CyberCat / Cheetah Xi & SHP Pro Battery Charging Supervisory Circuit Update

This is a follow-up to the Technical Bulletins SDC 05-001 & DC2004-001. In some instances panels using 7-18Amp Hour (Ah) batteries will report a nuisance battery fault. The “Charger Supervision” specified by NFPA 1999/UL 864 ninth edition has led to Battery Charger supervision. A small amount of these systems with 18Ah and smaller batteries quit accepting a charge sufficient to satisfy the charging supervision minimum current flow requirement. The SHP Pro, CyberCat, and Cheetah Xi share the same principles of supervision and can be treated in the same manner.

The following is an excerpt from Technical Bulletin SDC 05-001:

“Battery Charging Update

After initial release of the SHP PRO, with the changes by UL that requires the panel to monitor the charger, hardware changes to the board were made to reduce nuisance battery supervision fault troubles (“E”). Revision K boards monitor for 300 micro amps of charging current. We continue to receive reports that some of the 7 or 18 AH batteries are pulling less than 0.3 ma (300 ua). If you experience an “E” fault on a Rev K or higher board:

1. Use a current (Amp) meter in series with the battery leads to measure and record the amount

of current.

2. Perform a load test on the batteries to ensure they pass manufacturer minimum specifications.

3. If the current recorded in Step 1 was less than .3 ma (300 ua), but the batteries passed the load test, you should install a 10-2517 battery wiring assembly that includes a 27K EOL resistor. NOTE: The steps above must be performed in the order noted. Measuring the current after the load test would be inaccurate at this point since the load test would have drawn load from the batteries and cause them to now draw more charging current than if measured while you

had the “E” trouble on your panel prior to performing the load test.

Note: If the SHP PRO board is of a revision earlier than Rev. K, refer to Technical Bulletin

DC2004-001.”

Harness Installation

Below is a wiring diagram of the 10-2517 harness which uses 02-11368 piggy back style spade connectors to land on the battery terminals. While testing battery supervision, leave the 10-2517 harness with resistor connected across the battery terminals. Note: Harness isn‘t connected to control panel screw terminals.
