Fused Iron Batteries
The Fused Iron Battery was created to address more sophisticated and demanding power needs, especially the specifications required for major micro grid energy storage applications, off-grid energy storage needs, capital deferment projects, and telecom. By applying 21st century technology to Thomas Edison’s original, long lived and high cycling nickel iron battery, Encell has created to world’s most durable and longest cycling battery.
The Encell Fused Iron Battery has the capability of doing over 15,000 full 100% DoD cycles enabling the lowest levelized cost of storage (LCOS) in the market. The extended deep-discharge performance results in a dramatic reduction in the number of batteries needed without compromising battery life. With a float charge battery life of over 20 years and no capacity fade for the first 75% of total cycle life, the Encell Fused Iron Battery is estimated to cost up to one-tenth the price per kilowatt hour on a LCOS basis in comparison to a lead acid battery with similar name plate capacity. The LCOS advantage is even more pronounced versus Li Ion batteries.
Currently, the Encell Fused Iron Technology Battery is available in two cell designs a TC3 125 Ah and MG3 330 Ah. Temperature ranges for both operation and storage is (-30°C to 60°C).
