Protecting the Power Source

The iBattery™ asset management system helps electric lift truck fleet owners optimize battery life and performance, increase productivity and drive down operating costs.

By · April 10, 2012

Lead-acid batteries for an electric lift truck can cost almost as much as the purchase price of the actual lift truck — yet those batteries are seldom optimized and are often misused in high-volume warehouse operations. Now, the iBattery™ asset management system from The Raymond Corporation gives fleet owners unprecedented power to monitor real-time battery condition and make decisions that optimize battery life and performance.

The iBattery system is the latest enhancement of Raymond’s iWarehouse® fleet optimization system. Fleet owners with iWarehouse installed in their facilities can easily add the iBattery feature, which gives both lift truck operators and management personnel easy access to essential information on every battery on every truck. The system automatically monitors key battery parameters and provides information that helps users.
