by Brianna Crandall — June 1, 2020 — Delta-Q Technologies has just introduced its latest sealed battery charger, the RQ350, for electric vehicles and industrial machines. Having found significant market success with the IC Series chargers rated from 650 to 1200 watts, Delta-Q has now covered lower power applications with its new 350-watt charger. This new build was designed and tested to meet automotive levels of product reliability, improving machine runtimes.
Lloyd Gomm, VP of Business Development, stated:
The RQ350 is a response to our customers’ needs in multiple application segments. Our customers have asked us to bring our high reliability charger design into both lower- and higher-capacity battery-charging applications. The RQ350 solidly answers the former need with a well-thought-out design offered at an OEM affordable price.
Designed for demanding applications such as floor-care machines, pallet walkies, two-wheel e-mobility products, outdoor power equipment and mobile aerial work platforms, the RQ350 offers original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), contractors and end-users the rugged design and flexible feature set they have grown to expect and appreciate from Delta-Q’s high-quality chargers.
From using an IP66-sealed die cast enclosure that can tolerate harsh application environments to the integration of CAN bus, Delta-Q offers reliability and design flexibility to OEMs integrating on-board chargers. The new charger features over-voltage protection from the AC line and is compliant to a variety of worldwide regulations such as UL, FCC B/CISPR-14 and UNECE R10.
The RQ350 also benefits from Delta-Q’s extensive library of validated charge profiles that can be specified for each charger. In addition, like the popular IC Series, charger cycle data can be downloaded, and new charging profiles can be updated by the OEM or end-use customer.
More information about the RQ350 battery charger is available on the Delta-Q website. The company supplies battery chargers to many of the world’s leading manufacturers of electric golf cars, lift trucks, aerial work platforms, motorcycles and scooters, floor-care machines, and utility and recreational vehicles. Delta-Q is headquartered in Vancouver, Canada, with a local presence in the U.S., Europe, and Asia.
