Vancouver-based Delta-Q Technologies provides battery charging solutions for less-glamorous but essential electric vehicles such as forklifts, aerial work platforms, floor care machines, scooters and golf carts. In this world, the old trusty lead-acid battery is just in the process of being superseded by lithium-ion chemistries, and Delta-Q recently released its first lithium-specific battery charger.
The new ICL1200 is a 1,200-watt charger, designed to optimally charge batteries based on any lithium-ion chemistry (LCO, NCA, NMC, LMO, LFP, LTO, etc.). It is suitable for use with any electric machine, and can be installed as either an on- or off-board charger.
Featuring a wide AC input range, the ICL1200 can operate on any single-phase electrical grid around the world. Its customizable, field-replaceable cable design is meant to offer OEMs maximum flexibility.
The ICL1200 uses CAN bus communications, and carries a comprehensive set of global regulatory approvals, including touch-safe requirements for the European EV market.
Delta-Q is now accepting sample requests.
“Our products are designed to meet the evolving needs of our customers while providing reliability and long-term performance,” says Delta-Q VP Trent Punnett. “The new ICL1200 is a perfect complement to our OEM customers as they incorporate lithium technologies into their products.”
