DYNAMIC POWER LIMITATION
MICROPOWER GIVES YOU FULL POWER CONTROL
DPL Dynamic Power Limitation assures that a group of chargers never exceeds the total amount of mains power available. It eliminates the risk for high power peaks caused by simultaneous fast charging. DPL features automatically full power when available and shared power when needed without any operator input (after installation). With DPL there is no need for extra wiring since it uses wireless communication (up to 30 meters).
How does DPL work?
DPL works through the creation of a power group consis-ting of one master and up to 31 slave chargers. The slaves and master in the group will request their power needed.
The power allocation is then based on the battery’s state of charge (SOC) – low SOC gives big power share and vice versa. In a standard operation the master will send power allocation for each charger in the power group once every minute and the slaves will send power request update in 3-minute intervals. If battery is connected or disconnected a request will be send immediately.
DPL is compatible with all Access and Lion chargers*, BMS (Battery Management System), BBC (Best Battery Choice) and all charging modes. Micropowers BMU is recommended for lead acid solutions for accurate SOC indication.
* Access 30 and Lion 30 are not compatible with DPL. For more information about Micropower’s products, contact us at +27 83 508 4897.
WORRIED ABOUT AC MAINS TRIPPING WHEN
FAST CHARGING YOUR LITHIUM BATTERY FORKLIFTS?
- DPL Gives you full control of power usage
- Assures that a group of chargers never exceeds the total amount of mains power available. It eliminates the risk for high power peaks caused by simultaneous faste
- DPL automatically distributes full power when available and shared power when needed without any operator input and no cable required upto 30m.
GET Ready BMU & Chargers
The new generation of BMUs and Micropower chargers facilitates monitoring of the complete battery fleet via the GET App.
GET is a cloud based IoT application launched by Micropower.It is compatible with all Micropower products and connected to Micropower Support Centre.It is aimed at optimizing battery and charger usage in the material handling industry.
The products can automatically upload statistical information to the GET Cloud or manually extract it through the GET mobile application. These products can report data, service status/trouble shooting once they are configured with the GET system.
The GET Connected Gateway interacts with all Access and Lion chargers and GET Ready BMUs. It extracts data and uploads it to the GET Cloud. It also send configurations, commands and updates to compatible devices. The GET Connected Gatewaycommunicates with Internetover ethernet, WiFi or 4G.
With the help of GET Service Tool you can download the complete charging statistics wirelessly, from the last 2000 charging cycles with history, events and 7000 momentary measurements and upload those to the GET Cloud. With the GET Service Tool, you can also configure Micropower chargers and GET Ready BMU parameters wirelessly from your PC.
GET allows for overall control over the fleet remotely thus increasing operational efficiency. The constant monitoring leads to economy of time and service and maintenance, hence increasing the uptime.
