What is a traction battery?

According to European standard IEC 60254 – 1 lead acid traction batteries are used as power sources for electric propulsion in applications which include road vehicles, locomotives, industrial forklift trucks and mechanical handling equipment(MHE). The traction power pack can be made of 2 volt cells, or 4, 6, 8 and 12V monoblocs (Fig.1). There is no stipulation in the traction market on the internal construction of the traction batteries but the external dimensions are defined in standards such as IEC 60254 – 2. The battery capacity is measured over a defined battery discharge test from fully charged to 1.7 volts per cell over a period of 5 hours (C5 test).  Submarine batteries are also a kind of traction battery. Forklift/pallet truck batteries are all used for motive power applications.

How to choose the right forklift battery for your forklift trucks?

Should you choose lithium ion batteries or lead acid batteries for your forklift? Read more about lithium ion batteries here.

The majority of EV traction power used in the fork lift truck market are 2v traction cells, of which over 90% are the flooded tubular plate battery design. These traction batteries are generally used for pallet and forklift trucks in multiples of 6 to give 12v forklift battery, 24v traction battery, 36v forklift battery 48v forklift battery or 80v forklift battery packs, with 80 volts breaking the series progression and forming the upper limit for most forklift manufacturing companies. 

There are standard traction pack sizes for forklift manufacturers from different countries based on their national standards. The majority of forklifts in India like Nilkamal forklifts, Godrej forklifts, Josts forklifts, Toyota forklifts, Kuon forklifts etc., (Disclaimer – all brands belong to respective companies & Microtex is not part of them) will use a DIN or BS standard size of cell. This determines the external dimensions, pole arrangement and expected capacity. Lithium ion batteries are also available for forklift battery applications.

What other factors to choose a forklift battery?

Forklift trucks have battery containers which are standard sizes based on multiples of the appropriate cell dimensions. These sizes are also regulated container sizes expected for BS and DIN standards. Considerations when choosing a suitable battery go beyond simply choosing the right capacity, which of course is critical. 

Other factors which influence battery choice include:
The make and size of forklift
Length of operation
Application
Location
Maintenance resources
