EnerSys introduces new battery management system

EnerSys has launched a new battery status indicator, the Hawker BS140, to enable customers to manage battery fleets for warehouse trucks and other mechanical handling equipment more efficiently.

The system is designed to manage up to 40 chargers alone, or 160 when up to four Hawker panels are merged. EnerSys said it could manage chargers and batteries with different specifications.

The company said Hawker can also collect and store battery status data, such as the time and date of charges, changes and alarms, which can be transferred to a USB memory stick to any PC running the software.
