EnerSys NexSys battery, charger
offer improved cycling, recharging
Feb 7, 2011 7:00 AM
The EnerSys NexSys battery and charger system provides a flexible, virtually maintenance-free energy system for small traction applications. Unlike conventional lead-acid batteries, NexSys batteries offer increased cycling performance and high-rate recharging capability, contributing to longer service life and increased machine availability.
NexSys batteries feature positive and negative plates with low impedance, high-corrosion-resistant thin-plate grids manufactured from pure lead. The NexSys battery offers high energy throughput up to three times the battery capacity per 24 hours, as well as an increased maintenance-free life cycle of up to 1,200 cycles at 60% depth of discharge (DOD). Additionally, the batteries feature a microporous glass mat separator with high electrolyte absorption and stability to enhance cyclic capability.
“The NexSys battery and charger system provides users with a faster, more flexible power solution and recharging system for applications such as floor care/cleaning machines, pallet trucks, and shuttle personnel carriers, to name a few,” said Steve Spaar, director of marketing for EnerSys.
Complementing its virtually maintenance-free characteristics, the EnerSys NexSys battery withstands shock and vibration while providing eco-friendly performance. Its minimum gassing makes it ideal for use in shops, public areas, and sensitive manufacturing areas. Additionally, NexSys batteries typically occupy up to 30% less space than the equivalent lead calcium batteries due to the thin plate design’s high energy density properties. NexSys batteries have a long shelf life—up to two years at 77° F.
EnerSys (NYSE: ENS) manufactures and distributes motive power batteries, chargers, power equipment, and battery accessories.
