Philadelphia Scientific, a manufacturer of industrial battery components and accessories, has introduced iBOS basic, the latest addition to its line of intelligent battery organizing systems. The iBOS basic system provides the same battery management technology and many of the same features as Philadelphia Scientific's iBOS PRO, but it is designed specifically for small fleet owners and is set at a lower cost.
iBOS basic can manage up to 31 chargers within a single pool of batteries with the same voltage used for the same type of forklift truck. Like iBOS PRO, the system instructs operators which battery to choose based upon which one has had the longest cool down time since charging. A backlit display clearly indicates the number of the battery to take next. If an operator selects an incorrect battery, a built-in alarm sounds. The display screen provides detailed information about the fleet, including the number of batteries presently available, battery availability over the previous 24 hours, the number of batteries selected, and the percentage of incorrect selections. iBOS basic can be installed by the warehouse's own staff.
