CHICAGO, At ProMat, April 3, 2017 – AeroVironment, Inc. (NASDAQ: AVAV), a leading supplier of industrial fast and opportunity charging solutions for electric forklifts, today at ProMat 2017 (booth number S-361) launched a patent-pending advanced version of its ConnectRx™ for its PosiCharge ProCore™ line of electric forklift chargers for the materials handling industry. According to the NIST White Paper “Towards Improved Forklift Safety,” more than 100,000 forklift accidents occur every year in the United States. The study also reported that one in six U.S. workplace deaths are caused by forklift accidents. Solutions that enhance forklift safety can positively impact workplace productivity and profitability. “Last year AeroVironment launched ProCore with a focus on performance,” said Ken Karklin, general manager and vice president of AeroVironment’s Efficient Energy Systems business segment. “With its intelligent charging algorithm, companion app for easy configuration, and battery universal design, our goal for ProCore is to improve the performance of our customers’ operations.”

Excerpt from our latest press published in DC Velocity:
"Two product categories that haven't changed much in the last 10 years—batteries and chargers for lift trucks and mobile devices—are undergoing a transformation.
If you've been operating under the assumption that the batteries and chargers you will use to power your forklifts and mobile devices a few years from now will be pretty much the same as the ones you've used for the past decade, you'd better sit down. We have news for you: This normally staid product category is on the verge of a revolution.
Advances in technology are fostering a wave of innovation in chargers and batteries—both very large ones, such as those for electric lift trucks, and very small ones for mobile devices like bar-code scanners, RFID readers, and printers. There's a lot going on, and we can't cover every recent development in this short article. But we can offer a few examples of the capabilities that are turning old-school equipment into 21st century tools. Here are five that bear watching:
GREENVILLE, N.C. (July 18, 2016) – Industrial forklift batteries are an expensive investment. Although they eventually need replacement even in ideal conditions, deep discharge, overcharging, undercharging and poor maintenance practices can contribute to premature failure. Yale Battery Vision is a new battery management solution that provides valuable insights to improve battery care and life.
You know that our ProCore family of intelligent chargers support and charge any material handling battery - regardless of type, brand, voltage or size. You’ve heard that ProCore is the most efficient electric forklift charger available, and has the lowest monthly utility costs. But did you know that you can control ProCore from your smartphone? It’s true - there’s an app for that. In fact, ProCore is the first electric forklift charger designed to be managed through a mobile app. It doesn’t get much more convenient than that.
