Navitas Systems selects Delta-Q Technologies’ IC1200 Charger for its newest Lithium Forklift Battery Pack
Charging material handling equipment now as simple as finding the nearest power outlet

Delta-Q Technologies (Delta-Q), and Navitas Systems, has announced that  Navitas Systems has selected Delta-Q’s IC1200 battery charger for use on the company’s new Starlifter-AC™ 24-volt lithium battery.  The newest Starlifter AC™ is a 24-volt lithium battery targeted to power “Class 3” material handling equipment, such as ride-on pallet jacks, stackers, and tuggers. 

“We’re delighted to integrate Delta-Q’s IC1200 battery charger as an onboard charging option on our 24-volt Starlifter batteries and provide our material handling equipment customers with a new level of charging capability,” said Samer Elshafei, director of commercial sales for Navitas Systems. “The Starlifter-AC comes in two sizes-275 Amp Hour and 550 Amp Hour capacities. The 550 Amp Hour size in particular represents the largest commercially-available lithium forklift battery to be chargeable via an integrated charger. Delta-Q’s software customization capabilities enabled us to easily integrate the charger with our unique battery management system, which fulfills our customers’ needs for smart, reliable and safe equipment.”

Navitas Systems’ new Starlifter AC™ lithium battery is a zero maintenance, long lifecycle lithium solution. The 24-volt Starlifter battery is normally designed for rapid recharging from an external charger, and with the optional integrated Delta-Q IC1200, it provides equipment operators with the added convenience, flexibility and control to charge their Starlifter-powered forklift from the convenience of any standard power outlet.

The IC1200 used in the Starlifter AC™ is part of Delta-Q’s IC Series. All IC Series chargers are sealed, built for reliability and record critical charge data such as power returned to the battery, charge cycle completion or interruption, and the charge profile being used. These chargers also address the need for serviceability by offering a USB host port that allows operators to download charge cycle data or upload new software and charge profiles. Delta-Q’s IC1200 has an IP67-rated external fan, which provides active cooling for full 1200-watt charger output in high ambient temperatures.  

“The Starlifter™ is an impressive lithium battery line, and we’re proud to provide our charging solutions for its latest model,” said Trent Punnett, vice president of sales, marketing and product management at Delta-Q. “As lift truck OEMs and major customers continue to switch to lithium solutions for their industrial equipment, we’ll continue to innovate and provide the industry with a wide range of high-quality chargers that best suit their electric portfolios.”
