Ruggedized lithium ion battery for material handling

14 Nov 2017

Valence announces its safe Lithium Iron Magnesium Phosphate chemistry platform in 24 volts in its new 24XP series. The 24XP series modules are designed for forklift and AGV/AGC applications with their inherent reliability, long cycle life, and zero maintenance. Specific materials and elements were chosen to meet the demanding environment of material handling including LiFeMgPO4 chemistry for its safety profile, anti-loosening terminal threads designed for high vibration environments, internal cell frame for durability, maintenance-free for ease of use, built-in electronic monitoring for protection of investment, full service and support in US and Europe for peace of mind, and UL2580 (pending). The 24V battery is now available in both Group 24 and 27 sizes. The second battery module released in the 24XP series, the new U-Charge U24-24XP will be implemented into applications such as automated guided vehicles, forklifts, and robots. This 24V, 56Ah battery is a drop-in replacement for Group 24 lead acid batteries.  In addition to all the 24XP benefits, it fully integrates with the Valence U-Charge Battery Management System (BMS) and can be put in series or parallel to create the right voltage and capacity for the application.
