2v Battery – OPzV – TGel – VRLA


MICROTEX OPzV VRLA BATTERY: The Finest in OPzV Tubular Gel Battery Technology

Microtex Advanced Calcium OPzV batteries with high power density are available for Power Generation, Hydro-electric, Nuclear Stations, Solar, offshore rigs, petrochemical complexes in ABS containers from 100Ah to 3000Ah
Microtex has been manufacturing OPzV batteries since 2007 for various backup battery applications meeting European norms.
The OPzV batteries are designed for deep discharge and float long duration applications in the Solar, Telecom & Power industries. Our cells are manufactured using the best industry techniques, extensive testing, and highest quality components. The ABS plastic containers maintain their rigid properties at a wide range of temperatures from −20 to 55 °C (−4 to 131 °F). Tubular gel (or TGel) OPzV batteries have imported German vent valves and no opening for water levels to check. Being a sealed unit, there is no risk of acid spillage, and these types of batteries can be installed in any position or configuration. Recharging is performed much more efficiently due to the special design of the active materials for charge acceptance.
Our extensive catalogues of OPzV cells are specifically designed to provide outstanding performance in critical applications like offshore rigs, petrochemical complexes, telecom main switching centres, datacenters, large solar photovoltaic grids, switchgear and a variety of working environments. At Microtex, we offer a truly deep cycle OPzV  battery for the discerning user. Our batteries are designed to accept charge efficiently, and provide deep discharge capabilities while remaining maintenance-free.
Microtex offers Advanced Calcium-OPzV cells: An OPzV series, with capacities ranging from 100Ah to 3000Ah. All our battery cells are manufactured using state of the art components for reduced maintenance and extended battery life.
We manufacture the entire battery in our state-of-the-art manufacturing plant in Bengaluru, India. We manufacture the Lead alloys, battery containers, Grid Castings, Oxides, Woven Gauntlets, Tubular plates, negative pasted plates, separators and this is a very unique battery plant having complete control on all the components being manufactured in house – gives us the edge on quality as we don’t have to depend on outside suppliers for quality products.

What are OPzV Batteries?
OPzV batteries are deep cycle batteries and generally refer to Sealed Maintenance Free Tubular Gel lead Acid Batteries in ABS containers. These batteries have a cell voltage of  2 volts and are connected together to obtain required voltages, usually used as a backup source in, Solar Battery applications, Power Generating Stations & Substation, Oil & Gas, Nuclear, Hydro & Thermal Power Generation Facilities, and Standby applications. The electrolyte is in gelled form and the battery does not leak.

MICROTEX Calcium Tin OPzV BATTERY: The Superior OPzV  Battery Manufacturer

They have a high capacity density  and are designed for cyclic applications
Have a fast recharging capability
Built with high porosity woven tubular plates they are very robust and highly suited for deep cycling
The gelled electrolyte has the advantage of no acid stratification and no failures due to partial state of charge (PSoC)
The containers and covers are made from high impact ABS which do not bulge in service removing the need for a steel module housing. The cells can be placed on racks in any orientation. They can be offered in FR Grade as optional.
The lead alloys are special alloys of Tin-Calcium with special grain refiners to minimise grid corrosion
The grids are casted at 150 bar pressure, ensuring high compaction of lead, making it robust & strong.
Hardened lead alloys are used for the terminal posts to ensure better conductivity and fail proof connections
The terminal bushings have a special sliding mechanism with rubber rings to stop acid creep which causes corrosion and also allows for growth of the group inside
This ensure the cover will not crack during its life
The OPzV battery is designed to have a robust performance of 20 years on float at 20’c
The batteries can be supplied with seismic qualification and is ideally suited for mission critical applications in earthquake prone zones
Very low Total Cost of Ownership – saves you time and money.

Packed with Features: MICROTEX – OPzV Battery 

  • Specially designed Lead Tin Calcium alloys current carrying grids, provides better conductivity to the terminals with lower internal resistance. Presence of Tin and special grain refiners ensure a high performance plate resistant to grid corrosion.
  • The special Tin alloys prevent water loss and helps in recombination allowing the water to be converted back during the battery reactions providing a maintenance free operation.

  • High energy density with accurate and optimum balanced active materials, provide consistent capacity reliably.

  • Tubular Spine grids with a robust diameter of 3.20 mm cast at over 150 bar pressure in automatic high Pressure Die casting machines for positive plates, ensures the lead is packed with high density which resists acid corrosion – ensures the life of 20 years in the positive plates 

  • Designer Vent valves open and close at precise pressures and does not allow any water loss

  • High impact ABS container & cover (can be offered in FR Garde as optional) with large polarity indication enhances cell safety and easy visual of terminal polarity

  • Hardened lead alloy with copper insert terminal posts – provide faster conductivity and fail proof connections requiring less maintenance

  • Patent applied for, Smart Terminal pole bushing with rubber grommets, stops acid creep and corrosion and allows for movement upwards due to the natural growth of positive terminal which usually occurs after the 7th year of service, ensuring no breakage of cover in its designed service life.

  • Batteries are supplied with factory pre formed plates. This ensure for reliable performance and no excess cycling required in the field to obtain rated capacity. Saves time for critical users.

  • Batteries if required can be supplied with Seismic qualified stands with special acid proof coating.

  • Microtex OPzV Batteries generally conform to DIN 40 736 part 1, IS1651-1993, Tests according to IEC 60 896-11 and safety standards, ventilation DIN EN 50 272-2

  • Microtex is an ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 certified company.​​
