Charging solutions for floor cleaning machines

Delta-Q Technologies has announced the introduction of its RC Series battery chargers which includes two new battery-charging solutions for use in battery powered floor care machines. The new RC900 and RC1200 chargers provide 900 and 1200 watts of DC output power respectively, and are available in 36 and 48-volt models.

Capable of charging both lead-acid and lithium-ion batteries, RC Series chargers use controller area network (CAN bus) communications. The RC900 and RC1200 are designed for use in battery-powered scrubbers, sweepers, and burnishers. The RC Series IP66-rated ingress protection seals out dirt and fluids, while mechanical design and component selection resists vibration, shock and temperature extremes. Delta-Q Technologies is now accepting RC900 and RC1200 sample requests, with full commercial production beginning in Q1 2017.

“The RC900 and RC1200 are products we have developed with our customer price points and product roadmaps in mind,” said Trent Punnett, vice president of sales, marketing, and product management at Delta-Q Technologies. “RC Series chargers are ready for the future, with the ability to precisely charge lithium-ion and lead acid batteries, providing manufacturers with the ability to differentiate machines and simplify maintenance. RC Series chargers are designed, validated, warrantied and supported by Delta-Q, unlike some of our competitors who source third party product and label it as their own. We stand behind what we design and build.”

Delta-Q's products provide premium '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 commercialised more than 200 charge profiles, ensuring that users experience better performance and battery life for their battery pack choices.
