April 12, 2019

CHICAGO – Delta-Q Technologies (Delta-Q) showed its ICL Series of lithium battery chargers – the ICL 1200 and the ICL 1500 in 85V and 120V models – at ProMat 2019 in Chicago this week.

The high-frequency ICL 1200 and 1500 chargers are the latest additions to Delta-Q’s first lithium specific charging line and are available in 85V and 120V models.

The 85V models are designed to charge lithium battery systems of any lithium ion chemistry from 14 to 24 cells in a series, while the 120V models can charge lithium ion chemistries within 21 to 34 cells.

“We designed the ICL Series to provide customers with unparalleled performance capabilities for their lithium-technology needs,” said Trent Punnett, executive vice-president and head of sales, product management and marketing at Delta-Q.

“A higher voltage charger allows our material handling customers to access customizable solutions that best suit their electric portfolio.”

The ICL Series, like the rest of Delta-Q products, are IP66-rated to protect against dirt and fluids, and are designed to withstand severe on-board vehicle vibration, shock and temperature extremes.

The ICL series shares a set of standard features offering original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) with flexibility in design and deployment. These include a wide AC input range, where any ICL Series charger can operate on any single-phase electrical grid around the world; a fully customizable, field replaceable cable design; and the ability to act as both an on-or off-board charger. The ICL Series is suitable for use on any electric machine including light electric vehicles, lift trucks, unmanned aerial vehicles, scooters, aerial work platforms and sports and utility vehicles.
