A gel battery (gel) has the sulfuric acid electrolyte mixed with silicon to form the gel texture. VRLA – Gel batteries do not require water addition, they emit less gas and have much less electrolyte leakage than FLA batteries. Gel batteries are considered to be more resistant to extreme operating temperatures. Although they belong to the VRLA category, their construction is similar to FLA batteries except for the use of electrolyte. Gel battery separator is made of microporous plastic material.

EnerSys Hawker Evolution

Hawker Evolution batteries are valve regulated gas recombination batteries with gelled electrolyte, accepting up to 80% DOD/C5. This range is suitable for use in forklift trucks, pallet trucks, electric vehicles and automatic transport systems for low and normal duty applications. The full benefits of Hawker evolution's high performance is optimised by using the battery in combination with Hawker high frequency smart chargers: Lifetech, Lifeplus or Life IQ, that allow a short charging time of only 8 hours in condition of 60% DOD or 12 hours charging time at 80% DOD/C5. The robust design of a traction cell is based on tubular positive plates (PzS type). Alloy (lead calcium with tin for the positive plate), the active mass and separator are adapted for the performance requirements of the battery. With minimal gas emissions it is ideal for use in sensitive environments such as the food industry. The Hawker Evolution battery range is available in DIN and BS dimensions, complying with standards DIN/EN 60254-2 and IEC 254-2.

EnerSys PowerBloc

Powerbloc and Powerbloc Dry are ranges of bloc batteries for all applications in small traction from cleaning machines to pallet trucks, industrial electric vehicles, aerial platforms, Automated Guided Vehicles, as well as domestic applications like wheelchairs, golf carts. Constructed with the highest quality materials, the blocs can be recharged with HF or 50 HZ chargers.

EnerSys PowerSafe OPzV

The EnerSys range of PowerSafe OPzV batteries is suitable for a broad range of applications including telecommunications, power generating stations and distribution systems, railway, airport and seaport signalling, computing, emergency lighting, automation and measuring systems. The PowerSafe OPzV range of valve regulated lead-acid batteries uses a proven combination of gel and tubular technologies to offer a very high level of reliability. These single cells benefit from an optimised plate design that gives capacities in excess of the DIN standard values. In addition, the PowerSafe OPzV range of batteries offers both an excellent float life and a high cycle life for a truly flexible solution.
