GNB Industrial Power, part of Exide Technologies, has unveiled a TENSOR xGEL battery, which it says can reduce energy consumption, increase working hours and running time significantly in various applications.
It uses the company’s dry fit technology, removing the need for a complex infrastructure for water refilling. Also, there is a much smaller risk of downtimes caused by incorrect battery handling.
Dr Kai Ruth, senior product manager, motive power, said: “We have shown that the TENSOR xGEL can lower the total cost of ownership for our customers. Opportunity charging within two-shift operations as well as outdoor or low temperature use will particularly benefit from TENSOR xGEL.”
