EnerSys® Suite of Power Solutions Take Warehouse Operations to the NexSys® Level
READING, Pennsylvania, March 10, 2022 – EnerSys® (NYSE:ENS), the global leader in stored energy solutions for industrial applications, will feature its family of virtually maintenance-free NexSys® battery solutions at MODEX® 2022 in booth B7811. Sustainable NexSys® iON Lithium-ion (Li-ion) batteries and NexSys® PURE Thin Plate Pure Lead (TPPL) batteries are engineered to maximize productivity and minimize operational costs, while simultaneously reducing carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions and water consumption. EnerSys® will also display its proprietary EnSite™ modeling software and range of power management tools, designed to right-size lift truck battery and charger fleets, reveal operational data for performance improvement and deliver an overall lower Total Cost of Ownership (TCO). MODEX® 2022 will take place from March 28 to 31 at Atlanta’s Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, GA.
Ideal for heavy-duty applications, NexSys® iON batteries are manufactured with high performance cells to deliver high energy capacity in a smaller footprint. With modular construction, they can be customized to precise power and fleet demands to lower initial investment and can maintain a high State of Charge (SOC) as a result of faster recharge rate capabilities. The battery’s integrated Battery Management System (BMS) supports greater safety, reliability, and battery life, and is 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.
NexSys® PURE batteries are optimized for fast- and opportunity-charging and are the ideal solution for light- to medium-duty applications. They provide reliable power without the restrictive upkeep requirements of watering, equalizing and battery changing associated with conventional flooded lead acid batteries. They provide a lower cost alternative to Li-ion technology and can be used in conjunction with NexSys® iON batteries as a hybrid solution for the lowest TCO.
Eco-friendly NexSys® iON and NexSys® PURE batteries can eliminate the use of up to 13 gallons of distilled water every week, in turn, cutting the energy consumption required for water distillation and distribution. Additionally, both battery chemistries are more energy efficient per charge compared to flooded lead acid batteries. The NexSys® iON battery is approximately 28 percent more efficient and the NexSys® PURE battery is roughly 24 percent.
EnerSys® proprietary EnSite™ modeling software enables confident, data driven decisions regarding what battery chemistry – or combination of chemistries – is best suited for individual unique operations. The software uses specific detailed information to generate customized data and actionable intelligence to right-size a battery and charger fleet. By assessing multiple factors, including the number, size, and type of vehicles in operation as well as scheduling and charging requirements, EnSite™ modeling software can help guide proper battery and charger specification, resulting in enhanced fleet productivity.
“We are committed to working with our customers to ensure they are getting the most from their battery and charger fleet and that begins with determining the best power solution,” said Harold Vanasse, Senior Director of Marketing, Motive Power Global at EnerSys®. “Our EnSite™ modeling software streamlines the power selection process based on specific data, and also identifies operational challenges that can be improved by implementing the right power solution for a specific fleet. Our goal is to give our customers the right solution at the lowest TCO.”
EnerSys® power management tools translate data to actionable intelligence to boost productivity, cut costs and improve overall operations. The Wi-iQ® battery monitoring device captures key operational data, issues visual and audible alerts on important operational parameters and features a slim design for easy installation directly on the battery harness. The device wirelessly communicates metrics via Bluetooth to the Truck iQ™ smart battery dashboard, giving drivers a live view of their lift truck battery health to avoid costly unplanned downtime associated with premature battery failure from improper maintenance and charging practices. Lastly, the E Connect™ mobile app, available free for Android and iOS operating systems, allows users to see a real-time view of their battery and charger operating data in the palm of their hand for enhanced fleet management.
“At EnerSys, we are dedicated to exceeding customer expectations by delivering a safer, trouble-free and reliable power experience for optimal productivity. Equally important is to bring solutions that drive sustainable business practices to help build a better energy future,” continued Vanasse. “With sustainability, safety, productivity and convenience at the core of our company’s product engineering, our solutions are designed to provide lift truck fleet managers with a complete systems approach, regardless of vehicle type or scope of operations.”
