EnerSys® expands battery charger offering

EnerSys®, a global provider of stored energy solutions for industrial applications, recently expanded its NexSys®battery charger offering to now include NexSys®+ battery charger models.

NexSys®+ high-frequency modular battery chargers are ideal for Automated Guided Vehicle (AGV) applications that require communication with operation systems. They offer multiple communication platforms, intelligent charging with advanced efficiency and the flexibility to maintain peak efficiency at all times.

The modular construction adapts to a wide range of battery capacities, allowing potential reduction of the number of chargers in a fleet. Charger modules are automatically switched on and off based on the charge cycle requirements, and should a module develop a minor fault, the charger bypasses the module for continued operation and continuation of the charging process without interruption. NexSys® battery chargers are designed for use with NexSys® Thin Plate Pure Lead (TPPL) high performance Absorbed Glass Mat (AGM) batteries.

The flexibility of NexSys® batteries provides increased autonomy to the user. Unlike conventional AGM batteries, NexSys® batteries can be charged at high charge rates without affecting the life of the battery. Charging NexSys®batteries at high rates throughout the shift day virtually eliminates the need to change spent batteries. NexSys®AGM battery technology eliminates the need to add water further reducing maintenance costs.

The expanded NexSys® battery charger product portfolio now includes NexSys®+ single-phase and three-phase battery chargers, all equipped with a 4.3” multi-color dashboard screen and an easy to use programmable menu. The NexSys® and NexSys®+ battery chargers utilize the exclusive NexSys® battery charging profiles to maximize performance and life of the NexSys® TPPL batteries.

“With the addition of the NexSys®+ battery charger models, we’re able to offer a wider range of technologies designed for the NexSys® battery product offering,” says Steve Spaar, marketing director Americas for EnerSys. “The NexSys® battery and charger system will change the way you work, eliminating battery watering maintenance, eliminating battery changes and optimizing battery cycle life.”
