EFB 740 17

EFB 740 17
Fits the following applications

New battery type!

Therefore it is best to note this on your Banner list for future order dispositions.

Sustainability

SAVE FUEL AND CO2 AND THEREBY REDUCE ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT
with the sustainable batteries from Banner. 100% environmentally compatible used battery recycling.

original equipment

OE= ORIGINAL QUALITY FOR RETROFITTING.
Banner batteries meet exactly the stipulations of leading German automotive manufacturers. These power packs are designed for modern vehicles with high energy requirements.

EFB

EFB = Enhanced Flooded Battery, the cycle-resistant starter battery.

“carbon loaded”

The carbon particles raise the conductivity of the active mass and thus the current absorption capacity of the battery, which results in a marked shortening of the time required for charging.
In addition, the use of carbon additives reduces gassing voltage thus preventing potential acid stratification.

Maximum energy requirement

Drivers spend the night in their vehicles and use a large number of electrical consumers. Therefore, today’s long-distance trucks are not merely a means of transporting goods from A to B. They are also the truckers’ workplace (keyword office) and frequently their mobile home (keywords kitchen, living and sleeping accommodations) for up to five days in the week.

Rear chassis installation

This guarantees extreme vibration resistance when the battery is installed at the rear of the truck.

MAX LONGLIFE durability

Maximum, long-term durability owing to highly advanced battery design using thick and robust mesh structures with a closed frame, special mass compositions and further innovative details.

TOP CYCLE Life

MEGA cycle resistance.

BUFFALO BULL EFB
THE LONG-DISTANCE TRUCK POWER.

 

The electrical system batteries in the commercial vehicle segment must fulfill a growing number of special requirements:

• The comfort function in long-distance trucks (drivers stay overnight in their trucks and use numerous electrical consumers).
• Extreme vibration resistance in the case of the battery integration at the rear of the truck.

To meet these needs, Banner has launched the new Buffalo Bull EFB onto the market. This is because today’s long-distance trucks are not merely a means of transporting goods from A to B. They are also the truckers’ workplace (keyword office) and frequently their mobile home (keywords kitchen, living and sleeping accommodations) for up to five days a week.  

 

Please take very careful note of these tips during battery exchanges!
Warning! Under no circumstances install a conventional wet battery in a vehicle, which in serial production has been fitted with an EFB battery. Should an exchange be necessary, only use an EFB battery with an identical box and in the same performance class. 

 

Banner tip! A conventional starter battery can be upgraded to a more powerful and cycle-resistant Buffalo Bull EFB. Please contact your Banner customer advisor.

 

Box B
The Buffalo Bull EFB 690 17 can replace the Buffalo Bull type 680 32/SHD 680 32/SHD PRO 680 08

Box C
The Buffalo Bull EFB 740 17 can replace the Buffalo Bull type 725 11/SHD 725 11/ SHD PRO 725 03

 

All EFB batteries are available from summer 2018 and therefore it is best to note this on your Banner list for future order dispositions.

TECHNICAL DATA AND INFORMATION

 

  • Offer of two standard battery sizes (boxes B and C) with 190 Ah or 240 Ah
  • Increased cyclical resistance owing to the active mass recipe and non-woven covers
  • Robust design and top vibration resistance due to special set bonding
  • “Carbon loaded”: The carbon additives lead to a marked reduction of the charging time!
  • Improved mesh corrosion resistance due to the use of the continuous production process
  • Calcium technology for minimal water consumption
  • Designed for highest energy demand due to increasing comfort functions in long-distance trucks
  • Maintenance-free (no topping up with water) under normal operating conditions
  • Central degassing with integrated flame arrestor
  • Add-ons for heightened product safety: short circuit protection, ESD plugs*
  • Dimensions in accordance with EN 50342-4:2009

 

• ESD = electrostatic discharges are disruptive voltage breakdowns caused by major potential differences. These discharges (sometimes visible due to sparks) cause brief, high electrical current and can lead to the ignition of flammable materials. It is precisely this that the ESD plugs prevent with absolute safety.
