Caring for your Signalling battery

  • Overcharging damages cells: Please ensure to use automatic chargers that switch off once the battery reaches its maximum charge
  • Check water levels every six months (although designed for yearly top up, it is a good idea to check this every 6 months): 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 railway signalling  batteries are one thing, implementing them are another. If you need any more information about batteries for the Railway industry (or TRD batteries) contact our team for personalized information and a custom quote.
