BYD unveils a new charging solution
BYD is celebrating its 10th anniversary as a producer of lithium iron-phosphate battery-powered forklifts with the launch of a new dual-charging system, promising its customers industry-leading recharge speeds. It is also bringing to the market the latest generation of the BYD PTP20P stand-on pallet truck.
The BYD dual-charging system, available initially for the ECB50 counterbalance forklift, offers two charging ports, effectively doubling the charging speed when connected to a pair of charger guns each offering 200 A when plugged into a single compact, intelligent BYD charger.
In environments where high productivity relies on maximum availability of the materials handling fleet, such as high-throughput warehouses and cross-docking facilities, the BYD dual-charging system will ensure industry-leading levels of uptime.
BYD is also launching to the market its second-generation BYD PTP20P stand-on pallet truck. Initially scheduled for its world premiere at the cancelled LogiMAT 2020 trade fair, this completely re-engineered high-speed truck, with a driving speed up to 12 km/h, features superior stability, flexibility and a floating driving system for optimal traction; a 2000kg load capacity; and a fixed platform and side panel.
Like all BYD materials handling equipment, the new BYD PTP20P is powered by BYD iron-phosphate battery technology, ensuring high levels of reliability and uptime, and a highly competitive total cost of ownership (TCO).
Compared to equivalent equipment powered by traditional lead acid batteries, BYD batteries require no maintenance, have a shorter charge time, a longer working life, and use considerably less energy. BYD fast-charging technology allows the charging time to be reduced to just one hour. Furthermore, BYD batteries can be topped up during short breaks in operations with no detrimental effect to the integrity of the battery, thus guaranteeing maximum uptime at the lowest-possible cost.
