Rapid Battery Charger for Lift Trucks

Description

Douglas Battery™ has introduced the new high-speed, fully automatic, high frequency Raptor™ Rapid charger for large-scale, multi-shift industrial lift truck applications. The Raptor™ Rapid charger returns batteries to a full state of charge in about a quarter of the time when compared to conventional chargers.  By charging during normal shift breaks, battery changes can be virtually eliminated.

“The Raptor Rapid charger recharges batteries three to five times faster than conventional units, allowing operators to fully and easily charge their forklift batteries during normal breaks and forklift downtimes,” explains Brian Faust, director of sales, Douglas Battery. “The Raptor charger can be used whenever a full or partial charge is needed, avoiding productivity downtime and ultimately reducing operating costs.”

Available for both wall and floor mounting, the modular configuration of the Raptor™ Rapid charger provides the flexibility to maintain optimum efficiency at all times. If a module faults, the charger bypasses the module in order for charging to continue to keep operations productive.

The new charger returns batteries to a full state of charge without generating excess heat, ultimately reducing energy usage and protecting the battery from the risk of damage from excessive heat.

The new charger is compatible with the Douglas™ DataTrac™ battery monitoring system, which collects data about the battery’s usage, charge return, water level, temperature and equalization.
