APPLICATION NOTE NUMBER 10
INITIAL COMMISSIONING CHARGE FOR NICKEL CADMIUM BATTERIES USING NRG CHARGER
Some nickel cadmium (NiCd) batteries require a high voltage commissioning charge upon installation. Some battery manufacturers, for instance, recommend a commissioning charge of 1.55 volts per cell for 48 hours or 1.65 volts per cell for 24 hours. This required voltage is higher than the normal “boost charge” voltage of the NRG charger, and must be maintained regardless of current demand. This application note describes how to manually set the NRG charger to achieve the high voltages required for NiCd commissioning, how to override the NRG’s automatic release from boost charge voltage, and how to readjust the charger back to factory settings once commissioning is complete.
APPLICATION NOTE NUMBER 16
BEST BATTERY SELECTOR IN ENGINE STARTING APPLICATIONS
This Application Note describes the function and usage of a Best Battery Selector (“BBS”) used in engine starting systems that use two batteries to increase system reliability.
APPLICATION NOTE NUMBER 18
IQ CHARGER ALARM TESTING
This Application Note describes how to test IQ charger alarms to ensure they are working properly. The following procedures force alarm conditions to trigger actual alarms. Testing alarms in this way will not cause any damage to the charger.
APPLICATION NOTE NUMBER 19
NRG TROUBLESHOOTING GUIDE
This Application Note describes how to troubleshoot NRG battery chargers. Each section demonstrates how to troubleshoot a specific alarm.
APPLICATION NOTE NUMBER 23
HOW TO INSTALL A REMOTE TEMPERATURE SENSOR
This Application Note describes when to use and how to connect a remote temperature sensor (RTS) to both the charger and batteries.
APPLICATION NOTE NUMBER 24
ALL ABOUT SIZING CHARGERS FOR ENGINE-START BATTERIES
This Application Note describes how to correctly size battery chargers for engine starting systems for both NiCd and Lead-Acid batteries.
APPLICATION NOTE NUMBER 26
