With the continuous promotion of the "carbon peaking and carbon neutrality" strategy, heavy trucks with changeable batteries are now facing an important development node, and battery swap stations for them are in urgent need now. With in-depth insight into the new energy heavy truck battery swapping needs, combined with technical advantages in the fields of power electronics and industrial control, VEICHI has now proposed an intelligent unmanned solution to provide fast, efficient and safe charging and swapping services, adding power to the popularization and sustainable development of new energy heavy trucks.
Intelligent Trucks Battery Swap Station
Green Impetus for Heavy Truck Transportation
According to the characteristics of battery swap stations for heavy trucks, VEICHI proposed an intelligent and unmanned hoisting battery station solution featuring mature technologies, high reliability, lower cost, smaller land occupation and faster swapping efficiency. The whole scheme adopts 7 + 1 structure, which is composed of intelligent system, modular charging bin, automatic power swapping system, vehicle management system, environmental safety facilities etc. The whole process is fully automatic and takes about 3-4min and fully meets the daily operation requirements.
Intelligent and Unmanned Hoisting Battery Station Solution
It includes data monitoring system, remote control system and battery management system to monitor and manage the whole battery station and each component.
Modular Charging Bin
This is used for battery charging and storage, including battery changer and battery storage devices.
Automatic Battery Swapping System
This means truss robots, including various detection and positioning equipment used to quickly replace the batteries of heavy trucks.
Vehicle Management System
This is used to manage the information of vehicles and drivers entering and leaving the heavy truck battery station to keep traffic orderly and safe.
This includes fire prevention, explosion prevention, waterproof facilities to ensure the operation environment of the battery station.
Fully automated, precise and intelligent operation
With intelligent technology, the full-automatic process from vehicle entry and exit to battery replacement is realized, which greatly improves working efficiency.
Unmanned operation, maximized safety and cost
Since there is no need for manual work, staff operation and management is reduced, so is the operating cost, and the safety risks caused by manual operation are also reduced to ensure the safety of the battery swapping process.
Uninterrupted, efficient and all-round service
Uninterrupted work for 24 hours per day continuously provides fast and efficient battery replacement service for vehicles.
