Ramp Equipment News: Lead-Acid vs Lithium-ion batteries

Jerry Crump, Director of Business Development, GSE for Green Cubes, compares the merits of using Lithium-ion batteries to Lead-Acid batteries in electric GSE.With the emergence of more and more electric Ground Support Equipment (eGSE), there is potential for great savings in Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) versus Internal Combustion engines (ICE) and Lithium-ion (Li-ion) batteries are rapidly replacing Flooded Lead Acid (FLA) as the preferred technology for similar reasons. In comparing Lead-Acid batteries versus Li-ion it is important to understand the hidden infrastructure costs for Lead.For FLA, maintenance costs need to be accounted for along with battery watering and equalisation …

Modern Material Handling: Lift Truck Tips, Transitioning to lithium for cold storage

All those frozen foods, subscription meal kits, and refrigerated foods and beverages that U.S. consumers increasingly buy, along with pharmaceuticals that need to be kept cold, equate to a need for more cold storage warehousing. Analyst firm Grandview Research pegs the cold storage warehousing sector to expand at a compound annual growth rate of 13.5% from 2021 through 2028.Some cold storage DCs may opt for automated storage and retrieval systems or other automation to minimize the need for lift trucks. But for many cold storage DCs, electric lift trucks are relied upon to handle goods.Cold storage is a challenging environment because of the …

Airport Industry Review: Li-Ion batteries offer safe, efficient, green power for eGSEs

Jerry Crump, director of GSE business development at Green Cubes Technology, highlights the benefits of lithium-ion batteries for ground support equipment in airports.Though electric ground support equipment (eGSE) is not a new technology on our airport ramps, it is constantly evolving and is not without challenges – particularly when it comes to implementing the energy needed for eGSE to effectively support airport operations.Airlines, ground handling companies, and fixed-base operators can utilise new lithium-ion technologies, such as lithium iron phosphate, maximising the available power from their charging infrastructure to keep up with airline and airfield operations and the high power demand …

Power Electronics News: 48 Volt Lithium-Ion Battery Backup Units

Green Cubes Technology has announced its Guardian family of Lithium-ion Battery Backup Units. The Guardian family of batteries are targeted at rack mount installations in the Telecom and Data Center industries.Telecom and Data Center industries are required to operate 24 hours a day, seven days a week, to support mission critical functions. These applications require battery backup solutions that are reliable, safe and cost effective. Traditionally, when an AC grid fails, these applications rely on a centralized Uninterruptible Power Sources (UPS) that utilizes large, heavy lead-acid batteries as the power source. The Guardian family of Lithium-ion batteries from Green Cubes will support …
