EnerSys continues to deliver hassle-free power with the launch of NexSys PURE PACK battery and on-board charger system. The new comprehensive solution consists of the latest generation of NexSys PURE Thin Plate Pure Lead (TPPL) batteries, combined with an integrated Delta-Q on-board charger and Wi-iQ battery monitoring device. This all-inclusive solution provides a predictable and reliable power source with the flexibility to fast or opportunity charge from the convenience of any 110-volt standard power outlet and the intelligence to capture a range of key operating data to help ensure peak battery performance and dependability.
“As the EnerSys product portfolio continues to evolve, it is our mission to provide customers with exceptional products and management tools that not only deliver on performance but also enhance the operator experience,” said Harold Vanasse, Senior Director of Marketing, Motive Power Americas at EnerSys. “The NexSys® PURE PACK solution takes our virtually maintenance-free battery power to the next level by combining it with state-of-the-art monitoring software and integrated charging capabilities for a more reliable and further simplified power experience.”
The company’s latest generation of NexSys PURE batteries features an advanced carbon additive in the TPPL chemical composition, providing increased cycle life and higher energy throughput for a wide variety of industrial and commercial vehicle applications. As a result of their proprietary design, they deliver robust, hassle-free power without the restrictive upkeep requirements of watering, equalizing and battery changing tied to conventional flooded lead acid batteries.
Designed to complement the latest NexSys PURE battery charging profile, the Delta-Q on-board charger plugs into any AC socket for more flexible charging and higher productivity. The added convenience of safe, fast and efficient recharging can help reduce application downtime while eliminating the need for dedicated charging areas. The high-performance Delta-Q IC650 charger is specifically programmed and calibrated to deliver a proprietary algorithm for NexSys PURE battery storage capabilities, maximizing energy throughput.
To ensure proper battery charging and discharging, the Wi-iQ monitoring device tracks State of Charge (SOC), discharge and charge current, as well as battery temperature and voltage. The Wi-iQ battery monitoring device installs directly on the battery harness and communicates via Bluetooth to remote battery sensors, enabling a clean, comprehensive data collection method. The sensors provide a continuous wireless data stream that is processed and stored by the Wi-iQ monitoring device. Available for Android and iOS operating systems on smartphones or tablets, the E Connect smart app allows users to collect and share the Wi-iQ battery monitoring device and charger data via the cloud.
“The Wi-iQ battery monitoring device is a core component of the NexSys PURE PACK battery. By detecting the early warning signs of battery abuse, it allows operators to correct potentially harmful practices and allows NexSys PURE batteries the opportunity to reach their full operational throughput and cycle life potential,” added Vanasse. “Add to that the convenience of the Delta-Q on-board charger and the NexSys PURE PACK battery gives operators everything they need in one exclusive system for even more hands-off power to streamline operations and reduce overall Total Cost of Ownership (TCO).”
