Dimension & Electrical Data


These batteries use Fibre Plate electrodes. The three Dimensional Fibre Structure in the plate provides a very high conducting density. The advantages of this technology is its low internal resistance, high rates of discharge, improved recharge capability and lower weight with a high cycle life.

The Ni-Cad Fibre Plate batteries are designed as L,M,H and X types to suit customers requirements.

These batteries conform to IEC 60623 and are certified by CSA International. They also conform to BS6260, DIN 40771 and other International Standards.


  • Consistent Voltage Output and stable Capacity over life time
  • Long service life and reliable operation
  • Can be used in extreme temperature zones
  • Ease of recharging the battery
  • Ease of handling due to light weight
  • Low maintenance and low water consumption
  • Excellent for cyclic applications
