Starting applications

Engine starting batteries play a critical role in the reliable operation of standby generators – which need to start instantly should a building’s main power supply fail, as well as in starting auxiliary equipment such as fire pumps.

Starting batteries must deliver a high current for as long as it takes to crank the engine to starting. They may also have to support some pre-start loads, such as heaters or lubricating oil pumps. This demanding application calls for batteries that offer high reliability, high discharge capability and operation in extremely low temperatures.

Alcad high discharge rate batteries recover their voltage instantaneously, making them ideal for engine starting.
