SEALED MAINTENANCE FREE
The valve regulated, spill-proof construction of the POWER-SONIC battery allows trouble-free, safe operation in any position. There is no need to add electrolyte, as gases generated during charging are recombined in a unique "oxygen cycle".
No special handling precautions or shipping containers - surface or air - are required due to the 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.
Batteries may be used in series and/or parallel to obtain choice of voltage and capacity. Due to recent design breakthroughs, the same battery may be used in either cyclic or standby applications. Over 50 models are available to choose from.
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.
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.
LONG SHELF LIFE
A low self-discharge rate may allow 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.
WIDE OPERATING TEMPERATURE RANGE
Power-Sonic batteries may be discharged over a temperature range of -40 ÂºC to +60 ÂºC (-40 ÂºF to +140 ÂºF), and charged at temperatures ranging from -20 ÂºC to +50 ÂºC (4 ÂºF to +122 ÂºF).
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.
