NexSys® AIR Wireless Charger
Are your AGVs truly automated? Or do you still need workers for plug-ins, battery changes and charger maintenance?
WE FREQUENTLY HEAR THREE CONCERNS FROM OPERATIONS RUNNING AUTOMATED EQUIPMENT:
Investments in automated guided vehicles (AGVs) can be sizable, but they enable operations to reduce reliance on workers - ensuring productivity and operational resilience. But traditional charging options, such as worker plug-ins, changing batteries or even “hot shoe” charging contacts each present barriers to true automation – jeopardizing AGV productivity and safety.
Traditional Charging Methods Prevent True Automation
Aside from inherent operational inefficiencies, having workers plug-in or change-out batteries still keeps productivity of your AGV fleet at the mercy of employees, whose availability and dependability are likely compromised by the pending global shortage of 85 million workers.
While some operations rely on “hot shoe” charging to reduce personnel concerns, their mechanical contacts can pose significant risk of arc flashes and pitting when not vigilantly maintained by workers – part of the very workforce they’re trying to minimize.
NexSys® AIR wireless chargers eliminate both worker dependence and hazards from worn charge contacts - delivering safe and reliable automated charging across a wide range of AGV applications. The advantages of NexSys® AIR wireless chargers enable you to make the most of your AGV investment.
