Jungheinrich’s crossover battery charger system has been recognized with a Best of Industry Award.
Suitable for both lead acid and lithium-ion batteries, the SLH 300 was awarded the prize in the Operating Technology category.
Explaining their decision, the judging panel underlined the importance of the cross-technology interconnectivity and support for multiple technologies in charging that the high-frequency charger offers.
Produced in Jungheinrich’s Norderstedt production plant in Germany, the in-house developed system is available with support for 15-320A as well as various truck voltage classes and standards.
“The SLH 300 brings together a perfect solution for the needs of the rapidly growing lithium-ion market, and new and smart solutions for the existing lead acid market,” said Dietrich Vahldiek, head of product management & development for energy storage and charger systems at Jungheinrich. “This makes the new SLH 300 a significant milestone in the battery charger market. Using communication interfaces that offer long-term operational gains, advanced energy efficiency and a standardised and intuitive approach, we aim to demonstrate the benefits of Jungheinrich’s technology to our customers.”
The battery charger includes an automated electrolyte refill control unit that boosts the service life of the battery and saves costs for the user by detecting when the fill level is too low.
The SLH 300 is a modular system built with cascaded modules, made up of a basic housing type and includes a country-specific power supply unit, power modules, a display unit and other optional extras. All of the devices in the series are designed to be wall-mounted or installed in a standing position. Once mounted or installed, the compact and lightweight battery chargers can be used immediately. The smart operating concept ensures that the devices are easy to use, and the LED status indicator is visible even from a greater distance.
Hoyame Saber, sales director for Jungheinrich UK said, “As a leader in the warehousing and logistics industry, we aim to continually be at the forefront of new energy saving technology and bolster our extensive range of innovative products and intralogistics solutions. Jungheinrich is extremely proud to have our SLH 300 battery charger system recognized by these awards.”
