Delta-Q Technologies (Delta-Q), a provider of battery charging solutions for electric drive vehicles and machines, has introduced its new ICL900 lithium battery charger – expanding its family of lithium battery chargers to create the ICL Series.
The new ICL900 is a 900-watt charger, designed to optimally charge lithium battery systems of any lithium-ion chemistry from nine to 15 cells in series. Delta-Q’s new lithium charger is suitable for use on any electric machine including scooters, floor care machines, lift trucks, and sports and utility vehicles.
“We are pleased to announce the expansion of our lithium charging line,” said Trent Punnett, Delta-Q’s vice president of sales, marketing, and product management. ”Our products are designed to meet the evolving needs of our customers while providing reliability and long-term performance. The new ICL900 is a perfect complement to our OEM customers as they incorporate lithium technologies into their products.”
The ICL900 has a maximum output voltage of 57V and uses custom lithium algorithms to optimize battery performance and life. The ICL900 also uses Controller Area Network (CAN-bus) communications and carries a comprehensive set of global regulatory approvals, including touch-safe requirements for the European electric vehicle market.
Featuring a wide AC input range, the charger can operate on any single-phase electrical grid around the world. With a fully customizable, field replaceable cable design, the new ICL900 provides original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) with flexibility in design and deployment.
The ICL900 is highly reliable and provides an IP66 rating to protect against dirt and fluids, while its mechanical design and component selection resists vibration, shock and temperature extremes.
