PREMIUM AGM BATTERY

FOR MODERN LONGDISTANCE TRUCKS

COMING SOON!

THE BUFFALO BULL AGM BATTERY
The Buff alo Bull EFB product line was launched onto the market three years ago and above all is highly popular amongst international fl eet customers. However, the demands made upon the energy supply in modern long-distance trucks are constantly increasing owing to intensive hotel functions (e.g. 5 days per week) and a higher power requirement when stationary, e.g. through cooling when parked. Moreover, micro-hybrid features such as recuperative braking and so-called sailing, i.e. at a certain speed, the “foot off the gas” trigger element temporarily switches off the engine, as well installation near an axle, all create strains upon the battery.

 

THE AGM BATTERY IS AN ALL-ROUND TALENT
For a number of years, manufacturers have been trying to use a dual system for the aforementioned applications. This involves the installation of two truck batteries, with a conventional starter version for the engine and several GEL or AGM power packs for the supply of the vehicle electrical system and various consumers when the truck is stationary. However, owing to the fact that such a dual system is not ideal from either a technical or economic perspective, the AGM truck battery has now come into its own, as it offers optimum starts and also feeds the various consumers with power. In 2022, with the Buffalo Bull AGM, Banner will become the fi rst European producer to bring a battery onto the market with a capacity of 210 Ah and 1,200 A cold starting. This new premium class battery will then solve the problems inherent to modern, longdistance trucks with features requiring large amounts of energy and in addition provide extended service life and enhanced failure resistance.
