charger not working

Postby RussK on Tue Jul 26, 2016 3:13 pm

I purchased a PSC55-12 smart charger. I have a remote cabin with 12 volt lighting. When i installed the new charger it didn't charge and I have been unable to make it work. We supply 110V power to the charger with a generator. I'm not sure if it is wired wrong or defective. How do I test the charger?

Disconnect the charger from the batteries. Apply AC to the unit. You should measure 13-14 Volts on the output.

If it works that way then you'll have to look further. What size is the generator?

We are using 2 Honda 2000kw generators coupled together. As soon as I can get someone out to the cabin, i will check the voltage. Thanks RussK

We brought the charger to town.
Plug it in: no voltage at all.
City power or genset.

There are a couple automotive style fuses in the back of the unit that you could check.

When and from whom did you buy the charger?

Fuses seem good. We purchased it from AmplePower.com in April of this year.
