What You Will Learn

Wireless battery charging will transform the way that industrial lift truck batteries are charged. Not only will battery charging be faster and more efficient, it will be safer and more convenient. Learn how induction is used to wirelessly charge batteries and how it will eliminate the operator’s active involvement in battery charging. New charging and DC design concepts will be discussed as well as an overview of the efficiency, power and speed of this technology. This seminar will give the attendee a look into the future of wireless lift truck battery charging.
 

Key Takeaways

1. The basics of inductive (wireless) battery charging.
2. A timeline for commercialization of this technology in the material handling industry.
3. The impact of this technology on the design and operation of the DC, batteries and forklift trucks.
4. Factors to consider in purchasing a system, including Foreign Object Detection (FOD) and Metal Object Detection (MOD).
5. The facts behind magnetic field exposure and associated health risks.
