Sosaley Technologies is offering a special version of it’s BMS to work with electric forklifts. Modified to handle upto 120V, the fLiftBMS monitors your forklift battery 24/7 and is designed to extend the life of the battery and save you from breakdowns and losing business. Many forklifts are used round the clock with a simple battery swap. In this scenario, fLiftBMS becomes indispensable to know when to swap the battery and which battery is ready for installation.
The fLiftBMS sends data to the cloud through inbuilt GPRS.
The fLiftBMS handles a battery bank consisting of multiple cells as a single battery. This has been done to keep the costs low. Individual cell monitoring can be done, if needed.
The fLiftBMS can be installed both on the forklift as well as battery charging stations. In a battery charging station, the fLiftBMS will help the operator identify the battery set that is fully charged and ready to be installed on the forklift.
The installation of the fLiftBMS has been designed in a way that it is linked to a battery set. It moves with the battery, whether on the forklift or on a charging station. An optional GPS module on the fLiftBMS gives it location identification capabilities.
At The Charging Station
In general, all forklifts are designed to be multi-shift operational that needs a quick and easy battery change. To make this easy, on the charging station, the charged battery can be identified either through an online monitor, or through simple lighting system that shows charged batteries as green and others as red. Some amount of hardware and software modifications are needed to link the charging rack to the BMS system.
The operator does not have to worry about the BMS. It moves with the battery when he disconnects the battery terminals from the forklift.
On The Forklift
On the forklift, the batteries are usually kept under the driver’s seat. The Sosaley fLitBMS’s small size is an ideal fit in the cramped space. The complete electronics comes packaged in a box that is less than 2 inches tall. The FLiftBMS can also be housed in IP65 or better cabinets to protect from acid and other spillages.
