EnerSys® Suite of Power Management Tools Elevate Fleet Performance
READING, Pennsylvania, June 15, 2021 – EnerSys® (NYSE:ENS), the global leader in stored energy solutions for industrial applications, is providing a real-time window into battery health with state-of-the-art power management tools, designed to maximize battery life while reducing operational downtime. The tools monitor and uncover a range of day-to-day fleet operational data to reveal opportunities for improvement and identify early warning signs before leading to premature battery failure and lost productivity.
The recently upgraded Wi-iQ® battery monitoring device features a slim design to easily install directly on the battery harness, LED display screen and integrated alarms to issue visible and audible alerts when it is time to charge the battery. The device captures key battery operating data including amp hours (Ah), temperature, voltage and electrolyte levels, and wirelessly communicates these performance metrics with the Truck iQ™ smart battery dashboard.
The Truck iQ™ smart battery dashboard features a lift truck-mounted display module that gives drivers a live view of key battery operating data captured by the Wi-iQ® battery monitoring device and communicated via Bluetooth to the dashboard display. Featuring a 4.3-inch (10.9 cm) touchscreen that is mounted directly to the vehicle dashboard, operators have access to immediate battery information in an accessible, easy-to-read format. The display screen starts up automatically on vehicle power-up and notifies the driver via alarms and alerts as necessary.
“These innovative battery management tools are engineered to work together to support higher reliability and longer battery life,” said Harold Vanasse, Senior Director of Marketing, Motive Power Global at EnerSys. “They are also designed to protect and deliver increased performance of existing power assets with informed, data-driven, actionable intelligence to better manage fleet operations.”
Available for free for Android™ and iOS® operating systems, and compatible with both the Truck iQ™ smart battery dashboard and the Wi-iQ® battery monitoring device, the EnerSys® E Connect™ mobile app allows users to see a real-time view of their battery and charger operating data on smartphones or tablet devices for enhanced fleet management.
