Lithium-ion technology

The CLARK lithium-ion batteries (Li-Ion) with high availability and low operating costs are efficient energy bundles that give excellent results: The batteries can be opportunity charged at any time and within a very short period whenever breaks occur and without damaging the battery or shortening its service life. CLARK Li-Ion materials handling vehicles can therefore be used around the clock. A battery change is not necessary. Thus, Li-Ion technology guarantees high  efficiency, especially in multi-shift operation.

Lithium-ion batteries from CLARK increase your handling performance and reduce operating costs at the same time

 

CLARK Li-Ion batteries store a lot of energy in a small space. They have an extremely long service life and are optimal for intensive use. With Li-Ion batteries, you not only increase productivity, but also reduce your costs. This means that the purchase costs of Li-Ion batteries pay for themselves within two to three years, depending on their use. Moreover, since you do not need a dedicated charging infrastructure, you gain valuable storage space.

Highlights

Low maintenance costs

Low maintenance costs

The lithium-ion battery, unlike the lead-acid battery, is maintenance-free. No refilling of water, no cleaning or checking of the acid level is necessary. Whereas with lead-acid batteries there is always the risk of injury from leaking battery acid and gases or crushing due to improper procedures when changing the battery, this danger does not exist when using Li-ion batteries.

Opportunity charges

The Li-Ion battery can be charged temporarily without any problems, for example during breaks, without any loss of capacity or damage to the battery. After a short time, 50 % of the charge level is available again. Lead-acid batteries lose part of their capacity when not in use, during opportunity charging or when charging is interrupted. The complete charging process is finished after approx. 2 hours for  counterbalance trucks with a Li-ion battery. This takes considerably longer for vehicles with a lead-acid battery.

With Li-Ion technology, the energy yield is very high. 90 to 95 % of the energy drawn from the charger is actually absorbed by the battery. This high efficiency is not the only advantage: Li-ion batteries also have no “fatigue”.

While lead-acid batteries deliver less power from approx. 40 % discharge, so that the materials handling vehicle slow down, the full power is available at all times with the Li-Ion battery. For you, this means a clear gain in efficiency and thus higher productivity in your logistical processes.

Decentralised charging points

In contrast to the lead-acid battery, the Li-Ion battery makes very few demands on the infrastructure: The battery can be charged decentrally. The operator does not need complex charging stations, as no gassing occurs during charging. He thus gains valuable storage space.

 

Double life span

Double life span

With up to 2500 charging cycles, the service life of the Li-Ion battery in counterbalance trucks is at least twice as long, and depending on the application even many times longer, than that of a lead-acid battery.

The environment also benefits from this: after the guaranteed service life, the end of life of the Li-Ion battery is far from being reached. Around 75 % of the original storage volume is still available, so that the battery can be used for up to 10 years or longer, depending on the application.

No battery change necessary

Thanks to the opportunity charging capability and easy recharging of the battery at the charging station, there is no need to change the battery even in multi-shift use.

This not only enables flexible use of the materials handling vehicle around the clock, but also means a significant physical relief for the operator and the elimination of further infrastructure that would be necessary for battery replacement.
