Trojan Battery Introduces Single-Point Watering System For Its Flooded Batteries

Maintenance of Trojan's deep-cycle flooded batteries is now faster, easier and safer.

SANTA FE SPRINGS, Calif., March 20, 2013 -- Trojan Battery Co., the world's

leading manufacturer of deep-cycle batteries, has launched a single-point
battery watering system for its line of flooded batteries for renewable
energy and backup power applications. The new watering system makes
maintenance of Trojan's deep-cycle flooded batteries faster, easier and
safer.

Trojan's single-point watering kit is designed to take the guess work and
mess out of properly watering flooded batteries. The flexible tube routing
allows the watering system to work with various battery bank sizes and
configurations. It also features an automatic valve shut-off to control the
electrolyte level within each cell which prevents overwatering. In
addition, the kit enables users to fill their deep-cycle batteries without
having to remove the vent covers, an important safety feature which reduces
the chance for contact with the battery's electrolyte.

"Proper maintenance and periodic watering are important factors in
maximizing the performance and life of Trojan deep-cycle, flooded
batteries," said Bryan Godber, senior vice president for renewable energy at
Trojan Battery. "With Trojan's new single-point watering kit, precise
battery watering is made easy and can fill a set of batteries in 30 seconds,
saving valuable time and money."

The single-point watering kit comes in three configurations to fit 12V, 24V
and 48V battery models. The kits are designed for single string
installations with Trojan Premium, Industrial and Signature lines of flooded
batteries. For systems with multiple strings in parallel, additional kits
can be added at the required system voltage.

Easy monitoring with weather sensors from Lufft

Easy monitoring with weather sensors from Lufft

Professional weather sensors form the heart of large solar plants supporting their operation and performance. Lufft was the first manufacturer to combine several sensors in one housing, bringing the largest multiparameter weather sensor family with 19 members into being. Many of them are well-suited for solar site assessment and continuous monitoring. The most commonly used one is the WS600 delivering data on temperature, air pressure, wind, relative humidity and precipitation. Through its open protocol, it can easily be attached to radiation sensors e.g. from Kipp&Zonen. Other models have an integrated Silicon, Second Class or Secondary Standard radiation sensor.
