Rugged battery cabinets

New range of rugged battery cabinets


A new range of battery cabinets has been released by power provisioning specialist, Powermode. The locally-manufactured units are marketed under the Q-on banner and are suitable for applications ranging from solar PV to uninterruptible power supply (UPS) and self-consumption systems.

According to Jack Ward, MD of Powermode, the safe storage of batteries is important from a safety as well as space-saving perspectives. "General hazards related to energy storage include chemical leakage and fire dangers as well as the possible escape of non-flammable gases when charging or discharging certain batteries."

He says the Q-on cabinets, which are manufactured from rugged, durable steel to the highest standards and come with a class-leading quality guarantee, are available in four standard sizes (A8, A12, A16, A20) to suit a wide range of stand-alone or mobile requirements.

The compact, space-saving cabinets feature multiple, removable shelves, and come with a built-in battery switch breaker for battery isolation.
