EnerSys, a global leader in stored energy solutions for industrial applications, has launched the NexSys AIR wireless charger. Engineered for a wide range of Automated Guided Vehicles (AGVs), the new NexSys AIR wireless charger boasts an advanced, space-saving design to automate charging and eliminate maintenance, giving facilities and AGV Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) a safe and convenient solution that eliminates physical connections.

The NexSys AIR wireless charger features contact-free charging pads, eliminating the maintenance and wear associated with physical charging connections. Capable of charging traditional flooded lead acid, Thin Plate Pure Lead (TPPL) and lithium-ion batteries, the charger can handle a range of AGVs, charging schedules and facility locations, ensuring more flexibility and reliability for automated operations.

“With no physical connectors to wear out and no manual labor, the NexSys AIR wireless charger delivers dependable, maintenance-free AGV charging – helping customers fulfill the promise of true automation” said Harold Vanasse, senior director of Marketing, Motive Power Global at EnerSys. “As the latest solution in our line of maintenance-free motive power products, the NexSys AIR wireless charger maximizes AGV uptime with opportunity charging, helping facilities to really drive productivity.” 

With their small footprint, NexSys AIR wireless chargers can be distributed across a variety of locations throughout facilities – providing additional layout design flexibility. Each unit also features intuitive touchscreen controls and advanced safety features that include Foreign Object Detection (FOD) and Live Object Detection (LOD) to help protect workers and equipment.
