EP EU48405 Lithium Battery 48V405Ah
Fully compatible with all reach trucks
About EU48405 Battery
EU48405, EP’s 48V405AH lithium battery, can be widely applied to electric reach trucks since EP Energy offers the universal core battery and the customized counterweight per the battery dimensions and weight needed. Thanks to opportunity charging, EU48405 battery brings increased uptime and greater charging convenience. Equipped with EP’s in-house BMS system, operators can take advantages of this Li-ion option to cut down costs by constantly monitoring the status of the battery to boost forklift uptime time without risking the battery operating life.
EP EU48405 lithium battery can be adapted to most reach trucks after adding the customized counterweight. With a 48V150Aexternal charger as standard, EU48405 offers 3-hour fast charging to fit in highly intensive applications.
EP’s BMS system constantly monitors the status of the EU48405 battery such as the temperature of the battery cells and it calculates the batteries’ state of charge. It keeps the battery in a safe and stable condition.
Productivity boost with opportunity charging
Operators can take the opportunity of charging during shift breaks. This maximizes uptime. Trucks are always available when needed.
Real-time battery monitoring display and power switch
EP EU48405 lithium battery offers a battery indicator which can be equipped in the cabin. Operators can monitor the battery condition in real time and control power supply during an operation.
Long battery life with less maintenance costs
EP EU48405 lithium battery comes with a naturally long life cycle thanks to Li-ion technology. It is maintenance-free and assures workplace safety with no water filling, air ventilation, and acid spills required.
What is the life expectancy of the battery?
Generally, the Lithium ion batteries can live as long as the truck. EP warrants that the Li-ion battery technology will provide you with 2,000 complete charge and discharge cycles and still ensure over 80% of usable capacity. Replacement with Li-ion is not necessary anymore.
What happens if we keep charging the batteries? Does it affect battery life?
EP Li-ion battery comes with battery management systems(BMS). When the battery is fully charged, it will automatically power off. This will not affect the lifetime of Li-ion battery. The battery prefers quick charges. So charging during break times is the new normal way of working with batteries.
How do Li-ion batteries perform in environment of extreme temperatures?
The batteries can run in relatively extreme temperatures, from minus 20 degrees to up to 55 degrees. The more comfortable the battery feels, the longer its lifetime.
Does it affect truck performance when exchanging Lead-acid to Li-ion battery?
No, a truck performance should not be affected by energy supply. EP Energy EU48405 battery is designed as Li-ion replacement to all reach trucks, with customized counterweight offered by EP Energy. There is no additional adjustment needed when exchanging the batteries, nor the changes of conditions on driving performance after the installation.
What is BMS system and how does it work?
The BMS plays a crucial role to protect the battery against over and under voltage and over and under temperature. The BMS also balances the cells. This system secures the battery longevity and improves battery performance. Also charging is optimized and charging and discharging cycles are stored in its memory. The data can be read on the display, PC or online with the optional Telematics system.
