The Power-Sonic valve regulated, spill-proof construction of the Power-Sonic
battery allows trouble-free, safe operation in any position. There is no need
to add electrolyte, as gases generated during over-charge are recombined in a
unique "oxygen cycle."
No special handling precautions or shipping containers - surface or air - are
required due to leak-proof construction.
The high watt-hour per dollar value of Power-Sonic batteries is made possible
by the materials used in a sealed lead-acid battery: they are readily available
and low in cost.
Long Service Life
Under normal operating conditions, four or five years of dependable service
life can be expected in stand-by applications, or between 200 and 1000
charge/discharge cycles depending on the average depth of discharge for
Batteries may be used in series and/or parallel to obtain choice of voltage and
capacity. Due to recent design breakthroughs, the same battery may be used in
either cyclic or standby applications. Over 50 Power-Sonic battery models are
available to choose from.
The high impact resistant battery case is made either of non- conductive ABS
plastic or styrene. Large capacity batteries frequently have polypropylene
cases. All of these materials impart great resistance to shock, vibration,
chemicals and heat for Power-Sonic batteries.
Power-Sonic batteries use state-of-the-art design, high grade materials, and a
carefully controlled plate-making process to provide excellent output per cell.
The high energy density results in superior power/volume and power/weight
High Discharge Rate
Low internal resistance allows discharge currents of up to ten times the rated
capacity of the battery. Relatively small Power-Sonic batteries may thus be
specified in applications requiring high peak currents.
Long Shelf Life
A low self-discharge rate permits storage of fully charged batteries for up to
a year at room temperature before charging is required. Lower storage
temperatures enhance shelf life characteristics even further.
Wide Operating Temperature Range
Power-Sonic batteries may be discharged over a temperature range of -40 degrees
C to +60 degrees C (-40 degrees F to +140 degrees F) and charged at
temperatures ranging from -20 degrees C to +50 degrees C (4 F to +122 F).
Deep Discharge Recovery
Special separators, advanced plate composition, and a carefully balanced
electrolyte system have greatly improved the ability of recovering from
excessively deep discharge.
