VRLA AGM and GEL Batteries
VRLA AGM: design life 7-10 years
VRLA GEL: design life 12 years
VRLA GEL 2 volt cells: design life 20 years
The AGM range has very low internal resistance making them particulary suitable for high current discharge applications such as for inverters, thrusters and winches as well as engine starting.
The GEL model range offer best deep cycle durability and overall longer life.
The use of high purity materials and lead calcium grids ensure that for both AGM and GEL products have particularly low self-discharge so that they will not go flat during long periods without charge.
Both ranges are supplied with M8 drilled, flat copper terminals ensuring best possible connection contact and eliminating the need for battery terminals. Manufactured under ISO 9001 quality standards, they are compliant with both CE and UL specifications in ABS fireproof containers and come with Victron's 2 year world-wide warranty.
The market for battery systems is developing rapidly. There is a growing demand for efficient batteries with a large energy density. (That is, low-weight to power capacity ratio). Victron Energy has a suitable response for this demand: the Victron Lithium-ion battery system. This is comprised of a very modern battery with an advanced control and security system. the so-called Battery Management System (BMS). The BMS controls the charging and discharging, immediately takes action when certain (critical) values are exceeded and safeguards an efficient energy-transfer.
OPzS Batteries for Solar Power Applications
Long life flooded tubular plate batteries
Design life: >.20 years at 20º.C, >.10 years at 30º.C, >.5 years at 40º.C.
Cycling expectancy of up to 1500 cycles at 80% depth of discharge.
Manufactured according to DIN 40736, EN 60896 and IEC 896-1.
Under normal operating conditions and 20º.C, distilled water has to be added every 2 - 3 years.
Dry-charged or ready for use electrolyte filled
The batteries are available filled with electrolyte or dry-charged (for long term stocking, container transport or air transport). Dry charged batteries have to be filled with diluted sulphuric acid.
