10 Apr Advanced Charging Technologies (ACT) Expands Portfolio of UL Certified, Outdoor Ground Support Equipment Chargers
La Mirada, California, April 8, 2019 —
Advanced Charging Technologies (ACT) announces the addition of the Quantum GSE- Q12 Charger to its portfolio of Quantum GSE Chargers – a line of UL Certified, Type 3R Outdoor Chargers designed specifically for Ground Support Equipment. The new Quantum GSE- Q12 doubles the output of the current product offering and extends the charging capabilities from 150A to 300A at 80V. Furthermore, the new Quantum GSE-Q12 Charger supports openCAN communication protocol enabling support for Li-Ion battery charging applications.
“The expansion of our Quantum GSE product line with the introduction of the Q12 will allow ACT to meet the charging needs of a variety of GSE equipment powered by lead acid and Li-Ion batteries, thereby opening up new market opportunities,” comments ACT CEO, Bob Istwan.
The Quantum GSE chargers feature a rugged UL Certified, Type 3R rated cabinet designed for outdoor installations. Like the Quantum series chargers, the Quantum GSE chargers feature modular technology, built-in redundancy, plug-n-play operation, and scalability through field expansion thus offering the highest reliability and the simplest serviceability in industrial charger technology. The Quantum chargers offer high energy efficiencies with peak efficiencies greater than 94 percent and full-cycle efficiencies greater than 93 percent.
One of the unique aspects of the Quantum charger is the integrated wireless communication that allows for seamless cloud integration, where real-time data is automatically uploaded to ACT’s cloud-based data management platform, ACTintelligent. End users can centrally manage their charger assets, analyze operational data, optimize battery and fleet performance, generate performance reports, and troubleshoot charger issues. In addition, wireless cloud integration allows for remote firmware and software updates enabling new functionalities to be added to the Quantum chargers with minimal effort.
The Quantum GSE chargers feature conventional, opportunity, and fast charge capabilities all integrated into a single charger design, targeted towards FBO, regional, and non-hub maintenance and logistics companies.
The Quantum chargers are UL/cUL certified, CEC compliant, and are backed with a 5-year warranty by ACT.
