When an operation is dependent on materials handling equipment, any downtime or disruption can have a negative ripple effect throughout the operation. Industrial batteries may seem an insignificant part of a larger fleet operation, but premature failure or unaddressed issues can be costly, both in terms of productivity and expensive battery replacements.
Hyster Battery Tracker with Powered by PosiCharge technology is a new battery management solution that monitors battery health and usage to help ensure proper maintenance and warranty compliance tracking.
Installed in as little as 20 minutes, this low-profile device stays with the battery during its lifetime and uses cellular communications to deliver actionable, real-time data on key performance metrics like state-of-charge (SOC), water levels, voltage, current, and temperature. Email notifications quickly alert fleet managers to potential battery issues that may affect equipment performance and uptime.
Data is only as good as the tools available to analyze it. Hyster Battery Tracker comes with a robust, back-office reporting suite that transforms continuous 24/7 monitoring into easy-to-use reports and dashboards. Detailed daily tracking, weekly exceptions, and lifetime statistical analysis reports provide instant visibility to battery health across an entire fleet, helping fleet managers identify potential issues before they become larger problems and simplifying warranty compliance.
Successful businesses need data-driven intelligence to guide decisions that improve efficiency and protect the bottom line. For lift truck fleets, Hyster Battery Tracker can produce relevant data insights for quick conversion into actionable business intelligence, allowing fleet managers to make timely, informed decisions. This helps eliminate potential battery-related downtime and improve internal battery maintenance procedures that can maximize battery life and reduce costs.
