Douglas Battery- launches new battery chargers

Douglas Battery™ recently introduced two new battery chargers for industrial lift truck applications.                         

“We have expanded our line of chargers to better serve the demand from the battery-powered lift truck market,” explained Brian Faust, general manager at Douglas Battery™. “Our new models include a highly efficient, compact model designed for smaller businesses and a more versatile opportunity charger designed for larger fleet operations.”        

The Douglas™ Legacy® Neo™ HF charger is a small, compact model that combines high efficiency and high power. It is ideal for operations where space is at a premium. The Douglas™ Legacy® Neo™ HF charger’s IONIC™ profile constantly diagnoses the battery’s condition and adjusts the charging curve for optimum charge. Providing an optimum charge reduces heat and overcharge for maximum battery life. This charger is available in manual or automatic in three charging profiles: IONIC™ (flooded), Cold Store or Valve Regulated Lead Acid (VRLA) battery.

The Douglas™ Legacy® Insight™ HF charger delivers a higher power factor and efficiency than conventional chargers for reduced electrical bills. The Douglas™ Legacy® Insight™ HF charger is capable of opportunity charge and can automatically charge batteries of various voltages and capacities. This can reduce or eliminate the need to change batteries during a shift. This versatile charger is available in manual or automatic in four charging profiles: IONIC™ (flooded), Opportunity Charge, VRLA battery and Cold Storage.

Douglas Battery™ chargers are compatible with the Douglas™ DataTrac™ battery monitoring system. The new chargers also meet the California Energy Commission (CEC) efficiency standards.
