rail | power VR

The rail | power VR is a patented technology based on mesh electrodes with a fleece separator. The electrodes use tried-and-tested lead-calcium technology. The electrolyte contains gel additives (ESS technology) and is suspended in the fleece separator. As a result, this technology not only offers the benefits of a fleece battery, but also those of a gel battery. The batteries are installed in housings made of stable polypropylene or ABS. rail | power VR batteries work reliably as on-board batteries in all railway vehicles. They are also used as starter batteries in diesel vehicles.

The batteries are installed in stable plastic housings. They are resistant to shocks and vibrations that are well above the relevant requirements for railway batteries.
