The rising price of fossil fuel and growing environmental concerns are two factors pushing the demand for electric forklifts. This trend increases the demand for efficient battery management. High frequency charging provides improved productivity, utility energy savings and improved safety. |
With their high frequency design, these chargers operate with ~100% power factor, ~92% electrical efficiency and technology that allows them to achieve full 100% state of charge with less overcharge.
A Revealing Case Study
During the study, each battery was subjected to the same charging, usage and recharging procedures. The results showed the Hawker PowerTech charged the battery 50 minutes quicker than the Work Hog, resulting in more cool down and a quicker rotation.
A projected savings analysis indicates that the Hawker PowerTech would provide users with a total energy savings of $567.84 per year per charger, saving in energy consumption, demand and maintenance costs, battery life extension and extended operating time.
