Exide Technologies, a provider of stored electrical-energy solutions, introduces the Relay Gel, the company's newest line of stationary batteries for network power applications, sold by Exide's GNB Industrial Power Business.
Relay Gel is engineered for high-temperature applications. It uses the Exide Sonnenschein gel technology, which provides greater heat dissipation capabilities to prolong battery life in high temperatures. The valve-regulated Relay Gel is available in capacities ranging from 27 to 91 amp-hours (at the 8 hour rate to 1.75VPC and 25 degrees C) and is produced in five BCI sizes, including U1, 22NF, 24, 27, and 30H/31. The battery line also is available in four terminal types: threaded (M6) copper alloy, flag, marine, and SAE.
A number of other key features are found in the Relay Gel battery's advanced design. Thick, high-tin, low-calcium silver positive plates resist corrosion. A reinforced polypropylene case and cover reduce battery wall deflection. And a second-generation helium leak detection system helps ensure the integrity of post and jar-tocover seals. All of these features help to increase product life in the field under normal operating conditions.
