A manufacturer of deep-cycle batteries expands its product offering with the launch of Industrial flooded line of batteries for renewable energy (RE) and backup-power applications. Intended to support large daily loads where the batteries are cycled regularly, Trojan Battery’s deep-cycle industrial versions work well in a wide range of photovoltaic (PV) systems.
The Industrial product family is intended for use in large off-grid PV systems, off-grid hybrid PV systems, grid-tied PV systems with battery backup, smart grid peak shifting systems and a variety of other applications. Engineered with advanced battery technologies that deliver reliable power, the units are tested to meet International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) and Battery Council International (BCI) standards.
The flooded batteries are for deep-cycle use and optimized for deep discharge and recharge cycles characteristic of RE systems. The Industrial line features five different configurations to meet various capacity needs.
The manufacturer’s industrial line of batteries is comprised of removable 2-V cells bundled in a secondary containment case to form single, high-capacity 4 and 6-V batteries. Components of the individual cells are assembled in a rugged polypropylene housing to protect the internal plates from damage that may occur during transport and installation. The 2-V cells are enclosed in a larger polyethylene outer case that protects against damage caused by harsh environmental conditions such as moisture and dirt buildup, as well as safeguards against potential acid leaks. For added protection, thick-walled cases feature a lattice design that reinforces the outer case’s structural integrity. The removable 2-V cells are easier to maintain and replace while the combined insulation of the dual container construction provides added protection against extreme temperatures.
The batteries feature a lower profile and wider stance to evenly distribute weight throughout the battery. By creating a lower center of gravity the battery profile enhances overall stability. Dual handles molded into the case make it easy to move, transport, and install.
Engineered for high-energy requirements, the Industrial line delivers 1,500 cycles at 80% depth-of-discharge and features advanced battery technologies that provide high performance.
In addition, the Advanced Lead Acid Battery Consortium (ALABC) recently welcomed the company back into its membership. As a manufacturer of deep-cycle batteries, Trojan is renewing its membership with the ALABC in an effort to actively participate in the consortium’s research program and assist in the continued development of advanced lead-acid and lead carbon batteries for current and emerging markets.
