  • fast charging
  • opportunity charging
  • maintenance-free, no topping up with water
  • low operating costs
  • long life > 3000 cycles
  • reliable operation

BENNING LIONIC® energy systems consist of 8 or 16 lithium iron phosphate (LiFePO4) cells arranged in series and are available for capacity ranges of 120 Ah, 240 Ah, 360 Ah and 480 Ah. The LIONIC® energy systems cover a very large proportion of the needs for electrically operated ground conveyors.

LIONIC® energy systems are about 50 % lighter and about 30 % smaller than comparable lead-acid batteries. Every energy system is fitted in a robust housing together with a Battery Management System (BMS) and can be integrated into standard battery trays.

The Battery Management System (BMS) ensures that voltage and temperature limits are maintained during the charging/discharging process. The individual cells are also monitored and are equalised in the event of potential deviations.

Make better use of equipment, increase cost efficiency

  • No need for a replacement battery
  • Opportunity charging possible at any time (25 % charge in 20 min)
  • 100 % charge in 2.0 h

LIONIC® energy systems are capable of fast charging and can also be opportunity charged. Charging is carried out at constant current.

In 2-shift operation, a replacement battery is not required if opportunity charging is carried out during breaks (1x15 min and 1x30 min per shift).

As an example, the fig. shows the capacity curve of a LIONIC® 24 V / 9 kWh (360 Ah) energy system for 2-shift operation with intermediate charging.

LIONIC® energy systems provide up to 30 % higher energy efficiency

Economic and environmental advantages:

  • Reduced energy costs
  • High efficiency
  • Emission-free
  • Low self-discharge
  • Energy recovery system e.g. during braking
  • Stand-by mode
  • Environmentally friendly
  • Recyclable
LIONIC® – The efficient energy system with the following cost advantages
The additional cost of investing in a LIONIC® energy system is compensated for by the savings in operating costs after just 2 years.
The additional cost of investing in a LIONIC® energy system is compensated for by the savings in operating costs after just 2 years.
  • Approx. 30 % reduced energy costs
  • Approx. 75 % lower maintenance costs
  • Approx. 60 % lower battery handling costs
LIONIC® energy system – no need to invest in central battery rooms
LIONIC<sup>®</sup> – operationally reliable and emission-free ideal for the food trade and refrigerated warehouses

Charging is carried out on site

  • No central charging station
  • No need for battery changing equipment
  • No ventilation and extraction systems
  • No central water filling
  • Short distances to charging point

LIONIC® energy systems can be charged at decentralised charging points. As no gassing occurs during charging and LIONIC® energy systems do not contain liquid electrolyte, the special regulations for central battery charging stations (e.g. DIN 50272-3, BGHW, ZVEI datasheet) do not apply in many respects to the charging of LIONIC® energy systems.

Investment costs for setting up these charging points are significantly reduced, as no special ventilation or acid-resistant floor material is required.

In many cases, working time is increased due to the reduced distance travelled to reach the decentralised charging station.

These days, it is essential for battery-powered industrial trucks to have a high availability and to operate reliably and efficiently.

The control of the charging/discharging process for the traction batteries and the monitoring of battery temperatures are important measures for ensuring the maximum availability of the truck fleet at all times.
