Float or End of Charge
When the Absorption charge is completed, the batteries require a certain amount of voltage to maintain a full charge when no load is applied. This Float voltage maintains the battery bank at a constant full state of charge. To prolong battery life, the Float settings on the power supply should be adjusted to the voltage indicated in Table 2 (a) & 2 (b) Flooded Charging Parameters. Higher or lower voltage settings may result in unnecessary overcharge or sulfation.
>**End of Charge**
As batteries near full capacity the charge current drops. End Amps or Return Amps generally refers to the lowest amount of current (Amps) running from the charger when the batteries have reached full capacity and are no longer accepting a charge. Some charges will measure the actual current output. If the charge current drops to the End Amps or Return Amps set point, this will trigger the charger to shut off. This setting is typically 2%-3% of the 20 Hr AH rating (C20) of the battery bank. Rolls recommends setting this at 2% for new installations
For the ELF set up of some 500Ah this would be 10A ????
