Industrial Battery Charging System
How The Chargers Work In Different Daily Operations
Micropower has been supplying the industrial sector with battery chargers for nearly four decades and has worked closely with several customers around the world in different industrial applications such as electric forklift trucks, the automotive sector, utility vehicles, AGVs and cleaning machines.
Today you can find both Micropower’s stationary chargers for traction batteries and integrated onboard battery chargers and systems at airports, supporting the electric ground support equipment and at demanding construction sites serving together with heavy electrical construction equipment.
Stationary Battery Charging Of Traction BatteriesStationary battery chargers work perfectly when customers have their charging stationed out in the facility, either in battery charging rooms (working together with a battery exchange system) or in individual spots based on operators' working areas where they can be used for fast and/or opportunity charging during breaks and lunches.
Onboard Charging - Mounted On Machine Or VehicleOnboard battery chargers work onboard at the vehicle or machine and can be charged whenever there is a power output available. They are characterized by its compactness and robustness to fit the machine/vehicle and cope with everyday industrial challenges and conditions.
What Different Kinds Of Charger Series Are There?
Series For Various Electric Needs
Micropower has several types of battery chargers and is sorting them into different series depending on main features of the battery charger and customer needs.
