Battery charger

For lead-acid batteries 1,2-120Ah
Users Manual and a guide to professional battery charging For Starter/Deep Cycle batteries


Congratulations on your purchase of your new professional MULTIXS3600 Switch Mode Charger with Pulse Maintenance. MULTIXS3600 is a member of a family of professional chargers from CTEK Sweden AB. It represents the state-of-the-art technology for battery charging. A MULTIXS3600 will prolong the lifetime of your battery. Read this user manual and follow the instructions carefully before using the charger. The charger is designed for lead-acid batteries from 1,2-120Ah. Do not use the charger for any other purpose. Use safety glasses and turn your head away when connecting or disconnecting a battery. Battery acid is corosive. Rinse immediately with water if acid comes into contact with skin or eyes. Seek medical advice. Make sure that the cable is not being pinched or in contact with warm surfaces or sharp edges. While charging, a battery can emit explosive gases, so it is important to avoid sparks in the immediate area. Always provide for proper ventilation during charging. Avoid covering the charger. Make sure that the electrical cable does not come into contact with water. Never charge a frozen battery. Never charge a damaged battery. Do not place the charger on the battery while charging. The electrical connection must fulfil the national heavy current requirements. Check the cabling in the charger before use. Make sure there are no cracks in the cabling or in the protective covering. A charger with damaged cables may not be used. Always check that the charger has gone over to maintenance charging mode before leaving the charger unattended and connected for long periods. If the charger had not gone over to maintenance charging within 3 days, this is an indication of a problem. In this case the charger must be disconnected manually. All batteries fail sooner or later. A battery that fails during charging is normally taken care of by the chargers advanced control, but certain uncommon errors in the battery can still arise. Dont leave the battery charger unattended for a longer period of time. Only mount the charger on a flat surface. This equipment may not be used by children or by those who can not read and understand the manual if they are not supervised by a responsible person who can guarantee that the battery charger is being used in a safe manner. Store and use the battery charger out of the reach of children. Make sure that children do not play with the battery charger.


MULTIXS3600 can easily be configured to charge many different types of 12V lead-acid batteries; wet batteries, MF, AGM och for most GEL-batteries. The following recommendations should, however, only be seen as guidelines. When in doubt, always consult the battery manufacturer for further instructions. Settings are made by pressing the MODE-button and stepping forward by pressing the button one step at a time, releasing the button when the required mode is reached. Mode 14.4V/0.8A This mode is normally used for <14Ah batteries. Mode 14.4V/3.6A Normal setting for wet batteries, MF and for most GEL batteries. Mode 14.7V/3.6A This setting is recommended for batteries at temperatures below 5C. It is also recommended for many AGM batteries. This setting is not recommended for maintenance charging when the temperature at times exceeds +5C. In this case, the 14.4V/3.6A mode is recommended.
Charging batteries mounted in a vehicle: 1. The power cord should be disconnected before connecting or disconnecting the battery leads. 2. dentify the pole that is grounded (attached to the chassis). Ground is normally connected to the negative I terminal. 3. harging a negatively grounded battery. Connect the red wire to the positive pole of the battery and the black C cable to the vehicles chassis. Be careful not to connect the black cable in the vicinity of a fuel pipe or the battery. 4. harging a positively grounded battery. Connect the black wire to the negative pole of the battery and the red C cable to the vehicle's chassis. Be careful not to connect the red cable in the vicinity of a fuel pipe or the battery. Charging of a battery not connected to a vehicle: 1. The power cord should be disconnected before connecting or disconnecting the battery leads. 2. Connect the red wire to the positive pole of the battery and the black cable to the negative pole.


Connecting the provided cables with eyelet terminals: Make sure that the cable is not being pinched or in contact with warm surfaces or sharp edges. When the cable is mounted on the battery, it should not be connected to the charger. Connect the eyelet terminals to the battery's poles - the red cable to the positive pole and the black cable to the negative pole. After this, the quick contact can be connected. Reverse Polarity Protection If the battery cables are connected incorrectly, the reverse polarity protection will make sure that the charger and the battery are not damaged. In this case, the red warning lamp (0) will be lit. Start charging 1. et the proper charging mode for the battery by pushing the Mode button until the correct setting is lit. Choosing S settings for your battery is described under BATTERY TYPES AND SETTINGS. 2. hen you are sure the battery leads are correctly placed, connect the power cord to the power outlet to begin W charging. If the battery leads are wrongly connected, the pole-changing switch will ensure the battery and charger are not damaged. The fault indicator will light. In which case start from the beginning again. will now indicate charging or the maintenance lamp will indicate that the battery is 3. he charging lamp T fully charged. If the voltage drops the charger sends a pulse to the battery. The length of the pulse depends on how much the voltage has dropped. The charger can be connected for months. 4. f nothing happens: If the voltage indicator is lit but no other lamp is lit there could be a bad connection to the I battery or chassis or the battery could be faulty. Check the wall power outlet. If you experience problems: start with the sensitive connection between the battery clamps and the charger. 5. harging can be stopped at any time by disconnecting the supply cord or by setting the charger on Standby. C Always remove the power cord from the power outlet before disconnecting the battery leads from a battery in a vehicle. When you stop charging a battery in a vehicle, remove the cable from the chassis before removing the other cable. 6. If the charger lamp and the maintenance-charger lamp are flashing alternately, the reason for this is due to: An interruption during charging, due to a loose connection or because the battery has ceased to work. The battery has become sulphated. If the lamps flash for more than 30 minutes, this indicates that the battery is dead and needs to be replaced. If there is an interval of more than 10 seconds between the flashes, this indicates that the battery has a high self-discharge rate and may need to be replaced.


MULTIXS3600 operates in a four step fully automatic cycle IUoUp. It begins charging with an almost constant current (0.8A or 3.6A) until maximum voltage (14.4V or 14.7V) is reached. The charger changes mode at this point. It locks the voltage at maximum level and allows the current to drop. The MULTIXS3600 switches automatically to pulse maintenance charging when the current drops to 0.4A. The charging cycle restarts if the battery voltage drops to 12.9V.
Desulphation - Desulphation with pulsing for sulphated batteries. Bulk - Charging where 80% of the energy is returned. The charger delivers an almost constant current until the battery voltage reaches maximum level. Absorption - Charging up to almost 100%. The charge current falls and the voltage is kept constant at the maximum level. Pulse - Maintenance phase, where the charger delivers a pulse if the battery voltage drops. Charging varies between 95% and 100%. The battery receives a pulse when the voltage reduces. Keep the battery in good condition when not in use. The charger can be connected for months.
MULTIXS3600 is protected from being overheated. The power will be reduced if the ambient temperature is raised. The charger is maintenance free. Note that disassembly of the charger is not permitted and will void the warranty. If the power cord is damaged, the charger must be left to the reseller for maintenance. The case can be cleaned with a soft damp cloth and mild cleanser. The charger should be disconnected from the power while cleaning. MULTIXS3600 is delivered with a set of battery leads with battery pole clamps and a set of battery leads with eyelet terminals.
