Tubular Gel RE Series

Features & Benefts


Long Cycle Life
Tubular positive plates and proprietary alloy
compositions to provide a 50% Depth of Discharge
cycle life of up to 2750 cycles @ 20C / 68F.
IEC 61427
Tested for compliance with the International
Electrical Commission requirements for battery
performance and life in PV applications.
Unparalleled Performance
Engineered to deliver 80% of rated capacity
above 1.9 volts.
Maintenance-Free
Sealed technology, Gel electrolyte and safety
pressure relief valve with integral fame arrestor.
Operational Safety
Tested and verifed for compliance to applicable
International Safety Standards.
Optimum Total Cost of Ownership (TCO)
Low cost per cycle. Lifetime value maximized
especially in hybrid systems where using batteries
can dramatically reduce generator run times
delivering lower maintenance and fuel costs and
less CO2 emissions.
Complete Battery Solution
Complete and ready to install systems with all
necessary installation accessories. Flame retardant
(UL 94-V0) containers available upon request.
Discover Tubular Gel RE Batteries provide superior deep cycling performance and reliability for demanding
commercial, industrial and residential applications. Discover Tubular Gel RE Batteries utilize Advanced Tubular
Plate Technology to deliver long service life with maintenance-free requirements. Gel RE Batteries provide reliable
energy storage for Stationary Backup and Telecom Networks, Road Surface, and Rail Traffc Signaling Systems,
Solar, Wind, and Hybrid Off-grid and Grid-Tie renewable energy applications. Discover Tubular Gel RE Batteries
provide maximum effciency per discharge-charge cycle, and proven reliability in remote, high temperature, or
unstable power network installations.
