The three models in the IC Series lineup provide 650, 900 and 1200 watts of DC output power, respectively, and all are available in 24-, 36- and 48-volt models.

The company says full commercial production begins in March 2016. Specifications for the chargers are available at

The chargers will meet the machine uptime requirements of users such as rental and construction companies, said Jeff Everett, IC Series product manager at Delta-Q. “As a common technology platform, these chargers make machines easier to use and maintain, and provide flexibility for different battery types."

IC Series chargers have IP66-rated ingress protection to seal out dirt and fluids; their mechanical design and component selection help resist vibration, shock and temperature extremes. 

All IC Series chargers have a wide AC input range and are usable on any single-phase electrical grid worldwide. The IC650 holds broad regulatory approvals and identical approvals are intended for the IC900 and IC1200.
