3. BATTERY TYPE
This charger contains multiple battery profiles for different battery types (including wet/flooded, AGM, and gel) and capacities of batteries. The charger was factory-configured with t he active battery profile that was requested as part of the original order from Lester Electrical. B efore (1) using the charger for the first time or
(2) using the charger with a battery pack of a different type or capacity, use the ChargerConnect app to verify the proper active battery profile is selected. If the proper battery profile is not available on the charger, the
ChargerConnect app can be used to download the appropriate battery profile from the Cloud. If the battery type you will be charging is not available via the ChargerConnect app Cloud (for example, a specific lithium ion brand or chemistry), contact Lester Electrical for more information. See Section 8 for additional details.
If the active battery profile is changed, mark the charger ratings label or add an additional label or tag.
CAUTION: THIS CHARGER IS FOR US E ONLY WITH BATTERY S YSTEMS OF THE S AME TYP E AS
THE ACTIVE BATTERY PROFILE. BATTERI ES IMP ROP ERLY MATCHED WIT H THE CHARGER MAY
BURST CAUSING P ERS ONAL INJURY AND DAMAGE TO THE BATTERIES OR CHARGER.
Battery manufacturers frequently use the same battery cases for different battery types. Wet/flooded batteries have removable cell caps. Water electrolyzed by discharging and charging the battery is replaced through these openings. Sealed batteries are generally distinguished by non-removable cell c aps. The physical appearance of the battery cas e is frequently the same as a wet battery, though the cell caps are generally not removable. Refer to the battery manufacturer's information panel on the battery case to determine the type battery you have. If the information panel is missing or not legible, do not use the battery.
If you have questions regarding which battery profile to select for use with your particular battery pack, contact your dealer for assistance.
Summit Series II ® 12 of 28
4. OFF-BOARD (SHELF) VERSUS ON-BOARD (BUILT-IN) CHARGERS
This section describes how the charger operates when the charger type is set to Off-board or On-board.
Based on your application, this setting can be changed via the ChargerConnect app under “System Profile”
(see Section 8).
The charger was factory-c onfigured wit h the active battery profile that was requested as part of the original order from Lester Electrical. The charger was also factory-configured for mounting on -board a batterypowered vehicle/machine or for off-board use in a shelf or portable application per the original order from
Lester Electrical. B efore (1) using the charger fo r the first time or (2) using the charger with a battery pack of a different type or capacity, use the ChargerConnect app to verify that the proper active battery profile is selected and that the system settings match your application (see Section 8).
4.1 Off-Board Chargers
Off-board chargers are designed to be used in shelf or portable applications. If t he A C input plug is connected to A C power, a new charge cycle automatically starts when the DC output is connected t o a battery pack of the proper voltage. Disconnecting and reconnecting AC power while the DC output remains connected to a battery pack WILL NOT automatically start a new charge cycle. Disconnecting the DC output from the battery pack IS REQUIRE D to automatically start a new charge cy cle.
4.2 On-Board Chargers
On-board chargers are designed to be mounted on electric vehicles/equipment. If the DC output is connected to a battery pack of the proper voltage, a charge cycle automatically starts when the A C input plug is connected to AC power (unless a safety period of time has not passed since the successful completion of the previous charge cycle). Disconnecting the DC output from the battery pack IS NOT REQUIRE D to automatically start a new charge cycle.
5. AC INPUT
CAUTION: TO REDUCE THE RIS K OF ELECTRIC SHOCK OR FI RE, DISCONNECT AC POWER

The c harger is equipped with an IEC 60320 C16 inlet for t he A C input power as shown. This allows the A C power cordset to be selected with a proper plug compatible with loc al electrical codes. The A C power cordset must be a minimum of 14 AWG (2.0 mm
) for proper operation. An AC cord clamp is also included to retain the A C power cordset IEC 60320 C15 connector. Loos en the screw on the side of the clamp as shown before inserting the C15 connector. Fully insert the connector into the charger inlet and then tighten the AC cord clamp screw to secure the AC power cordset to the charger.
The charger must be grounded to reduce the risk of electric shock and is equipped with an IEC 60320 C16 inlet having an equipment-grounding conductor and a grounding socket. The installed AC power cordset must be plugged into an outlet that is properly installed and grounded in accordance with all applic able electrical codes and ordinances.
If this charger includes the UL Listed symbol on its ratings label, it is provided with a cord set for connection to outlets operating at nominal 120 volts (or 240 volts as appropriate). If the input plug does not fit the power outlet, contact Lester Electrical for the proper cord set terminating in an attachment plug of the proper configuration for the power outlet.
Summit Series II ® 13 of 28

: A battery profile can be assigned for 36V and a different battery profile can be assigned for 24V. The proper battery profile is aut omatically selected based on the connected battery pack. This mode is primarily used when the charger will be charging 36V and 24V nominal battery packs where the battery packs are of different types and/or capacities so using the “Scalable
Profile” mode is not appropriate.
Summit Series II ® 14 of 28
: The nominal DC voltage of the
“Active Battery Profile” is automatically scaled to 36V or 24V based on the connected battery pack.
If the charger is currently se t to “Per Voltage Profiles” or “ Scalable Profile” mode, and you set the “Auto Profile” selection box to “Off”, you MUST ensure that the nominal DC voltage of the “Active
” for the charger matches the nominal DC voltage of the connected battery pack via the
“Battery Profiles” screen in the ChargerConnect app.
When A uto Voltage Mode is active (eit her
“Per Voltage Profiles” or “Scalable Profile”) the ChargerConnect app “Dashboard” screen provides the status of the proprietary algorithm that ex ecutes at the beginning of the charge cycle by displaying the “Auto Battery Voltage Detection” as a status percentage and the “Detected
Battery Pack Voltage”.
6.2 DC Output Cordset
The DC output cordset includes a connector, plug, or terminals. The polarity of the charger DC connector/plug/terminals must be the same as the battery connector/ receptacle/terminals. The BLA CK DC cable must be connected t o the battery negative (-), and t he W HITE or RE D DC cable must be connected to the battery positive (+). The charger will not operate if the polarity is reversed.
WARNI NG: CHARGER DC CORDSET MUST HAVE A MINIMUM OF 10AWG WIRE SI ZE FOR
PROP ER HEAT DISSIPATION. TO PREV ENT RISK OF FI RE, DO NOT US E SMALLER GAUGE WIRE.
The DC cordset attaches to the external DC terminal block on the charger. Remove the to uch proof cover (if pre-installed) to expose the DC terminal block as shown in Figure 6.2 -1. B ased on the DC cordset connector/plug/terminals, use Table 6.2 to det ermine the correct Configuration Number, and then attach the
DC cordset wires as shown in Fig ure 6.2-2. Torque the screws for the battery connections to 18 in -lbs (2.0 Nm) and the lockout and external temperature sense connections to 12 in-lbs (1.35 N-m). Place the strain relief over the DC cordset cable/wires. When individual wires are used for on-board applications, place the foam rubber gasket that comes on the cordset under the strain relief, center the wires, and then tight en the strain relief nuts and torque them to 12 in -lbs (1 N-m). This prevents the wires from getting pinc hed on the side of the strain relief when tightened. Replace the terminal block cover, and torque the cover screws to 9 in-lbs (1 N-m).

7 VEHICLE LOCKOUT CONTROL
The charger lockout/interlock control signal can be interfaced with the vehicle/ equipment to prevent use/movement of t he vehicle while the charger is in use. The lockout control signal, available on Terminal 2 on the DC terminal block (see Figure 6. 2-1), is internally pulled high through a 10k ohm resistor to battery positive (+) when lockout is not active and is pulled low to < 1 Vdc when lockout is active. The lockout control signal is typically interfaced with the vehicle motor speed controller. If you are uncertain of how to interface the lockout control signal with your vehicle, please contact your vehicle dealer.
If the charger is configured for on-board us e, the lockout control signal will be active while AC power is applied to the charger. If the charger is configured for off-board use, the lockout control signal will be active while a valid battery is connected to the charger. Based on your application, you can configure the charger as on-board or off-board via the ChargerConnect app under
“System Profile” (see Section 8).

This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class A digital device, pursuant to part 15 of the FCC and ICES-003 Rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference when the equipment is operated in a commercial environment . This equipment generates, uses and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with t he instruction manual, may cause harmful int erferenc e to radio communications. Operation of this equipment in a residential area is likely to cause harmful interference in which case the user will be required to correct the interference at his own expense.
9. EXTERNAL PORT
The charger has an external port with a sealed DB9 (DE9) connector located near the DC terminal block which is used for the remot e LED and/or CAN communication cable assemblies . When this port is not being used, leave the protective cover over the connector to keep moisture and debris out of the connector.
When mounting the charger on -board a vehicle where the charger LE Ds are not visible, a remote LED cable assembly can be used. Attach the remote LE D cable assembly to the external port on the charger and hand tighten the connector mounting screws. The LE D end of the cable assembly is to be rear mounted t hrough a hole on the vehicle or it c an be attached to a panel which mounts to the vehicle. Install the remot e LED assembly as shown. Remote LED blink patterns are detailed in Section 12.3.
10. PROPER CARE OF DEEP-CYCLE LEAD-ACID MOTIVE POWER BATTERIES
Motive power battery packs are subjected to severe deep -cycle duty on a daily basis. Although these batteries are designed to withstand such duty, the following precautions must be observed to obtain good performance and maximum cycle life.
CAUTION: ALW AYS WEAR PROTECTIVE EYE S HI ELDS AND CLOTHING WHEN WORKI NG WITH
BATTERI ES. BATTERI ES CONTAIN ACIDS WHI CH CAN CAUS E BODILY HARM. DO NOT PUT
WRENCHES OR OTHER METAL OBJECTS ACROSS THE BATTERY TERMI NAL OR BATTERY TOP.
ARCING OR EXPLOSION OF THE BATTERY CAN RES ULT.
1. When installing new batteries, be sure the polarity of eac h battery and the overall battery pack is correct.
Otherwise, battery and/or charger damage can result.
2. New batteries should be given a full charge before their first use bec ause it is difficult to know how long the batteries have been stored.
3. New batteries and older batteries that have been in storage are not capable of their rated output until they have been discharged and charged a number of times. Consult the manufacturer of your ba tteries for more information.
Summit Series II ® 19 of 28
4. DO NOT E XCESS IVELY DISCHA RGE THE BATTERIES. Excessive discharge can cause polarity reversal of individual cells resulting in complete failure shortly thereafter.
5. Maintain the proper electrolyte level of wet (flooded) batteries by adding water when necessary. Distilled or deionized water is best for battery life. Never allow the electrolyte level to fall below the top of the battery plates. Electrolyte levels lower during discharge and rise during charge. Therefore, to pr event the overflow of electrolyte when charging, it is mandatory that water be added to cells AFTER they have been fully charged
– do not overfill. Old batteries require more frequent additions of water than new batteries.
6. Hard crystalline sulfates form when batteries in storage are not maintained in a charged active state.
Internal self discharge can bring about the start of this condition in as little as three days in warm temperatures. B atteries not maintained and allowed to sit in storage will self discharge, sulfat e and lose capacity. Repeated charging wit hout using the batteries between charges can rec over some of the lost power, range, and life, but some permanent loss should be expected.
7. Cold batteries require more time to fully charge. When the temperature falls below 65°F, the batteries should be placed on charge as soon after use as possible.
8. The tops of batteries and battery hold downs must be k ept clean and dry at all times to prevent excessive self discharge and the flow of current between the battery posts and frame. Electrolyte spilled on batteries never dries or evaporates.
9. All connections to batteries must be maintained clean and tight. Due to heating and discharge rates, bolted connections loosen over time. Re-tight en the connections twice yearly to the t orques specified by the battery manufacturers.
10. Follow all operating instructions, cautions, and warnings as specified in this manual, on the charger, in the battery manuals, and in the vehicle manuals.
10.1 Personal Safety Precautions
1. Have someone within the range of your voice and close enough to quickly come to your aid when you work near a lead-acid battery.
2. Ensure that ample fresh water and soap are nearby in case battery acid contacts your skin, clothing, or eyes.
3. Wear complete eye and clothing protection. A void touching your eyes while working near a battery.
4. If battery acid contacts your skin or clothing, wash immediately with soap and water. If acid enters your eye, immediately flush your eye with running cold wate r for at least 10 minutes, and get medical attention immediat ely.
5. NEVER smoke or allow a spark or flame to be in the vicinity of a battery.
6. Be extra cautious to reduce the risk of dropping a metal tool onto a battery. It could spark or short circuit the battery or other electrical components that could cause an explosion.
7. Remove personal metal items such as rings, bracelets, necklaces, and watches when working with a battery. A battery can produce a short-circ uit current that is high enough to cause a severe burn.
8. NEVER charge a frozen battery.

The charger aut omatically terminates the charge cycle when a battery reaches full charge, which is indicated by  the solid illumination of the green LE D or  the green LE D beginning to blink slowly indicating a post-charge phase. The required charge time is affected by numerous factors, including battery amp-hour capacity, depth of discharge, battery temperature, and battery age/us age.
Before operating the vehicle/equipment, disconnect the charger A C power cord from the outlet.
11.3 Storage Mode Operation
Storage Mode is designed to keep your battery maintained during storage periods that last a few weeks to several mont hs at a time.
Depending on the battery type and battery profile selected, a storage charge c an be a continuous float or a periodic charge mode.
Do NOT disconnect the charger from the battery or from the AC power until your machine is needed for use. Disconnecting and reconnecting the charger from the batteries or AC power may start a charge cycle, but disconnection disrupts the storage mode so optimum battery maintenance is not achieved.
After several months of storage your batteries should be serviced and the c harger reset by disc onnecting the DC for Off-Board or the AC for On-B oard applications (disconnect AC for a minimum of 10 minutes) before continuing another storage season.

Disconnecting the charger from the battery always clears a fault. If the charger was factory-c onfigured for onboard use, removing AC power from the charger also clears a fault. If a fault cannot be cleared after taking appropriate corrective action, contact your dealer for troubleshooting and/or service.
The charger was fully tested and calibrated before leaving the factory. It was delivered ready to charge. If properly installed, the charger should require very little attention. If improper charger operation occurs, it will require repair by a qualified service technician (see section 12.1 for information regarding the Fault LED).
CAUTION: DO NOT OP ERATE THE CHARGER IF IT IS DAMAGED OR APPEARS TO BE
MALFUNCTIONING. PERSONAL INJURY OR DAMAGE TO THE CHARGER OR BATTERIES MAY
RESULT. DO NOT DISASS EMBLE THE CHARGER. CONTACT YOUR DEALER. INCORRECT
REASS EMBLY MAY RES ULT IN RIS K OF ELECTRIC S HOCK OR FIRE.
1. If the charger does not turn on, check for one of the following conditions. a. The charger AC power cord is not plugged into a live and/or appropriate A C outlet. b. The battery connections are inc orrect
– battery not connected, reverse polarity, or short circuit. c. The battery voltage is too high. d. The battery voltage is too low (below 10 volts).
2. If the c harger turns off before a battery is fully charged, and a fault condition is not indicated by the Fault
LED, this indicates one of the following conditions. a. The AC power was interrupted during the charge cycle. b. The charger DC out put connector was disconnected from the battery during the charge cycle. c. The battery has been allowed to sulfate. Charge the battery at least once every three (3) days when the equipment is lightly used. Once sulfation is allowed to take place, it may be partially reduced by returning, temporarily, to daily charging.
3. A decrease in vehicle/equipment range where the battery loses power faster indicates one of the following conditions. a. The electrolyte level in a wet lead -acid battery was allowed to drop below the top of the battery plates.
If s o, add distilled water to just cover the top of the plates immediately upon discovery, and then fill to the proper level with distilled water at the completion of the very next charge cycle. b. Use of the vehicle/equipment before the battery has been fully charge d and the charger automatically terminat es the charge cycle. This shortens battery life and accelerates t he onset of reduced daily range. c. The normal wear-out pattern for the battery.
4. A charge cycle running longer than anticipated before terminating indicates one of the following conditions. a. An overly-discharged battery. b. The c harger output may have been reduced due to low A C input voltage, high ambient temperature, or obstructions to cooling airflow. c. The amp-hour capacity of the battery is greater than the charger can fully charge in the anticipated amount of time.
