What does the charge curve look like for these chargers w/o the smart charge regulator?

It goes to the setpoint and stays there. You can choose the higher or lower setpoint.

Ok... maybe I am asking the wrong question. Roy Meyer helped me design and install this system maybe 7 years ago, and life has kept me from the boat until now, so I am having to start over in a few places.

I am pretty sure (99%) I have one of these (Power Supply/Charger, 15 Amps, 12-Volts #PSC15-12), I will go down to the (long neglected) boat and double check Its stand alone, so not integrated into the EMON, and I have no smart charge manager. Is it acting as a 2 stage charger, 3 stage? Is it even safe to plug into gel batteries? What is the factory set set point? How would I adjust it? Is there a pdf manuel for this charger?

As a stand-alone charger, it operates with a bulk cycle followed by a constant voltage, which is high or low depending on the jumper.

It is safe long term for gels on the lower setting.

Thanks, that's what I needed to know.
