Saft SRX Ni-Cd batteries are designed to provide very high performance in rail applications such as diesel locomotive starting and emergency braking of metros and high speed trains.
SRX batteries are used where high current discharges are required.
Nickel-cadmium batteries have a legendary reputation for robustness, reliability and service life.
This is the benchmark technology for difficult and demanding applications:
Operating temperatures from –40 °C to +60 °C (because the electrolyte has a very low freezing point), excellent cycling capability (up to 3,000 cycles), long storage life, and low or zero maintenance.
SRX – HIGH POWER BACK-UP FOR RAIL & MASS TRANSIT
- SRX Ni-Cd batteries are designed to provide very high performance in rail applications such as diesel locomotive starting and emergency braking of metros and high speed trains. SRX batteries are used where high current discharges are required.
- Diesel engine starting.
- Power back-up.
- Short duration high peak discharges.
- Low maintenance (2 years without topping up with water).
- Long life: more than 15 years.
- High reliability.
- Wide operating temperature range.
- Excellent changeability.
Integrated Battery Systems:
SRX batteries can be used to create complete battery systems comprising: Cells (for energy storage) together with integrated water filling system.
Electrical systems: such as interface, chargers, fuses.
Mechanical systems: such as a rail mounted sliding tray for ease of integration into the train. A complete range of 9 standard rail battery systems is available.
Plate Technology: Sintered / PBE: well-proven sintered positive electrode, a compact plastic bonded negative electrode (PBE).
Rated capacities from 22 Ah up to 375 Ah.
Containers : Steel or stainless steel or polypropylene or flame retardant plastic containers – ideally suited to the requirements of rail transport. Stainless steel containers are designed specifically for railway rolling stock applications, providing a high resistance to chemical and physical impact.
Crates : Steel containers are assembled in wooden crates Plastic containers are assembled in compact steel crates.
