With lithium ion battery based power systems Bentzen Autokaross A/S is able to provide their customers within the rescue, police and industry markets with highly reliable, safe and long lasting vehicles.


When implementing Clayton Power lithium battery systems Bentzen Autokaross A/S is able to utilize the features of lithium such as low weight, fast charge times and high energy to create premium special purpose vehicles for our customers. Where benefits such as high reliability, safety and long lasting solutions are key for the end-users. As Michael Roed CEO of Bentzen Autokaross A/S explain why they have chosen a lithium power solution for a SAR emergency vehicle: "in order to solve the tasks we get, we need something that is as reliable as possible."

With the Clayton Power lithium systems, customers see power solutions in different eyes entirely, Michael Roed continues: "We save weight, which is very important, and it (the lithium solution ed.) has a much longer lifetime … we have significantly more power available, a conventional battery can be discharged with 30%-50%, where a lithium ion battery can be discharged with 80%." Compared to traditional lead-acid solutions, this means that the lithium battery technology enables applications and systems that were not otherwise possible. By equipping vehicles/products with lithium battery technology, companies ensure that a high level of quality is reached and that critical equipment gets the needed power in order to function whenever it is needed.

For extra long periods of operational time, diesel power generators are used as battery extenders As Michael Roed explains about a command vehicle that has to be electrically running for up to 3 days: "We can, by a diesel generator, charge two 100Ah, 12 volt lithium ion batteries through combi inverter/chargers in under one hour, and that while running with computers and internet on the system." This opens up for an entire new world where lithium ion batteries can be used for cheaper, long lasting and environmentally friendly power solutions, where the use of fuel is reduced drastically.

TRA SNOW AND SUN - SOLAR TILE MOUNT

TRA SNOW AND SUN - SOLAR TILE MOUNT

You haven't installed a tile mount that is easier to install than the Solar Tile Mount manufactured by TRA Snow and Sun. Solar Tile Mount is used on all tile roof profiles: flat, mid, and high. It is made in the USA of aluminum alloy for strength and excellent corrosion resistance. Solar Tile Mount is built to allow more ease in installation with more rise from the tile surface to the rail for better air flow below panels. The adjustable base is longer than most allowing attachment 6" to the left or right to have the bracket in the base of the pan of the tile and still fasten to the rafter. Solar Tile Mount is adjustable for counter batten systems from ¾" to 3". The horizontal rail is directly above base fasteners giving greater uplift resistance than any other system. For superior waterproofing apply TRA Snow and Sun's butyl backed VersaFlash aluminum flashing. No tile flashing is needed on top of the tile for greater labor and material cost savings.
