OPERATION
The bulk phase is followed by the ABSORPTION phase.
Absorption charging starts when the voltage on the
batteries has reached 14.4V (12V models) / 28.8V (24V
models) at 25°C / 77°F, and ends when the battery is
completely full. Battery voltage remains constant at 14.25V
(12V models) / 28.5V (24V models) at 25°C / 77°F
throughout this stage, and the charge current depends on
the degree to which the battery was initially discharged,
the battery type, the ambient temperature, and so on. With
a wet cell battery this stage lasts some four hours, with gel
and AGM around three. Once the battery is 100% full, the
Chargemaster automatically switches over to the float
phase.
During the FLOAT phase the Chargemaster switches to
13.25V (12V models) or 26.5V (24V models) at 25°C /
77°F and stabilises this voltage to maintain the batteries in
an optimum condition. Connected DC-loads are powered
directly by the charger. If the load is higher than charger
capacity, the required additional power comes from the
battery, which will be progressively discharged until the
charger automatically switches back to the bulk phase.
Once consumption decreases, the charger goes back to
normal operation of the three-step charge system.
As the Chargemaster is equipped with a three-step Plus
charge system, the batteries can also remain connected to
the Chargemaster in winter. One hour every 12 days the
charger automatically switches to absorption to keep the
battery running properly and prolong its life span. The
three-step Plus charge system is also safe for all the
connected equipment.
See
also
section
8.4
for
detailed
characteristics of the three step Plus charge
system.
3.4.1
See figure 4. When the battery temperature is low, the
charge voltage increases. On the other hand, when the
battery temperature is high, the charge voltage is
decreased. Over charge and gassing are prevented this
way. This will extend the life of your batteries.
3.4.2
3.5
MASTERBUS (OPTIONAL)
The Chargemaster is compatible with the MasterBus
network: a fully decentralized data network for
communication between the different Mastervolt system
devices such as the inverter, battery charger, generator,
batteries and many more. See chapter 6 for details.
3.6
MAINTENANCE
No specific maintenance to the Chargemaster is required.
Examine your electrical installation on a regular base, at
least once a year. Defects such as loose connections,
burnt wiring etc. must be corrected immediately.
If necessary, use a soft clean cloth to clean cabinet of the
Chargemaster. Never use any liquids, acids and/or
scourers.
3.7
FAILURES
The Chargemaster is protected against overload, short
circuit, over heating and under and over voltage. If a fault
condition occurs, a load bar segment on the display
illuminates red. The LED position indicates the failure
cause. See section 3.3 and 7.1 for explanation.
CAUTION!
The Chargemaster is not protected against:
Temperature compensated charging
By installing the battery temperature sensor the charge
voltages are automatically adapted for deviating
temperatures.
Connection of a second and third battery
The Chargemaster is equipped with three equal outputs.
The total output current is divided over these three
outputs. See section 4.6 for connection.

CONNECTION
CAUTION!
WARNING
Let installation work be done by a licensed
electrician. Before beginning with the
connection of the wiring, make the AC
distribution as well as the DC distribution
voltage free.
CAUTION!
Short circuiting or reversing polarity may lead
to serious damage to the batteries, the
Chargemaster, the cabling and/or the terminal
connections. Fuses between the batteries and
the Chargemaster can not prevent damage
caused by reversed polarity. The damage as
a result of reverse polarity is detectable by the
service department and is not covered by the
warranty.
12
Too-thin cables and/or loose connections can
cause dangerous overheating of the cables
and/or terminals. Therefore tighten all
connections well, in order to limit transition
resistance as far as possible. Use cables of
the correct size.
NOTE:
If the battery temperature remains within 1525°C, connection of the battery temperature
sensor is optional.
NOTE:
The Chargemaster is only feasible for the
connection of MasterBus compatible remote
control panels.

4.7
INSTALLATION STEP BY STEP
For the ChargeMaster step by step installation, see the
Installation manual (included in delivery).
4.8
COMMISSIONING AFTER INSTALLATION
If your ChargeMaster is not new, you have to
take into account that former users may have
changed
the
settings.
Reset
the
ChargeMaster to factory settings when there
is any doubt (see section 6.3.).
4.8.1
General
The factory settings of the ChargeMaster are optimal for
most installations. With some applications however, it is
desirable to change these settings. Therefore several
adjustments can be made. See chapter 5.
NOTE:
The DIP-switches must be adjusted prior to
commissioning; all other settings can only be
made after commissioning.
CAUTION!
Check the polarity of all wiring before
commissioning: positive connected to positive
(red cables), negative connected to negative
(black cables).
If all wiring is OK, place the DC-fuse(s) of the DCdistribution to connect the batteries to the Chargemaster.
4.8.2
MasterBus
During first commissioning the Chargemaster will be
recognized by the MasterBus network automatically. The
remote control panel of the MasterBus network will
indicate that a new device was found.
Some settings can only be changed via the MasterBus
interface. See section 6.3 for an overview of all available
MasterBus settings. Refer to the user’s manual of the
remote control panel to change these settings.
4.9
DECOMMISSIONING
If it is necessary to put the Chargemaster out of operation,
follow the instructions in order of succession as described
below:
1
2
3
4

6
Switch the Chargemaster to stand-by (see section
3.2).
Remove the DC-fuse(s) of the DC-distribution and/or
disconnect the batteries.
Remove the AC-fuse(s) of the AC-input and/or
disconnect the AC-mains.
Open the connection compartment of the
Chargemaster.
Check with a suitable voltage meter whether the
inputs and the outputs of the Chargemaster are
voltage free.
Disconnect all the wiring.
Now the Chargemaster can be demounted in a safe way.
4.10 STORAGE AND TRANSPORTATION
WARNING
When placing this fuse, a spark can occur,
caused by the capacitors used in the
Chargemaster. This is particularly dangerous
in places with insufficient ventilation, due to
the gassing of the batteries an explosion can
occur. Avoid having flammable materials
close by.
Now the Chargemaster is ready for operation. After
switching on the AC power supply the Chargemaster will
initiate the charging process.
14
When not installed, store the Chargemaster in the original
packing, in a dry and dust free environment.
Always use the original packing for transportation. Contact
your local Mastervolt Service Centre for further details if
you want to return the apparatus for repair.
4.11 RE-INSTALLATION

DIP switch 4: Equalize mode
WARNING
Incorrect use of the equalize mode may lead
to hazardous situations.
Do not smoke; use any naked flame or other
sources of ignition due to risk of explosion.
Always ventilate the room were the batteries
are located and equalized to clear the air.
Equalization is ONLY applicable for wet type
batteries and will damage gel and AGM type
batteries.
An equalizing charge can be necessary after very deep
discharges and/or inadequate charges. This has to be
carried out according to the specifications of the
manufacturer of the batteries.
Off

During equalizing the batteries are brought into the gas
state and is it possible that the permitted load voltages are
exceeded. Therefore appropriate measures must be
taken, e.g. disconnect all loads from the battery and
ventilate the room. For these reasons use of the equalizing
mode should only be executed by trained technical
engineers.
The equalizing mode can only be started when the
Chargemaster is in operation and in Float. This means that
the connection compartment of the Chargemaster must be
opened while connected to the mains and the batteries.
Take adequate measures for protection against short
circuits and electrical shocks.
To start the equalize mode: move DIP switch 4 to the ON
position and back to the OFF position.

6.1
WHAT IS MASTERBUS?
All devices that are suitable for MasterBus are
marked by the MasterBus symbol.
glance and a push of a button. All monitoring panels can
be used for monitoring, control and configuration of all
connected MasterBus devices.
MasterBus is a fully decentralized data network for
communication between the different Mastervolt system
devices. It is a CAN-bus based communication network
which has proven a reliable bus-system in automotive
applications. MasterBus is used as power management
system for all connected devices, such as the inverter,
battery charger, generator and many more. This enables
communication between the connected devices, for
instance to start the generator when the batteries are low.
New devices can be added to the existing network in a
very easy way by just extending the network. With this the
MasterBus network offers a high degree of flexibility for
extended system configuration, not only today, but in the
future as well!
Mastervolt also offers several interfaces, making even
non-MasterBus devices suitable to operate in the
MasterBus network.
For direct communication between the MasterBus network
and a product which is not from Mastervolt, the Modbus
interface is recommended.
MasterBus reduces complexity of electrical systems by
using UTP patch cables. All system components are
simply chained together. The results are a reduction of
material costs as only a few electrical cables are needed
and less installation time.
CAUTION: Never connect a non-MasterBus
device to the MasterBus network directly! This
will void warranty of all MasterBus devices
connected.
For central monitoring and control of the connected
devices Mastervolt offers a wide range of panels which
show full status information of your electrical system at a

The event configuration of the ChargeMaster as target and

HOW TO
NETWORK
SET
UP
A
MASTERBUS
Every device suitable for the MasterBus network is
equipped with two data ports. When two or more devices
are connected by these ports, they form a local data
network, called the MasterBus.
Keep the following rules in mind:
The connected devices provide the electric power for
the network. At least one device in the network should
have powering capabilities (see specifications).
One powering device can power up to three nonpowering devices. As all powering devices are
galvanically isolated, multiple powering devices are
allowed.
Connections between the devices are made by
standard straight UTP patch cables. Mastervolt can
supply these cables. These cables are also commonly
available at computer supply stores.
