              4.OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS

              IMPORTANT, READ BEFORE CONTINUING.
              Should an ERROR CODE appear or the "READY" remain displayed after a battery has been installed, refer to the troubleshooting table, "Table 1", for the appropriate action and interpretation.

              TABLE 1

              E01

              Momentary break of battery contacts with Analyzer contacts.

              E02

              Indicates that the battery is out of acceptable voltage range for that battery, either too high or too low.  If the battery being evaluated is new or hasn't been used for a couple of months, an E02, may occur during the charge or cycles modes.  In that situation, it is  recommended to put the battery in the Analyzer, in the CHARGE mode, this may have to be repeated two or three times.  Once, you have completed a Charge mode, it is recommended to condition the battery by placing it in the Analyzer in the cycle three mode.  If the battery has been used on a regular basis and the E02 is displayed, then the battery in all probability has a shorted cell or cells within it.  It is recommended that you repeat the Cycle 3 mode one more time to ensure that you are not discarding a good battery.  Should the E02 appear again, then discard the battery or return it to the manufacturer, if it still under warranty.

              E03

              The E03 error indicates that a battery has a diode in the discharge path preventing it from discharging.  The battery should be returned to the manufacturer.

              READY
              If a battery is placed in the Analyzer cup as per the Battery Specification Sheet, and the display continues to show "READY", either, the battery has been place in the Analyzer cup such that the contacts of the battery are not making contact with the contacts of the Analyzer. In which case simply reverse the battery.  Or if the battery has been correctly positioned in the cup, then the battery is open and should be properly disposed of.

              5- CHARGE MODE

              WILL FULLY CHARGE THE BATTERY.
              *REFER TO THE "ADAPTER-CUP" BATTERY SPECIFICATION SHEET FOR ANALYZER I, III & VI FOR PROPER INSTALLATION OF THE BATTERY INTO THE ANALYZER. Install the battery in the "Adapter-cup".  The display associated with that "Adapter-cup" will now display a flashing "CHARGE", after 5 seconds, the flashing "CHARGE" will stop flashing.

              AnUM Gra51.jpg (5841 bytes)

              Once, the battery is fully charged, the display will show a flashing "READY" along with a flashing "CHARGE" indication.

              AnUM Gra52.jpg (2652 bytes)

              The battery may be left in the "Analyzer " after it has been fully charge.   In this situation, the battery will be in the trickle charge state until the battery is removed from the "Analyzer".  When the battery is removed from the "Analyzer", after has been charged, the display will then read "READY".

              AnUM Gra53.jpg (1842 bytes)

              6- DISCHARGE MODE

              *DISCHARGE THE BATTERY TO 1V/CELL AND LEAVE IT IN THE DISCHARGED STATE.
              During the discharge mode of operation, the display will show the capacity of the battery in mAh. This function is very important when evaluating a BATTERY CHARGER, to see if it is functioning properly. Refer to the Battery Specification Sheet for proper installation of the battery into "Analyzer".  Install the battery into the "Adapter cup".   The display associated with that "Adapter-cup", will now display a flashing "CHARGE". *While the display is flashing, press the "FUNCTION PUSH-BUTTON" once.  You will see a flashing "DISCHARGE".

              AnUM Gra61.jpg (6968 bytes)

              After about five seconds, the display will stop flashing, and will show "0", "MILLIAMPS" and "DISCHARGE".

              AnUM Gra62.jpg (8055 bytes)

              At this time the "Analyzer" will start discharging the battery, displaying the capacity of the battery that has been withdrawn from the battery in mAh.  It should be noted that as the "Analyzer" continues to discharge the battery, the number displayed increases.   This continues until the battery has been discharged to 1v/cell. At this point, the display will show a flashing "READY", the capacity of the battery in "mAh" and "DISCHARGE".  The battery is now totally discharged.   When the battery is removed from the "Analyzer", after it has been "Discharged", the display will read "READY".

              7- ANALYZE MODE (CYCLE 1)

              "CYCLE 1": Charge/10 minute pause/Discharge/Recharge, is used to evaluate the state of the battery, and gives you the actual capacity of the battery in mAh.
              * REFER TO THE BATTERY SPECIFICATION SHEET FOR ANALYZER I, III & VI for proper installation of the battery into the Analyzer. *Install the battery into the "Adapter-cup".  The display associated with that "adapter-cup" will display a flashing "CHARGE".
              *While the display is flashing press the "FUNCTION PUSH-BUTTON" twice, you will see "DISCHARGE", then "CYCLE 1".

              AnUM Gra71.jpg (62942 bytes)

               

              AFTER 5 SECONDS
              At this time the Analyzer will start discharging the battery and displaying the capacity of the battery that has been withdrawn from the battery in MILLIAMP-HOURS.  It should be noted that as the Analyzer continues to discharge the battery, the number displayed increases. This will continue until the battery has been discharged to 1volt/cell.  At this time the Analyzer will go into the recharge portion of Cycle 1, and the display will replace the word "DISCHARGE" with "RECHARGE".

              After the battery is Recharged, the display will show a flashing READY, along with CYCLE 1 and the capacity of the battery in MILLIAMP HOURS.  One should reference the BATTERY SPECIFICATION SHEET FOR THE ANALYZER I, III & VI to see if the battery meets minimum capacity levels.  Typically the battery should be within 80% of the rated capacity after one year. When the battery is removed from the Analyzer, after CYCLE 1 has been completed, the display will read READY.

              AnUM Gra91.jpg (6810 bytes)

              8- CONDITION MODE

              CYCLE2,CYCLE3 and CYCLE4, are just multiples of CYCLE1, and are intended to exercise (CONDITION) the battery, eliminating the "Memory effect" or "Voltage Depression", along with making the battery more efficient.  At the end of each DISCHARGE portion of each CYCLE a new reading will appear in the display, giving the capacity for that particular CYCLE in mAh. * REFER TO THE BATTERY SPECIFICATION SHEET FOR ANALYZER I,III & VI for proper installation of the battery into the Analyzer.
              *Install the battery into the "Adapter-cup". The display associated with that "adapter-cup" will display a flashing "CHARGE".
              *While the display is flashing press the "FUNCTION PUSH-BUTTON" three times for CYCLE 2, four times for CYCLE 3, five times for CYCLE 4.   Each time the FUNCTION BUTTON is depressed, the following sequence will be displayed DISCHARGE, CYCLE1, CYCLE 2, CYCLE 3, CYCLE 4.

              AnUM Gra101.jpg (34905 bytes)

              SET UP After 5 seconds, the display will stop flashing, and will show "CHARGE" and depending on which CYCLE you choose,"2,3 or 4", will appear directly below the CHARGE indication. The Analyzer is now in the Charge state, after the battery has been charged, the Analyzer will go into a ten minute pause.  The reason for this pause is to allow the battery to stabilize prior to Discharging the battery.  At this time the display will show the number ten, and start counting down to zero, this will take ten minutes.  The display will also show DISCHARGE and the CYCLE number you have selected.  At the end of the ten minutes pause, along with the DISCHARGE and CYCLE number you, have selected.  The "MILLIAMP HOURS" appears on the display as well.

              AnUM Gra111.jpg (22870 bytes)

              At this time the "Analyzer" will star discharging the battery and displaying the capacity of the battery that has been withdrawn from the battery in MILLIAMP HOURS.  It should be noted that as the "Analyzer" continues to discharge the battery, the number displayed increases.  This will continue until the battery has been discharged to 1volt/cell.  At this time, the Analyzer will go into the Recharge portion of the Cycle #, and the display will show CHARGE instead of DISCHARGE.  All other readings will be as they were prior to RECHARGE.  Once the battery is recharged, the Analyzer will go into a ten minute pause again, and the cycle number will be reduced by one. The Analyzer will repeat the Cycle mode until it has completed the number of Cycles, that were originally entered.

              AnUM Gra112.jpg (17887 bytes)

              At which time, the display will show a flashing READY, the last mAh reading and the number of Cycles completed.  The Analyzer will now be in the trickle charge state.   When the battery is removed from the cup, the display will read READY.

              AnUM Gra121.jpg (7510 bytes)

              9-AUTO MODE

              This function is intended for life testing, for qualifying new vendors of cells and batteries. The "Cycle" function is repeated until it is stopped manually.  After each Cycle is completed, the display will show the capacity of the battery for that Cycle.  This function is very useful when used in conjunction with our optional Computer Interface to form a Data Base to maintain a history of the evaluations.
              * REFER TO THE BATTERY SPECIFICATION SHEET FOR ANALYZER I,III & VI for proper installation of the battery into the Analyzer.
              * Install the battery into the "Adapter-cup".  The display associated with that "adapter-cup" will display a flashing "CHARGE". *While the display is flashing press the "FUNCTION PUSH-BUTTON" six times.   Each time the FUNCTION PUSH-BUTTON is depressed, the display will read DISCHARGE, then CYCLE 1, then CYCLE 2, then CYCLE 3, then CYCLE 4 and AUTO.

              AnUM Gra131.jpg (43699 bytes)

              The follow sequence will occur: "Charge/10 minute pause/Discharge/Recharge". The Analyzer will now repeat this procedure until the battery is removed from the Analyzer.  During this process the Analyzer will display the capacity of the battery after each Discharge phase.  To determine how many Cycles have been performed, simply depress the FUNCTION PUSH-BUTTON located below the display. The number of Cycles that has been completed will be displayed. Release the FUNCTION PUSH-BUTTON and the Analyzer will resume the AUTO function state. When the battery is removed from the Analyzer, the display will read READY.
