The new 2-volt additions are designed to make transport and installation of the batteries easier as well as offer more design flexibility for a variety of photovoltaic (PV) applications.

The new Industrial batteries include the IND27-2V model featuring a 1457Ah capacity at C20, and the IND33-2V version that offers a 1794 Ah capacity at C20.  The Industrial line is designed to support large daily loads where the batteries are cycled regularly in a range of PV systems including micro-grids, off-grid resorts, rural telecom applications and more.

To enhance safety, the new Industrial batteries also feature customizable terminal protectors which increase protection against shock or short circuiting and terminal corrosion. The protectors feature perforated cut-outs along the sides and top enabling them to be customized to fit the specific cable configuration required by customer.

Trojan’s Industrial line is specifically designed for deep-cycle use and optimized for deep discharge and recharge cycles characteristic of renewable energy systems. It is engineered for high-energy requirements delivering 1,500 cycles at 80 percent depth-of-discharge, and features advanced battery technologies that provide optimum performance.  The Industrial line features the following unique design elements.

The 2-volt cells of the new Industrial line additions are assembled in a rugged polypropylene housing designed to protect the internal plates from damage that may occur during transport and installation. The cells are enclosed in a larger polyethylene outer case that protects against damage caused by harsh environmental conditions such as moisture and dirt buildup, as well as safeguards against potential acid leaks. For added protection the thick-walled case features a lattice-design that reinforces the outer case’s structural integrity. This dual container construction provides added protection against extreme temperatures.

Engineered for high-energy requirements, the Industrial line features the following advanced battery technologies that provide optimum performance.

Trojan’s Alpha Plus Paste is a proprietary, high-density paste formulation precisely engineered to deliver outstanding battery performance. This high-density paste optimizes porosity development in the active material utilizing the active material more effectively resulting in sustained battery performance over a longer period of time. Trojan’s T2 Technology features a patent-pending T2 metal agent which is incorporated into Trojan’s Alpha Plus Paste further strengthening the electrochemical processing capabilities of the paste. Together the Alpha Plus Paste with T2 Technology increase both sustained capacity and total overall ampere-hours resulting in more operating power.

Combined with the innovative DuraGrid design, which provides a thick grid structure that resists corrosion, the Alpha Plus Paste with T2 technology increases overall battery life. The Industrial line’s low-profile grid configuration also optimizes current flow throughout the grid network and maximizes the amount of electrolyte that can be added resulting in longer intervals between watering.

Trojan’s Industrial batteries are engineered with a robust positive plate construction that enhances overall performance. Trojan’s DuraGrid technology combined with Alpha Plus paste securely locks the active materials to the grid creating an exceptionally strong positive plate. The Industrial line includes a five component wrapping and insulating system comprised of a stranded vertical slyver, which are filaments of glass wrapped around the positive plate’s active mass surface, a 20 mil backing bat and a secondary 20 mil horizontal compression mat. The entire mat is wrapped with edge-protecting Koroseal that is heat bonded as well as bonded to the plastic boot to protect the bottom of the plate and to keep the Koroseal in place.  The advanced plate construction protects against shedding and assures the electrochemical performance of the battery’s active materials.

Exclusively available in Trojan’s Industrial and Premium line batteries is the Maxguard XL separator. Featuring a wide-channel design, the Maxguard XL separator increases acid flow for optimum battery performance. Thirty percent thicker than our standard flooded battery separators, the Maxguard XL provides even greater resistance to stratification which is a typical mode of failure in batteries used in renewable energy systems.
