Maintenance Free Lead-Acid Batteries-The valve regulated, spill-proof construction of the Sealed Lead-Acid battery allows trouble-free, safe operation in any position. There is no need to add electrolyte, as gases generated during over-charge are recombined in a unique “oxygen cycle.
Easy Handling – No special handling precautions or shipping containers – surface or air – are required due to leak-proof construction.
Long Service Life – Under normal operating conditions, four or five years of dependable service life can be expected in stand-by applications, or between 200 and 1000 charge/discharge cycles depending on the average depth of discharge.
Design Flexibility – Batteries may be used in series and/or parallel to obtain choice of voltage and capacity. Batteries may be used in either cyclic or standby applications.
Rugged Construction – The high impact resistant battery case is made either of non-conductive ABS plastic or styrene. Large capacity batteries frequently have polypropylene cases. All of these materials impart great resistance to shock, vibration, chemicals and heat.
Compact – Batteries use state-of-the-art design, high grade materials, and a carefully controlled plate-making process to provide excellent output per cell.
High Discharge Rate – Low internal resistance allows discharge currents of up to ten times the rated capacity of the battery. Relatively small batteries may thus be specified in applications requiring high peak currents.
Deep Discharge Recovery – Special separators, advanced plate composition, and a carefully balanced electrolyte system have greatly improved the ability of recovering from excessively deep discharge.
Long Shelf Life – A low self-discharge rate permits storage of fully charged batteries for up to a year at room temperature before charging is required. Lower storage temperatures enhance shelf life characteristics even further.
