GS Automotive launches new traction battery range and a refreshed Yu-Fit Battery Configuration Tool
GS Automotive Battery, distributed by Serfac Limited, has just launched a new range of traction batteries for the European material handling market. The range expands on its class leading Japanese traction battery range with an all-new line up of European DIN and BS sizes.
The cutting edge offering of individual 2V cells, full tank solutions and accessories uses the very latest technology and premium Japanese engineering for maximum quality and long life. Available in 24, 48 and 80 Volt solutions, it provides coverage for all makes and models, providing reliable power and hassle-free performance.
The new European sized range is available as a fully plug and play solution, meaning that it can be easily integrated into a wide range of applications. All batteries offer low maintenance, minimised water consumption and quick charging. They are supplied in a highly durable drip-coated tray and are fully recyclable.
The GS Yuasa Yu-Fit battery configuration tool has also just received a fresh new look to bring it into line with the brand’s latest generation of workshop products and accessories. An increasing number of vehicles re now fitted with a Battery Management System (BMS) which monitors a vehicle’s battery throughout its life to maintain optimum charge efficiency and operation of the Stop-Start system.
If fitted, it’s essential to reprogramme the BMS via the OBD port following the installation of a replacement battery as failing to do so can lead to problem such as in-car error messages or even complete loss of Start-Stop functionality.
“Battery replacement is no long a five minute task and battery reconfiguration is fast becoming the norm, said Liam O’Donohoe of Serfac Limited. “The GS Yuasa Yu-Fit tool has been specifically designed to be one of the most user-friendly tools available which can achieve battery validation in less than 60 seconds!
“Although garages may already own diagnostic equipment, having a GS Yuasa Yu-Fit means that central diagnostic equipment doesn’t have to be tied up on the relatively straightforward task of battery configuration.”
The GS automotive battery range is supported by a powerful trade battery lookup site – batterylookup.gs-battery.com. Based on GS Yuasa’s industry leading online battery lookup, the system is the fastest, most-accurate battery finder available and provides users with the correct battery and detailed fitting information.
