The sintered positive plates, compact plastic bonded negative plates and thin separators make the XHP a highly efficient battery that is smaller, lighter and often less costly in high rate applications than lead acid systems.
Other advantages of the XHP include:
- Extremely long life
- Reliable operation
- Fast recharge
- Narrow voltage window
- Low installation and maintenance costs
- Resistance to abuse

8 Ah -- 1700 Ah
Operating temperatures as high as +40°C
The Vantex design is based on the same robust construction and unique electrochemistry that has enabled Alcad Ni- Cd batteries to establish an unrivalled track record for reliability and long-life. But now, Vantex takes Ni-Cd design a stage further by delivering exceptional performance and low-maintenance requirements combined with a long service-life - even at operating temperatures as high as +40°C. Vantex is specially adapted for any stationary industrial backup power installation requiring a battery that ensures maximum reliability and optimum TCO (total cost of ownership) while operating for long periods at high ambient temperatures. Typical applications will include the utility and oil and gas industries.
Easy to use and easy to handle
Vantex is designed for ease of transportation, installation and operation. The cells are assembled in blocks of up to 6 cells to facilitate transportation, and are delivered ready-filled with electrolyte to make installation fast and simple. When filled, Vantex batteries can be stored for up to 2 years in normal conditions.
In addition to its extended service-life in high ambient temperatures, the key feature of Vantex is its high-technology low-maintenance pocket-plate construction. This ensures very efficient gas recombination, with very low gas emission, well in excess of the requirements of IEC 62259. As a result, a Vantex battery may require just one topping-up operation throughout its entire service-life.
Vantex offers very good chargeability, reaching over 95 per cent of its capacity in less than 15 hours using single-level low-voltage charging.
Wide range of capacities and exceptional reliability
Vantex is available in a wide range of capacities, from 8 to 1700 Ah, with a choice of L type plates - for relatively long discharge periods, or M type plates - to sustain loads from between 30 minutes to 3 hours.
Vantex offers exceptional reliability thanks to its robust Ni-Cd construction and engineered electrolyte. This ensures a long and predictable service life, and unlike the VRLA (valve regulated lead acid) batteries often found in stationary applications, Vantex cannot suffer from 'sudden death', even in extreme conditions.
Ultra Low Maintenance-Medium Rate
8 Ah -- 476 Ah
Ultra-high reliability, Ultra low maintenance.
Introducing second generation, ultra low maintenance Vantage…first in line when you need trouble-free reliability in stored power for the most exacting industrial and commercial applications. Alcad, one of the world leaders in nickel-cadmium batteries, brings together electromechanical technology and construction expertise to offer you the most cost effective power pack in the world today.
Vantage can continue to supply power for 20 years or more thanks to its corrosion-free construction and Alcad's tried and tested pocket plate technology. No physical plate degradation and no sudden death with resulting costly downtime.
Vantage, in common with all Ni-Cd batteries, does not require complex electrical maintenance. In addition, Vantage, with its ultra low maintenance recombination technology can give up to 20 years service without topping up.
Offshore oil and gas, emergency lighting, fire and security systems, railway signaling, process control, switchgear, telecoms, utilities, photovoltaics. You can depend upon Vantage for perfect peace of mind.
Vantage will survive treatment, which would destroy lead acid batteries. This battery can tolerate up to 15% AC ripple and can be over-discharged or reversed without damage. Prolonged abusive overcharge can easily be compensated by refurbishment with water.
More environmentally tolerant
Vantage performs in the most severe conditions and can operate over a temperature range from -10°C to +35°C. It can survive extremes of temperature from as low as -40°C to as high as +55°C.
Compact and lightweight, Vantage is easy to transport and install. It can be stored for one year without need of refresher charges.
You may be seeking an all-round better solution than Valve Regulated Lead Acid batteries with their limited life span. In elevated temperatures, their inability to cope with uncontrolled or harsh environmental/electrical conditions. Or you may already be enjoying the advantages of nickel-cadmium batteries but need to upgrade to ultra low maintenance.
Either way you need to know more about Vantage…derived from over 70 years of product experience, successfully operating in more than 50 countries and supported around the clock by a most committed, caring and responsive sales and service network.
