The Vgate MXS 5.0 is an advanced microprocessor controlled battery charger with automatic temperature compensation built in providing unrivaled performance on batteries from 1.2Ah up to 110Ah. Features include diagnosis of battery condition to establish if it can receive and retain charge, automatic desulphation programmer and a special reconditioning function that will revive and restore deeply discharged and stratified batteries.
Detailed Unique 8-Step Charging & Maintenance Program as Following:
STEP 1 DESULPHATION
Detects sulphated batteries. Pulsing current and voltage, removes sulphate from the lead plates of the battery restoring the battery capacity.
STEP 2 SOFT START
Tests if the battery can accept charge. This step prevents that charging proceeds with a defect battery.
STEP 3 BULK
Charging with maximum current until approximately 80% battery capacity.
STEP 4 ABSORPTION
Charging with declining current to maximize up to 100% battery capacity.
STEP 5 ANALYSE
Tests if the battery can hold charge. Batteries that can not hold charge may need to be replaced.
STEP 6 RECOND
Choose the Recond program to add the Recond step to the charging process.
During the Recond step voltage increases to create controlled gassing in the battery.
Gasing mixes the battery acid and gives back energy to the battery.
STEP 7 FLOAT
Maintaining the battery voltage at the maximum level by providing a constant voltage charge.
STEP 8 PULSE
Maintaining the battery at 95–100% capacity. The charger monitors the battery voltage and gives a pulse when necessary to keep the battery fully charged.
