SAFT COMPACT NICKEL BATTERY
Saft’s new Compact nickel batteries to streamline footprint and maintenance budgets for industrial sites:
This new range of nickel batteries is designed to support critical systems in remote and hard-to-reach industrial installations.
Operators can upgrade directly from VRLA batteries in the same footprint and using existing chargers.
Compact nickel battery solutions offer a long operational life of over 20 years, at least 3 times more than VRLA batteries.
Saft’s new Compact range of maintenance-free nickel batteries for industrial backup can be fitted in the same footprint and share charging protocols as lead-acid batteries.
Features & Benefits
The Compact maintenance-free nickel batteries are designed to support essential control systems and other critical equipment in remote and hard-to-access locations in offshore oil and gas, utility, manufacturing, and rail trackside sites.
Manufactured in Valdosta, GA (USA), the Compact nickel battery has a small footprint and are up to 30 percent lighter than VRLA and operate in temperatures from -20 to +50°C and tolerate -50°C to +70°C.
Nickel electrochemistry is proven to help operators achieve the lowest possible Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) thanks to a long life of over 20 years, predictable performance and high reliability.
Lead-acid batteries are more expensive over the long term due to replacement and maintenance costs. In addition, they need regular testing and can suffer poor reliability due to ‘sudden death’, where they can lose all capacity unexpectedly.
Single step charging voltage of 1.39 Volts per cell.
Compact L ENERGY range from 83 to 185 Amp-hours (Ah).
Compact M MEDIUM POWER range from 76 to 180 Amp-hours (Ah).
Exceptional energy density: 100 Watt-hours per liter (Wh/l).
Long operational life >20 years.
Operate in temperatures from -20 to +50°C.
Tolerate temperatures from -50°C to +70°C.
