Protection provided: Reverse Polarity, Short Circuit, Over-Voltage, Over Current and AC Surge. Soft Start and Stop; Starts and stops gradually. No sudden in-rush of current. This protects both the batteries and any other circuits connected to the charger. JAC0224
Schauer’s Battery Maintainer and Charger transforms the 115/230 VAC into 24 VDC at about 100,000 Hz (1667 times faster than conventional charger), which requires a much smaller transformer and thus results in a unit of smaller size, low weight and improved efficiency. The JAC0224 uses sophisticated electronic circuitry with microchips. All present day computers use switch-mode technology.
Stage 1: Constant Current Mode (CC)
The charger changes to constant current 2A. When the battery voltage reaches to 28.8V, the charging stage changes from (CC) Constant Current to CV (Constant Voltage) mode.
Stage 2: Constant Voltage Mode (CV)
The charger holds the battery at 28.8V and the current slowly reduces. When the current reaches at 0.5 C (C= Battery Capacity), this point called the Switching Point. The Switching Point is one of the great features of this battery charger that it can adjust the current automatically according to the battery capacity. Other chargers without microprocessors are not capable of adjusting the current automatically.
Stage 3: Standby Voltage Mode
The charger maintains the battery voltage at 27.6V and the current slowly reduces to zero. Charger can be left connected indefinitely without harming the battery.
If the battery voltage drops to 27.6V, the charger changes from any mode to Constant Current mode and restarts charging. The charging cycle will go through Stage 1 to Stage 3.
This charger typically ships with alligator clips, the AC cord is detachable so customer may adapt charger to power cords from foreign countries.Not for use with true Gel batteries.Schauer Fully Automatic Constant Current Electronic Charger, charges faster and more accurately than conventional chargers. Charge control is constant current charge to a constant voltage and then to a float standby. The float charge holds the battery at 100% ready state. The charger can be left on indefinitely without worry of undercharge or overcharge.
The Schauer charger can be used world wide; charger automatically accepts and operates on voltage range of 100 to 240 VAC and 50 or 60 Hz. The JAC Series charger will act as a power supply in conjunction with a battery hook up.
