Why Microtex OPzS Batteries?
German Designs - Made for Indian conditions
Microtex batteries are designed by Dr Wieland Rusch a leading battery scientist & inventor of the copper stretch metal submarine battery design.
Comparable to any leading international brands of batteries – our designs match with the best in the world.
Established in 1969, Microtex is known for its legendary quality
Microtex batteries are known the world over for its dependable & reliable battery performance
Unlike competitors, Microtex makes the complete battery & all its components in house
Microtex produces in house, the specially designed lead alloys, lead oxides, grid castings, pasted plates, injection-moulded containers, multi-tubular gauntlets (PT Bags), PVC separators and produces the complete battery using state of the art industry standard battery making machinery.
What are OPzS battery?
These are 2V standby battery power storage units. They are lead-acid tubular flooded batteries housed in transparent SAN containers. Required to be transparent for mission-critical applications where the condition of the cell’s electrodes can be inspected visually. These batteries have a cell voltage of 2 volts & are connected together to obtain higher voltages. Microtex batteries with high power density are available for Power Generation, Hydroelectricity, Nuclear Power Stations, Solar Energy, Offshore oil rigs, and Petrochemical complexes in transparent SAN containers from 100Ah to 3000Ah. OPzS vs AGM – While OPzS is tubular plate technology, AGM uses flat plate technology.
OPzS vs OPzV: Both use tubular plate technology. OPzS is a vented flooded battery requiring very less maintenance. OPzV is a sealed maintenance-free valve-regulated battery.

OPzS/TBS tubular plate battery in transparent container
Main advantages of modern technology OPzS/TBS Tubular batteries over expensive & outdated Plante battery type
|Plante Battery||Microtex OPzS Tubular plate battery||Remarks|
|Heavy grid & thin layer of active material on surface of grid||Tubular spine grid. Spines made at incredibly high hydraulic pressures up to 150 Bar. The active material is packed in a tubular bag||Active material during cycling in Plante battery will shed down. Whereas in Tubular plate OPzS, the active material will hold in the tubular bag.|
|Cover bulging & cover cracks during life due to normal positive plate growth||Special terminal bush design will allow the positive terminal pole to travel up to 12mm & keeps 100% seal against acid & gases||No failure due to plate growth in service life in Microtex OPzS batteries|
|Average cycle life||High cycle life||Life cycles 75% C4 (IEC)|
|Footprint 90% more than Microtex OPzS||Weight is less than Plante battery||The life cycle does not justify the high cost|
|Popular in use before 1960's||Microtex is having experience in making tubular batteries for 52 years||Tubular plate battery technology has taken over the redundant plante battery from 1960 onwards & proven worldwide|
|Oldest conventional design||Microtex uses latest appropriate European designs with modifications for hot tropical climates like in India||Gives excellent performance in service|
|Plante battery plate processing is critical & produces lot of effluents||Plate processing is not critical as plante & produces lot less effluents||Microtex OPzS batteries are produced in an environment friendly factory|
2V OPzS is the most popular battery worldwide in the power sector
