Delivery Autumn 2020
Specifically developed for demanding forklift applications, the Arco FC high-power system are the most advanced, integrated and completely automatic fuel cell generation units. Available with a nominal voltage of 24V, 48V and 80V, the Arco FC power system has everything required for an easy plug and play operation. Starting an Arco FC power system is easy as turning a key. Once place in the forklift and connected to the plug, the automatic control unit will start delivery power accordingly to the load request.
Arco FC high-power system maintain constant power at all times, keeping the vehicle running at full speed throughout the entire shift, while conventional forklift lose approximately 14% of their speed over the last half of the battery charge.
Lower Operational Costs
The Arco FC high-power system eliminates the need to change, charge and manage batteries during the operation. The Arco FC units run longer than lead-acid batteries and can be fueled in just 3 minutes, substantially reducing vehicle and personnel downtime.
The Arco FC high-power system is Safe, Clean and Efficient. It produce no harmful emissions and eliminates the costs associated with handling and storing toxic materials.
More Commercial Space
Hydrogen fueling station replace large battery charging rooms, freeing up valuable warehouse space, approximately 7%, of the entire area is covered to set up inventory and revenue generating operations.
Arco FC high-power system fit seamlessly into the space occupied by DIN batteries on all lift trucks, making them a simple and cost-effective solution for professionals to adopt.
Specifically developed for demanding of Lithium battery pack for the lead acid battery transition the Arco-LiPacks are the most advanced, integrated and reliable Li Battery packs. Available with a nominal voltage from 12V to 800V and current from 35 Amp to 2000 Amp. Arco FC battery packs has everything required for an easy plug and play operation. Starting an Arco FC battery packs is easy as turning a key. Once place in the costumer application and connected to the plug the automatic BMS control unit will start delivery power according to the load request, or drive the Battery charger for a optimal charging profile.
USTON control is a remote monitoring system constantly reports via WEB the battery status, including malfunctions on a daily basis. In order to prevent any potential damage, the system is collecting data on the operating conditions, effecting improvements on the operations. USTON control deliver to the control room, information such as parameters of each battery cells, warning if malfunctions occur, automatic fault prevention.
Arco FC Battery Pack have a life time 4 time greater than a Lead Acid battery and the charging time is 2 time faster
Lower Operational Costs
Arco FC Battery Pack perform 4000 cycles Vs 1000 cycles of a conventional Lead Acid battery with a negligible over price. The cost per cycle of Arco FC battery Packs is just € 2,74 Versus € 5,32 of a Lead acid battery
Arco FC Battery Pack fit seamlessly into the space occupied by DIN batteries on all vehicles, making them a simple and cost-effective solution for professionals to adopt
