Deep-cycle batteries for solar applications

May 31st, 2017, Published in Articles: Energize

 

Trojan Battery has launched its new line of maintenance-free, true deep-cycle absorbent glass mat (AGM) batteries specifically designed for solar and other renewable energy applications. With its non-spillable design, the new batteries enable installers to customise the use and position of the batteries in customer applications, and are certified for non-hazardous shipping. This battery family features the company’s proprietary carbon additive which helps reduce the effects of partial state of charge (PSOC) or undercharging which is common in renewable energy applications. Operating at PSOC on a regular basis can quickly diminish the overall life of a battery, which results in frequent and costly battery replacements. These batteries are temperature tolerant, shock and vibration resistant and have a low internal resistance for higher discharge current and higher charging efficiency. These features make it the ideal battery for the harsh and demanding environments of off-grid as well as grid-connected systems with frequent cycling needs. The company offers a three-year warranty for stationary applications.
