The 310-120 Series Rechargeable Batteries are non-spillable lead acid batteries. The unique construction and sealing techniques guarantee leakproof operation in any position with no adverse effect to capacity or service life. An electrolyte suspension system consisting of a high porosity, glass fiber material in conjunction with plates, totally absorbs and contains the electrolyte.
The 310-120 series batteries have an expected life span of 3 to 5 years in float service applications. More that 1000 discharge/recharge cycles can be realized, dependent on the average depth of discharge. They have been designed to withstand occasional over discharge. While it is not recommended, 310-120 Series batteries can recover their full capacity under normal charging conditions, even when they have been subjected to extreme over discharge.
In normal float service, the gases generated inside the battery are continually recombined, and return to the water content of the electrolyte. Therefore, electrical capacity is not lost due to "drying up" of the electrolyte. Actually, through the gradual and very slow corrosion of the electrodes, the battery will eventually lose capacity and come to the end of service life. It should be noted that the corrosive process will be accelerated by high ambient operating temperatures and/or high charging voltage.
The 310-120 series batteries can be operated in parallel for applications requiring more power. For custom power requirements, factory engineers can design a charging system that may include large capacity storage batteries.
