The current situation is challenging companies in a variety of ways. For many of them, the lockdown has been followed by high levels of activity. Flexibility is critical, as usage and charging times change at short notice. This presents users of lead-acid batteries with particular difficulties, as they usually take around eight hours to charge. Back-up batteries, including the requisite infrastructure, are associated with high procurement costs and an extra workload in day-to-day operations.
Opportunity charging made easy
The new Selectiva 4.0 generation of chargers from Fronius provides an innovative solution for charging lead-acid batteries in extra-quick time: using the Power Charging option the state of charge can be boosted from 30 percent to 80 percent in under three hours. This allows temporary utilisation peaks or a change to multi-shift operation to be effected without further ado and with no need for additional manual input.
