Element® SLS Locomotive Starting

The Element® SLS utilizes proven Absolyte® VRLA technology to create the industry’s first low-maintenance railway diesel starting battery. The batteries are non-spillable, thus eliminating damage to equipment and greatly reducing environmental concerns and increasing personnel safety.

Features & Benefits

railway power
  1. Low Maintenance

    Since the cells never need watering, the only maintenance required is proper charging and periodic inspection.

  2. Vibration Resistance

    Epoxy coating on connector bolts provides vibration resistance to intercell connections. With this design, cell replacement is safe and can be accomplished without tray removal.

  3. Horizontal Orientation

    The cells are placed in a horizontal orientation in a partitioned steel tray that permits easy cell removal during battery service.
