****** Page 2 ****** IMPORTANT SAFETY INs-rnucT/0Ns l. PERSONAL PRECAUTIONS: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. Someone should be within range of your voice or close enough to come to your aid when you work near a lead-acid battery. Have plenty of fresh water and soap nearby in case battery acid contacts skin, clothing, or eyes. Wear complete eye and clothing protection. Avoid touching your eyes while working near a battery. If battery acid contacts skin or clothing, wash immediately with soap and water. If battery acid enters the eye, immediately flood eye with cold running water for at least 10 minutes and get medical attention immediately. NEVER smoke or allow a spark or flame in the vicinity of the battery or engine. Be extra cautious to reduce the risk of dropping a metal tool onto the battery. It might spark or short-circuit the battery or other electrical part and cause a fire or an explosion. Remove personal metal items such as rings, bracelets, necklaces, and watches when working with a lead-acid battery. A lead-acid battery, when shorted, can produce a current sufficient to weld a ring or the like metal causing a severe burn. Use the battery charger for charging gel-cell, AGM and flooded lead-acid batteries only. Do not use the charaer for charging dry-cell batteries that are commonly used with home applications. These batteries may burst and cause inu to WARNING RISK OF to Pr0PertY. Working in the vicinity of a lead-acid battery is dangerous. Batteries generate explosive gases during normal battery operation. II. CHARGER PRECAUTIONS: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. NEVER charge a frozen battery. Make sure the cord is located so that it will not be stepped on, tripped over, or otherwise subjected to damage or stress. Do not operate the charger with a damaged cord or plug; replace them immediately. Do not operate the charger if it has received a sharp blow, been dropped, or otherwise damaged. Do not disassemble the charger. Incorrect reassembly may result in a risk of electric shock and fire. To reduce the risk of electric shock, disconnect the charger from the AC source before attempting any maintenance or cleanin LOCATION OF CHAR8ÉR The charger should be mounted on a wall, vehicle floor, ventilated compart- ment or other suitable surface as close to the batteries to be charged as possible. Do not block the char- ger’s fan or air intakes. Do not mount the charger directly over the batteries as fumes may cause exces- Sive corrosion. The area should be well ventilated and free from excessive moisture, exhaust manifolds, and battery fumes. For maximum performance, the charger should not be located in an area of extreme high temperature. The charger is not waterproof. Do not mount the charger where there is a possibility of water entering the unit. Evidence of water entry into the charger will void the warranty. CAUTION: Do not attempt to increase battery bank capacity by splitting the output of one of the banks with a diode-type battery isolator. The diode isolator lowers the charger voltage and results in under- charging the batteries connected to it. If additional capacity is required it is preferable to add another isolated or parallel battery. Ill. GROUND AND AC POWER CORD CONNECTION 1. 2. 3. 4. The charger should be grounded via the AC power connection to reduce the risk of electrical shock. The charger must be plugged into or wired to an outlet that is an over-current protected 3 prong outlet. Alternatively, it may be routed through a separate dedicated fuse or circuit breaker on an AC distribution panel with proper earth/safety ground. All wiring shall comply with UL recommendations, NEC or NFPA standards and local ordinances. Never alter the AC cord or plug if provided. Any modification of the cord must only be done by a qualified electrician. Improper cord/outlet connection may result in a risk of elec- trical shock. Observe color coding of the AC wiring as follows: Black. AC Hot or LINE (fused) White… AC Neutral . AC Ground (safety/earth) CAUTION: 230 VAC applications only): If AC input is provided from a source consisting of two HOT or LINE leads phase-to-phase 230 VAC input voltage); an external fuse or circuit breaker must be used to protect both hot leads. 170 Cherry Avenue West Sayville, NY 11796 kussmaul.com KUSSMAUL ELECTRONICS ENERGIZED AND READY WHEN SECONDS COUNT Ph: 800-346-0857 Fax: 631-567-5826 sales@kussmaul.com

****** Page 3 ****** INTRODUCTION The Auto Charge 1000 with Parasitic Load Compensation (PLC) is a compact, microprocessor controlled, com- pletely automatic, single channel battery charger designed for vehicles with a single battery system. The PLC charger is designed to withstand the shock and vibration encountered by vehicle mounted equipment. FEATURES l. AUTO CHARGE 1000 PLC BATTERY CHARGER Electronic remote sensing of true battery voltage, eliminates the need for sensing wires Automatic current limiting Built-in Battery Saver output Accommodates Lead-Acid, Gelled Electrolyte, AGM and Odyssey@ battery types Configurable for 3-Step or Float Charging Selectable 1, 5 or 10 hour Safety Timer while in 3-Step mode Adjustable Parasitic Load Compensation (0-12 amperes) Power “ON” LED indicator System Status indicator Whisper quiet cooling fan II. CHARGE CONTROLS & ELECTRONIC REMOTE SENSING TheAuto Charge 1000 PLC contains a precision voltage controller to maintain the battery’s charge. Automatic electronic remote sensing measures the true battery voltage, eliminating the need for the additional sense wires. The output current of any charger is inherently a series of pulses whose frequency is determined by the power line frequency. Therefore there are brief intervals during which no charging current flows. During this brief interval, the Auto Charge 1000 PLC measures and stores the battery voltage. This battery voltage is compared to a standard and any error is detected and used to control the charger output at the desired level. There is no “trickle charge”, therefore, no danger of overcharging and water boil-off. Ill. AUTOMATIC CURRENT LIMITING Some battery chargers can be overloaded due to the high charging current required when batteries are severely discharged. The Auto Charge 1000 PLC contains an automatic current limiting circuit. This circuit limits the output current to the rated 15 amperes (18 A with battery saver turned off) when charging a deeply discharged battery or if the starter cranks the engine while charging. The current limiter thus eliminates the need for an ignition interlock circuit. lv. PLC – PARASITIC LOAD COMPENSATION This new feature is designed especially to meet the heavy duty requirements of emergency vehicles. Most emergency vehicles have many parasitic loads on their systems (flash lights, gas detectors, computers, monitoring systems and other items) that can trick a standard 3-step charger into over charging the batteries. Parasitic load compensation allows you to input the total number of parasitic load amps on the vehicle. The charger will then shift the absorption stage set-point so the battery voltage will drop to the float voltage when the desired current is reached. In short the parasitic loads are invisible to the charger. This will lead to a longer battery life and no overcharging or overheating. 170 Cherry Avenue West Sayville, NY 11796 kussmaul.com KUSSMAUL ELECTRONICS ENERGIZED AND READY WHEN SECONDS COUNT Ph: 800-346-0857 Fax: 631-567-5826 sales@kussmaul.com 3

FLOAT 1 3-STEP CHARGE MODE SELECTION SWITCHES Switches 3 and 4 should be set for the desired charging method and 3-step safety timer period. The safety timer period begins when AC power is applied to the charger. The absorption phase of 3-step charging terminates when the safety timer expires, or when the PLC threshold setting is reached. If no PLC settings are set, the threshold is 0.5A. The charger then switches to, and remains in, float mode while AC power is applied. Float Charge Only Both switches down (off) – factory default setting 3-Step with 1 Hour Safety Timer Switch 3 down (off) and Switch 4 up (on) 3-Step with 5 Hour Safety Timer Switch 3 up (on) and Switch 4 down (off) 3-Step with 10 Hour Safety Timer – Both switches up (on) 170 Cherry Avenue West Sayville, NY 11796 kussmaul.com KUSSMAUL ELECTRONICS ENERGIZED AND READY WHEN SECONDS COUNT Ph: 800-346-0857 Fax: 631-567-5826 sales@kussmaul.com 4

****** Page 5 ****** V. BATTERY SAVER AND BATTERY SAVER SWITCH A low ripple, current limited, 3 ampere Battery Saver is built into the charger. When connected as shown in the installation wiring diagram, loads on the battery such as radios and rechargeable hand lights are automatically switched to the Battery Saver when power is applied to the charger. The Battery Saver allows more efficient charging by removing these loads. Switch 5 enables the Battery Saver when set in the up (on) postition. If it is not required, turning the Battery Saver off by setting switch 5 down (off) will enable an additional 3 amperes of charging current (1 8 A). This is the factory default setting. WHEN A BATTERY SAVER OVERLOAD OCCURS: a. Remove the loads for approximately two minutes b. Reduce the load to 3 amperes or less c. Reapply the load to the Battery Saver No fuses are required or provided as the Battery Saver contains an automatic circuit breaker. VI. PARASITIC LOAD COMPENSATION SWITCHES (3-Step mode only) Switches 6, 7 and 8 should be set to match the parasitic load on the battery (excluding any Battery Saver load). These switches control the point at which the charger will terminate the absorbtion phase of the 3-step charging cycle. The possible settings are O, 1, 2, 4, 6, 8, 10 or 12 amperes. If there are no parasitic loads, or if they are all are on the Battery Saver, then set these three switches to the down (off) position. This is the factory default setting. VII. REMOTE BATTERY CHARGE CONDITION INDICATOR (Standard equipment) This remote indicator shows the charge condition of each battery in 10 levels from “LOW CHARGE” to “FULLY CHARGED”. This device indicates a defective battery when the bar graph does not rise to the “FULLY CHARGED” level after an extended period of charging. NOTE: If a battery is being charged with an external load of 1.5 to 4 amperes across its terminals, the bar graph may move down 1 or 2 levels. This does not indicate a defective battery. To avoid this, connect all external loads to the Battery Saver terminals. Loads connected to the Battery Saver will be powered by the Battery Saver power supply when the AC power is “ON”, or they will be connected to the battery when the AC power is “OFF” Optional Deluxe Displays are also available – see optional accessories on page 10. 170 Cherry Avenue West Sayville, NY 11796 kussmaul.com KUSSMAUL ELECTRONICS ENERGIZED AND READY WHEN SECONDS COUNT Ph: 800-346-0857 Fax: 631-567-5826 sales@kussmaul.com
