As SPAR operates a shift system, the forklift trucks and their batteries must be designed for long periods of use. The 50 Hz battery chargers were kept in a separate area in the basement – this was inconvenient and took up much valuable time. The warehouse management team therefore decided to modernise the charging infrastructure.
Fronius developed a customised complete system for SPAR. The most important change was moving the charging technology from the basement to the ground floor. The compact Selectiva battery chargers allowed a flexible and space-saving approach to installation – in one case, they were even integrated above head height in the steelwork construction of a high-bay warehouse. Thanks to the external start/stop function, no settings are required on the device itself. Of course, Fronius made sure that all safety rules and standards were met for every variant.
» Right from the start, we were given expert, constructive and results-oriented advice. A particularly positive aspect for us was having our own designated contact person, from planning, to implementation to operation – this made the conversion far easier for us. «Daniel Stohr, Warehouse Division Manager
