The MXS 3.8 is an advanced microprocessor controlled battery charger with patented Float/Pulse maintenance for use on batteries from 1.2Ah up to 85Ah. The MXS 3.8 solves a broad range of bat-tery problems and is the ideal charger for everyday use. Features of the MXS 3.8 include diagnosis of battery condition to establish if it can receive and retain charge, patented automatic desulphation program and a special ‘Snowﬂake’ mode for optimum charging on cold winter days. Patented Float/Pulse maintenance means the MXS 3.8 is ideal for long-term maintenance. The entire process of battery testing, charging and maintenance is easily followed on the clear LED display.
The MXS 3.8 is a fully automatic ‘connect and forget’ 12V charger with 7 charging steps and oﬀers selectable 0.8A, and 3.8A pro-grams. The ‘Snowﬂake’ mode operates on the 3.8A program.
It oﬀers a wide charging range on all lead-acid battery types from 1.2Ah up to 80Ah with additional maintenance capability to 130Ah. It is splash proof and dust proof (IP65). The MXS 3.8 is easy and safe to use, protects vehicle electronics, is spark-free, reverse polarity protected and short circuit proof. The MXS 3.8 features a 5 year warranty.
1 STEP 1 DESULPHATION
Pulsing voltage removes sulphates from the lead plates of the battery restoring the battery capacity.
2 STEP 2 SOFT START
Tests if the battery can accept charge. Charging begins if the battery is OK
3 STEP 3 BULK
Charging with maximum current until approximately 80 % battery capacity.
4 STEP 4 ABSORPTION, BATTERY READY TO USE
Charging with declining current to maximize up to 100 % battery capacity.
5 STEP 5 ANALYSE
Tests if the battery can hold charge. Batteries that cannot hold charge may need to be replaced.
6 STEP 6 FLOAT, BATTERY FULLY CHARGED
Maintaining the battery voltage at maximum level by providing a constant voltage charge.
7 STEP 7 PULSE, MAINTENANCE CHARGING
Maintaining the battery at 95–100 % capacity. The charger monitors the battery voltage and gives a pulse when necessary to keep the battery fully charged.
