US battery manufacturer and supplies company Enersys has launched a wireless charger for automated guided vehicles (AGVs).
The company said it comes with contact-free charging pads, eliminating the maintenance and wear associated with physical charging connections. The Nexsys Air wireless charger can charge traditional flooded lead-acid, thin plate pure lead and lithium-ion batteries.
Output power range is 7–10KW.
It has a small footprint and can be distributed at a range of locations. It comes with touchscreen controls and safety features.
AGVs are used in warehouses etc. for shifting goods around.
