Requirements for railway EoG in trains battery

Microtex railway EoG in trains battery offers 3 of the most important requirements for you:

ReliableEoG in trains battery caters to an important function in the EoG in trains power cars- dependability. There can be no scope for a Genset starter battery failure to start the Genset when needed

Ease of installation – Microtex EoG battery is designed with simplicity & ease of use. User end railway satisfaction is the prime key to its product success. The Microtex EoG battery is designed in such a way that is meant to be easy to handle & install

Operation – Microtex EoG in trains battery is designed with enough capacity over its lifetime. This ensures operational requirements over trouble-free years of use. Very low antimony alloy coupled with tubular plates ensures that the cells require very less topping up compared to any Genset battery in the railways. Microtex EoG in trains battery will start your power car Genset each & every time without fail!

Genset manufacturers want trouble-free EoG Battery, for genset starting!

A Genset is usually powered by heavy-duty diesel engines that need to be cranked to fire up & start the diesel engine. Microtex 8v 290Ah battery connected together to obtain a 24v 290Ah configuration has a very high cranking capability. The EoG power car has diesel Gensets that are connected to 3 numbers 8v 290Ah Battery. The battery supplies the initial cranking current to start the Genset.
