PROJECTA INTELLI-CHARGE

Automatic 12V 10A 7 Stage Battery Charger

Compact in size but full of features, this small yet powerful charger can be set to suit a range of battery chemistry types, ideal for charging deep cycle batteries used by travellers and work vehicle.

 

FEATURES

7-STAGE AUTOMATIC CHARGING

This is a fully automatic battery charger with 7 charge stages. Automatic charging protects your battery from being overcharged so you can leave the charger connected to the battery indefinitely. 7-stage charging is a very comprehensive and accurate charging technique that gives your battery longer life and better performance compared to using traditional chargers. Projecta’s Intelli-Power chargers can be adjusted to suit a number of different battery types including GEL, AGM, WET and Calcium. The chargers can also help restore drained and sulphated batteries.

The 7 charge stages are:

Desulphation; Soft Start; Bulk; Absorption; Analysis; Recondition and Float.

HATIONAMPS)

Desulphation

The Desulphation stage is designed to break down sulphation occurring in batteries that have been left flat for extended periods of time, returning them back to full charge.

Sulphation occurs when lead-sulphate hardens and clogs up the battery cells.

Soft Start

This is a preliminary charge process that gently introduces power to the battery, protecting the battery and increasing battery life.

Bulk (Constant Current)

The Bulk stage reduces charging time by charging the battery at the maximum rate (constant current) to a set voltage, at which point the battery is approximately 80% charged.

Absorption (Constant Voltage)

The absorption stage charges the battery to 100% by adjusting the charge rate allowing the battery to absorb more power.

Equalisation (Calcium mode only)

Designed especially for calcium batteries, this stage returns calcium batteries to full service by removing acid stratification of the electrolyte.

Analysis

The analysis mode tests the battery to ensure that it has taken the charge; if the battery passes the test the charger will proceed to the float stage, but if the battery fails the test, the charger will apply a recondition charge to try to return the battery to full charge.

Recondition

If after charging, the battery is unable to hold the charge the battery reconditioning function is initiated automatically. This is most likely to take place on batteries that have been deeply discharged, prior to charging. The Recondition mode will then run for 4 hours and at the end will retest the battery. The Intelli-Power battery charger will perform the recondition charge up to 3 times before switching the charging cycle to Float with an error indication.

Float

The Float stage maintains the battery at 100% charge without overcharging or damaging the battery. This means the charger can be left connected to the battery indefinitely.

 

MULTI CHEMISTRY

The Multi-Chem function allows you to set the charging profile to suit each battery’s chemistry type (GEL, AGM, WET and Calcium). This ensures correct and thorough charging and maximises battery performance and battery life.

POWER SUPPLY

When Power Supply mode is selected, you can safely run an appliance or load from your battery. An appliance can also be run directly from the battery clamps if required, for example using the charger as a memory saver when disconnecting the battery from the vehicle.

CHARGE STATUS INDICATOR

The CHARGING and FULLY CHARGED LEDs will illuminate and flash in various patterns to indicate the different stages of charging. See below for flash patterns.

CHARGING LED: blue LED illuminates and flashes during charging process.

FULLY CHARGED LED: green LED illuminates (solid) when fully charged.

POLARITY PROTECTION

Prevents the output leads from sparking due to accidental reverse connection or short circuit making the charger safer to use around batteries.

OVER TEMPERATURE PROTECTION

If the temperature within the charger rises too high, the charger will begin to cool down by turning on the fan, and if the temperature continues to rise it will begin reducing the power output. If still unsuccessful, the charger will shutdown until it cools down.

SWITCHMODE TECHNOLOGY

Using the latest technology in battery chargers, switchmode chargers convert 240VAC power to 12VDC power using electronic components unlike traditional battery chargers that rely on heavy transformers. This allows the charger to be lightweight and compact without sacrificing on performance.

COOLING FAN

The charger is fitted with a thermostatically controlled fan to cool onboard electronics and maintain charging performance. The cooling fan will engage automatically when there is a high load on the battery or there is sufficient heat build up.
