First consider the panel load on the battery. This is the main requirement for the charge current. The battery charger must be able to supply this current. Any remaining capacity in the charger is used to charge the battery. Battery charging only needs to be a small amount above this to keep the battery “topped up”. Bulk charging after an engine start is performed by the DC Charging Alternator. For example, for a standing load (panel load) of 2 A, a 5 A or 10 A charger is usually considered satisfactory for the majority of genset applications.
No, DSE battery chargers can be left connected during cranking and while the engine is running.
Ensure the DSE Four Steps to Synchronising procedure has been followed correctly. Contact DSE Technical Support if you continue to have problems after performing this procedure.
DSE334 and DSE335 have the option to disable the Fail to Stop detection using the DSE Configuration Suite PC Software.
DSE334 and DSE335 are designed specifically to support this application.
Check the cooling timer in the Genset controller is suitable for the application.
This usually means you require a fast recharge time. Use a larger charger, with a current rating up to 10 times the Ah capacity of the battery. For example, for a 100 Ah battery, use a charger up to 10 A. If you want to charge at a rate more than this, check first with your battery manufacturer.
DSE Battery Chargers have a configurable charging voltage suitable for most battery types (ie NiCd, Lead Acid, Gel type etc). For the “Intelligent” chargers, this voltage is PC configurable by the user. Contact DSE Technical Support for more information.
Yes. DSE battery charger outputs can be connected in parallel for a higher current rating or in series for a higher voltage rating.

Our DSE Configuration Suite Software makes configuring DSE products a straightforward process. Once installed to a Windows PC, open the software, select your product and change the settings to meet your application requirements. Configurations can be saved for future use.
Our DSE Discovery Tool displays information on all DSE products connected to a single local area network (LAN). Once installed to a Windows PC, open the software and search for available products. The software will display all product IDs and IP addresses.
Our DSE Assistant software allows pre-saved configuration files to be written to and read from DSE control modules. Configuration files are created using the full DSE Configuration Suite Software. The file is opened using DSE Assistant and written to a control module via a USB connection. This software is perfect for writing a single configuration to multiple control modules.
CODESYS 3.5 should be installed before downloading the M-Series device descriptors.
The M-Series device descriptor download includes the individual descriptor files for each product within the DSE M-Series range.
The service tool allows firmware and boot loader upgrades, users to download new CODESYS applications and provides support for Ethernet communications.
