July 18, 2019: Battery manufacturer EnerSys is to launch another thin plate pure lead battery for motive power applications at an international exhibition on material handling equipment in September.
The NexSys PURE battery, which is a combination of advanced carbon and TPPL technology, will be launched at the IMHX 2019 in Birmingham, UK at the end of September.
The battery will complete the company’s range of NexSys offerings, said EnerSYs spokesman Jason Devonshire.
The company claims the battery offers a higher cycle life for applications that would normally require regular opportunity charging, such as pallet trucks.
Already launched in the UK this February, the NexSys iON, a lithium counterpart to the NexSys PURE, will also be on show at the exhibition.
The NexSys iON can be directly replaced with the TPPL option and vice versa, and both are compatible with power management technology also developed by EnerSys.
A battery monitoring device from EnerySys’ WI-IQ series collects data via wireless sensors in each battery, whether they are lead or lithium.
All NexSys batteries are available in standard and fast configurations so the right combination of battery, charger and monitoring system can be applied.
