Iota IQ4 Charge Controller, 12V/ 24V
The IQ4 charge controller offers automatic charging control for Iota DLS battery chargers, providing longer and safer use of your system's battery. The IQ4 controller allows the DLS charger to operate as an automatic 3-stage "smart charger" that gives you the benefit of bulk, absorption, and float stage charging. Three-stage charging increases the charging capacity of the DLS charger and decreases the charge time while insuring proper and safe battery charging and minimizing the possibility of over-charging. The IQ4 monitors the battery at all times. If the DLS voltage remains in the float stage for more than seven days, the IQ4 will automatically enter the equalization stage for a predetermined time to help maintain the battery plates, and then resume float stage charging.
The IQ4 charge controller installs by simply plugging the IQ4 cord into the dual voltage jack located on the DLS. The IQ4 circuitry is then automatically engaged. Note: the cord provided is specifically designed for use with the IQ4. Do not use the IQ4 with any cord other than one supplied with the unit.
The LED indicator on the IQ4 informs the user of the DLS charging state and the battery charge status. When first activated, the IQ4 will read the number of cells in the battery and indicate the voltage of the battery through a number of flashes.
