Douglas Battery, a manufacturer of batteries and chargers for material handling applications, announces the reintroduction of its Raptor Rapid charger, a high-frequency, high-speed fully automatic modular fast charger that can eliminate the need for battery changes.
Engineered with the latest digital power control technology, Raptor Rapid chargers enable batteries designed for fast charging to be safely charged anytime during the shift-day. With high charge rates, most two-shift and some two- to three-shift operations can avoid changing batteries during the shift. Raptor Rapid chargers offer intelligent charging with high efficiency and flexibility, while packaged in one of the industry’s most compact sizes.
The modular construction of the Raptor Rapid charger adapts to a wide range of battery capacities, allowing potential reduction of the number of chargers in a fleet. In order to achieve optimum charging performance and maintain peak efficiency at all times, charger modules are automatically switched off and on based on charge cycle requirements. Should a module develop a minor fault, the charger bypasses the module for continued operation and continuation of the charging process without interruption.
“Our extensive range of battery and charger products are designed to meet the high power demands of today’s industrial equipment,”said Brian Faust, Douglas Battery general manager. “Raptor Rapid modular fast chargers provide the highest level of efficiency and allow drivers to simply drive up and plug in during work breaks, keeping batteries charged and operations moving for maximum productivity.”
