What is included with the unit?
The following items are included with brand new units:

  • Quick-Connect Output Cable Adapter
  • Universal Output Cable Adapter
  • Test Lead Set
  • TD-711 or TD-650 H Operator's Manual

Is there calibration or CofC included with a new unit?
The new units will come with a CofC and Certificate of Calibration valid for 12 months. A 8130-3 is not included as this is ground support equipment.

What is the difference between the RF80-M and RF80-K?
The new RF80-M replaces the RF80-K model and has the same form, fit and function, but with a 7-inch touch-screen display, advanced micro-controller and expanded functionality. Both the RF80-K and the RF80-M are current production units and both units will be supported from a spares and logistics standpoint indefinitely.

We strongly recommend the RF80-M over the RF80-K because:
  • RF80-M is newer
  • RF80-M has a 7-inch touch-screen display rather than the analog knobs, switches, and dials used on the RF80-K.
  • RF80-M has the same power section as the proven RF80-K.
  • RF80-M uses advanced micro-controller where the RF80-K uses older technology components.
  • RF80-M is a programmable charger vs. the RF80-K which is a manually controlled.
  • RF80-M is upgradable to use with the latest ABMS-10X Battery Management System.
  • RF80-M calibration verification can easily be accomplished, much easier and faster than RF80-K calibration verification procedure.

The RF80-M is a better charger if you have a mix of lead acid and ni-cad batteries. The RF80-M has a touchscreen adjustable constant potential voltage set point whereby the RF80-K constant potential voltage set point can only be controlled via internal potentiometer.
