ACD Elektronik makes logistics more flexible with mobile PowerBox
ACD Elektronik, exhibiting at IntraLogisteX 2020 – which takes places at the Ricoh Arena in Coventry on 31 March and 1 April, has extended its product portfolio with addition of the PowerBox PB300 Lithium-Ion.
With the PB300 Lithium-Ion, any vehicle can easily be converted to become a mobile print station. The reliable PB300 Lithium-Ion provides more flexibility in the warehouse, saves on travel time and makes IT equipment mobile.
The maintenance-free lithium-ion rechargeable battery ensures optimum performance and makes the PowerBox an ideal companion in logistics environments. The PB300 Lithium-Ion not only allows for booster charges (during breaks, for example) and very short charging cycles, it also weights very little, which enables multifunctional use.
In contrast to commonly used safety-critical solutions with an open structure that are neither certified nor approved, the PowerBox PB300 Lithium-Ion with CE approvals and FI circuit breaker places special emphasis on working safety and personal protection. The user is protected against fault currents with full safety ensured.
In warehouse logistics or quality assurance, for stocktaking processes or for incoming and outgoing goods, the PB300 Lithium-Ion works independently of the power grid, thereby reducing unnecessary walking time.
With a sturdy housing, a practical handle and a power supply that lasts for an entire shift (over eight hours), the PB300 Lithium-Ion is the perfect companion: light, ergonomic and easy to handle. The various power connections (230 V AC, 24 V DC) including battery controller guarantee mobile and flexible energy supply of forklift terminals (such as the ACD MFT1x series), monitors, laptops, ThinClients, scanners and printers and IT equipment. More terminal devices can be loaded with an additional USB power supply.
The PowerBox can also be placed on all standard vehicles such as order picking carts and mesh carts and on permanently installed workstations and worktables. The PowerBox shows its full capabilities especially in warehouse applications that do not ensure a power supply. The PB300 Lithium-Ion can optionally be connected to read the charge state. The charge time is about four hours. Low charge state is indicated by both an acoustic and visual warning.
Approximately 2,500 charge cycles are possible with lithium-iron phosphate batteries. The lithium-ion rechargeable battery is practically maintenance-free, has a longer service life compared to conventional batteries and also has a very low self-discharging rate.
