stringent international standards

End on Generation car

We manufacture the complete battery & all components in house!

Microtex produces the specially designed lead alloys, lead oxides, grid castings, pasted plates, injection molded containers, multi-tubular gauntlets, PVC separators in house, and produces the complete battery using state-of-the-art industry standard battery making machinery. Our batteries are built with proven designs and undergo complete life cycle testing to international norms before they are offered to the market. The electrical lab is complete with high quality LCT from world class suppliers Bitrode and Digatron.

Established in 1969

Microtex 8v 290Ah batteries
cranks your genset to life every time!

End on Generation cars have 2 Diesel Generator engines which use heavy duty 8v 290Ah Battery for starting the engines.  For over five decades, Microtex has been a technological leader in the development of high performance Industrial lead acid batteries, especially for Indian Railways.  Microtex continues its commitment to  research and development for improving 8v 290Ah batteries as per customer needs of railway power car battery with RDSO approved specifications.

Microtex 8v 290Ah battery -
high cranking currents & high sustained cranking currents

Exporting Batteries to 27 countries since 1977!

Specially designed and engineered for the railway industry, the Microtex 8v 290Ah Battery feature higher cranking currents and a higher reserve capacity to augment any extra power requirement of the genset, making it the choice of the rail industry. The cells are constructed to form 8 volt monoblocs, each cell is either hermetically heat sealed and housed in a Robust Hard Rubber Container designed specifically to avoid any leakage of electrolyte. Electrolyte leakage causes costly corrosion buildup and leakage currents which could damage the electronics in the Genset. The foolproof design ensures the 8v 290Ah Battery performs without any leakage throughout its service life. The balanced active materials inside the woven gauntlet positive tubular plate design and construction ensure higher capacity in the same space. Built to perform in the stringent requirements of the Genset, theseSpecial designer lead alloys, comprising of very low antimony selenium lead with special grain refiners added, to provide minimum water consumption, ensuring reduced water topping up frequency and making it easier to maintain. The woven engineered gauntlets, with precise porosity, do not rupture or burst in service and are superior to the non-woven gauntlets. The terminals are provided with tin-plated electrolytic grade copper inserts to withstand the heavy cranking currents & eliminate failures of terminal melting and provide better electrical conductivity & minimising internal electrical resistance.

8v 290Ah Battery have been serving the Indian railways since 1994 and are the trusted choice of the railways

A guide to maintaining your battery

Caring for your 8v 290Ah Battery

  • Overcharging damages cells: Try to use automatic chargers that switch off once the battery reaches its maximum charge.
  • If you don’t possess an auto-charger, set a charge time via alarm clock or other means to check the charging progression in incremental periods.
  • Check water levels each month: Level checks are particularly easy with Microtex batteries, as the vent plugs are fitted with visual indicator floats marked red & green
  • Always use demineralized water.
  • Regularly check for corrosion: Our battery terminals are coated for anti-corrosion properties, though, from time to time it may be necessary to clean the terminals 
  • Take preventative measures: A thin layer of petroleum jelly will protect your battery terminal from corrosion.

Dictating best practices for those who maintain 8v 290Ah Battery are one thing, implementing them are another. If you need any more information about batteries for the Railway industry (or Diesel Locomotive starter batteries) contact our team for personalized information and a custom quote.

Lead acid battery or lithium ion?

The perception in the public domain is that lead acid batteries are old technology. Lithium ion batteries has a different perception, it is modern, cleaner, it has 3 or 4 times the energy density and a longer cycle life. With all of this, what possible advantages could the 150-year old lead acid technology bring to the table?
