Batteries Provide More Power for Lift Trucks

EnerSys' NexSys batteries charge in under an hour.

Featuring proprietary Thin Plate Pure Lead (TPPL) technology, the NexSys battery portfolio includes configurations that can fast-charge in just under an hour and be opportunity charged to work for up to sixteen hours. NexSys batteries give operators the ability to charge during breaks, at the end of a shift or anytime Class I, II, and III vehicles are stopped. NexSys batteries can even be put back into service before they are fully charged.


The expanded battery line also provides energy throughput of up to 160% in a 24-hour period and offers extended life cycles exceeding 1,500 cycles at 60% Depth of Discharge (DOD).


Classified as non-spillable electric storage batteries, NexSys batteries do not require watering, eliminating associated labor demands and overwatering risks. Ideal for use in multi-shift operations, They can eliminate the need for battery change-outs. Typical applications include counterbalance trucks, reach trucks, pallet trucks, order pickers, Automated Guided Vehicles (AGVs) and Laser Guided Vehicles (LGVs).


The rugged construction of NexSys batteries features Absorbed Glass Mat (AGM) separators for extreme shock and vibration resistance, making them well suited for high-use applications. TPPL technology uses only the highest purity lead in the positive and negative plates, and a very high-purity sulfuric acid to minimize the potential risk of corrosion and sulfation common to conventional lead acid batteries. The ultra-thin positive plate design allows more plates to fit in the cell; more plates mean more power generated in 30% less space than conventional lead acid batteries.


NexSys batteries also deliver high electrolyte absorption and stability to help enhance cyclic capability. With a shelf life of up to two years at 68 degrees Fahrenheit (20 degrees Celsius), NexSys batteries provide unmatched performance across a wide range of temperatures, also making them ideal for cold storage applications.
