Introduction

1.1

Scope of the Manual


This instruction manual explains the installation, interconnection, and operation of Alpha Technologies Cordex
125-4.4kW modular switched mode rectifiers.

NOTE: To aid the user with installation, frequent reference is made to drawings located at the rear of the manual.

1.2

Product Overview
A complete Cordex rectifier system consists of one or more power modules in a common shelf enclosure. The
shelf has connections for AC inputs, DC output, and system communications.
Cordex rectifier modules use a high frequency, switched mode conversion technique to provide a fully regulated
and isolated DC output from the AC mains. The rectifier input is wide range to allow use on 208/220/240Vac
50/60Hz electrical service.
Rectifier power modules are hot swappable meaning they can be inserted or removed from the shelf without
cutting power to or from the system or the load.
Additional power modules can be included with the system at the time of ordering or added after the shelf has
been installed.
The shelf rectifier system is designed to operate with the Alpha Cordex System Controller (CXC).
The CXC allows the user to configure, monitor and control the entire DC power system from its touch screen
display similar to that used in a Personal Digital Assistant (PDA). Other features of the unit include temperature
compensation, auto equalization, remote access, dial out on alarm, battery diagnostics, as well as Web server
and Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) support for configuration and monitoring.
Details of controller operation are provided in the current version software manual.
There are two external CXC models of the system controller that communicate with the shelf via offset RJ-12
shelf connectors. The CXCR is mounted in a rack and the CXCP is (factory) mounted in a panel.
See manual #018-570-B2.

Rectifier Features

2.1

Front Panel

LEDs

Thumbscrew

Figure 1Cordex 125-4.4kW rectifier front panel


2.1.1

LEDs
The front panel LEDs provide:

Rectifier status summary,


Rectifier software upgrade in progress indication,
Locate module pattern.

Rectifier status summary will show the rectifier alarm status, communication fail status and rectifier on/off status.
2.1.1.1

AC ON
The top LED (green) is on when AC is within valid range. The LED will flash (~2Hz) when AC is
outside the nominal range AC voltage is invalid if the AC Mains Low or AC Mains High
alarm is active. The LED turns off when AC has failed.

2.1.1.2

DC ON
The middle LED (green) is on when the rectifier is delivering power to the load. The LED will
flash when communication is lost. The LED turns off when the rectifier is off; e.g., when
commanded via the CXC.

2.1.1.3

ALARM
The bottom LED (red) is on continuously in the event of an active Module Fail alarm; if the
module is unable to source power as a result of any of the following conditions:
Output fuse blown
High voltage (OVP) shutdown
UPF fail

AC Mains Input Fail


Thermal shutdown
No output power

Module fail (ramp test fail)


Local shutdown
Fan (1 and 2) fail.

The LED will flash (~2Hz) when a minor alarm is detected; if the modules output capability has
been reduced or a minor component failure is detected during the following conditions:
VAC meter fail
Fan (1 or 2) fail
Current limit (programmable option)
Temperature sense fail

010-589-B2 Rev B

AC foldback
Low output voltage
Power limit (programmable option)
Soft start operation

Remote equalize
High output voltage
High temperature foldback
Communications lost.

Page 2 of 19

The LED remains off in the absence of an alarm. If the unit output is not connected to a battery
or parallel rectifier, the LED will extinguish if no AC power is present.
2.1.1.4

LED Activity During Software Upload


When a rectifier software upload is in progress, the LEDs will behave in a distinctly different way
to indicate new rectifier software is being transferred from the CXC.
When a rectifier data transfer is in progress, all three LEDs will flash in a sequence lasting 1.5
seconds. When the last LED is lit, the sequence is repeated beginning at the first LED.

2.1.1.5

LED Activity During Locate Module Command from CXC


When the locate module command has been received from the CXC, the LEDs will behave in
another distinct fashion so that the rectifier is easier to visually identify among adjacent
rectifiers.
This state is entered when commanded via the CXC. The LEDs will flash in a ping-pong pattern
repeating every 2 seconds.
The ping-pong pattern lights each LED sequentially. After the last LED is lit, each LED is lit in
reverse sequence. When the first LED is lit, the pattern repeats. The effect makes it appear as if
the light is bouncing between the first and last LED.

2.1.2

Mechanical
A thumbscrew is provided to secure the rectifier into the shelf. During normal operation the rectifier shall be
locked into position. A handle (or grip) is incorporated into the front panel to facilitate the removal of the rectifier
from the shelf. No special tools are required.

2.2

Rear Panel
Located on the rear panel of the rectifier is a single connector for shelf power and communications.

2.3

True Module Fail Alarm


The power modules have a true fail alarm. This provides a true indication of the power modules ability to source
current. When the modules output current drops below 2.5% of the rated output a low output current condition is
detected and the Module Fail detection circuit is activated. This circuit momentarily ramps up the output voltage to
determine if the module will source current. If no increase in current is detected, the Module Fail alarm is
activated. The module will test once every 60 seconds for the condition until current is detected. Output voltage
ramping will cease upon detection of current 1. A minimum 2.5% load is required to avoid the Ramp Test Fail
alarm; this can typically be provided with the parallel system battery. Activation of this alarm could indicate a failed
module or a failed load.

NOTE: For Cordex rectifier systems without batteries (or with a very light load; below 2.5% of rated output) it is
recommended that the ramp test be disabled to avoid nuisance alarms. The Ramp Test feature is
enabled/disabled via the CXC menu item: Rectifiers, Configure Settings.

2.4

Heat Dissipation
Each rectifier module is equipped with at least one front-mounted fan. The fan operates at temperatures above
0C (32F). Cooling of the module is front-to-rear with the exhaust air exiting at the back. The fan is variable
speed; which is determined by heatsink temperature and load.

Under normal conditions, a battery connected to the output of the rectifier will draw current when the voltage ramp occurs. Therefore the rectifier fail
alarm will not be generated with a battery connected.

010-589-B2 Rev B

Page 3 of 19

2.5

Over Temperature Protection


Each rectifier module is protected in the event of an excessive increase in temperature due to component failure
or cooling airflow blockage. During over temperature conditions, the rectifier limits the output power as well as the
output current. If temperature continues to increase, a shutdown of the rectifier is initiated. The rectifier shall
restart automatically if the temperature has returned to a safe level.

2.6

Wide AC Range
A minor alarm is generated when the AC input voltage drops below specification. Rectifier output power is
reduced linearly between 187Vac and 90Vac to 40% of the rated output power (the unit will deliver derated output
power down to 80Vac).
At 80Vac, the module will shut down and will not restart until the AC is greater than or equal to 90Vac; however,
the restart voltage depends on the load current. At reduced load current the unit may restart with the input voltage
as low as 100Vac.
For voltages above 265Vac, power factor and total harmonic distortion may be derated. Up to 312Vac, the
rectifier will be operational and shall not suffer any damage.

2.7

AC Inrush/Transient Suppression
The inrush current of the rectifier module is limited to the full load steady state line current to prevent surge on the
AC line. Modules are also protected from input lightning and transient surges in accordance with IEEE/ANSI
C62.41 Category B3.

2.8

Soft Start
To eliminate an instantaneous demand on the AC source, a soft start feature is employed. Soft Start, sometimes
referred to as current walk-in, works by gradually (up to five seconds) ramping the current limit up from zero to
the actual or defined customer setting. The rectifier output voltage is ramped up from the minimum voltage to the
float voltage.

2.9

Start Delay
The rectifier modules are equipped with a delay timer in order to stagger start a series of modules to prevent
excessive loading of generators upon start up. The built-in timer delays the turn on of the module depending on
the value selected (up to 120 seconds) via the CXC. A minimum one-second delay is preset to allow charging of
the input capacitors.

2.10

Current Limit/Short Circuit Protection


The current limit function determines the maximum output current limit of the rectifier module, regardless of output
voltage or power. Maximum output current is limited to a constant value down to short circuit condition. Current
limiting can be used to mate the rectifier output current ampacity to the needs of the load and parallel battery to
minimize excessive battery recharge current.
The rectifier will sustain a short circuit at the output terminals indefinitely. The maximum short circuit current shall
not exceed 105% of the rated full load current.

2.11

Power Limiting
Each rectifier module is designed to limit power output to the module specification. This enables more current to
be supplied at lower output voltages, and allows matching of output to the demand of constant power loads,
normally seen with telecom equipment.
This feature may also be used for a faster recharge of flooded batteries paralleled with the load.

NOTE: Current limiting overrides the power-limiting feature.

010-589-B2 Rev B

2.12

High Voltage Shutdown (HVSD)


This feature provides protection to the load from over voltage conditions originating from the rectifiers. It operates
by shutting down the offending rectifier module when a high output voltage condition occurs. Indication is through
the red Alarm (Module Fail) LED. Modules will restart automatically; however, if more than three over voltage
conditions occur in one minute, the module will latch off and remain shut down until it is reset via the CXC.

2.13

Battery Eliminator Operation


Rectifier modules maintain all specifications (except where indicated) with or without a battery attached in parallel
to the output; however, if a battery or another module supplying DC voltage in parallel is not present, there will be
no monitoring or control activity if there is an AC power failure or input fuse failure.

Installation
WARNING
This product must be installed in a restricted access location. Only qualified or trained personnel
are allowed access to the equipment. Failure to do so may result in electric shock.
This chapter is provided for qualified personnel to install the product, which shall be mounted in a clean and dry
environment.

NOTE: To aid the user with installation, frequent reference is made to drawings located at the rear of the manual.

4.1

Safety Precautions
WARNING
Hazardous voltages are present at the input of power systems. The DC output from the rectifiers
is classified as hazardous voltage and has a high short circuit current capacity that may cause
severe burns and electrical arcing.
Before working with any live battery or power system/distribution center, the following precautions should be
followed:

Remove all metallic jewelry; e.g., watches, rings, eyeglasses, necklaces.


Wear safety glasses with side shields at all times during installation.

Metallic tools must be insulated.


The installer should follow all applicable local rules and regulations for electrical and battery installations; e.g.,
CSA, UL, CEC, NEC, OSHA, and local fire codes.

4.2

Shelf Preparation/Mounting
The 19" shelf has been designed for flush mounting in a standard 19" relay rack. Universal mounting brackets
allow for mid-mounting in a 19" or 23" rack. The configuration depends on the options chosen.
See drawing 030-769-06.

NOTE: The shelf shall be mounted in a clean and dry environment. Allow at least 1.75" of free space in front of the unit
for unrestricted cooling airflow.
Mounting brackets accommodate either 1" or 1-3/4" rack spacing. The shelf should be mounted to the rack using
at least two #12 24 x 1/2" screws in each bracket. Philips-type screws and screwdriver should be used to
eliminate the possibility of slippage and scratching of the units exterior. Washers (such as internal tooth) or
special screws that are designed to cut through the painted surface should be used to ensure a good chassis
ground.

4.3

Rectifier Module Insertion/Removal


Insert by placing the rectifier module on the shelf bottom and sliding the module into the rear connector (inside of
the shelf). Apply pressure on the module handle to engage the rear connector in the shelf receptacle.

NOTE: It is recommended that the first module be inserted into the front leftmost position using the side of the shelf as a
guide. Subsequent modules may be inserted using the previous module as a guide.
Tighten the screw on the bottom of the faceplate to secure the module to the shelf.
NOTE: Do not force a module into position if it does not seat properly. All modules are keyed to ensure that the correct
module (voltage/polarity) type is used.
To remove a module, loosen the screw on the bottom of the faceplate. Grasp handle and pull out, sliding the
module away from the rear connector and out of the shelf.

Wiring and Connections


This chapter provides cabling details and notes on cable sizing for DC applications with respect to the Alpha
Cordex 125-4.4kW modular switched mode rectifier.

5.1

Safety Precautions
WARNING
Hazardous AC voltages may be present. Ensure power at the AC service panel is off before
attempting work on the AC connections. Use a voltmeter to verify the absence of voltage. Clearly
mark the correct polarity of the battery leads before commencing work on DC connections.
Refer to the previous (Installation) chapter for additional safety precautions.

5.2

Tools Required
Various tools are essential for product installation. Use this list as a guide:

5.3

Slot head screwdrivers (blade sizes: 1/4", 1/8", 1/16")


Philips head screwdriver, #2 (tip size 3/16")
Digital voltmeter equipped with test leads
Adjustable 125/220Vdc load (optional)
Cutters and wire strippers
Crimping tool (optional for large gauge wire)
Socket and rachet set (Imperial measure).

Power System Chassis Ground and DC Ground Reference


WARNING
For safety reasons, ensure the system is properly bonded to the buildings ground grid.
125/220Vdc systems are typically floating; i.e., not connected to earth ground.
Connect the chassis ground to the site ground to ensure correct operation of the system and to prevent drifting
floating analog (especially current) readings.

5.4

AC Feeder Protection/Sizing
To maximize system reliability, each power module should be fed from a dedicated protection feeder breaker
located at the AC distribution panel. The feeder breaker can also act as the disconnect device for the connected
module. Refer to the specifications at the front of this manual for Alpha recommendations.

5.5

AC Input Connections
WARNING
Use care when removing or replacing the covers for the AC input connections. Never assume that
an electrical connection or conductor is not energized.
CAUTION: AC input wires should be routed in flexible or rigid conduit as far away as possible
from the DC power wires to minimize EMI disturbances.
Ensure all modules are removed from the shelf.
The wireway is designed for two customer-supplied 1 conduit fittings for AC supply located one on each side of
the shelf.
Remove the metal covers (2 places) from the rear of the shelf to expose the AC input terminal blocks, L1 and L2
for each rectifier. Each terminal pair relates to an individual power module as marked.
Attach the conduit retainers to the wireway hole(s) and route the AC cables through.
Secure the wires to the AC input and chassis ground terminals as required.

010-589-B2 Rev B

Page 8 of 19

Tighten the cable connector to the AC cable (conduit similar).


Replace rear cover(s) once all connections have been completed.

5.6

Calculating Output Wire Size Requirements


Wire size is calculated by first determining the appropriate maximum voltage drop requirement. Using the formula
below calculate the CMA wire size requirement. Determine the size and number of conductors required to satisfy
the CMA requirement.
CMA = (A x LF x K) / AVD, where:
CMA = Cross section of wire in circular MIL area
A = Ultimate drain in amps
LF = Conductor loop feet
K = 11.1 constant factor for commercial (TW type) copper wire
AVD = Allowable voltage drop
Check again that the ampacity rating of the cable meets the requirement for the installation application. Consult
local electrical codes (NEC, CEC, etc.) for guidelines. If required, increase the size of the cable to meet the code.

5.7

DC Output Connections
WARNING
Leave cables or bus bars disconnected at battery and verify output polarity using a voltmeter.
Make battery connections only after all other wiring is completed.
DC output wire shall be UL approved XHHW or RHH/RHW (for Canadian users, RW90 Type). Control and sense
wires shall be UL approved Style 1015 (for Canadian users, TEW type).

5.7.1

Cable
Terminate cable leads with appropriate crimp lugs for 3/8" holes on 1" centers.
Secure the positive and negative to the shelf output post of the correct polarity; i.e., +Vcable to +Vpost. Ensure
the washers are on the bolts in the same order in which they were shipped from the factory. Tighten the bolts as
per Customer Connections drawing at the rear of this manual.

5.7.2

Bus Bar
Bus bar adapters may be factory-installed, for the option selected, to easily accommodate direct connections to
customers vertical bus bars.
Secure the positive and negative to the shelf output post of the correct polarity; i.e., +Vcable to +Vpost. Ensure
the washers are on the bolts in the same order in which they were shipped from the factory. Tighten the bolts as
per Customer Connections drawing at the rear of this manual.

5.8

CAN Serial Ports


Two CAN Serial ports (modular jacks with offset latches), are provided for communications with Alphas Cordex
rectifiers and other CAN-enabled equipment. These are located on the left side of the shelf (as viewed from the
front).
Daisy-chain from shelf to shelf (CAN OUT of one shelf to CAN IN of another) as necessary and ensure that only
the last shelf is terminated. See Figure 2.

5.8.1

CAN Termination
A jumper (or switch depending on your configuration) allows setting of the CAN OUT to be open (to the next shelf
in the system) or terminated. Termination must be enabled in final shelf on the CAN bus only. Access termination
selection (inside the shelf) by removing the leftmost rectifier #1 (MDL 1).

Operation

6.1

Main Rectifier States


Rectifier operation can be broken up into five main states:
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.

Off,
Start delay,
Soft start,
Normal operation,
Turning off.

Each state is characterized as being distinct and necessary for the operation of the rectifier. These states are
briefly described below.
6.1.1

Off State
The rectifier will be in the Off state immediately after power is applied to the rectifier or after a rectifier shutdown.
The shutdown source may be remote or local shutdown, AC shutdown, OVP or thermal shutdown.
When the rectifier is in this state the DC-DC converter is turned off and the CXC will be monitoring its inputs for
the proper conditions to begin the start up sequence.
When the conditions have been met for the rectifier to start up, it will transition to the Start Delay state.

6.1.2

Start Delay State


When the rectifier is in the Start Delay state, the DC-DC converter is held off and still not sourcing power and is
waiting for a given amount of time before transitioning to the next state.
When in this state, the CXC continues to monitor its inputs.
After the Start Delay state the rectifier will transition to the Soft Start state.

NOTE: Soft start, or current walk-in, gradually increases the voltage and current output of the rectifier upon startup. This
is done to reduce the instantaneous load on the AC source.
6.1.3

Soft Start State


When the Soft Start state is entered, the rectifier will be turned on and the output voltage and output current will
be gradually increased. If a load is present, the rectifier will begin to source power.
When the voltage and current limit ramps have finished, the rectifier will transition to the Normal Operation state.

6.1.4

Normal Operation State


The Normal Operation state is the state that the rectifier will be in performing all of the rectifier functions and
features specified herein.
From this state, the only valid transition is to the Turning Off state. This transition will happen if the rectifier is
required to shutdown.

6.1.5

Turning Off State


The Turning Off state is entered because a short delay is required before the rectifier actually turns off to take
care of any initialization requirements.
When this short delay has elapsed, a transition to the Off state is made.

010-589-B2 Rev B

Page 11 of 19

6.2

Main Rectifier Modes


In addition to Main Rectifier States, there is a set of Main Rectifier Modes. These modes can be divided into two
categories as follows:

6.2.1

Output Voltage Modes


Voltage modes can be thought of as modes that, under software control, can directly adjust the output voltage.
The qualification of under software control is made because there are processes that occur in the rectifier that
can change the output voltage that do not adjust the output voltage directly (such as the rectifier being in current
limit).
The following table lists the five Output Voltage Modes and a description of when they are active:
Output Voltage Modes

Active when

Float

Output voltage is set to the float voltage setting.

Equalize

Output voltage is set to the equalize voltage setting.

Battery Test

Output voltage is set to the battery test voltage setting.

Safe

Output voltage is set to the safe mode voltage setting.

Manual Test

Output voltage can be manually adjusted outside of the standard adjustment ranges.

6.2.2

Output Current/Power Modes


These modes directly affect the output current and power.
The following table lists the four Output Current/Power Modes and a description of when they are active:
Output Current/Power Mode

Active when

Temperature foldback mode

Output current and power limit have been reduced due to high temperature of the
heatsink or internal ambient temperature sensor.

AC foldback mode

Output current and power limit have been reduced due to low AC input voltage. Note:
this will reduce the risk of tripping an AC breaker due to increased AC current draw as
the AC voltage decreases.

Short circuit foldback mode

Output current limit has been reduced due to a short circuit at the output.

Internal fault foldback mode

Output current limit has been reduced due to an internal fault.

Table BOutput current/power modes

Can Bus Communications


The CAN bus is used for communication between the rectifier and CXC.
The communication between the rectifier and CXC consists of commands and data transfer that are used during
the operation of the power system to configure the rectifier with system settings and to monitor rectifier status.

System Startup
After completing the shelf wiring and installation, perform the following startup and test procedure to ensure
proper operation:

7.1

Check System Connections

7.2

Verify AC and Power the Shelf

7.3

Install one power module.


Verify AC input voltage is correct and turn on the corresponding AC input feeder breaker.
The power module OK LED should illuminate after a preset start delay.
Using the CXC, test functionality of various module alarms and controls.

Check Battery Polarity and Connect

7.4

Ensure AC is off, battery is disconnected, and all power modules are removed from the shelf.
Triple check the polarity of all connections.

Verify correct battery polarity using a voltmeter (ensuring no cells or batteries are reversed).
Connect battery as required to the output of the system or turn on battery breaker.

CSA/NRTL MARKS BACKGROUND


What are the CSA and NRTL?

CSA (Canadian Standards Association also known as CSA International) was established in 1919 as
an independent testing laboratory in Canada. CSA received its recognition as an NRTL (Nationally
Recognized Testing Laboratory) in 1992 from OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) in
the United States of America (Docket No. NRTL-2-92). This was expanded and renewed in 1997, 1999,
and 2001. The specific notifications were posted on OSHAs official website as follows:


Federal Register #: 59:40602 - 40609 [08/09/1994]


Federal Register #: 64:60240 - 60241 [11/04/1999]
Federal Register #: 66:35271 - 35278 [07/03/2001]

The product on which either of these marks appear


has been certified by CSA as meeting applicable
Canada/US standards.

When these marks appear with the indicator C and US or NRTL/C it means that the product is
certified for both the US and Canadian markets, to the applicable US and Canadian standards. (1)
Alpha rectifier and power system products, bearing the aforementioned CSA marks, are
certified to CSA C22.2 No. 60950 and UL 60950.
Alpha UPS products, bearing the aforementioned CSA marks, are certified to CSA C22.2
No.107.3 and UL 1778.
As part of the reciprocal, US/Canada agreement regarding testing laboratories, the Standards Council
of Canada (Canadas national accreditation body) granted Underwriters Laboratories (UL) authority to
certify products for sale in Canada. (2)

The product on which this mark


appears has been certified by UL
as meeting applicable Canada/US
standards.

Only Underwriters Laboratories may grant a licence for the use of this mark, which indicates compliance
with both Canadian and US requirements. (3)

What are NRTLs and what do they do?

NRTLs are third party organizations recognized by OSHA, US Department of Labor, under the NRTL
program.
The testing and certifications are based on product safety standards developed by US based standards
developing organizations and are often issued by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI). (4)
The NRTL determines that a product meets the requirements of an appropriate consensus-based
product safety standard either by successfully testing the product itself, or by verifying that a contract
laboratory has done so, and the NRTL certifies that the product meets the requirements of the product
safety standard. (4)

When was the NRTL started and who governs it?

In 1983, in a suit brought on by an independent testing laboratory, OSHA was court ordered to remove
specific references to UL (Underwriters Laboratories) and FMRC (Factory Mutual Research Corporation)
from its regulations.
In 1988, OSHA revised its regulations to remove those references and the NRTL program was
established.
The NRTL Program is both national and international in scope with foreign labs permitted.

Important
Please read this manual immediately on receipt of battery before unpacking and installing. Failure to comply with these instructions will render any warranties null and void.

Care for your safety


No smoking, no naked flames,
no sparks

Shield eyes

Electrical hazard

Danger

Electrolyte is corrosive

Clean all acid splash in eyes or on skin


with plenty of clean water.
Then seek medical help.
Acid on clothing is to be washed with
water

Re-cycle scrap batteries.


Contains lead

Warning: Risk of fire, explosion, or burns.


Do not disassemble, heat above 60C, or
incinerate. Avoid any short circuit. Metallic
parts under voltage on the battery, do not
place tools or items on top of the battery

Handling

Keep flames away

Tools

PowerSafe V batteries are supplied in a fully charged


state and must be unpacked carefully to avoid very high
short-circuit currents between terminals of opposite
polarity. Use lifting hooks compatible with the plastic
handles on the cell/monobloc.

In case of accidental overcharge a flammable gas can


leak off the safety vent.

Use tools with insulated handles.

Discharge any possible static electricity from clothes by


touching an earth connected part.

Remove rings, wristwatch and articles of clothing with


metal parts that may come into contact with the battery
terminals.

Unpacking
It is advisable to unpack all the cells or monoblocs and accessories before
commencing to erect and not to unpack and erect cell by cell.
All cells/units should be handled carefully, as the plastic container can be
damaged or broken if allowed to fall. Under no circumstances should they be lifted
by their terminal pillars.
All items should be carefully checked against the accompanying advice notes to
ascertain if any are missing and also inspected to see whether any are damaged
or broken. Should this happen the Sales Department should be consulted.
Transit insulation covers are fitted to one pole or a one rigid plastic insulating
cover is provided which totally protects the unit terminals. These are factory fitted
to all products of the range and there is no need to remove them until access to
the terminals is required.

Storage
Store the batteries in a dry, clean and preferably cool location.
As the batteries are supplied charged, storage time is limited. In order to easily
charge the batteries after prolonged storage, it is advised not to store batteries for
more than:
6 months at 20C
3 months at 30C
1.5 month at 40C
A refreshing charge shall be performed after this time at 2.27-2.30Vpc at 20C for
48 to 96 hours. A current limit is not essential, but for optimum charge efficiency
the current output of the charger can be limited to 10% of the 3 hour capacity
rating. The necessity of a refreshing charge can also be determined by measuring
the open circuit voltage of a stored battery. Refreshing charge is advised if the
voltage drops below 2.10Vpc. Failure to observe these conditions may result in
greatly reduced capacity and service life.

Read instructions

Do not place or drop metal objects on the battery.

Temperature
Avoid placing the battery in a hot place or in front of a window. The battery will
give the best performance and service life when working at a temperature
between 20C and 25C. The usual operating temperature is between -10C and
+45C. Limits are comprised between -30C and +45C.

Ventilation
Under normal conditions gas release is very low and natural ventilation is
sufficient for cooling purposes and inadvertent overcharge, enabling
PowerSafe V batteries to be used safely in offices and with main equipment.
However care must be taken to ensure adequate ventilation when placed in
cabinets. Batteries must not be placed in close cabinets.

Mounting
Enersys battery racks or cabinets are recommended when installing the cells.
Assemble the rack according to instructions. Place the battery blocks or cells
on the rack and arrange the positive and the negative terminals for connection
according to the wiring diagram. Check that all contact surfaces are clean and
apply the block or cell connectors and the terminal screws. Tighten the screws
securely. Finally connect the battery terminals. It is important that the battery is
mounted firmly.

Torque
Tighten the nuts or bolts to the recommended levels of fastening torque as
specified on the product label. A loose connector can cause problems in
charger adjustment, erratic battery performance, possible damage to the
battery and/or personal injury. Finally fix the connector covers.

Cell strings connected in parallel

Installation

Using constant voltage chargers and ensuring that the connections made
between the charger and the batteries have the same electrical resistance, no
special arrangements have to be made for batteries in parallel.

Install batteries in a clean and dry area. PowerSafe V battery products release
minimal amounts of gas during normal operation (gas recombination efficiency
95%). Batteries must be installed in accordance with national standards (for
instance EN 50272-2), otherwise in accordance with the manufacturers
instructions.

Although no special circuit arrangements are required, where the parallel


connection is made at the charger or distribution board, to avoid out of step
conditions, the bus bar run length and the area of cross section should be
designed so that the circuit resistance value for each of the strings is equal
within limits 5%.

Charging

Discharging

Commissioning charge
Before use, the batteries should be charged at a constant charging voltage
(with a charging current limited to 0.1C10) with one of the following method :
Charge during 96 hours with the floating voltage between 2.27 and 2.30 Vpc in
ambient temperature range between 15 to 25C.
or charge with the 2.40Vpc boost charge voltage during minimum 24 to 48
hours maximum to reduce the commissioning charging period (the battery will
then be switched over to float charging, maintain the battery under floating
voltage for 24 hours before any discharge test, see hereafter).

PowerSafe V batteries must not be left in a discharged condition after


supplying the load, but must immediately return to float recharge mode.
Failure to observe these conditions may result in greatly reduced service life.

Accidental deep discharging


For optimum operation the minimum voltage of the system should be related to
the duty as follows:
Minimum end voltage

Duty

5 min t 1h

If the battery is to be subjected to a discharge test, in this case the test will
be performed imperatively after that the commissioning charge has been
carried out. Check that the battery is fully charged.

1.65V

1h t 5h

1.70V

5h t 8h

1.75V

Float voltage

1.80V

The recommended float charge voltage is 2.28 volts per cell at 20C.
Following a commission charge and after 6 months continuous charge at the
recommended float voltage, individual cell voltages will stabilise within 4.5%
of the mean applied voltage.
However, immediately following commissioning and for the initial 6 months of
continuous float charge, individual cell voltage values outside the above
tolerance may be observed without adverse effect. There is no relationship
between a cells float voltage and its discharge capacity. Cells are perfectly
capable of giving their discharge capacity even when outside the 4.5% range.
After 6 months service, should any individual cell or monobloc show a
continuing reduction or increase in voltage outside the above limits over 3
successive monthly periods, Enersys should be contacted for advice.
When the average ambient temperature deviates more than 5C from the
reference temperature (20C), it is necessary to adjust the float voltage as
follows:

In order to protect the battery it is advisable to have system monitoring and low
voltage cut-out.
Deep discharge will produce a premature deteriation of the battery and a
noticeable reduction in the life expectancy of the battery.

If the charger does not permit an adjustment of float voltage in relation to the
temperature, it is possible to set a float voltage value according to the
temperature ranges as indicated in the last table of this publication.

Charging current
A discharged VRLA battery will accept a high recharge current, but for those
seeking a more economical charging system a current limit of 0.08 C10 : 0.1 C3
(A) is adequate.

Operation of valve regulated batteries at temperatures higher than 20C will


reduce life expectancy. Life is reduced by 50% for every 10C rise in
temperature.

The containers and lids shall be kept dry and and free from dust. Cleaning must
be done only with a damp cotton cloth without man-made fibres.
WARNING - Do NOT use any type of oil, solvent, detergent, petroleum-based
solvent or ammonia solution to clean the battery containers or lids. These
materials will cause permanent damage to the battery container and lid and will
invalidate the warranty.
Check monthly that total voltage at battery terminals is (N x 2.28 V) for a
temperature at 20C. (N being the number of cells in the battery). Make annual
readings of the voltages of cells making up the battery.
Keep a logbook to record values, power outages, discharge tests, etc.
An autonomy control can be done once a year.

Fast recharge
Increasing the charge voltage to 2.40Vpc with a current limited to 0.1 C10 : 0.125
C3 (A) can reduce recharge times. Fast charge should be stopped after
approximately 10 to 15 hours. This charge regime, in order to achieve a normal
service life, must not be used more than once per month.

Float charge ripple


Excessive ripple on the D.C. supply across a battery has the effect of reducing
life and performance.
It is therefore recommended that voltage regulation across the system,
including the load but without the battery connected, under steady state
conditions, shall be better than 1% through 5% to 100% load.

State of charge
The battery state of charge can be determined approximately by measuring the
open circuit voltage after the battery has been at rest for a minimum of 24 hours
at 20C.

Outillage

Les batteries PowerSafe V sont expdies charges.


Il faut les dballer avec prcaution pour viter tout
courant de court-circuit trs lev entre bornes de
polarits opposes. Utiliser des systmes de levage
compatibles avec les poignes plastiques de
llment/monobloc.

En cas de surcharge accidentelle, un gaz inflammable


peut schapper de la valve de scurit.

Utiliser des outils dont le manche est isol.

Se dcharger rgulirement la terre de toute


lectricit statique en touchant une partie mtallique.

Rception de la batterie
Il est recommand de dballer tous les lments/monoblocs et accessoires
avant de commencer linstallation plutt que de dballer et dinstaller lment
par lment.
Manipuler les batteries avec prcaution car en cas de choc ou de chute les
bacs pourraient se casser. Ne jamais lever les batteries par leur bornes.
Vrifier que le matriel est arriv dans de bonnes conditions et quil correspond
la liste de colisage ou bon de livraison. Dans le cas contraire mettre des
rserves auprs du transporteur et contacter notre service commercial.
Suivant les types, les lments/monoblocs sont expdis avec des protections
sur chaque borne ou avec des capots de couleur noire.
Ne retirer ces protections que lors de linstallation et de la connexion des
lments/monoblocs.

Stockage
Stocker la batterie dans un endroit sec, propre et frais.
Comme les batteries sont livres charges, le temps de stockage est limit. Afin
de recharger facilement les batteries aprs cette priode, il est conseill de ne
pas dpasser un temps de stockage sans recharge de :
6 mois 20C
3 mois 30C
1.5 mois 40C
On effectuera alors une recharge par exemple 2.27-2.30 volts ( 20C) par
lment pendant 48 96 heures. Une limitation de courant nest pas imprative
mais pour une charge optimale celui-ci peut tre limit 10% de la capacit C3.
La ncessit dune charge peut galement tre dtermine en mesurant la
tension de circuit ouvert dune batterie stocke, si la tension est infrieure
2.10 volts par lment. Le non-respect de ces consignes portera prjudice la
dure de vie de la batterie.

Ne pas placer ou laisser tomber dobjets mtalliques sur


la batterie.

Temprature
Eviter de placer la batterie dans un endroit chaud ou derrire une fentre
expose au soleil. La batterie donnera les meilleurs services/performances
entre 20C et 25C. La plage de temprature habituelle en exploitation se situe
entre 10C et +45C. Les limites ne pas dpasser sont fixes -30C et
+45C.

Ventilation
Dans des conditions normales, lchappement de gaz est trs faible. Une
ventilation naturelle est suffisante et permet dutiliser des batteries PowerSafe
V autant dans des bureaux que dans des ateliers, prs de lquipement.
Cependant, il est ncessaire dassurer une aration adquate pour les batteries
montes en armoires. Les batteries ne doivent pas tre installes dans des
armoires fermes.

Montage
Les chantiers ou armoires EnerSys sont recommands pour une installation
approprie. Assembler le chantier en suivant les instructions jointes lenvoi.
Placer les lments de la batterie sur le chantier et se rfrer au plan pour la
position correcte des polarits. Contrler que les surfaces de contact sont
propres avant de poser les interconnexions et les crous. Serrer les crous.

Serrage des crous


Serrer les crous ou les boulons au couple de serrage indiqu sur les
tiquettes des lments/monoblocs. Une connexion mal serre peut entraner
des problmes pour le rglage de la tension du chargeur, un fonctionnement
htrogne de la batterie et porter prjudice la batterie et/ou au personnel.
Placer enfin les protge connexions.

Montage des lments en parallle


Dans la mesure o des chargeurs tension constante sont utiliss et que les
batteries prsentent la mme resistance lectrique, il ny a pas de dispositions
spciales prendre pour connecter des batteries en parallle.

Installation
La batterie doit tre installe dans un endroit sec et propre. Les batteries
PowerSafe V trs faible dgagement gazeux (taux de recombinaison 95%)
en fonctionnement normal peuvent tre installes prs de tout autre matriel
lectrique. Linstallation doit tre effectue conformment aux normes
nationales (par exemple EN 50272-2) ou aux instructions du fabricant.

Charge
Charge de mise en service
Avant utilisation, les batteries devront tre charges tension constante avec
un courant limit 0.1C10 suivant une de ces deux mthodes :
2.27-2.30 Vpe avec une temprature ambiante comprise entre 15 et 25C
durant 96 heures.
ou 2.40Vpe durant 24 48h maximum afin de rduire le temps de charge de

mise en service (et ensuite passer la tension de floating, maintenir la


batterie pendant 24h en tension de floating avant de raliser un test de
capacit, voir ci-dessous).
Si la batterie doit tre soumise avant son exploitation un test de dcharge
sur site, dans ce cas ce test doit tre ralis imprativement aprs avoir
effectu la charge de mise en service. Vrifier que la batterie est pleinement
charge.

Dcharge
Les batteries PowerSafe V ne doivent pas rester dcharges aprs avoir t
sollicites mais doivent immdiatement subir une recharge en floating.
Le non-respect de ces consignes peut porter prjudice la dure de vie de la
batterie.

Dcharge profonde accidentelle


Tension de floating

La tension de fin de dcharge doit tre limite aux valeurs ci-dessous :

La tension de floating recommande est de 2.28 volts par lment 20C.


Suite la charge de mise en service et aprs 6 mois la tension de floating
recommande, les tensions individuelles des lments se stabiliseront dans
une plage de 4,5% par rapport la tension moyenne de la batterie. Cependant,
immdiatement aprs la mise en service et pendant les 6 premiers mois en
tension de floating continue, il se peut que lon observe des valeurs de tension
individuelle par lment en dehors des limites ci-dessus, sans causer deffet
dfavorable. Il ny a pas de rapport entre la tension de floating dun lment et
sa capacit de dcharge. Les lments sont parfaitement capables de fournir la
capacit demande mme lorsquils sont en dehors de la plage 4,5%.

- sur la dure de vie


Lutilisation des batteries tanches des tempratures suprieures 20C
rduit leur dure de vie. A chaque augmentation de 10C on divise la dure de
vie par deux.

Maintenance/Contrles
Les batteries tanches PowerSafe V recombinaison de gaz sont sans
entretien et ne ncessitent aucune adjonction deau. Les bacs et couvercles
doivent toujours tre secs et exempts de poussire. Nettoyer exclusivement
avec un chiffon en coton humidifi sans fibres synthtiques.

Werkzeug:

PowerSafe V Batterien sind bei Lieferung geladen und


mssen vorsichtig ausgepackt werden. Kurzschluss
zwischen den Polen vermeiden, da die Batterie einen sehr
hohen Kurzschlussstrom liefert. Die Batterien ausschlielich
an den Plastikgriffen tragen. Falls erforderlich, nur
angepate Hebegerte verwenden.

Beim Laden kann aus dem Sicherheitsventil ein explosives


Gas entweichen. Elektrostatische Aufladung vermeiden.
Jede mgliche elektrostatische Aufladung (z.B. Kleidung)
durch Berhrung eines geerdeten Gegenstandes entladen.

Nur isolierte Werkzeuge verwenden.


Keine Metallgegenstnde auf die Batterie legen oder fallen
lassen.
Fingerringe, Armbanduhren und andere Metallgegenstnde
an der Kleidung entfernen, falls sie mit den Batteriepolen in
Berhrung kommen knnten.

Anlieferung der Batterie / Auspacken


Die Batterien sofort bei Anlieferung auspacken. Es wird empfohlen, vor Montagebeginn
alle Zellen/Blcke und das Zubehr auszupacken.
Alle Zellen/Blcke vorsichtig behandeln, da bei Sturz die Kunststoff-Gefe beschdigt
werden oder brechen knnen. Auf keinen Fall an den Polen anheben.
Die gesamte Lieferung prfen, ob das Material komplett und in einwandfreiem Zustand
angeliefert wurde. Schden sofort dem Spediteur und dem Lieferanten melden.
Werfen Sie nicht aus Versehen Zubehrmaterial zusammen mit der Verpackung weg.
Einzelne Pole sind mit Transportabdeckungen oder kompletten Abdeckkappen versehen.
Alle Typen sind werkseitig mit diesen Isolierungen versehen. Diese Kappen erst direkt vor
Anschlu der Pole entfernen.

Lagerung

Temperatur
Die Batterie darf nicht hohen Temperaturen oder dem direkten Sonnenlicht ausgesetzt
werden. Die Batterie funktioniert am besten und erzielt lange Gebrauchsdauer zwischen
20C und 25C. Der bliche Betriebsbereich liegt zwischen -10C und +45C. Die
Temperaturgrenzwerte liegen bei -30C und +45C.

Belftung
Unter normalen Betriebsbedingungen ist die Gasentwicklung sehr gering und eine
natrliche Belftung reicht meistens fr Khlzwecke und bei nur gelegentlicher
berladung aus. Die Verwendung der PowerSafe V Batterien in Bros und Werksttten ist
daher zulssig, wenn die Anforderungen an die Lftung eingehalten werden.
Bei Batterien in Schrnken mu z.B. durch Lftungsschlitze fr ausreichend Lftung
gesorgt werden. Batterien drfen nicht in geschlossenen Schrnken/Shelter verwendet
werden.

Die Batterien an einem trockenen, sauberen und khlen Ort lagern.


Obwohl die Batterien im geladenen Zustand geliefert werden, ist ihre Lagerzeit begrenzt.
Um eine einfache Ladung nach Lagerung zu ermglichen sind folgenden Lagerzeiten
mglichst nicht zu berschreiten:
6 Monate bei 20C
3 Monate bei 30C
1,5 Monate bei 40C
Nach berschreiten dieser Lagerzeiten mu ein Aufladen erfolgen bei 2,27-2,30 Volt pro
Zelle und 20C ber 48 bis 96 Stunden. Der Ladestrom mu nicht begrenzt werden, jedoch
kann zu einer effektiven Ladung der Strom auf 10% der 3 std. Kapazitt begrenzt werden.
Die Notwendigkeit einer Auffrischungsladung nach Lagerung kann auch ber die
Messung der Leerlaufspannung der gelagerten Batterie festgestellt werden.
Wenn die Leerlaufspannung kleiner 2,10 V/Zelle ist, mu die Batterie geladen werden.
Nichteinhaltung dieser Anweisungen fhrt zu einer verringerten Kapazitt der Batterie und
verkrzt ihre Lebensdauer.

Installation
Die Batterie muss an einem trockenen und sauberen Ort installiert werden.
PowerSafe V Batterien erzeugen eine minimale Gasmenge whrend des normalen
Betriebs (Gasrekombinationsrate >= 95%).
Hinsichtlich der Unterbringung der Batterie und der Belftung der Rume sind nationale
Anforderungen (z.B. entsprechend der Europischen Norm EN 50272-2) oder
Herstellerangaben zu beachten.

Sicherheit
Die elektrischen Schutzmanahmen, die Unterbringung und die Belftung mssen den
geltenden Vorschriften und Regeln entsprechen. (Norm EN 50272-2).

Montage
Fr die Installation werden geeignete Batteriegestelle oder Schrnke von EnerSys
empfohlen. Batteriegestelle sind entsprechend beigefgten Anleitungen zu montieren.
Die Blockbatterien/Zellen auf dem Gestell aufstellen und auf die richtige Polaritt bei der
Verschaltung achten. Vor der Montage der Verbinder darauf achten, dass alle
Kontaktflchen sauber sind. Verwenden Sie die Zell/Blockverbinder und die Polschrauben.
Die Schrauben mit dem vorgeschriebenen Drehmoment festziehen. Vor dem Anschlu der
Batterieklemmen an das Ladegert auf die richtige Polaritt achten und einen Kurzschluss
vermeiden. Es ist wichtig, auf einen sicheren Stand der Batterie zu achten.

Anziehen der Schrauben


Die Schrauben oder Muttern mit dem auf dem Batterieetikett angegebenen maximalen
Drehmoment festziehen. Eine schlecht festgezogene Verbindung kann Probleme bei der
Spannungsregelung des Ladegertes, eine Fehlfunktion der Batterie beim Entladen und
Schden an der Batterie und/oder Verletzungen des Personals mit sich bringen. Zum
Schlu die isolierenden Abdeckkappen aufsetzen.

Parallelschaltung von Batterien


Zum Erreichen einer hheren Kapazitt drfen nur Blockbatterien / Zellen mit
gleicher Kapazitt (Ah) parallel geschaltet werden. Aus praktischen Grnden sollten
nicht mehr als 4 Strnge parallel geschaltet werden.

Falls mit Konstantspannungs-Ladegerten geladen wird und sichergestellt ist, dass


die Verbindungen vom Ladegert zu den Batterien die gleichen elektrischen
Widerstnde aufweisen, sind keine weiteren Manahmen zu beachten.

Aufladen
Inbetriebnahme-Ladung

Entladen
PowerSafe V Batterien drfen nicht im entladenen Zustand verbleiben, sondern
mssen sofort wieder durch Erhaltungsladung geladen werden, da sich sonst die
Lebensdauer und die Zuverlssigkeit der Batterie verringert.

Versehentliche Tiefentladung

Vor dem Einsatz sollten die Batterien bei einer konstanten Ladespannung (mit
einem auf 0.1C10 begrenzten Ladestrom) nach einer der folgenden Methoden
aufgeladen werden:
96 Stunden lang mit einer Schwebeladungsspannung zwischen 2,27 und 2,30 Vpc
in einem Umgebungstemperaturbereich von 15 bis 25C
oder mind. 24 bis max. 48 Stunden lang mit einer Boostladespannung von 2,40Vpc
aufladen, um die Dauer der Inbetriebnahme-Ladung zu verkrzen (die Batterie
wird dann auf Erhaltungsladespannung umgeschaltet; die Batterie vor einem
allflligen Entladetest 24 Stunden unter Erhaltungsspannung belassen, s. unten).
Soll die Batterie einem Entladetest unterzogen werden, darf dieser Test unbedingt
erst nach Abschluss der Inbetriebnahme-Ladung durchgefhrt werden.
Sicherstellen, dass die Batterie voll aufgeladen ist.

Erhaltungsladespannung

Fr einen optimalen Betrieb sollten entsprechend der Entladedauer folgende


Entladeschluspannungen nicht unterschritten werden:
minimale
Entladeschluspannung

Entladedauer
5 min t 1 h
1ht5h
5ht8h
8 h t 20 h

1,65 V/Zelle
1,70 V/Zelle
1,75 V/Zelle
1,80 V/Zelle

Batterie-Monitoring, ein Tiefentladeschutz oder eine Zeitschaltuhr knnen eine


unzulssige Tiefentladung der Batterie verhindern. Nach einer Entladung mssen die
Batterien sofort wiederaufgeladen werden.

Die empfohlene Erhaltungsladespannung betrgt 2,28 Volt pro Zelle bei 20C.

Derartige Tiefentladung bringt eine vorzeitige Beschdigung der Batterie und einen
nicht unbetrchtlichen negativen Einfluss auf die Lebensdauer der Batterie mit sich.

Nach der Inbetriebsetzungsladung sowie weiteren 6 Monaten bei der empfohlenen


Erhaltungsladespannung stabilisieren sich die Einzelspannungen der Zellen in einem
Bereich von 4,5 % der mittleren Spannung der Zelle.

Einfluss der Temperatur


- auf die Kapazitt

Direkt nach der Inbetriebsetzung und whrend der ersten 6 Monate im


Bereitschaftsparallelbetrieb, ist es mglich, dab Spannungswerte einzelner Zellen
ausserhalb des oben aufgefhrten Toleranzbes sind , ohne nachteilige Folgen. Es gibt
in dieser Zeit keinen Zusammenhang zwischen der Erhaltungsladespannung einer
Zelle und ihrer Entladungskapazitt. Dies heibt, die Zellen sind fhig, die geforderte
Kapazitt zu liefern, auch wenn sie ausserhalb des Bereichs von 4,5% liegen.

Folgende Korrekturfaktoren der Entladezeit je nach Temperatur sind zu beachten,


wobei die Bezugstemperatur 20C betrgt.

Wenn das Ladegert keine temperaturgefhrte Regelung der


Erhaltungsladespannung enthlt, muss die Erhaltungsladespannung nach den in der
Tabelle im Abschnitt Technische Angaben zum Laden bei konstanter Spannung
angegebenen Temperaturbereichen eingestellt werden.

Die Verwendung von verschlossenen Batterien bei Temperaturen ber 20C


verringert ihre Lebensdauer. Je 10C erhhter Temperatur reduziert sich die
Gebrauchsdauer um ca. 50%.

Wartung/Kontrolle
PowerSafe V Batterien mit Gasrekombination sind verschlossen, wartungsfrei und
brauchen/knnen nicht mit Wasser nachgefllt werden.
Die Gehuse und Deckel mssen stets trocken und staubfrei gehalten werden.
Nur mit einem angefeuchteten Baumwolltuch reinigen.
WARNUNG - Die Nutzung jeglicher Art von len, Lsungssmitteln, Tensiden und
aliphatischen oder ammoniakalischen Lsungen zur Reinigung der Battriegefe
oder Deckel ist NICHT erlaubt. Diese Mittel beschdigen das Gef und den Deckel
dauerhaft, bei Nutzung entfllt jeglicher Gewhrleistungs-anspruch.
Monatlich prfen, ob die Gesamtspannung an den Batterieklemmen N x 2,28 V (bei
20C) betrgt, wobei N die Anzahl der Batteriezellen ist.
Einmal jhrlich alle Spannungen der Monoblockbatterien oder Zellen messen.

Ladestrom
Bei der IU-Ladung ist bis zum Erreichen der eingestellten Spannungsbegrenzung
eine Begrenzung des Ladestroms nicht erforderlich. Nach Erreichen der
Konstantspannung wird der Ladestrom automatisch reduziert. Fr ein
wirtschaftliches Ladesystem empfehlen sich Ladestrme von 0,08 C10 bis 0,1 C3 (A) .

Starkladen
Erhhte Lade-Spannung von 2,40V/Zelle bei einer Strombegrenzung von 0,1 C10 bis
0,125 C3 (A) reduziert die Ladezeit. Die Starkladung ist nach ca.10 bis 15 Stunden zu
beenden. Um die normale Gebrauchsdauer der Batterie nicht zu reduzieren, sollte
dieses Verfahren hchstens einmal pro Monat angewendet werden.

berlagerter Wechselstrom
Unerwnschte berlagerte Wechselstrme knnen irreversible Schden an einer
Batterie hervorrufen und ihre Kapazitt und Lebensdauer verringern. Es wird
empfohlen, den berlagerten Wechselstrom auf 0,05 C10 (in Ampere) zu begrenzen.

Ladezustand
Der Ladezustand der Batterie kann abgeschtzt werden, indem nach einer 24stndigen Ruhepause der Batterie bei 20C die Leerlaufspannung (Ruhespannung)
gemessen wird.

Precauciones

Evitar las chispas

Utensilios

Las bateras PowerSafe V se expiden ya cargadas; se


deben desembalar con precaucin para evitar corrientes
de cortocircuito muy elevadas entre bornas de
polaridades opuestas. Utilizar sistemas de elevacin
compatibles con las asas de plstico del
elemento/monobloc.

En caso de sobrecarga accidental, un gas inflamable


puede escaparse por la vlvula de seguridad. Descargar
regularmente a tierra toda electricidad esttica tocando
una parte metlica.

Utilizar utensilios con mangos aislantes.No colocar o


dejar caer objetos metlicos sobre la batera. Retirar las
sortijas, relojes o ropas que lleven elementos metlicos y
que pudieran entrar en contacto con las bornas de la
batera.

Desembalaje
Se recomienda desembalar todos los elementos o monoblocs y accesorios antes
de comenzar la instalacin, en vez de desembalar e instalar elemento por
elemento.
Todos los elementos/unidades deben ser manipulados con precaucin, ya que los
recipientes de plstico podran romperse en caso de golpe o cada.
Nunca levantar las bateras por sus bornas.
Verificar que el material ha llegado en buenas condiciones y que se corresponde
con el albarn de entrega o lista de bultos. En caso contrario, emitir una
reclamacin al transportista y contactar con nuestro departamento comercial.
Segn los modelos, los elementos/monoblocs son expedidos con protecciones en
cada borna o con tapas de color negro.
No retirar estas protecciones ms que para la instalacin y la conexin de los
elementos/monoblocs.

Almacenaje
Almacenar la batera en un lugar seco, limpio y fresco.
Como las bateras se entregan cargadas,el tiempo de almacenaje es limitado.
A fin de recargar fcilmente las bateras tras este perodo,se aconseja no superar
un tiempo de almacenaje sin recarga de :
6 meses a 20C,
3 meses a 30C,
1.5 meses a 40C.
Se realizar entonces una recarga, por ejemplo a 2.272.30 voltios por elemento a
20C durante 48 a 96 horas. No es esencial una limitacin de corriente pero, para
una carga ptima, la corriente de salida del cargador puede limitarse al 10% de la
capacidad C3. La necesidad de una carga puede igualmente determinarse
midiendo la tensin del circuito abierto de una batera almacenada,si la tensin es
inferior a 2.10 voltios por elemento. El no seguir estas normas acortar la vida de
la batera.

Seguir las instrucciones de uso

a las normas nacionales (por ejemplo EN 50272-2 en Francia) o a las instrucciones


del fabricante.

Temperatura
Evitar colocar la batera en un lugar caliente o detrs de una ventana expuesta al
sol. La batera ofrecer el mejor servicio entre 20C y 25C. El margen de
temperatura habitual en situacin de explotacin se ubica entre -10C y +45C.
Los lmites que no se deben superar estn establecidos a -30C y +45C.

Ventilacin
En condiciones normales,el escape de gas es muy bajo.Una ventilacin natural es
suficiente y permite utilizar las bateras PowerSafe V tanto en oficinas como en
talleres, cerca de los equipos. Sin embargo, es necesario asegurar una
ventilacin adecuada para las bateras montadas en armarios. Las bateras no
deben ser instaladas dentro de armarios cerrados.

Montaje
Para una instalacin apropiada se recomiendan las estanteras o armarios
EnerSys. Ensamblar la estantera siguiendo las instrucciones que se adjuntan al
envo. Colocar los elementos de la batera sobre la estantera y remitirse al plano
para la posicin correcta de las polaridades. Comprobar que las superficies de
contacto estn limpias antes de colocar las interconexiones y las tuercas. Apretar
las tuercas. Seguir las polaridades para evitar cortocircuitos, despus conectar
las bornas de la batera. Es importante que la batera se instale de forma estable.

Ajuste de las tuercas


Apretar los tornillos o tuercas al par de apriete indicado en las etiquetas de los
elementos/monoblocs. Una conexin mal apretada puede ocasionar problemas
para el reglaje de la tensin del cargador, un funcionamiento heterogneo de la
batera y perjudicar a la batera y/o al personal. Colocar finalmente los protectores
de las conexiones.

Montaje de los elementos en paralelo

Instalacin

Utilizando cargadores a tensin constante y asegurndose que las conexiones


entre el cargador y las bateras tienen la misma resistencia elctrica, no es
necesario un especial preparativo.

La batera debe instalarse en un lugar seco y limpio. Las bateras


PowerSafe V con muy bajo desprendimiento gaseoso (porcentaje de
recombinacin 95%) en funcionamiento normal pueden ser instaladas cerca de
cualquier otro material elctrico. La instalacin deber efectuarse conforme

Aunque no se requieren preparativos especiales del circuito, cuando la conexin


es en paralelo el valor de resistencia del circuito para cada una de las ramas
deber ser igual con una tolerancia de 5%.

Carga

Descarga

Carga de puesta en marcha


Antes de utilizarse, las bateras deberan cargarse a una tensin de carga
constante (con una corriente de carga limitada a 0,1C10) con uno de los siguientes
mtodos:
Carga durante 96 horas con tensin flotante entre Vpc 2,27 y 2,30 Vpc y un rango
de temperatura ambiente entre 15 y 25C, o
Carga con tensin de carga de refuerzo de 2,40Vpc durante un mnimo de 24 y un
mximo de 48 horas para reducir el periodo de carga de puesta en marcha
(la batera conmuta entonces a carga flotante; mantener la batera con tensin
flotante durante 24 horas antes de realizar cualquier test de descarga; vase a
continuacin)

Las bateras PowerSafe V no deben quedar descargadas despus de haber


suministrado una carga, sino que deben ser inmediatamente puestas en carga de
flotacin.
El no seguir estas normas puede perjudicar a la duracin de vida de la batera.

Descarga profunda accidental


Para un funcionamiento ptimo, la tensin mnima del sistema deber estar
relacionada con la descarga como sigue:
Descarga
5 min t 1h
1h t 5h
5h t 8h
8h t 20h

Si la batera ha de someterse a una test de descarga, el mismo ha de realizarse


imperiosamente despus de haberse efectuado la carga de puesta en marcha.
Compruebe que la batera est totalmente cargada.

Tensin de flotacin
La tensin de flotacin recomendada es de 2,28 voltios por elemento a 20C.
A continuacin de la carga de puesta en servicio y despus de 6 meses a la
tensin de flotacin recomendada, las tensiones individuales de los elementos se
estabilizarn en una cota de 4,5% respecto a la tensin media de la batera.
Sin embargo, inmediatamente despus de la puesta en servicio y durante los 6
primeros meses en tensin de flotacin continua, puede que se observen valores
de tensin individual por elemento fuera de los lmites arriba mencionados, sin
causar efecto desfavorable. No hay relacin entre la tensin de flotacin de un
elemento y su capacidad de descarga. Los elementos son perfectamente
capaces de suministrar la capacidad demandada incluso cuando se encuentren
fuera de la cota 4,5%.
Despus de 6 meses de servicio, en caso de que la tensin de un elemento o de
un monobloc estuviera fuera de los lmites anteriormente mencionados durante
ms de 3 meses sucesivos, se debera contactar entonces con el servicio
comercial de Enersys.
Cuando la temperatura media ambiente vare 5C con respecto a la temperatura
de referencia (20C), se deber ajustar la tensin de flotacin como sigue:

Corriente de carga
Una batera de recombinacin de gas de plomo cido descargada aceptar una
corriente de recarga elevada; no obstante, la limitacin a 0.08 C10 ( 0.1C3) de la
corriente permitir una recarga econmica.

Recarga rpida
Aumentando la tensin de carga a 2,40 V/elemento con una corriente limitada a
0,1 C10 ( 0,125 C3) se reducir el tiempo de carga. Esta recarga rpida deber
detenerse despus de unas 10 a 15 horas. Este rgimen de carga, con el fin de
obtener una vida de servicio normal, no deber ser utilizado ms de una vez por
mes.

Rizado de la corriente
Un excesivo rizado en la alimentacin en continua a travs de la batera reduce la
vida de sta.
Adems, se recomienda que la regulacin de la tensin del equipo, con la carga
conectada y sin la batera, en condiciones permanentes, sea mejor que el 1%
desde un 5% al 100% de la carga.

Estado de carga
El estado de carga de la batera se puede determinar de forma aproximada
midiendo la tensin de circuito abierto tras haber dejado en reposo la batera
durante 24 horas a 20C.

- sobre la vida de la batera


La utilizacin de bateras estancas a temperaturas superiores a 20C reduce la
duracin de su vida. Su vida se reduce en un 50% por cada incremento de 10C en
la temperatura.

Mantenimiento/Controles
Las bateras estancas PowerSafe V de recombinacin de gas no tienen
mantenimiento y no necesitan adicin de agua. Las tapas y recipientes deben
estar siempre secos y sin polvo. Limpiar exclusivamente con un trapo de algodn
hmedo sin fibras Sintticas.
AVISO IMPORTANTE No utilizar ningn tipo de aceite, disolvente, detergente,
disolventes hechos a partir de petrleo o soluciones con amoniaco para limpiar
las tapas y recipientes de la batera. Estos productos causan daos irreversibles a
la tapa y contenedor del acumulador y por lo tanto su uso invalidar la garanta.
Todos los meses, comprobar que la tensin total en las bornas de la batera es de
(N x 2,28V) para una temperatura de 20C (siendo N el nmero de elementos de la
batera).
Una vez al ao, efectuar una lectura de la tensin de los elementos que
constituyen la batera. Llevar un cuaderno de mantenimiento en el que se anoten
los valores tomados de tensin total, los cortes de electricidad, los tests de
descarga, etc.
Se podr efectuar un control de autonoma una vez al ao.
