Battery Compliance Statement

  • The Auscell range of batteries are approved and fully comply to Australian standards. All approvals under TS-001 are met which include:
    • AS 4428.5-1998               Fire detection, warning, control and intercom systems – control and indicating equipment, Part 5: Power supply units
    • AS/NZS 4029.2:2000      Stationary batteries-lead acid, Part 2: Valve regulated type (IEC 60896-2: 1995, MOD)
    • AS ISO/IEC 17025-1999 General requirements for the competence of testing and calibration laboratories
  • The deep cycle “DC” sealed lead acid range from DC12-33 to DC12-120 is an AGM battery with GEL electrolyte, so can be referred to as an AGM hybrid battery. This technologically advanced battery was developed in 2015 and is superior for the following reasons:
    • The electrolyte in the AGM hybrid battery is half gel and half liquid, rather than full liquid as it is in an AGM battery – this has the benefit of less corrosion to the AGM glass plates in the battery, providing more protection to the plates. This also results in less water loss within the battery, extending the service life of the battery.
    • The electrolyte in an AGM battery tends to be stratified under gravitation influence later in its service life, whereas the electrolyte in the AGM hybrid battery is more stable and protects the electrolyte from stratification.
    • The gel materials in the AGM hybrid battery have better resistance to extreme ambient temperature (high or low), which also extends the service life of the battery.
    • The combined factors of the 3 points above can extend the cycle life of the AGM hybrid battery by up to 30%

The AGM hybrid battery only improves the performance of the battery, and will not detrimentally impact the technical performance of the equipment it is used for.
