Eliminating battery changes reduces risk of personnel injury during the battery change operation and enhances pedestrian safety in the vicinity of heavily congested battery change area by reducing lift truck traffic
2. Eliminate Battery Room or Charging Area
Eliminating battery conventional charging and change equipment results in substantial savings
3. Increased Productivity
Increased availability and productivity – elimination of battery change time, transit time and waiting in line at charge area
Example: 1 battery change per shift, 15 min. battery change, 2 shifts per day, 260 work days per year, 50 trucks, with operator pay and benefits of $18/hr=$117,000/year in productivity savings by eliminating battery changing
4. Reduced number of batteries
5. Battery Change Area rework avoided
Customers typically upgrade, re-rack, re-work acid wash systems periodically to maintain OSHA standards and efficiency
6. Eliminate Change Equipment & Maintenance
Because the equipment is no longer needed, the maintenance performed on it is eliminated.
7. Reduced Truck & Battery Maintenance
Truck maintenance is reduced because Infinity HF Charger encourages operation at higher battery voltages; battery maintenance is reduced because the Infinity HF Charger accurately controls charge – no damage from handling battery since it remains enclosed in compartment
8. Reduced Electrical Costs
Infinity HF Charger controls charge to eliminate unintentional overcharge and resulting energy waste; Replaces typical 110% overcharge of conventional chargers with a 93% Energy Efficiency rating.
9. Eliminate Change Area Ventilation
Ventilation systems are required for conventional battery change areas. Requirement eliminated with Infinity HF Charger
10. Truck Costs
To facilitate exchanging batteries, some trucks require rollers on Teflon slides.
