2.4.1 Control board connections and settings
The following image shows the control board connections and switch options.
①
Master/slave switch position. This switch must be set to ‘MASTER’ when a single
charger is installed. The ‘SLAVE’ setting is only relevant for parallel charger systems.
②
5 pole screw terminal block. The first three positions are connected to the ‘normally
open’, ‘normally closed’ and ‘common’ contacts of the internal alarm relay. This relay
will be activated when the charger shuts down into an error mode. When the error
condition has been cleared, this relay will de-activate again. Please make sure not to
exceed the maximum relay contact rating of 60V and 5A to avoid damaging the relay
or PCB.
On the 4th and 5th position of the screw terminal, an external switch can be connected
to remotely turn the charger on and off. This switch can be located up to 50 meters
away from the charger. It is advised to use a wire size of 1mm2 (AWG17) for the
remote switch connection. For the remote switch, any single pole switch can be used.
Only a low power signal must be switched on this line.
③
Remote bypass switch position. When a remote switch is connected to the 5 pole
screw terminal block, the remote bypass switch must be set to OFF. When no remote
switch is used, the remote bypass switch must be set to ON.

3. CONFIGURING THE BATTERY CHARGER
3.1
Selecting the correct charge program
The image in chapter 2.4 showed the location of the rotary selector, which is used to select
the desired charge program. The charge program selection depends on the type of battery
that needs to be charged. Each battery type has its own typical bulk and float charge
voltages. When your battery type or optimal charging voltages are still not available in the
standard list, you can select rotary position ‘0’ and setup the battery charger using the
SAMLEX Dashboard for Windows software. This software is included in the optional
SAMLEXLink to USB Communication Kit (art.# 64660), which also contains an isolated
interface box required to connect the Omnicharge to a PC. Using SAMLEX Dashboard, all
available parameters can be edited, and it is also possible to edit or create your own battery
charge programs.
!
CAUTION
Invalid battery type settings can cause serious damage to your batteries and/or connected
battery loads. Always consult your battery’s documentation for the correct charge voltage
settings.

3.2
Charge programs explained
Most standard selectable charge programs, perform a four stage IUoUoP charging process
comprising of a “Bulk” , an “Absorption”, a “Float” and a “Pulse” stage. The image below
visualizes the four stage charging process (for typical 48V voltage values, please multiply the
24V values by 2):
In the Bulk stage, the charger delivers full output current and typically returns approximately
80% of charge back into the battery once the absorption voltage is reached. During this
stage, indicators 3d and 3c (see frontpanel image in chapter 4.1) will be lit depending on the
Bulk charge progress.
When the absorption voltage has been reached, the Absorption stage will be entered and
indicator 3b will be lit. This stage will return the final 20% of charge to the battery. The
output voltage is kept at a constant level and the charge current decreases as a function of
the battery's state of charge. When the charge current has dropped below a certain value or
when the maximum absorption timer has been expired, the Float stage will be entered.
Indicator 3a will be lit and an acoustical message will sound, indicating that the battery is
full. In this stage the battery voltage will be held constant at a safe level for the battery. It
will maintain the battery in optimal condition for as long as the battery remains connected
to the activated charger. Connected battery loads will be directly powered by the charger
up to the charger's maximum output current level. When even more current is drawn, the
battery must supply this which results in a declining battery voltage. At a certain battery
14
voltage level, the charger jumps back to the Bulk stage and will finalize a complete four stage
charging process again, once the battery load consumption has dropped below the charger's
maximum output current level.
The fourth stage called “Pulse”, will perform a short refresh charge of approximately 1 hour
each 7 days while the charger operates in the Float stage. This will keep the battery in
optimal condition while prolonging it's lifetime. The battery can remain connected to the
activated charger continuously, without risk of overcharging.
When the battery temperature sensor is installed, the charger automatically compensates
the charge voltages against battery temperature. This means that the charge voltages are
slightly increased at lower temperatures and decreased at higher temperatures (-30mV/°C
for 12V chargers, -60mV/°C for 24V chargers and -120mV/°C for 48V chargers). This way,
overcharging is prevented which prolongs your battery's lifetime. A connected battery
temperature sensor also enables the battery temperature protection, which stops the
charging process when the battery's temperature is below -20°C or above +50°C.

4. GENERAL OPERATION
4.1
Omnicharge display and control overview
See the next image for an overview of all LED indicators on the Omnicharge frontpanel, as
well as the location of the main switch.
The frontpanel can be divided into four sections :
①
Output current bar. Indicates the percentage of total delivered charging current.
②
Mode indicator. Indicates the operating mode of the battery charger
Indicator mode
Continuous green
Flashing red (1 flash per sec.)
Description
Power on, normal mode
Battery error
A battery error can appear for several reasons. These are :
battery voltage is too low (too deeply discharged) or too
high and battery temperature is too low or too high (only
available when battery temperature sensor is connected).
The charger will not restart automatically in battery error
mode, except when this error was generated due to a too
low battery voltage or a too low battery temperature.
Flashing red (2 flashes per sec.)
High/low AC input voltage

Switch position
“0”
Description
Charger off
When the switch is in position “0”, it does not interrupt
any internal AC or DC sources. This means that there are
still lethal voltages present inside the charger! In position
“0”, the charger will still consume a small amount of AC
current.
“I”
“II”
Charger on in automatic charging mode
Charger on in forced float mode
In this mode, the output voltage of the charger is set
constantly to the float voltage (value is depending on
selected battery type) while being able to deliver full
rated output current. Since no automatic charging
programs are activated in this mode, it can be used for
constant voltage charging or operating the charger as a
battery buffered power supply.
4.2
Charging batteries
!
CAUTION
Before you start to charge batteries, read all enclosed safety instructions and warnings
while following all safety precautions about working with batteries.
The list below globally describes the steps to follow for charging batteries :
1. Push the charger switch in the “O” (Off) position and disconnect the AC supply to the
charger
2. If possible disconnect or switch off all loads from the battery
3. Connect the battery to the charger
4. Switch on the AC supply and activate the charger by pushing the charger switch in the
“I” (power on) position. After a two tone beep, the charger will start the charging proces.
5. After charging is completed, push the charger switch in position “O” and switch off the
AC supply again, before disconnecting the battery. Or, keep all connections and the
charger switch position untouched and just re-connect all battery loads.
17
4.3
Equalizing a flooded battery
If you are using a lead acid battery, an occasional equalization charge cycle may
be recommended by the manufacturer. This might also be true when the battery
has been very deeply discharged or often charged inadequately. During equalization, the
battery will be charged up to approx. 15.5V (31V for 24V and 62V for 48V models) at a
reduced output current level. Before starting an equalization charge cycle, the following
caution statements must be read carefully :
!
CAUTION
Equalization should only be performed on a lead acid battery type that supports this
process. Therefore the Omnicharge only allows equalization when the battery type rotary
selector is set to Flooded, AGM or Lead Calcium. Other battery types like GEL or Lithium will
be damaged by this process. Please be aware that not all AGM and Lead Calcium battery
manufacturers allow an equalization process. Always follow the battery manufacturer's
instructions when equalizing batteries.
During equalization, the battery generates explosive gasses. Follow all the battery safety
precautions enclosed with your Omnicharge. Ventilate the area around the battery
sufficiently and ensure that there are no sources of flames or sparks in the vicinity.
Disconnect all loads connected to the battery during equalization. The voltage applied to
the battery during this process may be above safe levels for some loads.
The Omnicharge cannot automatically determine when to stop the equalization of a
battery. The user must monitor the battery’s specific gravity throughout this process to
determine the end of the equalization cycle. The internal 1 hours time-out timer of your
charger is only intended as a safety feature, but may not be sufficiently short to prevent
battery damage. Therefore, equalizing a battery is always a process that must continuously
be supervised by the user.
As explained earlier, the Omnicharge will only allow equalization when the battery type
rotary selector is set to a battery type that may allow an equalization cycle. Besides this, the
charger also needs to have a full charge cycle completed and must operate in the Float
stage. When these two conditions are met, the equalization charge mode can be activated
by pressing the recessed pushbutton on the bottom side of the unit (see image in chapter
2.4.2) for 3 seconds, until all charge status indicators start flashing.
The Omnicharge battery charger will allow a maximum equalization time of 1 hour before it
automatically jumps back to the Float stage. If the specific gravity of each cell does not
match the battery manufacturer's specifications yet, you can initiate a new 1 hour
equalization cycle by pressing the pushbutton for 3 seconds again. Always keep on checking
the specific gravity of each cell repeatedly during the equalization process. When these
values are correct, you can manually exit the equalization process by pressing the recessed
pushbutton once. The battery charger will then return to the Float stage.
