At the heart of the Urban-Sweeper S2.0 is the battery, a powerful muscle that keeps the vehicle moving, and whose performance determines how efficient the sweeper can be. Innovative materials and design help optimize the battery’s capacity, durability and safety, making this one battery built to perform.

Battery Technology

Design

The 54.4 kWh lithium-ion battery counting 12 modules and a total of 4320 cells is integrated directly under the Waste hopper compartment providing energy to the powertrain with its 2 all-electric front wheel engines, 2 all-electric broom engines and the all-electric turbine.

Safety

24 temperature sensors were engineered to guarantee the battery surveillance at all time. The automatic battery heating and cooling system ensures harmless use of the battery throughout of the seasons. An overcharging protection circuit manages the charging of the battery. All intelligent features of the battery were developed to optimize the battery’s capacity, durability and safety.
