Wrong thread but its probably a FET servo wire, needed for servos that require 7.2v to operate. You can make sure of this by taking a multimeter, measuring between that wire and the negative wire coming off the servo or the battery. (someone correct me if I'm wrong).

Default Temp Charging

I've read the manual but must be doing something wrong anyway. What I really want to do is temp charge at 6 amps until the batteries reach 45 degrees C. As I understand it, that can only be done in CTX mode.

I've set step 1 to charge at 6 amps for 100 mA, step 2 to charge at 6 amps for 150 mA and originally set the temp cut-off and the voltage cut-off to 45 degrees F and 0.03 respectively.

With those settings, the charge cut off by the peak detect with a temp reading of well below 45 degrees C. So, over the coarse of the day I moved the peak detect up to 0.14 in an attempt to achieve a temp cut-off. When I got to 0.14, the unit continued to charge even after 45 degrees C was surpassed.

What am I doing wrong? As I said, all I want to do is charge my packs until the temp reading is 45 degrees C. If it matters, all of the packs are 6-cell and all were discharged to 5.4 volts prior to starting the charge. Thanks.

CTX charge is not neccessary to do this. All you have to do is initiate a regular "peak charge" (linear charge) at 6 amps, turn the delta peak all the way up (99 I believe), and set the temp cut to 45 deg .

If it is a US unit, then it will have a silver sticker on it indicating so.

Sometimes we have also noticed different languages on the internal components.

Default lithium charging

Can someone provide the charging specs in the lithium mode?

I understand that there is a 1 amp limit (I'm only using this for tranmitter packs) but my Cell Master appears to limit the current as the cells reach capacity; down to .1 and .2 amp as I approach 12.3V on a 3-cell pack; what I assume to be the voltage cut on a 3-cell pack.

Is this "ramp down" normal in the lithium mode or does my charger require service?

Thanks,
Ralph

The Team Orion Advantage charger does the same. At least on that charger it is supposed to be that way according to the manual...

Default Charge Error

I just had a charge terminate, the blue light is blinking twice per second and there is a message that says SUP on top row just to the left of the charge capacity number. What does SUP mean? Thanks.

sorry to dig up an old thread....

But i am trying some different things with my IB4200s.

Like on the SMC website they say to charge 4cell with a 5mv cut off per cell 20mv in total (0.02v delta peak) and for some reason i can't set the charger to 0.02, it either goes 0.00, then jumps to 0.03v, can anyone see if their cellmaster does this? as it is quite annoying
