The PowerSafe nickel-cadmium (Ni-Cd) batteries are specifically designed to provide exceptionally long life at extreme temperatures. This coupled with the inherently low maintenance requirements make the PowerSafe Ni-Cd battery series an ideal choice for railroad, renewables, off-grid, telecommunications, and complex duty cycle applications.The robust design means an excellent resistance against electrical and mechanical stress, low risk of terminal degradation and a proven 20 year plus service life. This combination and extensive use in service make the PowerSafe Ni-Cd battery series the right choice for industrial applications requiring superior reliability and the highest safety integrity. The PowerSafe NiCd battery range includes the following models: RL, RM, RH, VGL, and VGM.
Nickel-Cadmium batteries are a type of rechargeable battery that uses nickel oxide hydroxide and metallic cadmium as electrodes. These types of batteries have a higher energy density compared to lead-acid batteries meaning that a smaller and lighter battery system is required to obtain the same power output as an equivalent lead-acid system.
