    Delta-Q QUIQ Charger Troubleshooting Guide.

     

    No Lights at all (All Models)

    No lights at all indicate that ac power to the charger is not connected or that the AC voltage is too low.

    1) Check the connections to ac power. Check for AC voltage between 104 and 260 VAC at the charger.

    2) If the AC voltage is verified to be correct at the connection to the charger, and the charger still displays no lights at all, return the charger for service.

     

    FAULT LED Flashing (All Models).

     

    The Fault LED flashes to indicate the micro controller inside the battery charger has  detected a fault. The number of flashes indicates the fault detected. Count the number of flashes to determine the fault.

    With any battery system, the most common problem will be a faulty battery connection.

    Because of the high likelihood of a battery connection problem, it is always worthwhile to confirm that all connections are good before checking for any other problems.

     

    NOTE:

    There are 3 different part numbers for the Delta-Q charger. All chargers operate in the same manner. Differences include: physical appearance, such as face plate labels;

    charge algorithm selection (as noted in instruction manual for each); harnesses; and charge modes (0606-00523/0606-00678 and 0606-00623/0606-00723) each have an optional PRC (Pack Recovery Charge) cycle for recycling GEL batteries ONLY.

    [1 Flash]

    0606-00423 - High Battery Voltage (Auto-Recovery)

    1) Indicates either a battery failure or an open circuit. Check the battery connections. Check the battery for an open cell. Confirm the battery is in good condition.

    2) This fault will automatically clear and the charger will restart charging when this problem is removed.

    3) High battery voltage could also occur if there is another source charging the battery. Disconnect any other sources during charging.

    0606-00523/0606-00678 & 0606-00623/0606-00723 – Temp Out Of Range

    1) The battery is too Hot or too Cold to charge.

    [2 Flashes]

    0606-00423 - Low Battery Voltage (Auto-Recovery)

    1) Indicates a battery failure, no battery connected, or a lower than expected battery voltage. Check the battery and battery connections.

    2) Check the nominal battery voltage. The first two digits of the four-digit model name indicate the battery voltage it supports. Confirm that a nominal battery voltage is the same as the charger voltage.

    3) This fault will clear automatically when the low battery voltage problem is rectified.

    0606-00523/0606-00678 & 0606-00623/0606-00723 – Battery Voltage Is Out Of Range

    1) The battery voltage is too High or too Low to allow charging to proceed.

    [3Flashes] -Charge Timeout

    Indicates the battery failed to charge within the allowed time. This could occur if the battery is of larger capacity than the algorithm is intended for. In unusual cases it could mean charger output is reduced due to high ambient temperature.

    1) Check the battery for damage such as shorted cells and insufficient water. Try the charger on a good battery.

    2) If the same fault occurs on a good battery, check the connections on the battery and connection to ac.

    3) Confirm that the nominal battery pack voltage is the same as the battery charger voltage.

    4) This fault must be cleared manually by unplugging the ac, waiting 30 seconds and reconnecting the ac power.

     

    [4 Flashes] -(DOES NOT APPLY TO 0606-00523 or 0606-00623)

    Check Battery. This fault indicated the battery pack could not be trickle

    charged up to the minimum level required for the normal charge cycle to be started.

     

    1) Check that none of the battery pack connections between modules are reversed or incorrectly connected.

    2) Check that one or more cells in the battery are not shorted.

    3) Confirm that the nominal battery pack voltage is the same as the battery charger voltage.

    4) Try the charger on a good battery. 0606-00678 & 0606-00723

    AC Shutdown; Auto-recover. Charger has shut down due to AC line voltage going out of range. Charger will restart when AC voltage comes back in to range and the SMC interval has elapsed.

    1) Verify AC line voltage is above 104VAC.

    [5 Flashes] -Over Temperature

    This fault indicates the charger has become too hot during operation. This extra fault indication (as opposed to the flashing ammeter described above) indicates an even higher temperature was reached inside the charger. Though not damaging to the charger, charge time will be extended significantly.

    1) This fault indication will not clear automatically, but the charger will restart charging automatically when the temperature drops. The fault indication must be cleared manually by unplugging the ac, waiting 30 seconds and reconnecting the ac power.

    2) If possible, install the charger in a cooler location.

    3) Confirm that dirt or mud is not blocking the cooling fins of the charger. Clean the

    charger. Rinse the charger with low-pressure hose if required. Do not use high pressure. Do not use a pressure washer.

    [6 Flashes] Delta-Q QuiQ Fault

    This fault indicates that the batteries will not accept charge current, or an internal fault has been detected in the charger. This fault will nearly always be set within the first 30seconds of operation.

    1) Try to clear the fault by unplugging AC power, waiting 30 to 60 seconds, and then reconnect the AC power.

    2) Check all battery connections. Look for a high resistance connection. The most likely reason for this fault is a fault in the battery such as a bad battery connection, an open cell, or insufficient water, or poor/incorrect charger connection.

    3) This fault will occur if an internal open circuit situation has been encountered. If the green wire is shorted to ground even momentarily this may cause an open circuit internally. To check for the open circuit, measure with an ohmmeter between the green and red wires with the ac disconnected. If a short circuit is not measured, the circuit is open. Return unit to a service depot to have the unit repaired or replaced.

    4) For software revision 0.81 or older, this fault may indicate that the input or output voltage went out of range. Check input and output connections before returning the unit to a service depot. Charger may need to be brought to a service depot to have its software upgraded. Refer to the lower right hand corner on the back of the Product Manual to determine the software revision.

    5) If this fault occurs after battery charging has started, confirm that ac power was not interrupted and that all battery connections are good.

    6) If all battery connections are good, an internal fault has been detected and the charger must be brought to a qualified service depot.

     

    AC LED Flashing

     

    Flashing of the AC LED indicates the AC voltage is low. On older model chargers, it could also mean AC voltage is too high. Low input voltage results in longer charge times, but does not affect the charge quality. High AC input voltage will prevent charging.

    1) When using an extension cord, make sure it is a grounded 3-wire 14 AWG  gauge cord of 25' length or 12 AWG gauge cord of no more than 50inch length.

    Ammeter Flashing

    A flashing ammeter indicates the charger has reduced the charging current due to highinternal temperatures during charging. This condition results in longer charge times, but does not affect the charge quality.

    1) Provide better airflow to the charger.

    2) Try to move the charger to a cooler location.

    3) Confirm that dirt or mud is not blocking the cooling fins of the charger. Clean thecharger. Rinse charger with low-pressure hose if required. Do NOT use high pressure. Do NOT use a pressure washer.

     

    80% LED Flashing

     

    This LED is used to indicate the selected charge algorithm. The 80% LED will only flash for the first 10 seconds of operation if a battery is not detected.

    1) Check battery connections.

     

    100% LED Flashing

     

    This LED flashing indicates a finish phase. This phase can last for several hours and indicates normal operation.

     

    80% & 100% LED Flashing

     

    Indicates charger is in PRC (Pack Recovery Charge) mode.

    1) Charger will revert to previous set algorithm after this charger cycle has completed.

     

    AC LED ON, Charger Won't Start Charging

    The charger must detect a good battery before it will start charging.

    1) Confirm battery connections are good.

    2) The nominal voltage for a lead acid battery is 2 V per cell. For example, a 72V battery will have 72/2 = 36 cells.

    3) If the battery voltage is greater than 2.5V per cell, the charger will not start charging.

    4) If the battery voltage is less than O.5V per cell, the charger will not start.

    5) For software revisions 0.81 or lower, the charger will not start charging if the battery voltage is less than 1 V per cell. Refer to the lower right hand comer of theback of the Product Manual to determine the software revision.

     

    (Single LED Flashing Green (0606-00623 & 0606-00723 ONLY))

    On units with a single, multi-color LED, flashing green indicates one of two things: normalcharging or battery algorithm display. The battery charge algorithm will only be displayed for ten seconds if a battery is not detected.

    1) If the LED flashes green at a rate of once per second, the charger is chargingthe battery. The duty cycle (amount of time the LED is on, compared to the amount of time the LED is oft) indicates the state of charge of the battery. If the LED is on most of the time, the battery is nearing full charge.

    2) If the LED flashes slower (one flash every 1.5 to 2 seconds), or flashes a number of times and then pauses, a battery has not been detected and the number of flashes indicates the charge algorithm. Refer to the Product Manual for more information. The battery charge algorithm will only be displayed for the first 10 seconds of operation when a battery is not detected, and then a fault will be displayed. Check all battery connections if the algorithm is displayed when abattery is connected.

    Single LED Flashing Yellow

    The flashing yellow on a single LED model indicates normal charging with reduced output current due to higher charger internal temperatures, thermal cutback. Though the charge time will be longer, the quality of the charge will not be affected.

    1) Provide better airflow to the charger.

    2) Try to move the charger to a cooler location.

    3) Confirm that dirt or mud is not blocking the cooling fins of the charger. Clean the charger. Rinse charger with low-pressure hose if required. Do not use high pressure. Do not use a pressure washer. The flashing yellow on a multi LED model indicates low AC line voltage (see also ‘FAULT LED 4 Flashes’ above).

    Single LED Flashing Red

     

    See "FAULT LED Flashing" above.

    Excessive Battery Watering Requirements or Strong Sulphur (Burnt Egg) Smell These symptoms indicate over-charging or high battery temperature. These symptoms are unlikely to be caused by too high a charge current since the maximum charge current of the charger will be small compared to even a moderately sized battery pack.

    1) Confirm that the battery pack is not too small- usually (greater than) > 50Ah.

    2) Confirm that the nominal battery voltage matches the charger output voltage.

    3) Confirm the correct battery charge algorithm. If the battery pack is new, the algorithm will need to be changed if the pack is not the same as the old one.

    Refer 5 to the Product Manual for instructions on how to determine and change the battery charge algorithm. Best Installation Method For the preferred conditions for installation, read "Determine Mounting Location" under "Installation Instructions" in the Product Manual, OR consult the GEM Service Manual.

    When mounting the charger it is best to locate it in a position best situated for maximum air flow and ventilation to keep the charger running cool at maximum efficiency.

     

    Changing the Battery Charge Algorithm

     

    The mode to change the battery charge algorithm can only be selected during the first 10 seconds of operation. Refer to “Check/Change Charging Algorithm” in the Product Manual. If the 10-second window is missed, cycle the AC power by unplugging the charger, waiting 30 seconds, and then reconnecting AC power.

    1) 0606-00423 Disconnect the charger positive connection by cycling the MDS (Master Disconnect Switch) to the OFF position. Apply AC power, observe self test LED operation. When the bar graph is flashing a single LED, turn the MDS ON for 3 seconds. Count 100, 200, 300, OFF. The LED should advance to the next number/algorithm. Continue to count in 3-second intervals until the desired algorithm is selected. When you reach this point turn the MDS to the ON position for a minimum of 10 seconds or at least until you hear a click sound. The charger has now accepted the selected algorithm and stored it in its permanent memory. Allow the charger to run a full charge cycle before vehicle operation.

    2) 0606-00523/0606-00678 - Disconnect the charger positive connection by cycling the MDS (Master Disconnect Switch) to the OFF position. Apply AC power, observe self test LED operation. The charger will indicate a flashing LED on the 80% icon. Ex. 13 = Flash, pause, Flash Flash Flash, pause repeat, etc. Turn the MDS ON for 4 seconds. Count 100, 200, 300, 400, OFF. Observe the change in the LED operation and count the lights. Continue to count in 4-second intervals until the desired algorithm is selected. When you reach this point turn the MDS to the ON position for a minimum of 10 seconds or at least until you hear a click sound. The charger has now accepted the selected algorithm and stored it in its permanent memory. Allow the charger to run a full charge cycle before vehicle operation.

    3) 0606-00623/0606-00723 - Disconnect the charger positive connection by cyclingthe MDS (Master Disconnect Switch) to the OFF position. Locate the DC-DC converter located under the dash area to the lower passenger side. Disconnect the 2-pin White/Green plug from the converter.

    *IT IS RECOMMENDED THAT THE LATEST UPGRADE SURE POWER BRAND DC CONVERTER UNIT BEINSTALLED WITH THE DELTA-Q CHARGER FOR BEST VEHICLE PERFORMANCE AND CHARGER OPERATION. Apply AC power and observeself-test LED operation. Continue with instructions following Step 2 above from charger 0606-00523.

    Which charger is the best?

     

    This depends on the application, your budget and the desired efficiency. When it charges a battery, the charger draws electrical current from the mains and supplies it to the battery. However, various losses arise during the transformation process:

     

    • Power factor: this is an expression of the relationship between the total absorbed power and the power effectively used by the charger. This will typically be about 90% for “OK” and “HF” chargers, but it falls to only about 55% for “GK” chargers. There are also “HF” chargers with an A-PFC circuit (Active Power Factor Correction) that reach 100%. Large industrial electricity consumers are often charged on the basis of the power factor, and indeed “GK” chargers use almost twice as much electricity as effectively supplied to the battery.
    • Efficiency: during the conversion from supply voltage to the battery voltage energy is also lost in the form of heat. The greater the efficiency of the charger, the less loss there will be. “HF” chargers reach ± 92%, “OK” chargers ± 87%, and “GK” chargers ±85%.
    • Intelligence: When a battery is overcharged a lot of energy is lost in the form of heat. Intelligent charging curves accurately determine how much energy a battery needs, and stop the main charging process at the right moment. Overcharging also reduces battery life.

    What are the differences?

     

    A transformer is required for reducing the higher mains voltage to the low voltage needed by the battery. Mains voltage arrives via the power plug at a frequency of 50 to 60 Hertz. At these frequencies the transformer needs a large iron core wound round with copper wire.

    A battery charger that uses a transformer of this kind with an iron core is known as a conventional or ferro-resonant charger.

     

    • The charging current of an unregulated charger (an “OK” charger) depends on the supply voltage. This is why these batteries have to be calibrated during installation, when the mains voltage is different from the nominal voltage.
    • In regulated chargers (a “GK” charger) a current control device automatically compensates for any swings in supply voltage. This control has other advantages as well, such as the ability to generate a variety of charging curves.
    • A high frequency charger (an “HF” charger) contains additional components that first convert the mains voltage to a much higher frequency (e.g. to 100,000 Hertz). The conventional transformation process takes place in the second stage, but at such high frequencies the transformer can be much smaller and needs only a small ferrite core, and far fewer windings. The picture shows you the difference between a conventional transformer and a high frequency transformer of the same power class (600W).
