Delta-Q Technologies, a provider in battery charging solutions for electric drive vehicles and industrial machines, introduced its aftermarket battery chargers for aerial work platforms and the new QuiQ 1500 battery charger.
Delta-Q's IC650 industrial battery charger is configured as a drop-in replacement for Skyjack and Genie scissor lifts. Additionally, the QuiQ 1500, a higher power version of the QuiQ 1000 that is found in many existing electric vehicles and industrial machines, was introduced.
When mounted on-board, the sealed IC650 can tolerate vibration, shock, dirt and fluids. "For rental operators, that equates to incredible machine readiness, lower charger replacement costs and customer satisfaction with machine runtime," Delta-Q stated. Each charger comes with identical cabling to the OEM charger and a mounting adapter, allowing ease of installation and configuration for maintenance staff. Prices for the IC650 are competitive with existing aftermarket options, the company also said.
The QuiQ 1500 allows users to charge existing battery packs up to 30 percent faster than the QuiQ 1000 or equip machines with a bigger pack, meeting a 5- or 8-hour charging time. The QuiQ 1500 is compact and matches the exact dimensions and mounting holes of the existing QuiQ 1000, allowing swift replacement of any existing QuiQ charger. In addition, it can be used as an additional, off-board charger to charge battery packs faster.
Delta-Q chargers come equipped with charging profiles for popular brands and models of batteries, including Discover Energy, Fullriver, Interstate, Trojan and U.S. Battery. The company also provides generic profiles for different battery types and Amp hour ranges.
