To withstand the abuse of deep discharge, cycling applications such as APUs and HVAC systems, Trojan incorporates proprietary characteristics into the design of its OverDrive AGM 31 deep-cycle battery. The Trojan OverDrive AGM 31 features a plate construction thicker than that used in a starting and dual purpose battery. The thicker section of active materials makes the plate more robust and more resistant to the stresses encountered during deep discharge cycling. The thicker plate allows the grid to be manufactured with a larger cross-sectional area that can better withstand the corrosion that takes place in every battery. These enhancements result in a plate that is capable of providing a much longer life than a typical starting or dual-purpose battery under the severe conditions of deep discharge operations.
New commercial battery excels in cranking, deep cycling performance.
