As part of its ongoing strategy to offer a wide range of deep-cycle battery options for the renewable energy market, Trojan Battery Co. has added a new 140AH 12-AGM battery to its product family. As the world’s leading manufacturer of deep-cycle batteries, the new 12-AGM is ideal for applications that require maintenance-free battery power such as in remote areas where proper maintenance cannot be guaranteed.
“The 12-AGM, 12-volt battery is designed to support a wide range of applications including renewable energy and backup power for industrial and residential applications, especially those found in remote areas where there is limited access to clean water which is required to maintain traditional flooded batteries,” said Bryan Godber, Trojan’s senior vice president of renewable energy. “This new addition to our AGM line shows Trojan’s continued commitment to offer a broad range of sealed deep-cycle battery options for renewable energy applications. The 12-AGM is proudly made in the USA and expands Trojan’s range of amp hour offerings in our AGM line.”
Trojan’s deep-cycle AGM (absorbed glass mat) batteries feature a number of design elements to provide optimum performance. Robust plates extend the lifecycle of Trojan’s deep-cycle AGM batteries. A separator of glass fibers serves to isolate the positive and negative plates while acting as a blotter to absorb the electrolyte. The separator is maintained under compression between plates to assure contact with the plate surfaces resulting is reliable power generation. A computer-generated, low calcium grid design is optimized for high-power density, and allows for reduced gas emissions. In addition, the battery features a flame arresting, one-way press relief vent to prevent buildup of excessive pressure. Trojan’s deep-cycle AGM batteries are low temperature tolerant, shock and vibration resistant, and have a low internal resistance for higher discharge current and high charging efficiency.
