In addition to being generous booth neighbors with snacks and coffee, eThium offers a wide range of lithium-ion technology solutions specifically designed for material handling operations. Arvind Kolhar is the program manager for eThium, and he sat down with The New Warehouse to discuss lithium-ion in warehousing and the benefits in the material handling industry.
- Arvind explains how eThium is relatively new to the market. Their parent company, EControls, has been around for 25-30 years, working primarily in the area of internal combustion engines. eThium focuses on lithium-ion batteries instead of lead-acid because they are less maintenance than lead-acid batteries and work well in hot and cold conditions
- The iron phosphate chemistry used in eThium’s batteries helps them operate in warm and cold environments instead of picking one of the two options. Arvind adds how the software with their batteries allows them to track performance in real-time. These capabilities help warehouses and other material handlers achieve optimum performance from their batteries and material handling equipment.
- Arvind lists opportunity charging, little or no maintenance, and reducing downtime as three of the most significant advantages of lithium-ion when you compare them to lead acid.
