The new Hawker LifeTech Modular and Hawker Life IQ Modular high-frequency battery chargers from EnerSys offer increased flexibility, efficiency and reliability with reduced downtime, costs and carbon footprint.
They reduce energy consumption by up to 25% compared with conventional chargers and can cut charging times by up to two hours. Single-phase and three-phase modules are available in a range of configurations with outputs from 12 to 80V for use with any batteries with a corresponding charging profile including models from the Hawker XFC and Hawker Waterless ranges.
The chargers are configured using a number of identical power modules so that performance can be matched to the specific application requirement. This allows installations to be optimised to take full advantage of all of the energy-efficiency and battery-life benefits of high-frequency charging. Each module is a standalone unit which is managed independently by the control board to deliver peak efficiency at all times. This modular approach minimises the risk of charger failure.
