Trojan Battery Co. has added a new 140AH 12-AGM battery to its product family.
The company says the new battery is ideal for renewable energy applications in remote areas, where proper maintenance cannot necessarily be guaranteed.
Trojan's deep-cycle absorbed glass mat (AGM) batteries include a separator of glass fibers that serves to isolate the positive and negative plates while acting as a blotter to absorb the electrolyte, the company explains, adding that the separator is maintained under compression between plates to ensure contact with the plate surfaces.
In addition, the battery features a flame-arresting, one-way press relief vent to prevent buildup of excessive pressure. Trojan's deep-cycle AGM batteries are low-temperature tolerant and shock and vibration resistant, and have a low internal resistance for higher discharge current and high charging efficiency, the company adds.
