Organised Usage Frequency with Next! Battery Selector
In charging stations for industrial trucks, full charging and regular use of all batteries is very important for economic and trouble-free operation of the trucks.
However, when replacing batteries - particularly during operation across shifts - the usage frequency of the individual batteries is often very different.
Usually when changing the batteries, those at the front of the charging station are given preference to those located in the centre and the rear.
Consequently, batteries that are harder to access are used less frequently. Over time, this irregular usage pattern can lead to a wide variation in the number of charging/discharging cycles for each individual battery. Equally, the storage period of the batteries in the charging station following recharge can also vary significantly.
With the Next! Battery Selector described below, the desired order of use of all charged batteries in a charging station can be achieved.
This simple indicator lamp system also prevents selection errors if a large number of charge stations are deployed in a confined space.
Special features of the Next! Battery Selector
- optimises the use of replacement batteries
- ensures the correct order of use after charging
- extends the battery life
- reduces maintenance costs
- prevents selection errors due to distinct indicator lights
