Small fleet battery room management system
Philadelphia Scientific, Montgomeryville, Pa., introduced iBOS Basic, a small fleet battery room management system that provides an audible mispick alarm to alert forklift operators when the wrong battery has been selected.
iBOS Basic and iBOS Lite can manage up to 50 chargers within a single pool of batteries of the same voltage used for the same type of forklift truck. Both systems feature a bright blue ‘pick light’ to indicate the correct battery to select. The audible alarm serves as an operator behavior modification tool, ensuring selection of the correct battery in the pool.
