9. CHARGER OPERATION

CAUTION: MAKE SURE THE BATTERY IS A RECHARGEABLE DEEP-CYCLE BATTERY WITH THE

PROPER RATED VOLTAGE FOR THIS CHARGER.

DANGER: TO PREVENT ELECTRICAL SHOCK, DO NOT TOUCH UNINSULATED PARTS OF THE

CHARGER DC OUTPUT CONNECTOR, BATTERY CONNECTOR, OR BATTERY TERMINALS. MAKE SURE

ALL ELECTRICAL CONNECTORS ARE IN GOOD WORKING CONDITION. DO NOT USE CONNECTORS

THAT ARE CRACKED, CORRODED OR DO NOT MAKE ADEQUATE ELECTRICAL CONTACT. USE OF A

DAMAGED OR DEFECTIVE CONNECTOR MAY RESULT IN A RISK OF OVERHEATING OR ELECTRIC

SHOCK.

WARNING: CHARGER IS NOT TO BE USED WHILE THE BATTERY POWERED EQUIPMENT IS

OPERATING.

ATTENTION: Ne pas utiliser le charger pendant que I'equipment est en marche.

WARNING: LEAD-ACID BATTERIES GENERATE GASES WHICH CAN BE EXPLOSIVE. TO PREVENT

ARCING OR BURNING NEAR BATTERIES, DO NOT DISCONNECT DC CHARGING CORD FROM

BATTERIES WHEN THE CHARGER IS OPERATING. IF THE CHARGE CYCLE MUST BE INTERRUPTED,

PRESS AND HOLD THE STOP/START BUTTON TO TERMINATE THE CHARGE CYCLE BEFORE

DISCONNECTING THE DC OUTPUT CORD FROM THE BATTERIES. KEEP SPARKS, FLAME, AND

SMOKING MATERIALS AWAY FROM BATTERIES.

WARNING: ALWAYS SHIELD EYES WHEN WORKING NEAR BATTERIES. DO NOT PUT WRENCHES

OR OTHER METAL OBJECTS ACROSS BATTERY TERMINAL OR BATTERY TOP. ARCING OR

EXPLOSION OF THE BATTERY CAN RESULT!

CAUTION: TO AVOID DAMAGE TO THE CHARGER CORD AND BATTERY CONNECTOR,

DISCONNECT BY GRASPING THE PLUG HANDLE OR BODY AND PULLING IT STRAIGHT OUT OF THE

BATTERY CONNECTOR. DO NOT PULL ON THE CHARGER CORD. DO NOT TWIST, ROCK OR PULL THE

PLUG SIDEWAYS.

Legacy Platinum SCR chargers can be ordered and factory configured with highly-customized system settings and battery profiles. The system settings and battery profiles completely define the charging process from start to termination to equalization or balancing. The chargers can also be programmed in the field (see section 9.3.3).

Thus, the typical operation explained below may not apply to a particular unit. Please contact your dealer with questions.

The charger was factory configured to charge wet/flooded or sealed deep-cycle lead-acid batteries. The charger has an “l-E-I” charge profile, which is high-rate constant current (start/bulk phase), constant voltage

(plateau/absorption phase), and low-rate constant current (finish phase). If it is configured for opportunity charging, it will have a specialized “I-E” charge profile for daily cycles and a specialized “I-E-I” charge profile for equalization cycles.

1. With AC power properly applied to the charger, which will be indicated by the solid AC Applied LED, connect the charger DC output connector to the battery connector by firmly grasping both connectors and plugging them straight together. The charger will start automatically after a short delay, which is indicated by the solid Charging LED.

2. A equalize/balance charge cycle is indicated by a blinking Equalizing LED.

3. If the charger must be disconnected from a battery pack while a charge cycle is in progress, press the

Stop/Start button on the user interface to stop the charge cycle before disconnecting the DC output connector from the battery. Do not disconnect the DC output connector from a battery pack while a charge cycle is in progress. The resulting arcing and burning of the connectors could cause the battery to explode.

4. The display(s) can be used to monitor the charge status (see sections 9.2.2 and 9.3).

5. If the charger is configured for multi-voltage charging, approximately 11 minutes after the start of a charge www.douglasbattery.com 15 of 30 User’s Manual
