Thanks to digital networking, the Charge & Connect cloud-based charging solution from Fronius provides real-time data on the availability and status of the charging infrastructure. Numerous analysis functions help to detect application errors at an early stage, avoiding downtime and reducing ongoing costs.
The new Battery Connect feature is an add-on to the tried and tested Charge & Connect networking solution that enables digital battery management. When working with batteries equipped with the Fronius TagID battery sensor system, fleet operators can not only monitor and manage the charging behavior via Charge and Connect, but also the battery pool—and they can do so fully automatically.
Companies can keep a close eye on their entire battery pool and are notified promptly of the time in use, critical behaviors, or past events. Battery Connect identifies batteries that behave erroneously during charging, allowing appropriate measures to be implemented quickly and unplanned outages to be minimized.
Thanks to Battery Control, a lack of current inventory lists for the battery pool becomes a thing of the past, as users have a clear overview of their entire battery supply at all times. This creates transparency, provides a reliable basis for budgeting, and ensures safe and reliable operation of the forklift fleet.
Thanks to continuous monitoring, potential problems can be detected at an early stage—thereby minimizing downtimes and increasing the service life of the batteries. Preventive maintenance enables the efficient use of resources and reduces the total operating costs, while companies also gain insights into energy consumption and performance efficiency. This guarantees targeted optimization of charging cycles and energy flows. Battery Connect not only reduces costs and increases performance, but also contributes to an improved environmental balance and long-term competitiveness.
