Delta Products brings first wireless charger to market

By DC Velocity Staff

The wireless revolution has come to battery charging. Delta Products' innovative wireless charging system for automated guided vehicles (AGVs) and forklift applications eliminates the need for costly cables and connectors that are prone to damage. The system includes a transformer with a primary base plate on a floor or wall and a secondary plate attached to the AGV or forklift. When the vehicle approaches within one inch of the charger, the energy transfer begins. When the charge is complete, the forklift or AGV pulls away, and the charger automatically shuts off.

Delta Products says the waterproof (IP65) charger is over 93 percent efficient and is usable with any battery type, including lithium-ion, with CANbus communication.
