New 12-volt battery is ideal for remote area applications

September 11, 2012 // By Paul Buckley
Trojan Battery Co. has added a new 140 AH 12-AGM battery to the company’s product family.  The new 12-AGM is ideal for applications in remote areas where proper maintenance cannot be guaranteed.

The 12-AGM, 12-volt battery is designed to support a wide range of renewable energy and backup power for industrial and residential applications, especially those found in remote areas where there is limited access to clean water which is required to maintain traditional flooded batteries.

Trojan’s deep-cycle AGM (absorbed glass mat) batteries feature a number of design elements to provide optimum performance.  Robust plates extend the lifecycle of Trojan’s deep-cycle AGM batteries.  A separator of glass fibers serves to isolate the positive and negative plates while acting as a blotter to absorb the electrolyte.  The separator is maintained under compression between plates to assure contact with the plate surfaces resulting is reliable power generation.  A computer-generated, low calcium grid design is optimized for high-power density, and allows for reduced gas emissions.

 In addition, the battery features a flame arresting, one-way press relief vent to prevent buildup of excessive pressure.  Trojan’s deep-cycle AGM batteries are low temperature tolerant, shock and vibration resistant, and have a low internal resistance for higher discharge current and high charging efficiency.

Trojan’s deep-cycle batteries for renewable energy applications are available worldwide.
