One of the most recent advances in commercial vehicle battery technology has been HVR® (High Vibration Resistance), developed by Exide Technologies. This feature offers unprecedented levels of reliability by substantially absorbing vibration that is the main cause of damage to the internal structure of the battery.
As an important OE partner to major truck manufacturers, Exide developed the HVR® battery to solve a problem created by the introduction of new exhaust after-treatment equipment, required to meet EU regulations for reducing emissions of nitrogen oxides and particulate matter.
The addition of the sizable new SCR catalyst and AdBlue® tank has, in some cases, displaced batteries from the central chassis to a much more vulnerable rear chassis location, where increased vibrations would reduce the lifespan of the product. Exide HVR® batteries limit the effects of vibrations, and provide the performance and life expectancy the vehicle operator demands and expects.
There are many different situations whereExide HVR® offers greater durability and the longest possible battery life. This technology is particularly valuable when used in construction, agriculture/forestry, or in regions with poor road conditions and harsh environments.
Exide s commercial batteries also feature a sealed lid design that offers a number of benefits including safer spark- and spill- proof handling.
A modern commercial vehicle is a large investment. Companies making such a major purchase need to ensure that their vehicles are kept on the road as much as possible. Unforeseen breakdowns and servicing delays can have expensive consequences for the vehicle owner, so it is essential to only fit the best original part replacement.
Exide s commercial vehicle batteries are amongst the most powerful on the market and HVR® technology helps the batteries go the distance.
The prime objectives when selecting CV batteries are keeping revenue-making vehicles on the road and reduce TCO Total Cost of Ownership.
