Delta-Q Technologies has begun full-scale production of its IC900 and IC1200 battery chargers. Both chargers are available with CAN communication to link the charger to other components.
The IC900 and IC1200 provide 900 W and 1200 W of DC output power, respectively, and are available in 24-V, 36-V, and 48-V models. Applicable market categories include aerial work platforms, low-speed electric vehicles (LSEVs), light e-mobility, utility vehicles, fleet and specialty golf cars, and more. Both chargers are optionally available with CAN to control lithium charging. Machine diagnostics and servicing information are also transmitted via CAN.
These higher-power models expand on the IC650 offering, to create the IC series. All IC series chargers are sealed and record critical charge data, such as power returned to the battery, charge cycle completion or interruption, and the charge profile being used.
“We are pleased to achieve this milestone,” said Trent Punnett, VP of Product Management, Marketing and Corporate Development, “With IC900 and IC1200 battery chargers going into full scale production, we can start to fulfill the substantial demand that we’ve received since we announced these products.” Delta-Q Technologies has partnered with Flex (formerly Flextronics) for their contract manufacturing services. Flex’s High Reliability division is responsible for manufacturing Delta-Q products to automotive quality levels. Products made in these facilities are required to have very low defect rates and long service lives.
Delta-Q products are made for lithium-ion and lead acid batteries using profiles developed in the company’s battery lab. These profiles balance battery life, longevity, and charge time requirements. Delta-Q has commercialized over 190 charge profiles, ensuring better runtime and flexibility for different battery chemistries. Delta-Q chargers also carry a set of global regulatory approvals, and cabling, to be used in many single-phase electrical grids around the world.
