What sets our Railway Signaling battery apart from the rest?

Microtex have been manufacturing & exporting batteries from 1977. Not many battery companies can make that claim. 50 years of manufacturing experience puts our Microtex railway signaling battery as one of the top railway battery suppliers.

Our signaling battery is designed for long-duration float applications with deep-discharge performance. Manufactured with very low antimony alloys, they require very less water topping-up. A boon for the railway signaling battery user. Available in the complete RDSO approved range in LMLA & VRLA 2v cells from 40Ah to 500Ah meeting & exceeding RDSO specifications. With a Microtex railway signalling battery, you get:

Trouble-free performance
Reduced water topping-up needs, up to 18 months!
Faster charge acceptance with nano-carbons!
High power efficiency – recovers from PSoC quickly
Longer discharge period – heavy-duty, coupled with deep-cycle capabilities
Long-life – better return on investment

Railway Signaling Battery available from ready stocks!

RDSO specifications

Microtex railway signaling batteries are tested by RDSO & conform to

  • RDSO Spec IRS/S:93/96 Amdt 1 and IRS S-88/2004

Superior design

  • Designer lead alloys with low antimony for positive plates & negative plates to prevent failures due to corrosion
  • Low antimony reduces the need to top up more frequently
  • Correctly balanced active materials ensure enhanced energy densities that provide long life & trouble-free performance
  • 150 bar high-pressure die-cast spine grids for tubular positive plates (densely compacted under such high pressures prevent early corrosion failures)
  • Tubular plates – not flat plates!
  • Superior WOVEN tubular gauntlets (not Nonwovens) for tubular plates
  • Woven tubular gauntlets will not rupture in service and active material will not leak causing internal shorts & failure
  • Sturdy PPCP (polypropylene copolymer) for durability
  • Factory fresh charged batteries. No fuss no mess, use straight away

Requirements for railway signaling battery

Microtex railway signaling battery offers 3 of the most important requirements for you :

Reliability – Signaling batteries cater to an important function in the railways – safety. There can be no scope for error or failure of the signaling system. When there is a power outage, Microtex signal batteries seamlessly supply continuous power to signaling equipment. This is a no-compromise requirement & met by Microtex with decades of experience & understanding of railway requirements. For this, quality control at each stage of signal battery manufacture and final safety checks are essential. Microtex takes this responsibility very seriously and under their ISO 9000 accreditation, ensure that every manufacturing stage and every component is checked for electrical, chemical and physical properties. The final product railway signaling battery is 100% tested for both performance and safety.

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

Operation – Microtex railway signaling batteries are designed with enough capacity over their lifetime. This ensures operational requirements over years of use. Minimum antimony alloy ensures that the cells require very less topping up compared to any battery in the railways. You have savings in maintenance costs. This is also invaluable in remote hilly locations where frequent maintenance is difficult. Microtex tubular batteries recover from PSoC deep discharges efficiently. Built strong & built rugged for the railways.

Safety concerns

Safety – Being a safety item & a critical requirement of the Indian railways, Microtex railway signaling battery have been designed with enough capacity to ensure that it will deliver power smoothly over the years when the need arises
