Gel tubular solar batteries

Exide's batteries for photovoltaic applications have been designed to provide high cycling performance under tropicalized environment. These batteries are produced in EXIDE India’s state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities, following stringent quality procedures and intense research. Exide solar batteries are designed for efficient storing of energy and providing power optimally whenever required.

These batteries withstand daily charge-discharge cycle, work even in partial state of charge condition and recharge fast.

 

EXIDE SOLATRON

Charge input from solar rays is insufficient to keep the batteries fully charged. During autonomy, batteries are discharged and do not see a recharge. These conditions result in batteries operating in Partial State of Charge and Deep Cycling operations. Also Solar systems are installed in remote areas and often exposing the batteries to arduous conditions. Such applications need the toughness of tubular and maintenance free operation of a VRLA and nothing can be better than Exide SOLATRON. 
 
The performance of tubular gel conforms to IEC 61427, IEC 60896 - 21/22.
 
FEATURES: 
 
Tubular Positive plates

Inverter/ups batteries


The most integral part of a UPS is the battery bank. The battery acts as a back-up power source that supports the UPS system. The most popular battery system being used with UPS is the Lead Acid battery system. Broadly, both AGM VRLA batteries and Tubular batteries are suitable for such applications.

VRLA batteries are flat plate batteries that do not require periodic topping-up with water and normally do not emit any fumes or gases on a continuous basis. They are best suitable for applications where back-up requirement is usually short, normally not exceeding 30 mins to 1 hour. These batteries are automatic choice where ambient temperature is not very high and space is a constraint. Exide's Powersafe VRLA batteries provide ideal back-up power for UPS systems.

Tubular batteries use a special technology by which the active material is encapsulated in polyester tubes to prevent shedding. These types of batteries are recommended for back-up power for UPS where environmental conditions are tough and high ambient temperature are common.
