Wireless Charging Systems for the Material Handling Industry

Delta Group, a power and thermal management solutions company, launched its wireless battery charging systems for the material handling industry, capable of delivering efficiency of up to 93%.

Delta's wireless charging systems can be applied to a wide range of industrial vehicles from forklifts to automated guided vehicles (AGVs), covering the applications from 300 W to 30 kW, and can be designed for any power level depending on utility infrastructure and installation site. It can eliminate the need for cables and connectors or human intervention to efficiently charge batteries.

"The 30 kW wireless system is able to charge a 600 Ahr-48 V battery in 60 minutes," said a company spokesperson.

"Wireless charging is fairly new for the material handling industries," said M.S. Huang, President of Delta Americas. "As a leading provider of EV technologies for homes and businesses, Delta's innovative wireless charging systems bring the industrial market a more efficient charging solution. In addition to streamlining operations and saving precious time for operators, Delta's new wireless technologies make the use of power cables and connectors, which on a facility-wide basis can cost thousands of dollars to replace when damaged or worn out, obsolete."

Delta's wireless charging system is safe and reliable with no moving parts. It can be mounted to the wall or floor and is available in a range of power levels. It is comprised of a base-pad that is connected to a wall-box and a low-weight on-board unit that is integrated into the vehicle. The 1 kW can charge with a 20 mm gap between the base-pad and on-board unit. The system can be programmed for any type of battery. The transmitting and receiving sections communicate via Wi-Fi. Communications with the vehicle are via CANBus.

"Overall the adoption of electric industrial vehicles is fairly new, with many companies still relying on gas and LPG powered lifts," said a company spokesperson. "Delta's durable wireless charging solutions offer enhanced efficiency and eliminate wear and tear. As industrial facilities continue to scale up and increase in complexity, wireless charging solutions that can keep pace with these developments and enhance workflow will be imperative."
