Have another question? Just ask us!

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.

The RF80-M has all the features of the RF80-K and more.
We are setting up an aircraft battery shop and this is an OEM recommended. The latest technology like the touch screen operation makes operating it very user friendly.
Make sure you download the operator manual and read it. Never switch it ON without a battery connected to its charging terminals.

Very good charger and it has met our expectations. We are using it to train students on the process of charging ni-cad batteries. Thank you for the prompt service and will recommend you to future prospects.
