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
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.

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.
