MARINE BATTERY CHARGERS
FEATURES OF THE NEW PD2100 SERIES
MARINE BATTERY CHARGERS
MODEL PD2160
The new 2100 Series of Marine Battery Chargers incorporate a
digital meter and a new microprocessor that will provide many
new features. The rest of the unit will maintain our proven
charging system that has been perfected over the past eight
years. All models will maintain the same physical size and
weight as the present 2000 Series.
FEATURE #1 – The digital meter will display current readings to .1 amps, with +/- 5% accuracy and voltage
readings to .01 with +/- 2% accuracy. This will allow your engineering associates to accurately determine
the total DC load, as well as the amp draw from individual components.

FEATURE #2 – The meter will display in words the actual Mode that the unit is operating in (BOOST,
NORMAL, STORAGE) rather than trying to determine the mode from a blinking light, as is now the case in
our 2000 Series chargers. All modes are automatically selected based on voltage readings that are
constantly fed to the microprocessor from the batteries. The customer will still be able to manually select
individual modes if they wish. In the event of severely discharged battery, the dealer or customer can select
the BOOST MODE, which will engage for 4-hours to recharge the battery. After this 4-hour period the
charger will automatically return to the NORMAL MODE of operation to prevent battery damage.
FEATURE #3 – Normally the meter display is in the AUTOMATIC MODE and the meter reading will
continuously cycle through Battery Type (meter will display LA, GEL or AG), V1, V2, V3 voltages and Total
Current Output readings. To determine if the charger is operating properly and aid in trouble shooting, the
operator can switch the display to the MANUAL MODE by pressing then releasing the DISPLAY MODE
button. In the MANUAL MODE, the meter will first display Battery Type, now each time the operator
presses and releases the DISPLAY SELECT button the meter will first display VDC (the internal voltage of
the charger, which should read approximately 14.3-volts), then V1, V2 and V3 voltages which should read
approximately 13.9-volts, then Total Output Current and then back to Battery Type.

In the AUTOMATIC MODE,
the meter displays Battery
Type, V1, V2, V3 and then
Total Output Current
sequentially.
In the MANUAL MODE you
must press and release the
DISPLAY SELECT
BUTTON to scroll through
the various readings.
FEATURE #4 – The meter will display the status of the REVERSE BATTERY PROTECTION FUSES. This
eliminates the need to physically remove the wiring compartment cover and remove the fuses to see if they
are blown. If the fuses are blown, the digital display will flash ERR, while the Storage Indicator and the
Fuse Status Indicator will flash “On and OFF” at ½ second intervals. This new feature will provide a clear
indication that the fuses are blown and that one or more of the batteries are connected in reverse. Note:
This feature only operates when AC power is applied to the charger.

FEATURE #5 – The system has a self-test feature that is automatically activated each time the charger is
powered up. The display will go through a special power-up sequence so the operator can determine if all
the display elements are functional and all voltage levels can be activated. The microprocessor also
continuously monitors VDC (the internal voltage of the charger), and if it is too high (meaning the voltage
control circuit has failed), the display will show OL and VDC and both will be flashing “ON and OFF”.
These features will allow for a quick diagnosis of field failures.

FEATURE #6 – When AC power is removed from the charger, the digital meter will display actual battery
voltages. In the normal AUTOMATIC MODE, it will cycle through all functions and display readings. To
check out individual battery voltages, press and release the DISPLAY MODE button to select MANUAL
MODE. Now press the DISPLAY SELECT button until V1, V2 or V3 is displayed and the meter will read
the actual voltage of that battery.

FEATURE #7 – The new 2100 Series Chargers will allow field selection of the proper charging profiles for
Lead Acid, Gel Cell or AGM batteries. All units shipped from the factory will be preset for Lead Acid
Batteries. To change the selected charging profile, press and hold the DISPLAY MODE button. After 5seconds the display will indicate the battery type: LA for Lead Acid Batteries, GEL for Gel Cell Batteries, or
AG for AGM Batteries. Continue to hold the DISPLAY MODE button. Then press and release the DISPLAY
SELECT button once and the system will change to the next profile. Once the proper Battery Type is
displayed, release the DISPLAY MODE button and the new battery profile will be saved.
