Chargers promote uptime
24 July 2014
The new Hawker LifeTech Modular and Hawker Life IQ Modular high-frequency battery chargers from EnerSys are reported to deliver increased flexibility, efficiency and reliability with reduced downtime, costs and carbon footprint across a wide range of materials handling, automatic guided vehicle and motive power applications.
They reduce energy consumption by up to 25% compared with conventional chargers and can cut charging times by up to two hours. Single-phase and three-phase modules are available in a range of configurations with outputs from 12 to 80V for use with any batteries with a corresponding charging profile.
The chargers are configured using a number of identical power modules so that performance can be matched to the specific application requirement. This allows installations to be optimised to take full advantage of all of the energy-efficiency and battery-life benefits of high-frequency charging.
