The innovation of lithium batteries employed in the agricultural field raises increasing interest, so much so that Bagioni decided to improve them further by adding the charge indicator on the battery.
Only a couple of months after the patent was applied for, various companies have shown their interest, especially when it comes to asparagus harvesting machines. The patented system concerns the management of the voltage and amperage to reduce ampere consumption and make sure the equipment benefits from all the advantages of lithium batteries. These include zero maintenance, weight three times less than lead batteries, improved efficiency, duration of 10 years, lower costs.
The batteries have a broad voltage and reduce ampere consumption. They are manufactured specifically for Bagioni Technology and must be ordered in advance. This technology is very useful for those companies that have multiple machines and that spend time and money to maintain lead batteries. Lithium batteries need no maintenance or particular checks.
"Our previous machines featuring lead batteries can also be updated with lithium batteries, while the new machines can be supplied with the new kit. We patented the regulating system because it is unique in the world," explains Aurenzo Bagioni.
"I don't think lithium batteries have ever been used in this sector to supply machines like ours. This is because it's not easy to overcome a few technical limitations, which we solve thanks to our patent. An asparagus harvester is in fact not exactly like a cell phone."
