Battery Charger Timing Cycle (3 Stage Charging)
At switch on the charger is in boost phase where the charger output delivers 6amps constant current until o/p voltage reaches 14.2v. At this level the charger enters EQUALISATION phase.
Charger output remains at 14.2v (constant voltage) for 4 hours. After 4 hours the charger enters FLOAT phase.
Charger output switches to 13.8v (constant voltage) for 20 hours.
Note: Charger performs Equalisation and Float every 24 hours unless the battery voltage falls below 14.2v in Equalisation mode in which case Boost mode will restart.
Battery Drain: When the mains is OFF this unit has a very low battery drain, the figure being only 0.0025 of an amp.
Fan Operation: To ensure silent night time operation the fan switches off at low loads. The fan will start to operate once the load current is in the region of 5amp – 8amp.
Dimensions: Width 250mm x Depth125mm x Height 67mm
Please note: Although the fitting of this item is relatively straight forward if you have any doubts you should consult a qualified person before attempting the installation.
