The unique high power battery for maximum economic efficiency
TENSOR – Power that pays
The increasing demands of modern trucks require batteries which comprise high performance and energy efficiency. Based on many years extensive experience of producing high performance batteries (e.g. for submarines), GNB has now developed the next generation of lead-acid batteries.
The core benefits of TENSOR are the increases in performance, capacity and energy efficiency.
TENSOR batteries can increase the operating time of materials handling trucks. Concurrently, TENSOR batteries have a significantly lower operating temperature which has a positive effect on the operational life. Additionally, the excellent energy efficiency ensures decreased energy costs and avoids carbon dioxide (CO2 ) emissions. Compared to conventional traction batteries, an advantage of approximately 36% can be expected.** Moreover, TENSOR provides unique properties in environments where maximum performance is required. In cold storage applications, for example, TENSOR exceeds the transshipment performance of standard traction batteries by more than 50%. This characteristic at low temperatures makes TENSOR also ideally suited for heavy-duty trucks which are operated outdoors throughout the year. A particular strength of the TENSOR battery is its excellent charge efficiency. Thus, TENSOR batteries can be fully recharged within 4 hours and efficient opportunity charging means battery changes can be avoided.*
Advantages over conventional traction batteries:
- Increased performance due to high power density
- Increased running times due to high energy content and efficient energy recovery
- Longer operational life due to low operating temperature
- Higher energy cost savings due to excellent energy efficiency
- Suitable for fast charging and multi opportunity charging*
