Over the years the battery systems have developed from NiCad to maintenance free, valve regulated, lead acid batteries. These have seen wide application in control systems.
Magellan Power has been pioneering the use of Lithium Iron Phosphate batteries for industrial applications.
Some of the reasons why you may want to consider Lithium Iron Phosphate batteries for
your next substation application are:
· Lithium Iron Phosphate batteries can work at up to 70C
· For equivalent lead acid batteries, they are a third of the weight and half the size
· Lithium batteries have more charge cycles than lead acid, up to 4000 for a 200 AHr battery
· They have a high efficiency charge / discharge rate, low self-discharge and long shelf life
