2 volt traction cells
2 volt traction cells are mainly used in heavy industrial electrical applications, such as: electric forklifts, electric trucks and large industrial cleaning machines,
The cells are composed of positive tubular plates and negative grid plates, which guarantee a higher capacity and longer life than the conventional batteries with flat plates.
The positive and negative plates are separated by a micro-porous separator in order to avoid mutual contact and short circuits.
The plates are packed in a polypropylene container that is resistant to vibrations. At the bottom of this container, there is a rest room to collect the precipitate and thus to prevent short circuits.
On top of the cells, there is a lid to prevent the coming-up of the separators by vibrations and shocks and causing a short circuit. The lid also protects against acid and protects the plates and the separators during filling.
The cells are standard equipped with manual filler caps and a little basket which simplifies the refilling (refill up to the bottom of the basket).
A couple of tips for a longer battery life
only refilling with demineralised water
refilling after charge
refilling up to the bottom side of the baskets: not higher!
keep the upper side of the battery dry and clean
use an adequate charger for battery & capacity
avoid intermediate charges
Electric forklift trucks utilise traction batteries as their source of power.
Traction batteries are made up of several individual cells, all linked together to form a battery.
Each individual cell produces 2 volts and normally, trucks operate at 24v, 36v, 48v, 72v and 80v.
Therefore you will have 12, 24, 36 or 40 individual cells in the battery container.
