PowerSafe SBS batteries


 PowerSafe SBS standby power batteries utilise advanced pure lead, thin plate technology to achieve exceptionally high performance, energy density, reliability and a long, low maintenance service life in a wide range of applications and operating environments. The range includes both top and front terminal designs for easy installation and maintenance on racks, shelves and in cabinets. PowerSafe SBS combine the benefits of high performance and long life in a cost effective battery solution for tele-communications, UPS, electric utillities and engine starting applications. PowerSafe SBS batteries are manufactured in ISO 9001 certified factories 




  • Design Life 
High purity materials give SBS batteries a long float life. On constant voltage float charge systems the design life expectancy is 10+ years at 25°C/77°F and 15+ years at 20°C/68°F. 
  • Energy Density
The advanced thin plate pure lead technology promotes exceptionally efficient utilisation of the active materials. SBS energy density is typically 12 to 30 % higher than conventional lead calcium VRLA batteries.
  • Operating Temperature 
The recommended operating temperature range for optimum life and performance is 20°C/68°F to 25°C/77°F. However, SBS can be operated in the temperature range -40°C/-40°F to 50°C/122°F, and by using the optional metal jacket the maximum operating temperature of the SBS J types is increased to 80°C/176°F.
Operation at higher or lower temperature will effect battery life or performance respectively: Lower capacity Optimum life Shorter life and performance 
  • Transportation
 SBS products are classified as “nonspillable wet electric storage batteries” and may be shipped by air or ground transportation without restriction. 
The batteries, their shipping container and external packaging must be labelled “nonspillable” or “nonspillable battery”. 
SBS batteries are in compliance with: USA 49 Code of Federal Regulations section DOT 173.159 ICAO/IATA Packaging Instruction 806 and Special Provision A67 IMDG UN No 2800 Class 8 Exempt when securely packaged and protected against short circuts. 
Orientation The batteries can be installed in any orientation except upside down (vents on the bottom).
  • Terminal Position 
The SBS range comprises of both top and front terminal models, and JIS and unique SBS container sizes for maximum battery layout flexibility.
  • Low Gas Emission and Remote venting 
Under normal operating conditions, gas emission is virtually negligible. On SBS15-60, SBS J and front terminal models optional venting systems are available to vent gas outside the battery compartment. The remote venting system allow
