How To Install a Delta Q QuiQ Charger On Your Golf Cart
Today we will be working on a late model Club Car golf cart, You might recognize it as anH1 Hummer. We were having problems with the original golf cart battery charger that came with the cart. And since we get quite a few questions concerning how to install the Delta Q QuiQ charger – 912 series, we decided to put this basic how to article together.
Your new Delta Q QuiQ charger will come from us in the factory box with the AC Power Cord for your country\’s AC power grid. That will be US 110Vac or Europe 230Vac. You will need the cord to the cart for checkout separately to ensure you are getting the power cord you need. It will come just as the images show. You will receive a basic page of instructions and operational explanations. If you want the full owner\’s manual you can download it here. Delta Q website.
We will be installing the 912-4800 model on this cart. The 912 series consists of 24 volt, 36 volt, 48 volt and 72 volt battery chargers. The wiring coming out of the charger might not all be necessary for your application. All of Delta Q\’s QuiQ chargers are not the same because Delta Q manufactures chargers specifically for numerous manufacturers of DC power vehicles and equipment. The Delta Q QuiQ chargers Battery Pete offers are all the same and are consistent with the following wiring.
Delta Q QuiQ Charger Wiring
Positive Red wire with 5/16 ring terminal attaches to the positive pole on the battery bank, It is usually easy to distinguish by the numerous little wires versus the single thick (2 Ga) jumper wire when looking at the battery bank in your cart. All batteries will show positive and negative terminal positions with a raised + or – Symbol
Negative Black wire and white wire together with 5/16 ring terminal. They will have a little black box on them which is the temperature sensor used to communicate with the smart charger, usually easy to identify by the numerous little wires on it versus the single thick (2 Ga) jumper wire when looking at the battery bank in your cart. All batteries will show positive and negative terminal positions with a raised + or – Symbol.
Green wire (Not required on all carts.) Used for interlock on some carts like the Gem Cars. Notice in the picture that we did snip this wire because it\’s not necessary for most popular golf carts like a Club Car, E-Z-GO, Yamaha, etc.
Side Note – The interlock operates like a safety mechanism to keep someone from driving off with the golf cart while the golf cart battery is still charging. If your cart has one it requires a signal to determine when in charge mode vs storage mode. This allows the cart to go into forward or reverse and actually move.
Notice: The interlock system does not always use the same voltage as the batteries require. It is therefore imperative to determine the required voltage for the interlock signal to avoid burning something up on install. For example, 72 volts come off of the Delta Q QuiQ Charger 912-7200\’s green wire. If your cart only requires a 12 volt signal to the interlock, you will fry the circuit board and most likely something else. Do the due diligence on your specific make and model golf cart prior to install.
Delta Q QuiQ Charger Mounting
We will be mounting into the trunk area on this cart. All Delta Q QuiQ chargers can be mounted to any flat surface without the need for /.additional brackets or hardware. The charger\’s raised case forms a very sturdy mounting leg system that comes pre-drilled for ease of install. We will be using some small SS bottom top philips screws with an SS washer and an SS nylon lock nut to secure to the fiberglass in the trunk area.
We will also drill a few holes in the fiberglass to accommodate and route the wiring to attach the battery charger to the battery bank forward. Then we\’ll add an additional hole for the AC power cord to route out of the cart for charging. We recommend using a rubber grommet around the fresh holes in the fiberglass body to avoid damage or chaffing to the power cords from vibration during use of cart. Coming soon is a retractable power cord for your cart if you need a few extra feet to reach the nearest AC outlet in your garage or parking area. It mounts next to the charger or under the cart where space allows. (We will add link here as soon as it\’s available for purchase.)
Once we hook everything up and plug in, you will see a combination of lights begin to flash and move on the indicator panel of the charger. The instruction page will explain what they represent. All of our chargers are pre-programmed for the batteries in your specific application. Please make a note at order checkout to give us the brand of battery, the chemistry (lead acid, AGM, gel, lithium), voltage and Ah rating to expedite shipping of your new Delta Q QuiQ charger. If we do not receive this information with the order, someone will contact you to make sure you get the right programming.
All Delta Q Battery Chargers are smart chargers in every sense of the term. They are designed to extend the life of your batteries to the full suggested service life provided by the battery manufacturer because they will give your batteries the perfect charge every time.
In the event you purchase new batteries at some point and need to re-program your charger, please feel free to contact us at (772) 444-2280 to arrange to have your charger sent to us to be re-programmed. A flat fee of $25.00(USD) will be incurred – plus shipping costs. If you need frequent programming (more than one charger) ask us about getting your own programming device.
