Adjustable Charging Programs
Characteristic Lines of Charging

The charger uses all charging programs for gentle full charging and after that for conservation of charge of the battery. If a temperature sensor is used, temperature compensation will be additionally executed, which is adapted to the battery type. The simultaneous supply of the connected consumers during charging is dimensioned in such a way, that the supply to the consumers during phase I (initial charging) is restricted to 50 %. If the batteries are fully charged, almost the total charger current is available for the consumers without any discharge of the batteries.

1Gel“: Charging Program for Gel Batteries, Characteristic Line IU1oU2oU3
Adapted to closed, gas-tight gel/dryfit batteries with determined electrolyte, which are generally requiring a higher charging voltage level and longer dwell times U1 to achieve short charging times with particularly high capacity storage and to avoid total discharge. Also recommended for EXIDE MAXXIMA a high-current battery in AGM filament technology.

2„AGM“: Charging Program for AGM/Fleece Batteries, Characteristic Line IU1oU2oU3
Adapted to charging closed, gas-tight AGM (absorbed glass mat) batteries and batteries in lead-fleece technology requiring a particularly high level U1 with adapted dwell times for full charging and after that a moderate level U2 for trickle charge (round cell and plate technology).

3„DIN 0510“: Charging Program for Lead, Acid/Lead-Acid Batteries, Characteristic Line IU1oU2oU3
General characteristic line DIN for charging and conservation to charge of open and closed lead storage batteries with removable cell plugs and possibility of acid level control and acid level correction (maintenance). Also suitable for recently developed, closed battery types (low-antimonous, with lead-silver alloy, calcium etc.) with low and very low water consumption.
Allows short charging times with high level U1, high charging factor and high acid mixing, even during stationary application (acid accumulation) of "wet" drive, lighting, solar, heavy duty and standard batteries.

4„UNIVERSAL“: Charging Program for Lead, Acid/Lead-Acid Batteries: Characteristic Line IU1oU2oU3
Universal program for charging and conservation of charge of acid batteries in vehicles (mixed operation mobile/stationary). Still offers short charging times, good charging factor and good acid mixing with average level U1 for open and closed, low-maintenance, maintenance-free standard, drive, lighting, solar and heavy duty batteries.

5„MOTOR“: Charging Program for Lead, Acid/Lead-Acid Batteries, Characteristic Line IU1oU2oU3
Characteristic line similar to dynamo/generator for mobile application (acid accumulation) with particularly low maintenance (battery gassing, water consumption). Charging and conservation of charge of starter batteries in intervention vehicles, according to a customary suggestion of the Standard Committee Fire Protection (FNFW). For conventional, standard starter batteries, starter batteries being "absolutely maintenance-free", "maintenance-free according to EN", "maintenance-free according to DIN", "maintenance-free", "lowmaintenance".

Li„LiFePO4“: Charging Program for Lithium Batteries, Characteristic Line IU1oU2oU3
Charging program for lithium LiFePO4 batteries with completely integrated electronic system and safety circiut (BMS). Automatic trickle charging of the LiFePO4 battery when the vehicle is stopped (seasonal operation) to maintain a charging state of 50‐80 %, which is advantageous for the battery lifetime. Powers also 12 V consumer loads, such as alarm systems, WLAN etc., as well as the vehicle's starter battery. With periodical automatic activation of the battery cell balancing BMS (Auto Wake Up Function).

6„L“: Closed Acid/Lead-Acid Batteries with Water Consumption
L = low according to DIN EN 50342-1, characteristic line IUoU2oU3

Characteristic line with average level U1 for acid batteries for chargers being installed in the vehicle or external chargers at a permanent location.

7„VL“: Closed Acid/Lead-Acid Batteries with Water Consumption
VL = very low according to DIN EN 50342-1, characteristic line IU1oU2oU3

Characteristic line with high level U1 for acid batteries for chargers being installed in the vehicle or external chargers at a permanent location.

8„Fleece“: Closed Batteries (VRLA) with AGM/Fleece Technology, Characteristic Line IU1oU2oU3
Characteristic line for AGM batteries for chargers being installed in the vehicle or external chargers at a permanent location.

9„Gel“: Closed Batteries (VRLA) with Gel Technology, Characteristic Line IU1oU2oU3
Characteristic line for gel batteries for chargers being installed in the vehicle or external chargers at a permanent location.

10„External“: Without allocation of the battery type, characteristic line IU1oU2oU3
Charging of the vehicle's battery by external charger over vehicle plug in vehicle halls with allocated or free parking lots. Universal program for charging and conservation of charge of acid/gel/AGM batteries.
