Lithium-ion-batteries for industrial trucks & automated guided vehicles: etaSTORE
Batteries for AGV, AMR & mobile robots
Batteries for industrial trucks, mobile robots and autonomous vehicles have very special requirements in terms of performance, lifespan and charging cycles, which is why high-quality lithium-ion batteries are important to avoid unnecessary costs. Knowledge of how to correctly charge the batteries is also important to ensure safety and maintain the functionality of the batteries for industrial trucks.
Lithium-ion batteries offer numerous advantages. They have a higher efficiency, a much higher energy density and a longer life cycle. They are also much less maintenance than lead acid batteries. Above all, it is possible to charge lithium-ion batteries during short breaks throughout operation with the etaLINK wireless charging system. This wireless in-process-charging is essential for the complete automation of the logistics process, also for two or three working shifts.
The lithium-ion battery technology for driverless transport systems have, in addition to the much longer operating time, lifespan and faster charging time, the advantage of being charged much more often and you no longer have to be afraid of the batteries being completely discharged. In the medium term, such batteries are cheaper in contrast to the classic lead-acid batteries (SLAB).
Lithium-Ion batteries for your AGV
Wherever the highest demands are placed on endurance, special Li-ion batteries are required. The disadvantages of classic lead-acid batteries are:
Cleaning and greasing the battery poles
Checking the connections
Checking and filling up the battery water levels
Cleaning the chargers
They are completely eliminated with the Wiferion system solution, consisting of etaSTORE batteries and the etaLINK systems.
With etaSTORE we rely entirely on lithium-ion battery technology. It enables in-process-charging, has long lifetimes, significantly simplified processes, battery management and lean infrastructures – and is therefore the most economical solution in logistics in the long term. The close cooperation among other things with Japanese battery cell manufacturers guarantees the outstanding longevity of the energy storage.
All batteries can be used modularly, have a BMS and meet the current applicable IEC standard 62619 for use in industrial applications as well as UL 2271 – so you can also use etaSTORE outdoors. etaSTORE from Wiferion delivers a voltage of 24 V and can be connected in series in pairs of two. Thereforey you are able to replace lead-acid batteries, like those used in many service robots, AGVs and electric-powered forklifts.
