FC Series Float Chargers
FOR SLA BATTERIES
Features Operating Characteristics
• I.C. based voltage and current regulation Float chargers are designed to provide optimum life for
designed for sealed (valve-regulated) lead- batteries used in standby applications where the current
acid batteries is continuous. The chargers deliver a constant voltage of
• Useable on domestic and overseas input 2.25 to 2.30 volts per cell, which allows the battery to seek
voltages from 110VAC – 60 Hz to 240VAC its own current level and maintain itself in a fully charged
– 50 Hz. See the charger selection guide condition.
• Float voltage charging for efficient, care-free This series is best suited for burglar and fire alarm
and safe operation equipment, emergency lighting, memory protection or UPS
• LED indicates charge mode systems where the battery serves as backup power to the
• Lightweight wall mounted plug-in design with
screw type output terminals

Recharge time depends on the depth of the preceding discharge and the output current of the charger.
To determine the approximate recharge time of a fully discharged battery, divide the battery’s amp. hrs.
by the rated output current of the charger and multiply the resulting number of hours by a factor of 1.75 to
compensate for the declining output current during the charge cycle. If the amount of amp. hrs. discharged
from the battery is known, use it instead of the battery’s capacity to make the calculation.
To ensure safe and efficient operation always refer to our Charger Operating Instructions, as published on
Power-Sonic does not offer chargers for batteries with capacities higher than 100 AH. If you have any queries or
difficulties in locating a suitable charger for batteries above 100AH, our Technical department will be happy to help.
