Along with providing vital fleet management information, InfoLink offers Battery Health Report Cards that help improve battery performance and decision making. These “report cards” are delivered to both customers and Lift Power, so we can work togeter to discover how the information can best be utilized in order for the customer to make better decisions. Data collected by InfoLink’s Battery Performance Monitoring includes:
This data is extremely useful because it can be used by Lift Power to make recommendations as things change within a customer’s operation. For example, if an operation adds another shift, power consumption completely changes because there is now an additional eight (or more) hours of operation.
This also internally changes the warranty cycle of a battery because warranties are designed to look at total amp hours consumed over a five-year period, so if amp hour consumption is doubled by an additional shift, the warranty period will shrink. Understanding situations like this helps Lift Power manage customer expectations and make optimal recommendations.
Battery change management made easy, EnerSys’ EZ Select System helps operations ensure productivity and time aren’t wasted. This intelligent technology gives the power of Smart Battery Change, a management system that takes the manual guesswork out of changing and charging material handling equipment batteries. The EZ Select System allows operators to avoid changing out a depleted battery for another battery without a full charge by directing them to fully charged batteries. EnerSys’ EZ Select System prioritizes batteries based on charge and cooldown time, all while collecting data that can be later used to identify savings opportunities.
