Thanks to their ‘delayed charging start’ and ‘calendar function’ features, Fronius battery charging systems
can optimise the charging start of the forklift truck fleet. Users can set the charging start time to their preference, allowing individual charging processes – and thus the energy consumption – to be spread out over time so that peak currents do not occur. Using the battery charging systems’ calendar function, users can also specify when they prefer charging to start or finish – regardless of when the battery is connected. Operators of large forklift truck fleets are thus able to start the charging process in individual departments or charging stations at different times and thus extend the maximum available time. By avoiding the simultaneous peak current consumption of the battery charging systems in this way, energy costs are drastically reduced.
