What’s a great machine without a great power supply? OPTIMA®

more productivity and efficiency.

When we think of the latest technology, we automatically think about the product. What can it do? What can’t it do? How does it do it? Many of us overlook the components that actually enable the product to impress us in the first place.

What about power? When it comes to power, we like a lot of it. Battery power is portable power, which means you are free to work as you please, within reason. There is nothing worse than purchasing a fantastic cleaning machine to find it’s drained of battery within what feels like minutes. Charging battery means unnecessary downtime, which means you aren’t getting the best out of your machine, or your staff. Mains power is a suitable alternative, but it can be restrictive and various leads and other components present a trip hazard too.

Luckily, when it comes to cleaning machines,

Johnson Controls have it covered with OPTIMA®

quick-charging batteries. Perfectly

suited for all cleaning machines where batteries need to be recharged rapidly, these batteries improve the productivity of cleaning machines, whether used on a daily basis, or only intermittently.

OPTIMA® batteries enable maintenance-free,

simple operation, and offer an environmentally-friendly solution with optimal recycling capability.

Designed for frequent intermittent charging processes, OPTIMA®

batteries have a

significantly better current acceptance than normal batteries. With high output chargers, the batteries can be charged in under 60 minutes, where other batteries need up to 12 hours to recharge. Even frequently interrupted charging processes do not affect the OPTIMA®

Corrosion resistant terminals

process, reducing CO2 emissions. The OPTIMA®

battery is also 99% recyclable.

"The productivity of cleaning machines can be significantly increased by OPTIMA®

explains Thomas Ruthenberg, Marketing Manager for OPTIMA®

Batteries. "We are

focusing on the specific cleaning requirements with these batteries by enabling maintenance- free, simple operation, and offering an environmentally-friendly solution with optimal recycling capability."

OPTIMA® batteries are appreciated by many,

including world-leading manufacturer of indoor and outdoor environmental cleaning solutions, Tennant. “Machine failures were, until now, mainly due to battery or charging problems. We were able to resolve this problem with the OPTIMA®

. Our cleaning machines can now be

performance, allowing cleaning machines to be in constant use during working hours and simply be recharged during staff breaks – meaning improved cost- effectiveness and efficiency for your business.

The rapid charging capability and high number of cycles not only save real money over the long term; they also help to reduce environmental waste. Businesses are also able to use a smaller battery, reducing the amount of lead and energy being used in the battery production

used far more cost-effectively and efficiently than before,” explained Martijn Oechies, Customer Development Director EMEA & Country Leader BNL at Tennant.

So, if you have a product with potential, but lacking in a little extra life, OPTIMA®

batteries provide you the power, with optimum results.
