Features & Benefits

Constructed in robust and reliable Saft Nife® Ni-Cd pocket plate, our block batteries function in a wide range of temperatures, resist electrical abuse, shock and vibrations and need only basic maintenance. This ensures a low total cost of ownership (TCO) over a life cycle that can last 20 years or more.

 

Technical Specifications

SBLE blocks (L type)

  • Capacity range at C5 A rate: from 7.5 Ah to 1690 Ah in 58 capacity steps
  • Typical discharge range is from one hour to 100 hours
  • Operate in temperatures from - 20°C to + 50°C
  • Designed for applications where the battery is required to provide:
    - a reliable source of energy over relatively long discharge periods
    - a current that is relatively low in comparison with the total stored energy
    - discharges are generally infrequent
  • Trouble-free long service life of 20 years or more
     

SBM blocks (M type)

  • Capacity range at C5 A rate: from 11 Ah to 1445 Ah in 68 capacity steps
  • Typical discharge range from 15 minutes to two hours
  • Operate in temperatures from - 20°C to + 50°C
  • Designed for applications where the batteries are usually required to sustain:
    - electrical loads for between 30 minutes to three hours
    - "mixed" loads involving a mixture of high and low discharge rates
    - frequent or infrequent discharges
  • Trouble-free long service life of 20 years or more

 

SBH blocks (H type)

  • Capacity at C5 A rate: from 8.3 Ah to 920 Ah in 51 capacity steps
  • Typical discharge range is from one second to 30 minutes
  • Operate in temperatures from - 20°C to + 50°C
  • Designed for applications demanding :
    - a relatively high current over short periods - usually less than 30 min duration
    - applications can have frequent or infrequent discharges
  • Trouble-free long service life of 20 years or more
