At the heart of the technology in the XS Power IntelliSUPPLY are the three distinct charging stages and DC power output. During the first stage, called “Bulk” charging, the charger will regulate the current the voltage is allowed to float. During this stage, 80% of the battery’s capacity is restored. When the battery’s cell voltage comes up to the correct level, the second stage called “Absorption” charging is engaged. During this stage the voltage is fixed according to the battery type and voltage switches on the front panel and the current is allowed to float. The battery is brought to 100% during this stage and the cells are equalized. The third stage is float charging. During this stage the voltage and current are reduced to a level that will maintain the battery indefinitely. Several microprocessors are used to tightly control the entire process. This is the same technique that battery manufacturers recommend and use in the production of new batteries and it is the fastest and safest technique for battery charging.
Compatible With All Lead-Acid Type Batteries
Lead-acid batteries have different charging requirements based on their specific design. Flooded and maintenance free batteries require a higher voltage per cell than do sealed valve regulated types such as AGM and gel-cell batteries. Overcharging will reduce the life of any battery as sealed valve regulated batteries are especially sensitive to high charging voltages and overcharging. Some sealed valve regulated batteries are more sensitive to overcharging than others. If in doubt as to which battery setting to use for your application, contact the manufacturer of the battery being charged. Overcharging an AGM or gel-cell battery will cause permanent damage.
Power Supply Mode
Along with charging batteries, the XS Power PSC Chargers can operate as Power Supplies. When this mode is selected, the Charger will maintain a constant output voltage and current. Power Supply mode is to be used for audio display boards and can be used as test bench power supplies. Power Supply Mode should not be used to charge AGM Batteries.
At the end of a battery’s life, or in the event that a battery has sat uncharged for an elongated amount of time, It can become sulfated. This would reduce the capacity and performance of the battery. The PSC Chargers have the ability to recondition a battery that has sulfated. Through a complex charging cycle and microprocessor controlled pulsed output, the PSC charger can break down the sulfated crystals inside the battery which cause the lack in performance. Using this mode on older batteries once every few months is advisable to prolong battery life.
Remote Control/ Display
A remotely mounted display will show the status of the charging functions of the PSC models. This feature will allow the user to control power on/off. The remote will display important charger and battery information such as voltage, charge rate, mode, fault, and status of the battery being charged.
The battery’s terminal voltage is measured every five minutes by the on-board microprocessors and this information is analyzed in addition to the elapsed time to dynamically control the Battery Charger for optimum charging performance. Automatic Computer Analysis/Auto Shutdown The microprocessors will analyze the battery when connected. If the battery’s voltage is below 4V or the battery will not come up to the correct voltage in a ten-hour period the charger will automatically shut off.
UL Approved Battery Cables
Six feet of durable battery cables are provided that are resistant to cuts and abrasion. The copper plated battery clamps are compact and custom designed easy connections. All clamp connections are soldered for maximum current flow.
Internal Cooling Fan
A cooling fan automatically operates during charging to keep the transformer and other internal components at a constant safe temperature.
