Long lasting battery
04 March 2015
The heavy-duty Ironclad range of motive power batteries from EnerSys is said to offer more power, extended running times and longer life than comparable designs to support intensive lift truck operations and other demanding materials handling applications.
EnerSys reports that materials handling equipment will run for up to one hour longer on each charge, reducing the need for battery changes and maximising productivity in even the heaviest duty applications including busy distribution centres and other 24/7 operations such as airports and transport hubs.
The range is particularly suited to situations where longer truck run times are needed to minimise the use of spare batteries. Models rated from 276 to 1032Ah are available in standard sizes for small pallet trucks up to large reach and counterbalance trucks. The batteries are now available in the UK and Europe but have been extensively used in the USA.
