July 10, 2019 – Crown Equipment Corporation has debuted the V-HFM3 series of modular battery chargers for lead-acid and lithium-ion batteries.

The chargers are designed to help facility and maintenance managers reduce energy costs and extend the life of their forklift batteries. The V-HFM3 series, which is part of Crown Equipment’s full line of V-Force forklift chargers, batteries and accessories, is available first in North America and will roll out globally in the months ahead.

The V-HFM3 series offers an efficiency performance level of 97 per cent. Ease of use is enhanced through automatic voltage sensing technology that identifies a battery upon connection and intelligently applies the correct charging profile from 24-96 volt without the use of a monitoring device.

The V-HFM3 Series models require a smaller footprint and are lighter in weight compared to prior models. The product supports conventional, opportunity, fast and lithium-ion charging approaches depending upon the needs of the facility.

Additional accessories are available including a wired remote control for facilities storing chargers above batteries or in hard-to-reach locations, tower light kit for viewing charging status from a distance, and a battery monitoring identification device for greater control of battery health and longevity through more advanced reporting capabilities, simplified equalization approaches, and temperature adjustment for variable environments.
