This flooded battery incorporates proven and reliable floating epoxy post seal design and features solid copper posts to improve short duration (less that 5 hrs) rates up to 12% over comparable products. This combination makes the LCT II-1700 a superior, high quality, reliable, long-life battery for today’s standby applications. LCT II-1700 comes with a 25 year warranty: 5-year full and 20-year pro-rata.

C&D LCT II-1700 Lead Calcium Battery Features 

  • Proprietary design results in 12% increase in performance in short duration (< 5 hrs), high rate applications
  • Unique Floating Epoxy Post Seal construction provides leak-free operation throughout the product life
  • 30% greater jar-to-cover seal area reduces leaks for trouble-free operation
  • Proprietary vacuum-assisted, bottom pour, positive-grid casting assures void free grid quality resulting in long service life
  • Waterbath charging results in consistently formed plates for reliable performance out of the box (no cycling required in the field)
  • Proprietary expander enables stable and uniform float voltages (down to 2.17 Vpc), reducing the need to equalize
  • Suspended positive plate permits free growth without pressure on jar and cover
  • Flame-retardant covers enhance battery plant safety with self-extinguishing properties LOI >32%, UL 94V-0
  • Low-evaporation, flame-arrester vent to extend watering intervals and prevent external sparks from reacting with the hydrogen inside the cell
  • NEBS approved battery systems (cells and racks) that meet telecom companies’ specifications
  • Narrow 17” (43.18 cm) depth racks available – NEBS qualified
  • Transparent container allows visual inspection of plates
  • No requirement for periodic specific gravity readings
  • 50% reduction in the quantity of posts for reduced installation and maintenance costs
  • Double-hole, cross-drilled posts for plates parallel or perpendicular to the rack installation
  • Lead-plated solid copper posts for low maintenance; bolt-on connections require minimal retorquing
  • Redundant connectors standard for continuous operation for increased up-time and maintainability
