Application Guide

The latest innovation to hit motive power is high frequency chargers. Ferro Magnetics™ has high frequency chargers for a wide range of applications from standard charging regimes up to the demanding amp output of fast charging. Peak high efficiency (93%) and peak power factor (95%) make these chargers a perfect choice for those users desiring a smaller carbon footprint while delivering a clean, cooler charge to their battery. Not every application is a good fit for high frequency charging. Click here for a white paper discussing high frequency vs. ferroresonant charging.

Opportunity/fast charging. Click here for a guide to opportunity charging. Ferro has multiple options for keeping your fleet running without requiring a battery change-out.

Ferro Magnetics™ has designed a charger for practically every industrial application. Our ferroresonant (FR) technology chargers with our latest technology controls deliver high efficiency (88%) and power factor (+90%) ; close to that of the latest high frequency chargers. FR chargers are known to last well beyond the 10 years that our transformers are warranted, delivering thousands of trouble free charge cycles at a very economical cost to the user.

For those users who need the most charger for the lowest cost we offer our value line VHS & VHT.

High efficiency and high power factor come standard on this ferroresonant charger designed as a made in America alternative to imported linear chargers - no need to sacrifice battery life & safety for low acquisition cost!
