Delta, a global provider of power and thermal management solutions, has introduced a brand new Wireless Charging System MOOVair Series – an innovative industrial charging solution for automated electric-driven vehicles. The newly presented MOOVair 1kW Wireless Charging System offers up to 1kW contactless, high efficient charging for all types of 24V/48V batteries, and is suitable for automated e-vehicles that require a frequent battery charge.

Alistair Coltart, the Line of Business Head for Industrial Battery Charging Solutions, said: “Driven by the growing trend of automation and digitalisation within industrial applications, the usage of electric driven, battery powered autonomous vehicles are heavily increasing. This trend is requiring an automated, high efficient and reliable battery charging process, which can be 100% supported by the wireless charging technology.

“With decades of experience in electric and electronic technology development, Delta is ready to help our customers on this. Our new product (the MOOVair Series) supports safe, smart, wireless charging so as to realize fully automated, unmanned operation for your AGVs, AMRs, and e-vehicles in factories or other application fields.”

The 1kW Wireless Charging System features a 1,000W output, peak efficiency of 93%, and power transmitted over a gap of up to 20mm. It is made of two parts: a transmitter connected to the AC supply as primary charging unit and an onboard charging unit connected to the battery. The onboard charging unit is available in versions suitable for 24V or 48V batteries, and multiple onboard units of either variant can share one transmitter pad saving space and cost.

The onboard charging unit is compact (168 x 82 x 28mm) and lightweight (1.5kg, onboard charging pad included), making it simple to place inside even small e-vehicles. With the charging pads protected against water and dust to IP65, and a robust design for shock and vibration, Delta the MOOVair Series has reliable performance even in harsh industrial environments.

Another highlighted feature of the MOOVair Series either is charging by inbuilt profiles covering a range of batteries (bespoke profiles available on request) or by CAN bus control. With no cable, no connector wear, no maintenance downtime, smart communication and remote management, the 1kW Wireless Charging System MOOVair truly realizes smart, automatic 24/7 operation for industrial electric vehicles manufacturers (AGV, AMR…), battery manufacturers, system integrators, industrial automation planners and solution providers.
