Lithium batteries: safety first!
Another critical aspect to bear in mind for the electrification of construction vehicles, heavy-duty material handling equipment or the various applications serving the Ground Support Equipment segment is compliance with stringent safety standards, which Flash Battery has always guaranteed by choosing to use a very specific chemistry, i.e. LFP chemistry, which most closely matches the needs of the industrial sector in terms of safety thanks to its high temperature of decomposition and slow release of heat. This combination avoids thermal runaway, thus ensuring a high level of safety, including under the most critical conditions.
But it’s not just a question of chemistry. The safety of industrial applications also comes from two other key factors, which only a manufacturer with experience and knowledge can provide: the correct assembly of the battery pack and the use of smart control electronics that can control and monitor the behaviour of the individual cells in real time, such as voltage and temperature, to allow timely action to be taken in the event of anomalies. This ensures safety and improves performance at the same time.
Predictive battery maintenance for maximum performance!
Last but not least is the optimisation of machine performance. OEMs and manufacturers in the Construction, Material Handling and GSE sectors are increasingly looking for battery systems that are able to bring added value in terms of optimising application use and improving the overall performance of the equipment.
This is where the Flash Battery proprietary remote control system comes in. Flash Data Center, is a true partner in the field of predictive maintenance which, since the first version was implemented in 2013, has been supporting manufacturers of industrial machines and vehicles, providing detailed information 24/7 and in real time on the functioning and methods of use of the batteries installed on their equipment all over the world. In its latest release, Flash Data Center takes advantage of the most recent artificial intelligence and machine learning technologies to analyse all battery operating parameters (SOH, voltage, current, temperature, analysis of charging/discharging times, etc.) and makes it possible not only to know in advance how a battery is used and what stress it is put under, but also allows the effective life of the battery installed on the equipment to be estimated and the future behaviour to be predicted. Essential information to help correct and improve the performance of the machine itself, thus increasing productivity.
Lithium batteries and powertrains: Flash Battery will be waiting for you at Stand 2022 at IVT EXPO
Partnerships, synergies, trends and increasingly customised requests: these aspects speak for themselves and confirm just how much the electric world is in a state of flux throughout Europe, ready for the switchover in most industrial sectors.
Together with its strategic powertrain partners, the Flash Battery sales team will be attending IVT Expo from 28 to 29 June at Stand 2022, ready to provide effective, comprehensive and customised responses to all electrification demands from the market.
