Getting More Power From Your Aerial Lift

1,805 Published by BSLBATT Oct 07,2021


You own or rent a scissor lift to help construction workers and painters do their jobs far from the ground. No one wants to fall from a skyscraper in the middle of the workday, especially when they need stable footing. Firefighters also use these machines that are attached to their trucks so as to reach trees and second stories. These aerial working platforms have saved lives and will continue to do so.

Scissor lifts can only go in fixed directions but they are sturdier and cheaper for temporary work. They have larger platforms, which allow for more people to work at once; the carrying capacity increases efficiency for your larger jobs. For contractors that are seeking temporary usage in one fixed location, a scissor lift rental speaks of practicality and abiding by your budget.

You need backup energy on hand for your projects, at a reasonable cost. Losing power on a warehouse scissor lift can cause delays in construction while waiting for a new battery, or lead to malfunctions at the wrong time. You want to make sure to have batteries readily available, long-lasting, and on hand.

AWP Lithium Batteries

Replacement Batteries For Aerial Lifts

When working on a job site it is necessary for equipment operators to get the most battery life out of their scissor lifts. High-quality Deep Cycle lithium batteries can provide you with years of reliable cost-efficient power. Choosing the right batteries and properly maintaining them is crucial to get the most out of your lift.

Picking the Correct Battery

Aerial Work Platform Battery is mainly used in Aerial Work Platform Battery applications like Scissor Lift/Vertical Lift/Push Around Lift and so on. Battery Pack voltage 12V/24V/48V/ voltage range from 100~250Ah capacity, support I2C/SMBUS/CANBUS/RS484/RS232, communication.

When selecting a replacement battery it is important to refer to the lift manufacturer’s specifications. Most lifts use either 6V or 12V batteries, but not all batteries are able to supply sufficient power for every lift. The size of the lift, its lift capacity, and the lift’s intended application help determine its power requirements.

For Example:

JLG’s ES Series and R Series scissor lifts utilize a 24V system requiring four 6V batteries with a minimum rating of 220 amp-hours. Batteries like the BSLBATT Battery B-LFP24-200 or B-LFP12-200 are ideal for these power requirements.

While the JLG LE Series scissor lifts are a 48V system and require eight 6V batteries with a minimum rating of 370 amp-hours. Making our B-LFP48-300 the perfect fit for this series of lifts.

Features of Aerial Work Platform Battery

Automotive Standard Safety Systems: Anti-thermal structural design and microprocessor-controlled safety system protection, like Over Voltage/Under Voltage/Over Current/Over Temperature/Short Circuit.

CAN Communication with J1939: Support J1939 Communication to read battery State of Charge (SoC), Voltage, Current, temperature, and other information.

Superior BMS performance: High accuracy voltage/current measure, high accuracy Fuel gauge calculation with temperature compensation. RTC+EEPROM to track battery operation history, run time, and SOC.

Flexible Parallel Connection: Support parallel connection and allow batteries different capacity/SOC to be connected in parallel. Intelligent balance battery with different SOC when parallel connection.

Heater Function: Support heater function to warm up the battery at a low temperature for charging and discharging.

High precision cell detection: The battery can detect low current leakage from the MEWP system, and turn it off automatically to save power.

Long Cycle Life: More than 3000 cycles.

Certification: IEC62620, IEC62619, UL2580, UL2271, UN38.3, UL etc.

A truly outstanding battery is ready for action, day in and day out. At BSLBATT, we know you need to be able to count on your scissor lift batteries at all times. That’s why we recommend BSLBATT batteries.

BSLBATT Aerial Work Platform Battery, made by the reliable Chinese lithium battery manufacturer, uses ACE BMS to manage the system in design, which can manage battery pack operation and protection,and set up redundant detection circuit to avoid wrong protection,to ensure ultra-high safety and reliability when operation.

BSLBATT Scissor Lift battery

Aerial Work Platform Battery can support Parallel function to extend capacity and Series function to increase operation voltage up to 96V base on application.
