New Products * Batteries Trojan Battery Launches Reliant AGM with C-Max Technology Reliant AGM with C-Max Technology, a true deep-cycle AGM battery, is now available from Trojan Battery Co., LLC. Reliant AGM maximizes sustained performance and increases total energy output to meet demanding deepcycling requirements in Trojan's range of market applications. Reliant AGM is manufactured in the US at Trojan's newest production facility in Sandersville, Ga., and applications including aerial work platform, floor cleaning, golf, material handling, recreation, renewable energy and remote telecom will benefit from its deep-cycle design. Reliant AGM is also designed to power equipment used in locations where regulatory mandates require use of non-spillable batteries such as airports, healthcare facilities, shopping centers and educational institutions. Reliant's C-Max Technology incorporates a range of features not found in many of today's AGM battery offerings. The combination of its proprietary paste formula, separator, special polymer case design and maximum flame arrestors, delivers increased total energy output, maximized sustained performance, consistent quality and enhanced durability. NEC Energy Introduces 12-Volt Lithium-Ion Batteries for Tough, Critical Applications NEC Energy Solutions, an energy storage solution provider, has announced production availability of the ALM 12V35 product line of 12-volt batteries that offers high performance, long life and robust safety. With its EverSafe battery protection technology, the ALM 12V35 is immune to short circuit, overvoltage, under voltage and other common accidental battery abuse conditions. In addition, it can be assembled into battery arrays of 24 V, 36 V, or 48 V for up to 350 Ah and 18 kWh systems with no additional BMS devices necessary. The ALM 12V35 batteries are drop-in alternatives to common 12-volt, 35 amp-hour lead acid batteries and are solutions that significantly extend the service life and reduce the total cost of ownership of energy storage systems used with telecommunication equipment, remote off-grid power systems, uninterruptible power supplies (UPS), medical carts and solar photo voltaic systems. The ALM 12V35 is well suited for deep cycling applications such as weak and off-grid power systems including remote wireless base stations, oil and gas infrastructure, and portable lighting and signage systems. The ALM 12V35 offers system engineers the flexibility to match application requirements with standard and intelligent models. The intelligent ALM 12V35i is offered with integrated CAN Bus or SMbus communications for access to critical battery status, usage tracking, state of charge (SOC), runtime to empty and other parameters. Johnson Controls Unveils Battery System for Advanced Start-Stop Vehicles Johnson Controls has expanded its automotive battery offerings by introducing a Lithium Titanate battery. The company's latest 12-volt technology, which is a collaboration with Toshiba, will power Advanced Start-Stop vehicles. The Lithium Titanate chemistry is effective at quickly recharging, works well in a wide range of temperatures and can be easily integrated into a vehicle's 12-volt electrical system. An Advanced Start-Stop system has two batteries. A 12-volt Absorbent Glass Mat (AGM) or Enhanced Flooded Battery (EFB), which will start the engine and supply power to accessories such as lights, navigation systems and radios. The 12-volt Lithium Titanate battery will primarily accept and store regenerative braking energy during vehicle deceleration, enabling greater power and load management capabilities. "With an Advanced Start-Stop system, drivers could save up to 8 percent every time they fill up their gas tank as the batteries enable the engine to shut off more frequently and for longer periods of time," said Lisa Bahash, group vice president and general manager Original Equipment, Johnson Controls Power Solutions. "This is also a great solution for our customers because the technology allows for greater fuel savings without major changes to the existing powertrain and electrical systems." 24 Battery Power * Spring 2015
