Vantex maintenance-free* nickel cadmium battery range

Its Vantex NiCad batteries are at the heart of power backup systems in global industries including oil and gas exploration, production and distribution utilities and manufacturing. For customers seeking a maintenance-free* pocket plate nickel cadmium battery, Vantex is the brand of choice. If main power fails, the powerful battery ensures continuity for mission-critical loads. It also contributes to ensuring safe shutdown processes, bridges to standby power and the safeguarding of precious computer data. Standard power backup applications include UPS, substation switchgears, process control systems and fire alarms.

Vantex nickel cadmium cell batteries boast a robust construction and unique electrochemistry. These features ensure long life, reliability and low TCO (Total Cost of Ownership). The latest generation of Vantex nickel pocket-plate battery technology is ideal for replacing lead-acid batteries, thanks to its 1.39 V/cell single level charge. When a quick recharge is required, 95% State-of-Charge (SOC) in 8h can be reached 1.45 V/cell, ensuring minimum downtime and optimal availability. With performance this outstanding, it's little wonder global industry leaders rely on Vantex nickel cadmium cell solutions and Ni-Cd battery innovations.

Single-cell Ni-Cd battery comprehensive range

Alcad is also a trusted leader in the development and manufacturing of high-power, single-cell NiCad batteries, ranging from 9Ah to 1690 Ah. The Single Cell HC/HB Ni-Cd battery range is designed for high-current demand over shorter periods, such as those typical of UPS and starting application. For high-power NiCad batteries with outstanding performance and use for periods of around 30 minutes or below, Alcad's solutions are world leading.

Operating under a wide range of temperatures, the Single Cell LCE / LB makes it the one of choice for many applications requiring a reliable source of energy over long discharge periods. Otherwise if your applications require sustained electrical loads for between 30 minutes to 3 hours with variable discharge rates, you can choose the Single Cell MC/HB. It is perfect for switchgear and backup.

Benefits of single-cell Ni-Cd batteries include a long-life extending 20+ years, resistance to electrical abuse, shock and vibration, a low life-cycle cost, and operation over a wide range of temperatures.
