Quad Stack Battery Extractors


IIoT-Powered Battery Handling Solutions for Large Forklift Fleets

Quad Stack Battery Extractors (BE-QS) from BHS offer the greatest combination of space-saving design, efficiency, and safety for fleets with more than 300 batteries. With battery change-outs averaging just a few minutes per lift truck, a BE-QS system can improve battery room efficiency significantly, freeing forklifts to complete more material handling tasks.

Data-driven features associated with the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) make the BE-QS more safe, efficient, and reliable than ever before. Managers at the regional and/or facility level can log into the BHS IIoT Portal from anywhere with internet access. There, admins can view operator sessions, track system notifications, and activate advanced safety features like a required Operator Daily Checklist every 24 hours.

Built for Safety, Reliability, and Industry 4.0 Innovations

The advanced BHS lift system incorporates four hydraulic lift cylinders with a four-point equalization system. This combination keeps the battery carriage moving smoothly and evenly, while the exclusive Non-Inter-Flow hydraulic manifold routes power to adjust to the shifting weight of a battery transfer.

Battery beds ensure load stability during travel with five hydraulic-powered rollers supported by six additional idler rollers. The careful spacing of these rollers prevents damage to battery cases and supports the 10,000 pound load capacity that allows the BE-QS to bear the industry’s heaviest batteries safely.

Condition-based and predictive maintenance through the first-in-its-class BHS IIoT system prevent downtime, while sensors ensure that all components operate within acceptable ranges. Email alerts keep managers informed, giving them full control over asset operation even from remote locations.
