Usage of IGBTs in ForkLifts

Repletion and dependability of the forklift are very important for your activities and your lifts are only as powerful as your charged batteries allow them to be. If your facility uses Ferro resonant or SCR battery chargers, you may want to consider the benefits of the high frequency opportunity chargers. You will no longer be suffered from the equipment downtime if you utilize opportunity charging. You’ll be able to utilize idle periods to charge batteries by its charging profile. Not only you will maximize the use of the truck idle time, you may eliminate the need to change batteries, reduce accidents changing batteries, eliminate the need for required battery-changing equipment and battery storage space, and reduce the number of batteries you’ll need to buy. Opportunity charging with high-frequency opportunity chargers also increases productivity by eliminating the need for an operator to leave the work area, travel to the battery room to change batteries, and then travel back to the work area. You will be able to eliminate your battery change room/area, as well as all its hotspots: charging and changing equipment and associated maintenance; a power-hungry ventilation system and its required service calls; and any upgrades to maintain OSHA standards. You can do all these things by simply switching to high frequency opportunity chargers. A full bridge IGBT switch mechanism is utilized by the high frequency charger to produce the cleanest DC output achievable from an industrial battery charger today. Your overall operating costs will go down by this excellent switching mode circuitry which gives you with the best of both worlds: lessened costs and onward productivity.
