Out today in the The Commercial Vehicle Workshop April Edition "A thought-provoking comment by Ken Clark, Managing Director of the CV Show exhibitors Rotronics, on the practical benefits of a battery management programme."
Snap shot of what it includes:
The battery is the heartbeat of any vehicle and is similar to the human heart in that it must be looked after, maintained and checked regularly to avoid considerable problems – in a vehicle, that means roadside defects and rising avoidable costs. If any vehicle battery is ignored and left to its own devices, it is likely to have a reduced lifespan of 50%, and the impact of poor maintenance could easily account for up to 20% of annual battery related costs.
Rotronics (www.rotronicsbms.com) are specialists in battery management solutions and the UK partners of Midtronics. A battery management programme has been devised by Rotronics, working closely with a wide range of commercial vehicle customers in order to reduce unnecessary costs and get the best out of their fleet batteries. So a battery management programme ensures that:
The aim of Rotronics is to work to work with our customers to identify any issues before they hit the fleet. We do this by checking the battery electrical system (the starter and alternator) to identify which parasitic drains may be present. Utilising the CX Pro 50/2 diagnostic charger and
the EXP1000 FHD, with integral amp clamp and printer, any excessive drain that will cause a loss of power will be identified. With our battery management programme, we can identify issues and potential problems over a period of time and tackle any faults.
