The CH360 range features the new 6-stage Adaptive Charge Profile (ACP) technology from Apuljack Engineering.
This product is form, fit and function compatible with the 18A Open Frame charger that we previously supplied.
The ACP technology adjusts the Equaliser stage to suit the capacity and charge characteristics of the battery connected. The Bulk and Absorption phase times are measured by the charger and the ACP algorithm calculates the optimum equalisation time for that particular charge cycle. This helps to maximise the life of the battery. The unit uses a battery-sense start-up and will only start when a battery voltage of >4V is detected. This is to prevent damaging the unit by attaching it to degraded batteries.
• Stage 1: Soft Start – the charger gently begins charging at a maximum of 8A, this helps to protect very flat or damaged batteries. (RED/GREEN LED FLASH)
• Stage 2: Bulk – Output current limited to 12/18/20A - the charger adds most of the energy into the battery in this phase. (RED LED)
• Stage 3: Absorption – Output held at 14.45V – The final 10-20% of the charge is added to the battery. (RED LED)
• Stage 4: Equaliser – the ACP algorithm – the remaining charge is added and the individual cells are allowed to equalise. (ORANGE LED)
• Stage 5: Float – Output held at 13.7V – Battery full – held at this industry standard level to avoid excessive leakage. (GREEN LED)
• Stage 6: Maintenance – Output boosted to 14.45V – designed to reduce sulphation and top up charge if required. (GREEN LED)
Whilst the ACP determines the overall length of the boost voltage, unlike other chargers which would remain at this voltage if a damaged battery were connected, the CH360 range has an intelligently controlled safety timer. This timer terminates the boost voltage after a 4 or 12 hour period (profile dependant) to protect your battery.
The BLUE LED indicates POWER ON if solid, or OVER TEMPERATURE if flashing, unit should be left to cool before attempt to use.
