“As you know, I have the ArkPak and I really like it. It is bigger, but I love the functionality and seems to work very well. I use it to power the ARB 50 quart fridge/freezer with no problems and works great for other devices. ”
Tracker Battery Management
The Time Tracker is a sophisticated battery management system that monitors your battery through the interactive LCD screen.
The screen displays :
Battery’s current condition, Percentage of battery capacity, remaining Number of hours, until fully charged, Stage of the charging cycle, Battery type selection, Battery size selection
NOTE: The ArkPak will also store your previous battery settings so that they are still correct even if you remove the battery.
Smart Charging Cycle
The 7 stage smart charger monitors your battery through the following cycles to optimise performance:
Stage 1: Charge
Commences recovery of your battery back to peak voltage. Then charges the battery at 6 amps up to a set voltage, at which point the battery is approximately 90% charged.
Stage 2: Testing
Checks the battery capacity and predicts the hours left until fully charged.
Stage 3: Bulk
The period just before boost when the volts are constant.
Stage 4: Boost
Peak charge for maximum performance. Battery is charged for 4 hours at constant voltage.
Stage 5: Resting
Allows the battery to consolidate after boost. The ArkPak ceases charging and allows the battery to rest while allowing voltage to drop to 13.2V.
Stage 6: Float
This maintains performance and prolongs battery life – as your battery is continually monitored and the voltage is maintained at 13.2V by automatically adjusting charge current for 500 hours.
Stage 7: Re-awaken
This exercises the battery and avoids sulphation build-up. After 500 hours of conditioning the charger automatically returns to charge cycle.
