You know very well how important battery efficiency is to the operation of your forklift truck – even more so, if you’re managing a whole fleet.

Accurate information about the usage, performance and life-cycle of your battery will help you manage productivity better, so you get the most from your trucks and operators.

The Curtis Acuity Battery Monitoring System

mounts alongside an industrial lead acid battery.  It measures, records and transmits battery performance data throughout the battery’s life. Installation is simple and non-invasive, so cost is minimised as there’s no need for special hardware or engineers; no cutting of cables, or drilling into the battery and the risks this can incur. An integral real-time clock allows date and time stamping of all significant events related to the battery or any vehicle component via CAN bus.

Acuity_Photo_LR.jpg

To fully utilise the information generated by Acuity, Curtis has developed AcuSet, a PC based software tool that translates the Acuity battery data into easy to read performance information to help fleet managers monitor operating efficiency according to warranty terms.
