Delta-Q charges into mid-range
By Euan Youdale05 September 2019
Delta-Q has entered mid-range power charging through its new stackable charging software. This software allows for two to six Delta-Q chargers to link together to deliver up to 7.5 kW.
Driven by changes in the market, Delta-Q said it designed the stackable charging system for OEMs in need of a charging solution that is modular, scalable and can be distributed across their vehicle or equipment.
The stackable solution provides added flexibility in that it can be used as an onboard or offboard charger or as combination of the two. Further, the new stackable charger is ideal for electric vehicles in the urban mobility, utility, articulated booms, compact construction, and material handling industries.
“This launch is an exciting move for Delta-Q,” said Steve Blaine, executive vice president of engineering and quality. “With this new software, our products can scale across our customers’ electric product lines. OEMs will also have the flexibility to choose how they want to charge their products based on their needs.”
The stackable charging system offers CAN bus communication for BMS charge control, vehicle, and telematics system integration, supports charging from North American and European standard charging stations (EVSEs), and delivers precise charge of battery packs of various chemistries and voltages, up to 120 Vdc prolonging battery life while minimising charge time. In addition, it helps OEMs reduce SKU count and wiring infrastructure overhead costs.
Delta-Q is accepting sample requests and will start production of the system in November 2019. It will be shown at Delta-Q’s booth (2205) at the Battery Show in Novi, Michigan, 10-12 September.
