Large industrial charging stations have special technological demands. We have taken on this challenge and, in collaboration with our customer, developed a concept which satisfies the individual requirements.

The task was to evenly distribute the charge levels of the batteries. To this end, a controller was implemented according to the "First In First Out" principle, where the forklift truck battery that first reaches the full-charge level is displayed to the forklift truck driver as the battery to be used next. This uses programmable logic controllers that match the chargers and lights that indicate the battery condition.

Furthermore, the customer wanted the highest possible ergonomic standards, which we took into account in the design of the battery racks and the battery replacement concept. We used rolling stands that were specifically designed and built for this task here.
