Renowned battery specialist ecobat battery technologies (ebt) has brought the iconic lucas brand into its comprehensive portfolio with the launch of a range of premium quality motive power ‘forklift’ batteries for the materials handling and logistics industries.
After researching the on-going needs of the sector and completing rigorous field trials, EBT Industrial, the company’s industrial power division, has introduced the Lucas range to fill a gap in the market for a complete battery, on a direct, like-for-like replacement basis, to provide the market with a no hassle ‘plug and play’ option.
“In a crowded market, simplicity is the key that makes this option particularly attractive as the package is designed to make the identification process quick and straightforward, in order to allow users to correctly specify the most appropriate replacement,” explains Strategic Director, Derek Anderson. “Once selected, the new battery can be ordered for immediate delivery and swapped with the existing battery for minimum fuss and the least possible vehicle downtime.”
The motive cell design, manufactured using the latest production equipment and the best of materials, delivers optimum performance, excellent reliability and a long service life. Available in a variety of DIN dimensions and engineered to DIN/EN 60254-2 standards, the Lucas motive range also ensures full compliance and provides complete flexibility.
“Each Lucas motive battery comes complete in a plastic-coated steel container and is available in many sizes to suit all DIN configurations,” Derek continues. “They also come with insulated bolts and connectors, which increases safety and simplifies maintenance and repair.
“Due to our stockholding capacity and our 13-strong national branch network, we can deliver next day anywhere in the UK, all we need to know is the voltage requirement and the space available. However, for those that don’t want to fit the battery themselves, we have a team of service engineers, who are fully trained and qualified to undertake the work.
“The introduction of the Lucas motive range allows us to offer a premium quality solution, without some of the complications inherent with many of the existing packages. In short, an off the shelf option, underpinned by tailored support.”
