EnerSys® to Unveil Expanded NexSys® Battery Line at MODEX® 2018


A range of opportunity charging and virtually maintenance-free motive power solutions will also be featured in the EnerSys® booth no. B3547

READING, Pennsylvania, April 5, 2018 – EnerSys® (NYSE:ENS), the global leader in stored energy solutions for industrial applications, will showcase the expanded NexSys® battery line at MODEX® 2018. Able to handle the power demands of high capacity lift truck vehicles, the expanded NexSys® battery line will be among several EnerSys motive power products and solutions featured in booth no. B3547. The MODEX® 2018 show will take place April 9-12 at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, Georgia.
Featuring proprietary Thin Plate Pure Lead (TPPL) technology, the expanded NexSys battery line includes configurations that can fast charge in just under an hour, and be opportunity charged to work for up to 16 hours. This flexibility opens up several new charging options for a wide range of material handling applications.
“We're excited to bring higher capacity TPPL battery options to the Americas,” said Chad Uplinger, Vice President Sales and Service, Motive Power Americas at EnerSys. “With the expanded NexSys battery line, operators of Class I, II and III vehicle fleets now have a virtually maintenance-free power solution and the means to lower their total cost of operation.” 
Classified as non-spillable electric storage batteries, NexSys® batteries do not require watering, reducing associated labor demands and overwatering risks. Ideal for use in multi-shift operations, NexSys® batteries can eliminate the need for battery change-outs and battery changing room requirements. The system is available with energy throughputs of up to 160% of a battery’s six-hour rating in a twenty-four-hour period. An advanced TPPL charge profile helps ensure a 40% charge rate with no equalization required.
Typical applications include:
  • Counterbalance trucks
  • Reach trucks
  • Pallet trucks
  • Order pickers
  • Automated Guided Vehicles (AGVs)
  • Laser Guided Vehicles (LGVs)
Additional EnerSys motive power solutions will also be featured in booth no. B3547, including:
  • The NexSys® iON battery – an advanced lithium-ion solution - Scheduled for launch in late 2018, NexSys® iON batteries feature an advanced Nickel Manganese Cobalt (NMC) chemistry. The new lithium-ion battery solution offers 100% charge rates, two to three times the lifecycle of lead acid batteries and is designed using ISO 26262 ASIL C to be CE and UL compliant.
  • Express® EnCore™ modular fast chargers - Engineered with the latest digital power control technology and charging intelligence, Express® EnCore™ modular fast chargers allow batteries designed for fast charging to be effectively charged anytime during the shift-day. The chargers also offer intelligent charging with high efficiency and flexibility and are packaged in one of the industry’s most compact sizes. Their modular construction adapts to a wide range of battery capacities, allowing potential reduction of the number of chargers in a fleet.
  • NexSys® battery chargers - Designed for use with NexSys® batteries, NexSys® battery chargers slash recharge times and allow for flexible opportunity charging while optimizing battery life cycle. NexSys+ battery charger models offer multiple communication platforms, intelligent charging with advanced efficiency and the flexibility to maintain peak efficiency at all times.
