3 ULGD 3.8 A1 GB IE ■ Do not use the charger for charging non- rechargeable batteries. ■ Do not use the charger for charging lithium-ion batteries. ■ Place the removed battery in a well-ventilated location during charging. ■ The automatic mode of operation and usage restrictions are explained below in these operat- ing instructions. DANGER OF ELECTRIC SHOCK! ■ Do not operate the appliance with a damaged cable, supply cord or mains plug. A damaged power cord causes danger to life by electric shock. ■ If the supply cord is damaged, it must be replaced by the manufacturer, its service agent or similarly qualiﬁed persons in order to avoid a hazard. ■ Before connecting to the power, ensure that the power connection is earthed, is 230 V ∼ 50 Hz, and is 16 A fused and equipped with an RCCB switch (residual current circuit breaker) in accordance with the current regulations! ■ Disconnect the charger from the grid, before you make or break connections to the battery. ■ First, connect the clamp that is not connected to the bodywork. Then connect the other clamp to the bodywork, away from battery and fuel pipe. Only after this, connect the charger to the grid. ■ After charging, disconnect the charger from the grid. Only after this remove the clamp from the bodywork. Following this, remove the clamp from the battery. DANGER OF EXPLOSION AND FIRE HAZARD! Protect yourself from a highly explosive hydrogen- oxygen reaction! ■ Ensure that during charge and charge retention procedures, there are no naked lights (ﬂames, cinders or sparks)! ■ Ensure that the plus cable does not come into contact with fuel lines (e.g. petrol pipe)! ■ Ensure that there is no possibility of ignition of ex- plosive or ﬂammable substances, such as petrol or solvents, while using charger! ■ Ensure that there is adequate ventilation during charging. DANGER OF CHEMICAL BURNS! ■ Wear protective glasses! Wear protective gloves! If eyes or skin has come into contact with battery acid, rinse the aﬀected body region oﬀ with a large amount of clean water and consult a doc- tor straight away! ■ Avoid causing a short circuit when connecting the charger to the battery. Connect the negative pole connector cable only to the negative bat- tery or to the body work. Connect the positive pole connector cable only to the plus pole of the battery! ■ Do not place the charger close to ﬁre, heat or to places with long-term exposure to tempera- tures over 50 °C! ■ Ensure that no fuel lines,electric cables, hydrau- lic or water pipes are damaged by the screws during assembly of the charger! ■ Do not cover the charger with any objects! ■ Protect the electrical contact surfaces of the bat- tery from short circuiting! ■ Only use the charger for charging and for charge retention of 6 V / 12 V lead batteries. Do not charge frozen batteries.

4 ULGD 3.8 A1 GB IE Operation Before use ♦ Before connecting the charger, the operating instructions must be observed. ♦ Furthermore, the instructions of the vehicle man- ufacturer regarding a permanently connected vehicle battery must be observed. Secure the vehicle, switch oﬀ the ignition. ♦ Clean the battery poles. Take care that while doing so, your eyes do not come into contact with the dirt. ♦ Ensure suﬃcient ventilation. Connecting ♦ Before starting the charging or trickle charging procedure on a permanently installed battery in a vehicle, ﬁrst disconnect the negative terminal connecting cable (black) of the vehicle from the negative terminal of the battery. The negative terminal of the battery is usually connected to the vehicle’s coachwork. ♦ Connect the positive pole clamp (red) of the charger to the positive pole of the battery. ♦ Connect the negative pole clamp (black) to the negative pole of the battery. ♦ Connect the mains cable of the charger to the mains socket. ♦ The battery voltage display shows the cur- rent battery voltage. ♦ Should the connection of the clamps be swapped, the LED „reverse connection“ lights up. Disconnect ♦ Disconnect the appliance from the mains supply. ♦ Remove the negative pole clamp (black) from the negative pole of the battery. ♦ Remove the positive pole clamp (red) from the positive pole of the battery. Measuring STANDBY / Battery voltage After connection to the grid, the appliance is on STANDBY. The standby display lights up. When the clamps are connected, the battery voltage is shown in the LCD (voltage display ). The segments of the condition display are empty. If the voltage is below 3.8 V or above 15 V, the battery will not be charged. The display brieﬂy shows the error message „Err“. The appliance goes on standby. 6 V battery: If the voltage range of the battery is measured as between 3.7–7.3 V, only program 1 can be selected. 12 V batteries: If a battery is recognised in the critical voltage range of between 7.3–10.5 V, the appliance checks whether a fully charged 6 V battery, or a discharged 12 V battery is present. After pressing the program selection button to select a program, the appliance carries out a control measurement for about 90 sec. The display shows: If after about 90 sec. between 7.3–7.5 V are detected, the 12 V battery is defective. The appliance goes on standby. Revitalising If after about 90 sec. between 7.5–10.5 V are detected, a 12 V battery is present. Charging starts with a pulse charge for revitalis- ing. The voltage display ﬂashes. Once 10.5 V are reached, the appliance switches to the other charge steps. Revitalising is the same for all the 12 V charge programmes.

5 ULGD 3.8 A1 GB IE Program selection NOTES ► If a battery is detected in the voltage range of between 3.7–7.3 V, the programmes 2–3–4 can be selected. The charging process takes place automatically. Depending on the selected program, the characteristic charge curve is monitored for voltage, time and temperature. Included are the diagnostics program, revitalis- ing mode and retention charge. (See principle representation program 3 Fig. C) Program max. (V) max. (A) 1 6 V 7,3 V 0,8 A 2 * 14,4 V 0,8 A 3 * 14,4 V 3,8 A 4 * 14,7 V 3,8 A Program 1 „6 V“ (7,3 V / 0,8 A) For charging 6 V batteries with a capacity of less than 14 Ah. ♦ Press the program selection button , to select program 1. The symbol „6 V“ is displayed on the LCD. During charging, the charge display ﬂashes and shows the progress of the charge procedure (1–4 bars). When the battery is fully charged, the condition display shows 4 bars. The ﬂashing stops and the appliance automati- cally switches to retention charge. Program 2 „12 V“ (14,4 V / 0,8 A) For charging 12 V batteries with a capacity of less than 14 Ah. ♦ Press the program selection button , to select program 2. The symbol is displayed on the LCD. During charging, the charge display ﬂashes and shows the progress of the charge procedure (1–4 bars). When the battery is fully charged, the condition display shows 4 bars. The ﬂashing stops and the appliance automati- cally switches to retention charge. Program 3 „12 V“ (14,4 V / 3,8 A) For charging 12 V batteries with a capacity of between 14 Ah–120 Ah. ♦ Press the program selection button , to select program 3. The symbol is displayed on the LCD. During charging, the charge display ﬂashes and shows the progress of the charge procedure (1–4 bars). When the battery is fully charged, the condition display shows 4 bars. The ﬂashing stops and the appliance automatically switches to retention charge. Program 4 „12 V“ (14,7 V / 3,8 A) For charging 12 V batteries with a capacity of between 14 Ah–120 Ah under cold conditions or for charging AGM batteries. ♦ Press the program selection button , to select program 4. NOTE ► This program may start with a minute delay. The symbol is displayed on the LCD. During charging, the charge display ﬂashes and shows the progress of the charge procedure (1–4 bars). When the battery is fully charged, the condition display shows 4 bars. The ﬂashing stops and the appliance automatically switches to retention charge. Retention charge As described under programmes, this appliance features the automatic retention charge. Depending on the voltage drop of the battery, caused by selfdischarge, the appliance reacts with diﬀerent charge currents. The battery can remain connected to the charger for longer periods of time. Appliance protection function The charger switches the electronics oﬀ and switches the system instantly to the basic setting, as soon as there is an abnormal situation, such as short circuit, critical voltage drop during charging, broken circuit or swapped connection of the connector clamps is detected. Should the appliance become too hot during charg- ing, the output current is automatically reduced. This protects the appliance from damage.
