The classification of autonomous power supplies, despite the similarity of the circuit diagram of the device to each other of various models of this equipment, is carried out depending on the format of their operational purpose. So, presented here 80V traction batteries , which are used on electric forklift trucks, in contrast to the usual starter batteries for motorists, do not have high characteristics of starting (instantaneous) currents. Their main purpose:
- Adequate service life.
- Transmission of electricity with specified values even when almost completely discharged.
- No destructive processes with deep discharge.
- Resistant to low or high ambient temperatures.
All this is achieved through the use of thicker and more massive lead plates in the working capacities (banks) of the battery, as well as a durable and sealed case. At the same time, the type and density of the electrolyte used (1.27 g /cubic cm) in them is a complete analogue of classic starter devices.
Selection of traction batteries for special equipment
Traction storage batteries, taking into account the high costs of manufacturers for components and consumables in their manufacture, have a higher cost in comparison with starter counterparts. Despite the possibility of working to a state of full discharge, during intensive operation, a forced shutdown of equipment due to their fault may occur at the most crucial moment. It is better to avoid such situations in advance, more carefully approaching the choice of starter batteries:
- Well-known manufacturer (brand).
- Time-tested supplier.
- Possibility to exchange old batteries for new ones at an additional charge.
Unfortunately, the quality guarantee for batteries is of a special, specific nature, but nevertheless it exists (it provides for an examination to establish the presence of a defect or defect made by the manufacturer). That is why, when purchasing this type of equipment, it is necessary to clarify the possibility and conditions of such an examination if problems appear after the start of operation of the purchased products.
