Powerbloc, powerbloc dry and Hawker XFC are ranges of bloc batteries for all applications in small traction, from cleaning machines to pallet trucks, industrial electric vehicles etc. as well as some domestic applications like wheelchairs, golf carts, etc. Powerbloc are flooded batteries when powerbloc dry and Hawker XFC are gas recombination batteries. These ranges can be recharged with 50 Hz (except Hawker XFC) or HF chargers.
Operation - To achieve optimal operating life avoid deep discharges. Never leave the battery in a discharged state. Electrolyte level for flooded batteries has to be checked regularly and then filled with demineralized water (DIN43530-4) filled up to max. level mark. The single point automatic watering system can be considered on some types. Valve regulated batteries with absorbed electrolyte (AGM) or gel electrolyte are sealed for life and need no watering
Installation - Battery monoblocs should be installed in accordance with the instructions from vehicles/trucks manufacturers (observe connection polarity, and mechanically robust installation). While operating on battery connections avoid short circuits.
Storage - If batteries have to be stored out of service for a long time, they must be kept fully charged in a dry, clean and frost free zone. A monthly refreshing charge avoids any harmful deep discharge and damage to the battery. (except for Hawker® XFCTM range which should be refresh charged every 12 months)
Maintenance - Keep batteries clean and dry to avoid current leakage. Clean the monoblocs with a damp cotton rag. Never use any organic solution. Operation and maintenance instructions for each product range should always be observed.
The MFP consists of grid plates in special alloy with gel electrolyte.
• Totally maintenance free due to electrolyte immobilized in a gel.
• Very high aptitude for high current, reduced self-discharge and resilient to temperature variations.
• For applications in medium cycling duty.
