Tekin BC 200 PEAK DETECTION BATTERY CHARGER WITH PROFLEX CIRCUIT.
Proflex is the name for a battey charging process where the charge current is occasionally intreruppted
momentarily and a short negative current (discharge) pulse is applied to the pack. The short reverse pulse
acts to break up crystal formations in the cell, and help maintain optimum gas and chemical balance. The
result is similar to what happens when you discharge a battery fully and let is rest for a few days.
FEATURES
* Low lewvel output for SCE cells, high level pulses for SCR and repeaking, and proflex conditioning pulses,
all switch selectable.
* Adjustable output current 1-9 amps.
* May be used with a wide variety of power sources: 12-volt battery, 12-volt car battery charger, or a power
supply.
* Timer mode to bring up dead batteries and for repeaking the pack without shutting off.
* Double deck circuit boards maintain compact size, and is easy to bring to track.
CONTROLS
* Indicator Light, large: blinks slowly when both batteries are hooked up and slow charging. Comes on solid
and bright when charger is fast charging.
* Start Button, peak mode: starts the fast charge sequence. This button must be held for 5 seconds to clear
the charger's memory. If the nickle cadmium battery is hooked up backwards, the charger wll slow charge,
but will not fast charge, when this button is pushed.
* Star button, timer mode: Activates the fast charge for a fixed 4 minutes, and then shuts off. Used to put an
initial charge into dead batteries, and to warm cells up when fully charged.
* Indicator Light, small: comes on when the timer mode has been selected. the timer mode continues for 4
minutes unless both batteries are unhooked from the charger momentarily.
* Amps Adjust Knob: Used to set fast charge amps from 1 to 9. Has two scales: 1-4.5 and 2-9 amps,
depending on the position of the cell selector switch. The slow charge current waries with the position of
this pot, too, and is about 1/25 the fast rate.
* Cell Selector Switch: Used to select amp range and cell type when charging. When switch is down you
have 1-4.5 amps, when up you have 2-9 amps.
* Output Jacks: Allow connection of inexpensive external voltmeter to check output voltage and charge rate,
used with Volt/Amps switch. Set the voltmeter to the 20V scale. When measuring voltage read directly.
When measuring amperage multiply the reading on the voltmeter to the 20V scale. When measuring voltage
read directly. When measuring amperage, multiply the reading on the voltmeter by 10 if on the 1-4.5 amp
range, and 20 if on the 2-9 amp range. .30 bolts=3.0 amps if on the SCE setting, and 6.0 amps if on the SCR
setting. In the proflex mode the reading may move around a bit from the reverse pulses.
* Fuse: 15 amp automotive type fuse provides protection against reversed power supply voltage. Always be
careful when hooking up the12-volt power source. Never use a fuse rated higher than 15 amps, or damage
could occur.
