First Lithium ion battery for motive power


nerSys® has extended its class-leading Hawker® XFC™ range with two new models, including its first design with advanced Lithium-Ion technology for use in the Motive Power sector. Both batteries are designed for low-duty pallet truck applications where operators want to maintain the availability of the equipment without the complexity and cost of additional infrastructure. The batteries can be recharged at any time irrespective of the

state of charge without degrading their long-term performance or reliability. Both technologies have an on-board charger and are ideal for applications with duty cycles lasting up to 45 minutes where periods of inactivity can be used for rapid opportunity charging. This means they are suitable for intermittent or sporadic handling requirements such as offloading delivery vehicles or replenishing displays in busy retail environments. The Hawker XFC-Li is the first motive power battery from EnerSys to utilise advanced lithium-ion technology. It is a 24V battery with 38Ah capacity that incorporates cells with a lithium iron phosphate (LiFePO4) cathode and graphite anode with an inherently safe lithium-ion electrolyte.

ick has launched the new SICK GR18S photoelectric sensor to provide a universal solution to cost-effective presence and positioning detection performance from the most constrained access locations. With the shortest cylindrical housings currently available, the rugged and versatile GR18S family of products are designed for easy mounting. The GR18S is therefore ideal for logistics automation in a variety of industries, for example for storage, conveyor, doors and gate applications in materials handling, logistics and packaging. Right-angle and straight cylindrical one-piece metal and plastic housings ensure the GR18S sensor has the versatility for retro-fitting as original equipment replacement and, with its IP67 rating, it will withstand tough conditions. “The GR18S uses Sick’s advanced and powerful PinPoint LED technology to deliver robust performance even in the tightest of spaces,” explains Phil Dyas, Industrial Sensors Specialist at Sick UK. “The PinPoint development eliminates the inherent limitations of conventional LEDs to produce accurate spots for proximity, retro-reflective or through-beam sensing in a very competitively priced unit. “The GR18S is available with five different M18-size housing styles offering very versatile mounting options. The bright signal indicator LED and the high security fastening save maintenance and commissioning time by showing the unit is functioning and preventing accidental loosening.“
