Whitepaper: Auxiliary batteries for railway equipment
Saft explains how rail operators rely on their onboard auxiliary batteries to ensure high levels of reliability, robustness and safety.
This whitepaper explains how rail operators rely on their on board auxiliary batteries to ensure high levels of reliability, robustness and safety. It outlines the various applications for batteries such as engine starting, critical system backup, and emergency lighting, ventilation and door control.
It then explores some of the key questions to consider when specifying a rail battery:
- How do you achieve the optimum balance of performance, reliability and lifetime costs?
- What does a battery cost?
- Why are nickel-cadmium (Ni-Cd) batteries growing in popularity over traditional lead-acid batteries?
