Schaltbau GmbH at the transport logistic for the first time

(PresseBox) (München, ) At this year's transport logistic exhibition, Schaltbau GmbH will be presenting an array of products designed for the makers of electrically powered industrial trucks, batteries and charging devices. The company will be showcasing charging connectors, combination contactors, battery contactors and snap-action switches. The most important product on display will be the LV-HPC (High Power Connector) series charging connector. The transport logistic will be held in Munich from 4 - 7 June 2013. You can find out more about our range of products at our stand B1.304.

State-of-the-art batteries for industrial trucks are required to release the stored energy as slowly as possible during operation and then recharge as quickly as possible, in order to minimise downtimes and reduce costs. This challenging performance can only be attained by using high charging currents. The contacts do not overheat in the process and the LV-HPC series meets these standards for high current-carrying capacity in accordance with DIN VDE 0623-589. A red-coded keying plug signifies operation at 120, 250 and 400 amperes for charging wet-cell batteries and serves to prevent mismating at the same time.

Charging lithium-ion batteries

The series is also well suited for use with lithium-ion batteries, which can be charged at a considerably faster rate than lead batteries. Overall, this contact system offers the following key advantages: constant high contact pressure, high-quality solid power contacts, continuous low resistance, low contact warming and high resistance to shock and vibration.

Combination contactors and battery contactors

The range of products on display will be broadened to include combination contactors, which unite a wide variety of electrical and mechanical functions in one single component. Instead of having to wire lots of single parts, manufacturers of industrial trucks now only need to install one unit, effectively cutting assembly costs. Battery contactors from Schaltbau are equipped with a magnetic blowout feature and are suitable for use as both main and auxiliary contactors. Further exhibits include charging connectors such as the LV500 series, which are suitable for fast charging systems such as those widely used in the USA. The range of products on display is completed by Schaltbau's outstanding snap-action switches, which are particularly suitable for safety-related applications such as in the tiller heads or brake controls of electric pallet trucks.
