Raylite M-Solar Batteries - Flooded Lead Acid Cells
Raylite M-Solar deep cycle batteries are designed specifically for solar power installations and come as a complete 12 Volt set, including interconnecting straps and acid containers. Raylite M-Solar batteries are available from 600 to 1660 Amp Hour capacity (@100h) and come with a 3-year full and a 2-year pro-rata warranty.
A 12 Volt M-Solar battery bank consists of 6 individual 2 Volt cells that are placed in external plastic cases (hence additional battery tray is not required). They come in 3 cells to a case (up to 900Ah), or 2 cells to a case (from 1050Ah). The cells are filled with acid and are usually fully charged on delivery.
M-Solar batteries are capable of high cycling: ~3500 cycles to 20% Depth of Discharge (meaning your battery remains 80% full) and ~1500 cycles to 50% Depth of Discharge. The cells are optimised for operation in a stand alone solar system and provide a long discharge period while lowering the discharge rate. Like all flooded batteries, M-Solar batteries require frequent maintenance to achieve the above mentioned cycles.

The tubular plate construction incorporates lead alloy spines in complete contact with active material, which is retained by an outer gauntlet. This enables the electrolyte to penetrate freely, ensuring a high power output per unit volume.
Top up Level Indicator:
Two ribs on the separator guard serve both as level indicators, and to strengthen the guard.
The negative plate is of a highly porous paste on a lead alloy grid. This complements the positive plate construction, providing a balanced performance and superior life.
Separators are manufactured from microporous polyethylene and have a generous overlap to reduce the risk of short circuit. They are impervious to acid attack.
Prevents possible shorting between plates due to active material shedding during the life of the cell.
Container and Lid:
The lid is heat-sealed to the container ensuring an excellent bond. This is vital to mechanical strength and safety.
Perfect Seal® Bolt-On Connector
Injection moulded connector head
The bolt-on connector facilitates easy cell replacement. Acid resistant, totally enclosed terminal post, maximum safety. Orifice for voltage readings.
Stainless Steel Bolt
Threaded Brass Insert
Maximises terminal connector conductivity.
A polypropylene pressure bushing seated on a rubber "O" ring, locked in place by a poly carbonate ring. The cell lid is welded to the container, and polypropylene is injection moulded into the post to lid cavity. This design eliminates acid leaks through the post assembly.
