RS Components is now able to distribute attractively-priced FIAMM lead-acid batteries worldwide, having established a new direct agreement with the Italian manufacturer. The FIAMM range in stock now at RS comprises 23 models offering users a selection of 6V and 12V batteries, in a range of sizes and with capacity from 1.2Ah to 70Ah. Optimised for a discharge profile of 15 minutes to 20 hours, the batteries can provide backup power for systems such as emergency lighting, signalling, security alarms or UPS. They also perform well in small traction applications, marine uses, and renewable energy storage. The high-quality units are dependable, durable, and economical to own, with design life of up to five years with float charging and controlled ambient temperature. Valve Regulated Lead Acid (VRLA) and Absorbent Glass Mat (AGM) technologies, and 99% internal gas recombination, ensure safe, maintenance-free operation with no topping up required. The batteries are non-spillable, non-hazardous for transportation, and 100% recyclable, says the company.
