Efficiency with Ease

Achieve energy efficiency with easy installation, simple configuration and minimal investment.

38%

Power Savings

The V-HFE charger offers more efficiency over the entire charging cycle. Save thousands of dollars over the life of the battery when compared with traditional Ferro and SCR chargers.

93%

Charge Efficiency

With the ability to achieve 93 percent efficiency over an entire charge cycle, reduced amp draw rates result in lower charging costs.

Easy Configuration

V-HFE Series Chargers provide nine models in voltage ratings of 24, 36 and 48 volts with two charge profiles and flexible configuration from the charger’s front panel.

Maximize Battery Life

IEI (constant current – constant voltage – constant current) charge profile reduces the amount of heat generated during the entire charge cycle, minimizing battery-damaging heat. By monitoring the battery’s change in voltage over time, the charger prevents the battery from over and under charging, maximizing your battery and charger efficiency.

Simple, Front Panel Configuration

There’s no cable, software or complex internal switch configurations to consider. All programming is completed using the front-mounted display screen and keypad. Select either the conventional or cold storage profile, then customize your configuration:
 

• Battery Capacity

• Cable Length

• Equalization Cycle/Immediate

• Start Delay

• Cool Down Period

• Charge Profile

Easy to Move, Easy to Install

The V-HFE Charger is a fraction of the size and weight of traditional chargers, making it easier to install them in tight warehouse quarters. Its smaller footprint occupies approximately 67% less space so your charger space can also be used more efficiently. A universal mounting bracket is included that enables you to mount the charger on a wall, shelf or rack. Its light weight makes it easy to move and easy to store.
