Hyster Company’s Battery Tracker Helps Operations Take Charge of Their Battery Fleets

GREENVILLE, N.C. (March 18, 2019) – When an operation is dependent on materials handling equipment, any downtime or disruption can send a negative ripple effect throughout the operation. Industrial batteries may seem an insignificant part of a larger fleet operation, but premature failure or unaddressed issues can be costly, both in terms of productivity and expensive battery replacements.

Hyster Battery Tracker is a fleet management solution that provides valuable insights to maximize battery performance and life. Utilizing existing wireless networks, Hyster Battery Tracker monitors usage and delivers alerts for potential battery issues through a variety of features, including:

  • Water Level: Encourages proper watering procedures by reporting electrolytes at high and low levels
  • 24/7 Monitoring: Utilizes existing wireless networks to transmit data to the cloud-based Hyster Tracker
  • Smart Charging: Delivers analytical data such as state of charge, voltage current, and battery temperature to improve battery care and charging behavior
  • Warranty Compliance: Stores data for the life of the battery and provides complete history to comply with battery warranty

“Successful businesses need data-driven intelligence to guide decisions that improve efficiency and protect the bottom line, but data is only as good as the tools available to analyze it,” said Pat DeSutter, Vice President of Fleet Service and Aftermarket for Hyster Company. “With Hyster Battery Tracker’s online portal access, fleet managers can get full visibility into their batteries and use that information to have more control over productivity and profitability.”

Hyster Battery Tracker provides relevant data insights on the general health of a fleet in terms of charge level, event notifications, and calculated asset health metrics, while highlighting potential undesirable treatments of battery assets in relation to charge and discharge characteristics. In addition, Hyster Battery Tracker can help eliminate battery-related equipment downtime, performance setbacks and even operational and safety concerns.
