Whenever a system is installed, there are multiple factors to consider regarding the operational loads the system will be subjected to. For example, a mounted system will transmit more load and vibration than an isolated system.
At Xerotech, we use predictive modelling based on experimental tests and numerical simulations to predict how our battery packs will behave under different conditions.
We recommend not to exceed the following load conditions without further investigation or application engineering reviews.
|Max Loads (Assuming Horizontal Mounting)||X (Forwards/Backwards)||Y (Sideways)||Z (Vertical)|
A battery pack with a daily shunt load of 0.5g but with 8 fixings used, you can double the number of cycles to 8,000 before failure.
If there’s a possibility that the battery pack may be subject to shock loads or peak loads above these ratings, it is recommended that shock absorbers or compliant mounts are included in the mechanical system.
G-dampers within the direction of travel are also recommended to “snub” loads in the event of an emergency stop.
