Delta-Q Technologies has introduced the RQ700, an expansion to the company’s RQ Series of chargers designed to meet the requirements of industrial pallet trucks and light electric vehicles.
With a 700 W power output, the RQ700 is available in 24, 36 and 48 VDC options. The charger features a 12 VDC, 400 milliamp (mA) auxiliary power supply to operate system components. For example, after a battery management system (BMS) enters sleep mode, the charger can wake up the BMS and power telematics and other components to ensure the battery is operational even after powering down. This feature enables flexibility, safety, and seamless integration with lithium batteries.
The RQ700 has a user-friendly design complete with installation cables. It is designed to withstand automotive shock and vibration and is fully sealed, with an IP67 rating to protect against water and dust ingress. The on-board microprocessor delivers precise charging even at a low state of charge and supports Unified Diagnostic Services (UDS), the ability to use standardized services and diagnostic tools. The charger comes with three built-in LEDs to indicate charging status, errors, and faults and a push button to select charge algorithms in the field or on users’ production lines.
