Is it possible to user the Smart Charge Manager current limits to perform equalization? I have a PSC55-12 charger with a SCM charging a bank of 2 8D's (of 276AH each). Can I just install a shunt and connect the sides of it to SHC and SHG on the SCM, set the S1 DIP switch for the appropriate amount of current and then assert LIM1 and ABS?
I'm calculating the equalization current required as follows:
The required current for equalization at 5% of the bank's 20 hour capacity = (275A * 2) * 0.05 = 27.5A
Therefore the required output of the charger will be = (27.5A/55A) * 100 = 50%
...and S1 should be set for the current limit of 50% by setting switches 5-7 off and 8 to on.
I'm not certain if asserting the ABS input will drive the SCM to the LIM1 setting if the battery is fully charged. If not, is there a way to tell the SCM to drive the charger up to the set current limit while I monitor the battery voltage to see if it reaches my equalization target?
