1 STEP 1 DESULPHATION
Pulsing voltage removes sulphates from the lead plates of the battery restoring the battery capacity.
2 STEP 2 BULK
Charging with maximum current until approximately 80 % battery capacity.
3 STEP 3 ABSORPTION, READY TO USE
Charging with declining current to maximize up to 100 % battery capacity.
4 STEP 4 ANALYSE
Tests if the battery can hold charge. Batteries that cannot hold charge may need to be replaced.
5 STEP 5 FLOAT, FULLY CHARGED
Maintaining the battery voltage at maximum level by providing a constant voltage charge.
6 STEP 6 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.
