EnerSys® is Taking Safety to the Next Level with Lithium-ion (Li-ion) Underwriter Laboratories (UL) Listing

READING, Pennsylvania, March 8, 2022 – EnerSys® (NYSE:ENS), the global leader in stored energy solutions for industrial applications, is taking industrial, electric-powered vehicle safety to the next level by obtaining UL 2580 Listing of its NexSys® iON batteries. Underwriters Laboratories (UL) is a global safety certification company that delivers Testing, Inspection, and Certification (TIC), training and advisory services worldwide. The UL 2580 Listing applies to batteries in electric vehicles such as forklift trucks, Automated Guided Vehicles (AGVs), and Autonomous Mobile Robots (AMRs) used in the material handling industry. UL 2580 Listing includes the assessment of several safety protocols such as simulated abuse conditions, as well as electrical, mechanical, and environmental testing. With the UL 2580 Listing of NexSys® iON batteries, EnerSys® is committed to providing safe, dependable, and resilient power solutions for material handling applications.

Combining the latest Li-ion chemistry with cost-effective modularity, NexSys® iON batteries are engineered with high performance cells to deliver high energy capacity in a smaller footprint. They are also designed to meet Automotive / Rigorous Functional Safety Standard ISO 26262, making EnerSys® the first battery manufacturer to bring this compliance standard to the material handling industry.

“ISO 26262 is an automotive industry standard that far exceeds industrial compliance requirements which is why we developed our integrated Battery Management System (BMS) for NexSys® iON batteries according to this prestigious safety standard,” said Harold Vanasse, Senior Director of Marketing, Motive Power Global at EnerSys. “Now, with the addition of UL 2580 Listing, this further exemplifies our commitment to reach new heights of product safety.”

Ideal for heavy-duty applications, virtually maintenance-free NexSys® iON batteries feature an integrated Battery Management System (BMS) that supports greater safety, reliability and battery life by performing auto-diagnosis, voltage limitation (charge and discharge) and communication of performance data. With modular construction, NexSys® iON batteries are precisely engineered according to operational demand for a lower initial investment and can maintain a high State of Charge (SOC) because of its speed of recharge capabilities.
