IOTA IQ4 Smart Charger Controller
The IQ4 Charger Controller allows the DLS Series battery charger to operate as an automatic 4-Stage “Smart Charger,” delivering the charge your battery needs at the time it needs it. It uses four different charging modes to keep your battery in peak condition.
4-Stage Charging State Functions
Bulk – The Bulk State charges the battery at the full-rated output of the charger, reducing the time it takes to charge the battery.
Absorption – The Absorption State delivers a constant charge for a set period of time to ensure that the battery receives a full and complete charge.
Float – Once the battery has been fully charged, the Float State maintains a full charge to the battery while minimizing “gassing”.
Equalization – If the battery has remained in the Float State for seven days, the IQ4 automatically provides an equalization charge to dissolve any sulfate layer on the battery’s plates and to avoid stratification.
