Unique test and maintenance cycle
The new OptiMate 6 ampmaticTM is the worldâs most advanced and versatile battery
charger, maintainer and tester. All in one unit, in a stylish, robust, weatherproof
enclosure, easily wall-mountable.
As soon as connected, the
ampmaticTM microprocessor automatically diagnoses your
batteryÃâs condition and sets the optimal charge current and program. An enhanced
version of the acclaimed
OptiMateTM multi-stage desulphation program will even
automatically give many deep-discharged and otherwise ÃâdeadÃâ batteries a new lease
of life. When the charge is complete, the eco power-saving mode ensures ultra low
power consumption while maintaining your battery, optimally charged, always cool and
safe, month after month, prolonging its life by up to 400% !
How it works
: OptiMate 6 checks that it is connected to a battery ( = minimum voltage 1,8V).
: the ampmatic processor checks the batteryÃâs condition to determine the appropriate program entry
3. Desulphation and recovery
: if necessary, 2 or 3 stages of high voltage and oscillatory pulsing are applied to recover
neglected, fl at batteries (removed from the vehicle) from sulphation to a chargeable state.
4. Bulk charge
: the ampmatic processor sets and then continually re-adjusts the constant current optimally for each
individual battery according to its evolving electrical characteristics.
5. Short-circuited cell check
: after 10 minutes the ampmatic processor assesses the electrical parameters to check
for power leakage due to a short-circuited cell.
6. Absorption and equalisation
: during 10 minutes the current is delivered in pulses to cause the voltage to oscillate
between 13,7 and 14,3V, aiding cell voltage equalization.
7. Charge verification
: during 5 minutes the voltage is limited at 13,6V while the ampmatic processor monitors the
current absorbed by the battery. If this reveals a less than optimal charge, the program reverts to absorption for a
further 10 minutes.
8. Charge retention test
: when the optimal charge has been achieved, the first check for battery (and connected
system) power leakage commences. If the battery passes the first 30 minutes test, the test is extended up to 12
hours for a definitive result. If the voltage falls below 12,4V in this period the extended test is terminated. Results
of the tests can be read at a glance on the easy-to-read LED panel. 30 minute tests are repeated hourly until the
OptiMate 6 is disconnected, so that the battery status indication is continually updated.
9. Charge maintenance
: during alternate 30 minute periods, at a fl oat limit of 13,6V the battery is offered whatever
charge current it needs to sustain it against any small connected loads or power leakage and against natural selfdischarge.
OptiMate6 can stay connected to the battery indefi nitely, the battery will stay cool and safe. And optimally charged .
