Heavy-Duty Battery and Cables
FTS uses a starved electrolyte heavy-duty battery. This 6 Cell, 12 Volt valve-regulated lead-acid battery powers all our fixed RAWS, and was chosen for its tolerance of extreme environmental conditions. It’s safe—it won’t explode if punctured, it won’t leak, and being a “gel-cell” there’s nothing to spill when being carried. It’s also environmentally friendly, as it’s 100% recyclable.
Our smart battery cable connects the battery to the Axiom datalogger, and offers nickel-plated battery terminals, a 15A ATO integrated blade fuse and a built-in temperature sensor for charge regulation. The 2.4m (8ft) cable includes current sensing and recharge connections.
