GREENVILLE, N.C. (July 18, 2016) - Although industrial forklift batteries eventually need replacement even in ideal conditions, deep discharge, overcharging, undercharging and poor maintenance practices can lead to premature failure. Yale Battery Vision is a new battery management solution that provides valuable insights to improve battery care and life.
Using Powered by PosiCharge™ technology, Yale Battery Vision monitors battery health and usage to help facilitate proper maintenance and warranty compliance. Installed in as little as 20 minutes, this innovative, low-profile device employs cellular communications to deliver key performance metrics like state-of-charge, water levels, voltage current and temperature.
In addition to 24/7 monitoring, Yale Battery Vision is supported by PosiNET® back-office data management software that offers extensive reporting capabilities and data analysis tools. Detailed daily tracking reports, weekly exception reports and lifetime statistical analysis help identify potential issues before they become larger problems and simplify warranty compliance.
"From missed shipments to unplanned downtime, the cost of operational blind spots is high," according to Steven LaFevers, Director of Aftermarket Solutions for Yale. "As such, poor operational visibility is no longer an option. With simple but powerful devices like Yale Battery Vision, fleet managers can make informed decisions to maximize profitability, productivity and safety."
