Bellingham, Wash.-headquartered Alpha Technologies has expanded its AlphaCell battery offering to include the new RE Series valve-regulated lead-acid batteries, which the company says are designed specifically for renewable energy cycling applications.
‘Alpha has developed the AlphaCell RE batteries in response to customer demand for multiple orientation options and high-cycling capability,’ says Paul Shmotolokha, vice president of international sales.
The AlphaCell RE front-terminal battery is intended for renewable energy storage in either grid-tied battery backup or off-grid power system applications. The front-terminal access was designed for ease of maintenance and installation and offers a reduced profile for higher energy density in cabinet or rack applications, according to Alpha. The low-calcium lead-tin alloy plates allow for long life in both cycling and float applications.
The AlphaCell RE top-terminal battery is also intended for renewable energy applications in either grid-tied battery backup or off-grid power system applications. The robust plate technology provides for extended life cycle, and a computer-generated grid design is optimized for high power density, Alpha adds.
