Haessler Inc. Chooses Delta-Q Onboard Charger for WolfLifT | Construction News


Haessler Inc., Guelph, Ontario, has selected Delta-Q as the charging-solutions supplier for its new WolfLifT hydraulic-free lift. Delta-Q Technologies (Delta-Q), a leader in battery charging solutions for electric vehicles and industrial machines.

The WolfLifT all-electric aerial work platform is an environmentally friendly technology that offers important advantages to users and owners.

Using all AC electrically motorized functions, the WolfLifT gives more cycles per charge, eliminates any risk of oil leaks, and reduces maintenance and service costs.

The superior stability of the machine also makes work at elevated heights more comfortable and productive, and its all-enclosed structure minimizes entrainment of falling debris.

"We are excited about the opportunity to work with Haessler Inc., and we look forward to contributing to their continued success in the aerial work platform market," said Trent Punnett, vice president of sales, marketing, and product management at Delta-Q.

The WolfLifT hydraulic-free lift will use Delta-Q's 24V IC650 industrial and motive battery charger. Capable of charging lithium-ion and lead acid (wet, gel, and AGM) batteries, the IC650 provides superior equipment up-time, flexibility for different battery chemistries, and the ability to resist and tolerate high levels of vibration, shock, fluids, and dirt. Its sealed die-cast enclosure provides a long service life despite the difficult operating conditions when mounted aboard a vehicle.

The IC650 battery charger is part of a product group from Delta-Q called the 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. The IC Series chargers address the need for serviceability through a USB host port that allows charge cycle data to be downloaded, or new software and charge profiles to be uploaded.
