NiCad cells are designed for harsh environments, extremes in temperature & offer broad performance in any application. They are well suited for Utility & telecommunications applications where temperature, cyclic rate or depth of discharge are excessive. They are ideal for generator starting when the consequence of failure is truly critical. SBS NiCad flooded batteries are manufactured in high, medium & low rate capacities & therefore can be selected for any discharge profile. When the environmental or performance demands overcome other technologies, the SBS NiCad family will deliver superior operation over their 25 year design life backed by a 20 year pro-rated warranty, 5 of which is at 100%. The NiCad Series is produced in pocket plate, valve-regulated pocket plate & fiber plate design. NiCad batteries utilize potassium-hydroxide (KOH) as an electrolyte & therefore are not a corrosive acid. The oxidation/reduction of Nickel-Cadmium greatly reduces hydrogen gas production during charge & discharge under normal conditions.
KP SERIES NICAD POCKET PLATE BATTERIES
Nickel Cadmium Pocket plate batteries are the most reliable and rugged batteries available today. They can withstand to a great extent any type of abuse like overcharge, deep discharge, even accidental reverse charge and can be stored in any state of charge Pocket plate batteries are manufactured in 3 series (L, M, & H) based on their performance capabilities. They are available in 1.2V single cells and in 1.2V, 2.4V & 3.6V multi-cell blocks. SBS’s Pocket plate batteries are supplied with the electrolyte, intercell connectors, related hardware and accessories required for normal operation and maintenance.
KF SERIES NICAD FIBRE PLATE BATTERIES
The Nickel Fibre matrix used for the fibre plate allows 90% of the electrode volume for holding the active material. The three dimensional fibre structure also provides good conductivity to ensure excellent electrical performance. In addition the Nickel Cadmium Fibre plate technology uses active material free from graphite and iron. Elimination of graphite ensures that the electrolyte does not get carbonated and the elimination of iron reduces water consumption. Fibre plate batteries are manufactured in 4 series (L, M, H & X) based on their performance capabilities. They are also available in 1.2V single cells or 2.4V or 3.6V multi-cell blocks. SBS’s Fibre Plate batteries are supplied with the electrolyte, intercell connectors, related hardware and accessories required for normal operation and maintenance.
VRPP SERIES NICAD VALVE REGULATED BATTERIES
VRPP (valve regulated pocket plate) batteries were designed to meet the needs of applications requiring the traditional high reliability of nickel cadmium pocket plate cells without the need to top-up with water. The VRPP battery works on the oxygen recombination principle and therefore has a much reduced water consumption. The level of recombination of these cells is 85-95%. Normal vented type cells will have only a 30-35% recombination efficiency. When the VRPP cells are properly float charged (between 1.41-1.43vpc) they will not need to be topped off with water for nearly 20 years. If the levels do become low during the life of the battery there are provisions to add water to the cells. The VRPP batteries are available in 1.2V single cells or 2.4V or 3.6V multi-cell blocks. SBS’s VRPP batteries are supplied with the electrolyte, intercell connectors, related hardware and accessories required for normal operation and maintenance.
KR SERIES NICAD RAILWAY & TRANSIT BATTERIES
Storage Battery Systems offers a wide variety of railway, transportation & signalling batteries, battery system and chargers for engine starting, emergency braking, lighting, HVAC, radio communications, access control and as prime mover power solutions for the transportation industry. These include charging & battery systems for mass transit, rolling stock, street traffic control & line-yard signaling. Whether remotely deployed under extreme conditions such as a siding signal-switch or within the communications center as computer power back-up, the SBS solution will deliver the performance and service life required from your most demanding applications. I most instances, transit appilications require customized cases, jars or enclosures. Contact us for specifying, applications engineering and quotations.
