"As the patent filed in some countries was accepted, the time has come to talk about high-voltage lithium batteries. Lithium batteries are now commonly used all over the world thanks to their performance, durability, size and weight. It was easy to adapt the electrical system of our machines (equipped with 24 Volt DC electric motors) to these batteries," explains Aurenzo Bagioni.
"However, it was more difficult to improve performance by increasing runtime while reducing overheating. We also tried to find a way to prevent them being stolen, which sometimes used to happen."
"We produced 30 Volt lithium batteries which, combined with specific electronics, enabled the motors to run at 24 Volt preventing the voltage from dropping below this threshold increasing motor Amp absorption."
For example: Watt= Volt x Amp, where Watt is the power, Volt is battery voltage and Amp is the current absorbed by the motor.
By absorbing fewer Amps, the battery lasts longer and electrical components do not heat as much, thus improving performance.
"As for the problem of batteries being stolen from the fields, these 30 Volt batteries cannot be used on any other type of machinery. For additional information, please refer to the News page at www.asparagus.it," concludes Bagioni.
