1. INTRODUCTION

This switch mode (high frequency) industrial battery charger features advanced charge and termination algorithms designed to optimize both daily battery capacity and overall battery life. The charger is convection cooled with no moving parts, sealed, and designed to provide maximum reliability. The universal AC input enables the charger to be used with a wide range of AC voltages and frequencies, and the charger includes high efficiency and power factor.

The charger was factory-configured with a battery profile intended for use with batteries of the same type, voltage, and number of cells as is listed on the ratings label (see the Charger Ratings Label section for additional details). The charger was also factory-configured for on-board or off-board use. Contact your dealer if you require a different configuration.

2. RECEIVING AND INSTALLING THE CHARGER

WARNING: DO NOT INSTALL THE CHARGER ON OR NEAR FLAMMABLE MATERIALS. POSITION

THE CHARGER ON A FOUNDATION OF STONE, BRICK, CONCRETE OR GROUNDED METAL.

WARNING: CHARGERS CAN IGNITE FLAMMABLE MATERIALS AND VAPORS. DO NOT USE NEAR

FUELS, GRAIN DUST, SOLVENTS, THINNERS, OR OTHER FLAMMABLES.

WARNING: REPLACE WORN, DAMAGED, OR CUT ELECTRICAL CORDS AND PLUGS

IMMEDIATELY.

Unpack the charger and examine it for shipping damage. In the event that shipping damage is found, report it as a claim with the freight company.

Do not operate the charger with a damaged AC or DC cable or connector. Do not operate the charger if it has received a sharp blow, was dropped, or was otherwise damaged in any way. Contact your dealer.

Proper installation is important to achieve optimum performance and life from the charger and batteries.

Allow as much free air space around the charger as possible. Please refer to the Specifications section for specific storage and operating environmental specifications.

The charger was factory-configured for mounting on-board a battery-powered vehicle/machine or off-board use in a shelf or portable application. Contact your dealer if you desire to use the charger in a non-factoryconfigured manner.

The most favorable orientations of the charger are shown in Figure 2-1.

For on-board use, the most favorable way to mount the charger is with the charger base bolted to a metal plate (0.1 inch minimum). This provides both a strong structural mounting and good thermal conductive cooling (examples are shown in Figure 2-1, Views A and B). A poor thermal conductive mounting material such as plastic or wood would be less favorable for cooling.

The charger dimensions and mounting slot locations are shown in Figure 2-2. For off-board use, optional handles are available for ease in carrying.
