Traction batteries for logistics

In the logistics sector, a large number of electrically operated conveyor belts are used. The forklift truck is the most important, but trucks, tractors and other vehicles are also used. A major aspect of the operation of these devices is the power supply and traditional lead acid batteries are used for this purpose. Meanwhile, there is yet another alternative. RKB offers modern LiIon batteries with numerous advantages, ensuring conveyor belts run efficiently and in a cost-effective way.

High energy density for a space-saving design

Lithium batteries have a very high energy density. This means that the batteries are significantly smaller and lighter than the conventional lead-acid battery. This makes it possible to construct particularly small vehicles, and it is also possible to install considerably more batteries in the previously required space in order to increase the service life.

High current load capacity for optimum performance

Traction batteries with lithium-iron phosphate are characterised by a very high current-carrying capacity out. This ensures that even devices with a very high power can be operated.

Life optimisation through rapid charging

The charging times of the LiIon batteries are significantly lower than lead acid batteries. In connection with the already higher capacity, this contributes to its lifetime optimisation. For forklift trucks and other conveyors, this improves the relationship between working time and charging time and increases efficiency.

Universally applicable due to high-temperature utilisation range

Lithium batteries can even cope with extreme temperatures, ranging from -20 ° C to + 60 ° C. Instantly ready for use so are ideal for use when the vehicles are outdoors in winter.

Low maintenance and long life

Lithium batteries are maintenance-free, which reduces operating costs. In addition, they are characterised by a very high cyclical number compared to lead acid. The long service life also contributes to cost-efficient use.

Low self-discharge

It is effective in companies in which the respective vehicles are only occasionally used. The low self-discharge of the traction batteries is very positive so providing an even longer service life is not a problem.
