Vancouver-based Delta-Q Technologies has announced two new battery charging solutions for use in electric sports products, including motorcycles and scooters. The new IC900 and IC1200 Industrial Battery Chargers join the company’s IC650 Charger to form a common charging platform for use across manufacturer’s product lines.
Delta-Q chargers can be used with lithium-ion or lead-acid batteries. The three models in the IC Series provide 650, 900 and 1200 watts of DC output power, respectively, and all are available in 24-, 36- and 48-volt models. All IC Series chargers have a wide AC input range and are usable on any single-phase electrical grid worldwide.
Optional CAN bus communication enables a link between the charger and other components, providing for safe lithium-ion battery charging, as well as machine diagnostics and servicing information. Charge cycle data is accessible through a built-in USB port.
“IC Series chargers are highly reliable on-board charging solutions for electric motorcycles and scooters, providing precise charging of lithium-ion batteries and the convenience of plugging into the nearest outlet,” said IC Series Product Manager Jeff Everett. “Manufacturers can easily integrate the IC Series charger that best suits their charge time requirement and customize charging features to differentiate their machines.”
Delta-Q is now taking sample requests for the IC900 and IC1200, for delivery in December. Commercial production will begin in March 2016.
