From local co-ops to national companies, utilities and other mission-critical applications need a power system that’s always ready for service. That’s why we offer a full suite of corrosion-resistant batteries, accessories and services, supported by our responsive, knowledgeable team.
SBS leads the way in battery test equipment with digital hydrometers, internal resistance testers, load testers, hydrogen detection and our new battery management and monitoring system: EquaLink.
SBS has been in the battery business for over 100 years.
EquaLink is a comprehensive battery management and monitoring system utilizing a patented balancing process. By regulating the float charging voltage of each battery cell, it can prevent unexpected battery failures: dry out due to overcharging or sulfation due to undercharging. The benefits are increased reliability and extended life by up to 25%. Other battery monitoring systems simply monitor the decline of the batteries.
Equalink monitors the voltage, internal resistance and temperature of each cell in a stationary battery system, providing data and graphs for NERC testing and reporting.
Extended battery warranty terms are available when EquaLink is used on SBS's battery systems.
The STT series batteries with tubular positive plates and lead selenium alloy provide the best corrosion resistance in lead acid battery technology today. Our lead selenium alloy virtually eliminates inter-granular corrosion, having all the advantages of lead calcium and lead antimony cells but none of the disadvantages. The positive plate's grid does not require horizontal bars, virtually eliminating plate growth. For long service life applications, tubular batteries provide the most reliable power.
