Traction gained as GS Yuasa's new motive battery range hits the market
GS Yuasa's new specialist traction range of batteries is now available in Europe.
Designed for use in applications ranging from floor cleaning machines to forklift trucks and materials handling equipment, the 24, 48 and 80-Volt solutions utilise GS Yuasa's specialist 2 Volt traction cells to offer high performance and minimal maintenance.
GS Yuasa batteries are trusted by engineers worldwide for use in a wide variety of applications. Their superior quality supplies power for millions of systems which enable everyday life such as telecommunications, banking and grid power support.
The new range is a fully plug and play solution, meaning it can be easily integrated into a wide range of applications. All batteries are supplied in a high durability, dip coated tray, manufactured to DIN/EN 60254-2 standards, with both DIN and BIS sizes available. Individual cells and a broad range of accessories are also available.
An optional Air-Mix system enhances electrolyte mixing, prolonging service life and reducing the risk of stratification and premature battery failure. The system brings a number of additional benefits including a 20% reduction in energy consumption during charging and reducing overall charge times by 30%. A fully integrated filling solution makes maintenance quick and easy while an optional LED indicator means electrolyte levels can be checked with just a glance.
Mike Broom, director at traction battery specialist and distributor of GS Yuasa Traction batteries - Battery Technologies UK, (which has just received its first consignment of the new offering) says: "Our experience with Yuasa batteries has always been overwhelmingly positive - when we first heard about the new GS Yuasa Traction range, we knew it was something we could confidently put our name to and supply to our customers."
Jonathan Wrigley, OEM & OES sales manager for GS Yuasa Battery Sales UK adds: "We're delighted to bring our reputation for high-quality products to such an exciting market. The GS Yuasa Traction batteries are a welcome addition to our range, offering long service life and minimal maintenance.
“Businesses overwhelmingly demand reliability so we're proud to be able to bring our unparalleled reputation for quality and reliability to the materials handling market."
