Iota DLS-15/IQ4, 12 Volt 15 Amp Regulated Battery Charger/Supply with IQ4 Smart Charge Controller
The DLS series converter/power supply output is so clean and ripple-free, it can be used with or without a battery. The DLS series converter/charger quickly and efficiently charges batteries from the full rated output of the DLS. The DLS then maintains the batteries, only putting into the battery what is required by load or self discharge, cutting back to milliamps as the battery requires. Low and transient AC line voltage can be a major cause of converter/power supply failure. The DLS series converter/power supply is protected against low line voltage, as well as spikes coming from the AC power source or from improperly adjusted generators. When used as a power supply, the DLS model will only supply what is required by the load. When not in use it is essentially off, reducing electricity usage. External fuses can be quickly and easily replaced.
Chargers have 120 VAC input. 75-amp and larger chargers have 120V 20-amp plugs. 2-year warranty.

The IQ4 Smart Charge Controller
The IQ4 Smart Charge Controller offers automatic charging control for DLS battery chargers, providing longer and safer use of your system’s battery. The IQ4 controller allows the battery charger to operate as an automatic “smart charger.” This gives the user the benefit of Bulk, Absorption, and Float stage charging, decreases charge times, insures proper and safe battery charging, and minimizes overcharging. The IQ4 monitors the battery at all times. If the DLS voltage remains in the long term Float stage for more than seven days, the IQ4 Smart Charger will automatically deliver a boost charge for a predetermined time, then return to the normal Float stage.
