Philadelphia Scientific announces the "iBOS Lite" Battery Operating System.
Philadelphia Scientific, The Lean Battery Room ExpertTM, a leading international manufacturer of industrial battery components and accessories, has introduced iBOS® Lite. iBOS Lite is the latest addition to the company's industry-leading line of intelligent battery room management systems.
Operators of large fleets of fork-lift trucks are already familiar with the efficiency and cost advantages the iBOS system brings to their battery room.
iBOS Lite now opens up many of these benefits to managers of fleets of 5-50 chargers. For industrial forklift operators, the new iBOS Lite takes the guesswork out of choosing the right battery. A bright blue LED indicates to the operator which battery is fully charged and is the most cooled down, and therefore best to select. iBOS Lite is easier to use than other battery room management systems and is a cost-competitive solution, paying for itself in a few months.
iBOS Lite offers simplified and directed battery selection that saves money in three ways:
1. Faster battery changes: warehouse personnel can save two to five minutes per change.
2. Less frequent battery changes: the number of battery changes can be reduced by 10 to 20%, increasing productivity.
3. Longer battery life: iBOS Lite can increase battery life by six months due to longer battery cool down times and more even battery usage, and longer battery life results in fewer battery purchases each year.
iBOS Lite manages up to 50 chargers for each battery type, using simplified controller and monitoring technology. It is compatible with all makes and types of chargers.
iBOS Lite is one member of the family of solutions in the Lean Battery RoomTM. Philadelphia Scientific will be showcasing the Lean Battery Room at CeMAT 2014, Hannover from May 19th-23rd.
