Why Microtex DG Battery?
Generators have become ubiquitous in our everyday life & necessity in every business sector, be it hospitals, banks, offices, remote locations & residential apartments.
Generators require a high cranking current. Microtex DG batteries are capable of multiple cranks in excess of its requirement due to excellent capacity. Manufactured using state-of-the-art machines, with special calcium-tin alloys, it comes with a reliable performance & is maintenance-free.
Available in the two most popular capacities 12v 90Ah & 12v 200Ah. Microtex is India’s leading Genset battery manufacturer.

What is a Genset battery?
A diesel generator needs to be cranked instantly when the power fails. Most generators located remotely have a built-in automatic mains failure & need to be automatically started immediately. The Genset needs a reliable DG battery to provide the high currents required for cranking the diesel engine. Genset batteries are built differently with a special chemical formulation in the active materials to provide for superior cranking currents to provide for a failsafe starting of the diesel engine.
What is the difference between automotive batteries & Genset batteries?
The major difference is the design of the battery plates. The DG battery has a more robust plate construction to meet the demanding cranking power required to start the heavy load of a large diesel generator’s engine. Automotive batteries will possibly do the same task of starting the engine, but will not have the same life.
How to calculate battery capacity for DG set?
Please see the chart below for the correct rating of the battery for your genset.
|Generator KVA Rating||Battery Type||No of Batteries|
|up to 25kVA||12v 90Ah||1|
|30 to 140kVA||12v 105Ah||1|
|160 to 400kVA||12v 150Ah||2|
|500 to 700kVA||12v 180Ah||2|
|750 to 1500kVA||12v 180Ah||4|
|1800 to 2250kVA||12v 180Ah||8|
|2750 to 3750||12v 200Ah||8|
Flat plate battery Difference between flat plate battery & tubular battery The life of a flat plate battery is lower when compared to a tubular battery. Flat plate battery can easily shed their active material over time. The lead wires in the flat plate electrode are more easily attacked by the acid over time causing
Lead acid battery chemical reaction Working principles of & reactions of a lead-acid battery All Batteries are electrochemical systems which function as a source of electrical power and energy. Each system has 2 electrodes (Positive and Negative), electrolyte and separator. Most electrochemical systems have a metal oxide or oxygen itself as Positive and a metal as
