Lithium SAFEFlex batteries for Ground Support Equipment are a drop-in solution for nearly all electric vehicles. Regardless of the vehicle type – towbarless tug, conventional aircraft tractor, belt loaders, or baggage tractors – lithium batteries will provide consistent power with minimal energy waste. Lithium SAFEFlex lowers C02 emissions in comparison to fuel-powered equipment. With environmental regulations on equipment C02 emissions tightening for the airline industry over recent years, many ground support companies are evaluating Lithium SAFEFlex to reduce their carbon footprint. Additionally, lithium battery-powered equipment improves air quality for ground support staff – especially in tight spaces such as bag rooms.
Lithium SAFEFlex is the integration of Lithium Iron Phosphate cells, electronics, packaging and a software platform that was designed specifically for the harsh environmental conditions experienced on airfields. The advanced mechanical packaging protects the battery from the heaviest rainstorms and coldest northern nights. The rugged automotive-grade Battery Management System (BMS) makes Lithium SAFEFlex the most reliable lithium battery for the aviation industry. Additionally, our CANBus interface provides precise and accurate information about the battery state so the vehicle delivers optimal performance based on the battery’s state-of-charge.
Lithium SAFEFlex batteries for Ground Support Equipment are a drop-in solution for nearly all electric vehicles. Whether it’s a towbarless tug or a conventional aircraft tractor, belt loader or baggage tractor; lithium batteries will provide consistent power with minimal waste.
Green Cubes patent-pending multi-voltage battery option completes a full charge in less than one hour to maximize your operating efficiency. With a patent-pending power switching fabric, a 36V battery can be charged with 72 Volt charger, but still discharge at 48 Volts when powering the truck. This reduces the charge time by 50%. As an example, a 48V 600Ah, 24-85-21 equivalent battery can be fully charged in much less than an hour. The multi-voltage battery option is available in 24 Volt (24/48), 36 Volt (36/72) and 48 Volt (48/96) battery configurations. In addition to our standard customizable features found in the Lithium SAFEFlex line, the multi-voltage battery utilizes the existing single connector 4/0 cabling which delivers cost efficiencies and minimizes the chance of cable damage over traditional packs. This battery can meet the demands of heavy, three shift operators who need to maximize every available minute. The multi-voltage battery is designed to withstand the most demanding applications and increase your team’s overall productivity.
In addition to the existing Lithium SAFEFlex batteries, Green Cubes offers custom OEM batteries to manufacturers of Ground Support Equipment. Green Cubes can design and manufacture custom batteries to meet OEM’s exacting requirements. Features supported with our custom batteries for Ground Support Equipment OEM’s include batteries with an Ingress Protection (IP) rating of IP 65, support for temperature ranges from -20 to +50 Celsius, integrated heating elements to ensure battery performance when temperatures drop below -20 Celsius and power levels up to 100 kWH.
Green Cubes is a great company, great engineers, great product. That’s been kind of my number one go to [lithium] battery.
The thing I like about Green Cubes is that they have other lines of business outside of material handling batteries, they have been in the lithium world for a long time. I can trust they will likely stay in business
Green Cubes [differentiates] on its capability to custom design for things like the hardware, the firmware, and inverters. They also have economies of scale because they make battery systems for things like forklifts.
I am doing some work with them right now. We’re learning their products, and looking at demos. They have good people. They seem like they know the technology well – they say they’re a technology company. I like that they’ve been in the lithium business a long time. I can trust they will likely stay in business.
Green Cubes Technology would be my go-to for lithium applications.
I’ve told my friends at Green Cubes, I don’t plan on going anywhere. I believe in loyalty.
