Best Stationary Batteries – Buying Guide

Stationary Batteries or stationary accumulators are a type of battery that is characterized by being distributed in several independent vessels. They offer the best quality and durability among all lead-acid battery technologies. We will have an energy bank prepared for solar energy in installations that are used on a regular basis. Remember that several units are necessary to make up a complete system.

Characteristics of Stationary Batteries

What is a stationary battery?

Stationary batteries are those that are kept permanently charged by a regulator, since the regulator feeds a consumption, so it is a battery that is discharged very infrequently and the regulator recharges it after discharge so that it is constantly perfectly charged, with this it is possible to compensate its internal self-discharge

What is an absorbed electrolyte battery? What about liquid electrolyte batteries?

The absorbed electrolyte battery, VRLA or OpzV Stationary Batteries are very similar in operation to the liquid electrolyte batteries where the OpzS Stationary Batteries and the TOPzS Stationary Batteries are found .

The main difference between absorbed electrolyte and liquid electrolyte batteries is that absorbed electrolyte batteries are maintenance-free, while liquid electrolyte batteries require that their internal levels of sulfuric acid be periodically checked and, if necessary, refilled. carefully so that the terminals do not become sulfated. In other words, OpzS Stationary Batteries and TOPzS Stationary Batteries require periodic maintenance, while OpzV Stationary Batteries are maintenance-free.

Stationary Batteries are ideal for daily consumption and are perfect for use in photovoltaic installations as they are characterized by a long useful life. Its deep discharge cycles offer remarkable results for any type of consumption. In addition, they have a high operating capacity in slow charge and discharge regimes.

Stationary Batteries are kept permanently charged through the use of a regulator. It is very important that the battery is discharged very infrequently, that the regulator is subsequently in charge of recharging it, after a discharge, and that it keep it charged and thus compensate its internal autonomy.

Advantages of Stationary Batteries

One of the main advantages of Stationary Batteries is the ease of replacing them in the event of a breakdown, as well as the large reserve capacity of their electrolyte, as they are capable of storing large amounts of energy and supply it at a constant power.

Stationary Batteries Warranty

The Stationary Batteries have a two-year manufacturer’s warranty from the time of purchase, provided that it has been used correctly and has been connected in series, since when connecting the battery in parallel, it loses the manufacturer’s warranty.

How to correctly choose Stationary Batteries?

Stationary batteries are chosen on many occasions based on the characteristics of the photovoltaic installation, or according to the final use. In the event that you want to purchase stationary batteries as accumulators in a solar installation, it is recommended that you take into account the compatibility between a battery and a solar panel , the compatibility between a battery and an inverter in a photovoltaic installation , as well as the level battery self – discharge .

Stationary Battery Maintenance

Stationary Batteries depending on the specific type of Stationary Batteries that are treated require, or not, maintenance. So that:

– The OpzS Stationary Batteries require that the levels of sulfuric acid inside be periodically checked and if it is not between the minimum and the maximum determined by the manufacturer, the container must be filled with said acid carefully so that it does not the terminals of the stationary battery are sulfurized .

– OpzV Stationary Batteries are the only type of stationary batteries that do not require maintenance and do not need to be filled with sulfuric acid, nor do they emit gases.

– TOPzS Stationary Batteries, as well as OpzS Stationary Batteries, also require maintenance and if their internal acid levels are not between the minimum and maximum determined by the manufacturer, the container must be carefully filled with sulfuric acid to that the terminals do not sulfide.

Location of Stationary Batteries

Just as depending on the type of stationary battery , maintenance may or may not be required, TOPzS Stationary Batteries and OpzS Stationary Batteries can emit gases, so it is recommended that they be installed in a place with ventilation.

While, the OpzV Stationary Batteries do not emit gases, so they can be installed in an indoor place without ventilation.

All stationary batteries , regardless of their type, must be protected from direct sunlight and high temperatures for their correct operation and durability.

Handling and transport of Stationary Batteries

To transport, install and place stationary batteries , it is recommended that you have the necessary equipment to avoid injuries.

Stationary batteries due to their weight and dimensions can be complex to place or transport by a single person.

Installation of Stationary Batteries

Stationary batteries can be installed by AutoSolar’s team of professional installers who travel to any point in Spain to carry out the installation and start-up with guaranteed operation of stationary batteries and any of the products on our website, contact us for more information.

How to connect Stationary Batteries

If you wish to install the stationary batteries , you must take into account the connection diagram for stationary batteries .

If you have any questions about what type of stationary battery is suitable for your installation or depending on the use you want to give it, contact us, at AutoSolar we have a department of professionals who will advise you without obligation on which option is recommended.
