Electric forklifts are rapidly replacing traditional fuel / diesel-based ones in the industry, due to the low noise emmisions, performance, and short return of investment benefits they provide. Using a battery-based forklift will mean that the forklift fleet-owner can operate at night in residential areas due to lower noise, while benefiting from the many advantages of electric forklifts, such as faster acceleration, lower energy costs and less tedious maintenance.
LiTHIUM BALANCE has a long history of selling s-BMS for Kalmar Cargotec industrial forklifts of almost all types. These forklifts usually run on LFP-based (Lithium Iron Phosphate) batteries, as even though these have less energy density than other lithium-based batteries, they are extremely reliable on the long run in terms of performance and stability, have relatively low cost and no toxicity associated with it.
These machines run on a 48V 180Ah batteries, managed by our s-BMS, further complementing the longevity of LFP batteries and enhancing their performance.
Kalmar Cargotec has been using LiTHIUM BALANCE’s s-BMS in hundreds of their industrial forklifts, for longer battery lifetime and better performance, ever since they began production in 2016. Find out more about our s-BMS
