Douglas Legacy® Arctic Battery provides superior performance in cold storage and freezer applications
The Douglas Legacy® Arctic Battery by EnerSys® delivers optimal voltage, capacity and service life in cold storage and freezer applications, while protecting against undercharging and de-rationing of capacity and charge acceptance. “The thick-plate, high-performance technology of the Legacy® battery has been integrated with an exclusive Arctic Electrolyte solution,” said Brian Faust, general manager for Douglas Battery. “The result is a durable, high-performance battery that significantly reduces the loss of capacity that is typical when batteries are used in cold storage and freezer applications, enabling the Douglas Legacy Arctic Battery to run up to 15 percent longer in low temperatures than a standard lift-truck battery.” The Douglas Legacy Arctic Battery also features the newly designed Thermal Tray Insulator, which enables effective capacity and voltage levels, as well as enhanced performance of outer cells, in cold-storage and freezer
environments. The five-fold plate insulations system provides further protection for a long and dependable service life. Other features include flip-top vent caps for easy watering and reduced dripping of electrolyte into cell covers; trays protected with electrostatic baked-on epoxy to withstand corrosion, reduce voltage tracking, short circuits and rust; and optional quick connect cables that reduce downtime and maintenance. The Douglas Legacy Platinum Charger or Douglas Legacy Titanium Charger are recommended for charging the Douglas Legacy Arctic Battery. The Douglas Legacy Titanium HF charger features the Arctic Charge Profile, which manages the charge cycle to protect the battery from undercharging in low temperatures.
