I have the manual, but can't find it on the website.

The resistor goes from the lower contact to the upper contact of your 6th cell. And the 3rd alligator clip goes to the upper 5th cell itself. You can connect it to the contact pin but that way it's less accurate, so clip it to the negative pole on the 5th cell.

Be sure to have version 1.06c or higher!

This cable came included with my ICC that i have recently purchased in the UK.

Hope that makes sense
Hi, an answer:
But is a linear wires or there are electronics components between the two crocodiles? I say this because the pictures of the Y cables sold by spintec is strange.

Do you think I can made in my home the cable?

Can you send me a picture of installation or a wiring design? I've a doubt....


(Sorry for my bad english... i'm italian and in Italy I speak italian language )

Default delta peak cut off

A couple of ideas that you can check - Check your minimum temperature setting. If this is too high as per my previous the cells will not even think about delta peak until they hit this temperature. - Check your maximum temperature from the reports and experiance it needs to be somewhere around the 50 deg C mark - Make sure your delta peak is not set too high a lot of people are moving to sub 3Mv peak ( generally 1-2Mv )

The batts in the tray will always get hotter than on a conventional charger as they do not have the airflow around them, they are encased in the charger. This was always the theory behind those stalks that you rest your batt in on the orion advantage. Ths is wh a lto of peole have taken to using half of the Much more batt cooler (v1) or integy version to create some air flow and help remove heat from above the cells ( not blowing on the cells ). This seems to help the most and ensures a pretty acurate and even temperature across the pack throughout the charge.

Hope this is of some help
Hi Andy

How did you get your charger to cut off at delta peak with a min temp lock out of 35c?

Thanks

Tony

I _think_ there is a resistor between the 2 clips connecting the + and - of the 6th cell and a wire between cell 5 and 6. I can measure it when I get home.

Have you tried asking Eric by e-mailing him directly?

Default Delta Peak

Tony,

I have cheated a little !! Sorry !!!

Following my original queries I have an unoffical update to my charger that allows the min temp lockout to be adjusted so mine is set a little lower than 35 deg.

I have been assured by Erik that this will form part of the next firmware update released

Regards
Andy

I picked up a spintec ICC on line, but I am having a small problem with getting contact on the number 1 cell. I keep getting an error message that I am missing contract on cell 1+. I have cleaned the contacts, moved the cell around and have made sure that the two contact wires are on the +button.

Ant help and or suggestions would be welcome.

Thanks
