Eliminate Battery Tray Failure with the SmartBlinky Tray Monitor
Thursday, 16 Feb 2017 ( #808 )
Often battery operators don’t realise there’s electrolyte in the bottom of a battery tray until a hole appears in the side, or worse, there’s acid leaking onto the floor.  It’s very easy to overfill a battery or water before charge, over the lifetime of the battery it’s almost inevitable and difficult to identify until the damage is done.

Battery Tray Damage
Electrolyte spills

As you can see, electrolyte spills should not be left as one of those ‘out of sight out of mind’ problems. Issues caused by electrolyte spills are a hassle to fix and very expensive. Spills can render the affected battery, and maybe even the truck, unusable, a service call is likely and then there’s the clean-up. Cordoning off a large area of a warehouse while battery acid is removed and the surface is repainted is disruptive and likely to have a negative impact on productivity and output.

SmartBlinky Tray Monitor

Electrolyte overflow is a problem faced many businesses in our industry and, from what we can tell, is often an issue handled reactively rather than proactively. That is until one of our customers came to us and mentioned their challenges. Philadelphia Scientific are industry experts in battery technology; we develop innovative strategies to help our customers drive efficiencies and are creative pioneers thanks to our continued investment in R&D.  We have the experience to tackle pressing issues and provide cost-effective solutions where others have failed. This is how the SmartBlinky Tray Monitor was born. With the SmartBlinky Tray Monitor, detecting spillage in the battery tray has never been easier. The Monitor senses electrolyte spills and alerts you before any damage to the battery tray occurs.

Monitoring is easy:
With its bright red and blue LEDs, the SmartBlinky Tray Monitor is simple to use. A white heart beat LED means the Monitor is on, a red and blue flash means there is electrolyte in the tray. You can tell quickly and clearly whether you need to take any action.

Quick connection:
Connect two wires to power between 6.0v and 12.0v and place the probe between the cells. Done. It really is that easy to fit and a reverse connection will not damage the SmartBlinky Tray Monitor.

Peace of mind:
For a small investment, battery owners can minimise repairs, replacements, injuries, downtime and clean-up costs.

There's the problem
The icing on the proverbial cake is that the SmartBlinky Tray Monitor takes just 10 minutes to fit at a fraction of the cost of replacing a failed tray. And no that wasn’t a typo, we timed and tested it! Just like we test all our products before they hit the marketplace. Our rigorous product testing, CE and ISO:9001 certification all stand testament to the quality of our brand. If you run the maths the SmartBlinky Tray Monitor really is a no brainer. For a small investment you will save a lot of time and money. In addition, you’ll receive a quality product backed up with market leading support from a brand that delivers each and every time.

Philadelphia Scientific is synonymous with innovation: we work with our customers to develop products that make a real difference to the way they do business.
