According to Ajay Prasher, product marketing manager, for Caterpillar, it’s an interesting time in the industry, with decarbonization becoming more important. For this and many other reasons, Caterpillar developed the prototype batteries and announced the plan to exhibit them during bauma 2022.
Allister Dennis, product manager, said that the batteries are available in 48 volts (32 kWh), 300 volts (64 KWH) and 600 volts (64 kWh). These sizes provide the flexibility of use in many different vehicles in the construction, industrial and off-highway markets. Each battery includes a telematics kit to ensure it operates correctly and efficiently. You can see the battery prototype at bauma, Stand A4.336. Not at bauma? Learn more from this video.
