With the introduction of AGVs and robots into the transportation industry, operation efficiency has been constantly improving, with batteries needing increasingly frequent replacing for charging.
Take, for example, a common type of AGV carrying two lead-acid batteries (each weighing 19 kg). Manually removing the spent batteries for charging and replacing them with fully charged ones can be a physical strain on the operating personnel.
As the production line cannot operate while the batteries are being replaced, it can lead to a drop in productivity. This is especially marked in winter, when the low temperature brings down the charge and discharge efficiency, requiring the batteries to be charged about 1.5 times more frequently.
SCiB™ Industrial Pack, on the other hand, is much lighter and can cut the battery weight by 50% to 75%, making for reduced physical strain on the operators. The reduced weight will also improve the charge and discharge efficiency and, thanks to the high-rate charging capability of SCiB™ Industrial Pack, allow the batteries to be charged during a brief stop at the charging system, eliminating the need for the manual battery replacement.
