Why Other Batteries Bow Down to Crown

You don’t have to be a battery expert to know what you want in a product. Durability, safety, and reliability are just a few of these components, all of which – and more – can be found in Crown batteries. The company’s lead acid batteries can be custom-designed, yet are only available in one category: the best.

Crown batteries are some of the heaviest and most renowned on the market. Consider these features:

  • flip-top vent caps that minimize water loss
  • optimal charge and cycling abilities
  • equipped with sleeve separators
  • LED monitor warns when water is required
  • Full 5 year warranty, not pro-rated
  • made with high-quality lead oxide from Crown’s own mill
  • protected negative edge to prevent shorts
  • insulated with POSIWRAP PROTECTION
  • requires no special chargers

It may not come as a surprise to learn that Crown Battery utilizes an optimum quality assurance system. The company is ISO-9001:2008 certified, which allows its engineers to design and manufacture such superior products. Analysis is regularly conducted to evaluate plant efficiency, product end results, and customer satisfaction. These assessments inform Crown’s decision-makers about the facets of the company that are running successfully, as well as those with room to grow. This leaves opportunity only for improvement.

Crown’s batteries promise high performance and superior return on investment, and the company is true to its word. It is evident that Crown cares deeply about its products, but its dedication to excellence doesn’t end there. The company takes great pride in its ethics and commitment to maintaining a safe working environment. President and CEO Hal Hawk attributes these qualities to frequent safety training and open communication within and between teams on all levels.

The plant’s modern, high-tech machinery is a meaningful component of a safe workplace as well, since it handles the most dangerous jobs. Manufacturing lines complete welding and heating work, and even circulate acid.

Awards and Acknowledgements

In 2012, the Sandusky County Safety Council and the Ohio Bureau of Worker’s Compensation declared Crown Batteries exemplary in terms of workplace safety. This is quite a feat, considering the company employs more than 400 people.

Not only was Crown recognized, but the company was awarded in all four categories. They include the Group Award, for the fewest incidents in its group; the 100% Award, for going years without workplace injury requiring employees to miss 1 or more days of work; the Special Award, for managing at least 500,000 hours and 6 months free of employee injuries resulting in 1 or more days of missed work; and the Achievement Award, for lowering accident numbers by 25% of the previous year’s rates.

The privately-owned company identifies its primary values as strength and integrity – qualities it has modeled for more than 80 years. These are the exact values that drive its top priorities, which are commitment to customers, the community it serves, and to its partners worldwide.

Industrial Battery Monitoring: Making it Easier to Monitor Your Battery Power

Industrial Powersource has manufactured a new and innovative way to monitor industrial batteries. Industrial Battery Monitoring is a system that uses wireless technology to check battery power levels and keep you updated on the battery life of your industrial equipment. The system is compatible with all battery manufacturers and can monitor the batteries of forklifts and other common industrial machines.

The electrolyte sensor continuously checks the electrolyte levels of your batteries and sends the status wirelessly to an Internet Gateway. When the electrolyte levels are low, this means the acid in the electrolyte solution in the battery has reacted with the majority of the metal plates. When this occurs, the battery must be recharged, allowing for the chemical reaction to be reversed so that the electrolytes can react with the plates again at a later time.

The wireless signal sent by the electrolyte sensor to the wireless router allows for information to be sent across the wireless internet and phone channels. This wireless system can be customized to notify you of your battery’s power levels through email or cell phone. This allows equipment managers or warehouse workers to remotely monitor their machines from anywhere that has access to a wireless network.
