Delta-Q Technologies IC Series Battery Chargers
The Canada-based Delta-Q Technologies has launched new products that offers modern batter-charging solutions for motorcycles, scooters and other power sports products – the IC Series.
The new IC900 and IC1200 Industrial Battery Chargers join Delta-Q Technologies’ IC650 charger to offer charging solutions for many product lines. The numbers represent watts of DC output power.
The Delta-Q Technologies IC Series charges are designed for high reliability in order to withstand operating and environmental conditions faced by electric motorcycles and scooters. Delta-Q chargers provide the flexibility to charge either lithium-ion or lead acid (wet/flooded, sealed AGM or gel) 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.
Delta-Q is now accepting IC900 and IC1200 sample requests for delivery in December 2015, with full commercial production beginning in March 2016. Specifications for the chargers are available on Delta-Q.com.
“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 Jeff Everett, IC Series product manager at Delta-Q. “Manufacturers can easily integrate the IC Series charger that best suits their charge time requirement and customize charging features to differentiate their machines.”
IC Series chargers are validated for a long service life in challenging on-board applications and provide superior machine uptime. Their IP66-rated ingress protection seals out dirt and fluids, while mechanical design and component selection help resist factors such as vibration, shock and temperature extremes. All Delta-Q chargers are made in a world-class facility for high reliability solutions with very low defect rates.
Delta-Q products provide “charge quality” for lithium-ion and lead acid batteries using charge profiles developed in Delta-Q’s battery lab. These high-performance profiles balance battery life, longevity and charge time requirements. Delta-Q has commercialized more than 50 charge profiles, ensuring that users experience better run time and flexibility for different battery chemistries.
Optional CAN bus communication enables a link between the charger and other components, providing for safe lithium-ion battery charging, and machine diagnostics and servicing information. IC Series chargers store charge cycle data, which is accessible using their built-in USB host port. Through the host port, software updates and new charge profiles can be installed using a pre-programmed USB flash drive.
All IC Series chargers have a wide AC input range and are usable on any single-phase electrical grid worldwide. The IC650 holds broad regulatory approvals and identical approvals are intended for the IC900 and IC1200.
