Powering ON & Systems Check

Download this document in pdf format.

 

CAUTION: To proceed with this section, the 'INSTALLATION' must have first been completed.

 

1.       Make sure the car engine is switched OFF and all CBs are OFF.

2.       Start Battery Voltage meter:

 

a.       Check the SCP and make sure the Start Battery Voltage meter is reading the main Alternator Battery.

3.       Smartgauge:

 

a.       Check the Smartgauge and make sure you can read both main and service batteries.

4.       LED Switch

 

a.       Pushing the LED button on the SCP switches ON/OFF the illuminating LED in the handle of the flap, as well as the LED in the Start Battery Voltage meter.

5.       Inverter (Critical Consumers):

 

a.       Make sure the 3-way switch on the back of the inverter is in the ‘REMOTE’ position.

b.      Switch ON CB#7 for the inverter.

c.       On the SCP, press the ON/OFF switch on the CR-6 inverter remote. You should see the remote indicate that the inverter has been turned ON.

d.      Try plugging a device in the AC outlet and see if it works. The AC outlet should provide information on the amount of power consumed.

e.      When satisfied, press the ON/OFF switch on the CR-6 inverter remote again, to turn the inverter OFF.

f.        Finally Switch OFF CB#7.

6.       D250S & Smartpass:

 

a.       Switch ON CB#4 & CB#5.
 

b.      The D250S & Smartpass indicate they are switched ON.

Fig.1

c.       Switch ON CB#6.

d.      On the SCP connect a 12V device in one of the two DC-out sockets and start it.

e.      The Smartpass indicates power going out to a DC consumer.

Fig.2

f.        Start the car engine.

g.       In about 5 seconds you should see that the car alternator is bypassing the Service Battery Bank and is solely supplying your DC-out sockets.

Fig.3

h.      You should also notice that the Service Battery Bank is now being charged by the alternator through the D250S (Indicates up to 20A charging).

Fig.4

i.        If the service battery can accept current over the 20A that the D250S can provide then the extra power (up to an additional 80A) is channelled through the Smartpass (Indicates up to 60A charging).

Fig.5

j.        If the service battery is pulling over 60A while being charged, then an extra LED lights up to indicate this (Indicates up to 100A charging).

Fig.6

k.       When the Service Battery Bank is nearing full capacity when being charged by the alternator you should see that the Smartpass LED#1 switches off. This indicates that less than 20A are needed to charge the service batteries (see Fig.4).
However when the Service Battery Bank is completely full, the D250S enters Float/Pulse maintenance mode where the Service Battery Bank light starts flashing.

Fig.7

l.        Switch off the engine.

m.    Charging turns off and the loads are again powered by the Service Battery Bank (see Fig.2).

 

n.      When the Service Battery Bank is discharged to below 11.5V, Smartpass disconnects the DC out line with a steady ERROR-LED & flashing LED#4 indications.
When you see this indication, you should immediately start your engine or connect your solar panels or connect to an AC power outlet. DC output is reconnected automatically when the Service Battery Bank is charged to over 12V (see Fig.2).
NOTE: This indication can also mean that there is too much current draw/high temperature, by your consumers on the DC-out line. Therefore, check your Service Battery Bank voltage before you take any action.

Fig 8

o.      If your Service Battery Bank voltage is higher than the Alternator Battery then the Smartpass will pulse charge the later.

Fig.9

p.      Connect AC power to the SCP. This should start the M300 charger. On the M300 top face, choose ‘NORMAL’ mode. The same indication as before is seen on the Smartpass (see Fig.9). However the AC Input meter on the SCP should be showing you exactly how much power is going into both battery banks. Check the voltage on each bank using the Smartgauge or the Start Battery Voltage meter– it should now be much higher than before and close to 14.4V.
When satisfied, switch off power to the AC input socket and remove it from the SCP.
The next time you charge your system, the M300 will start in ‘NORMAL’ mode automatically. Charge your system regularly, every 3 months or so, and also immediately after a workout.


q.      Connect a solar panel to the Solar Input socket on the SCP and place the panel in the sun.

r.        The same indication remains on the Smartpass as before while an additional indication is seen on the D250S.

Fig.10

7.       Parallel Switch

 

a.       Make sure the engine is off and that the BEP 701-MD is set in automatic mode.

b.      Check the voltages for each battery bank on the Smartpass.
You should see 2 different voltages displayed.

c.       Push the Parallel button on the SCP. This should switch ON ‘Battery Parallel Mode’ via the BEP 701-MD Motorized Battery Switch. Check to verify that the BEP 701-MD has turned to Auto ON mode.

d.      Check the voltages for each battery bank on the Smartpass.
Allow up to 10 seconds for the charge to equalize. You should see the same voltage displayed for both banks.

e.      Push the Parallel button on the SCP. This should switch OFF ‘Battery Parallel Mode’ via the BEP 701-MD Motorized Battery Switch. Check to verify that the BEP 701-MD has turned to Auto OFF mode.

f.        If you have a wireless remote control for your X6-Electromod, repeat the above steps using it.

 

The M300, Smartpass, D250S, PureSine1500, Smartgauge and LED meters have a number of error codes that may be indicated at times on their equipment. For a complete list of these as well as more detailed information on these devices please refer to their respective manual.

To ensure that your AGM batteries enjoy a long productive life, make sure you keep them fully charged at all times, especially after a good workout.
Every 3 months or so you should also perform an equalizing charge to remove any sulphate build up on the plates.

For more detailed information on each individual module,
please refer to their respective manual.


Congratulations! The X6-Electromod is now fully operational!
