GNB Sonnenschein PBA

Exide’s Sonnenschein Solar Block is a 6V deep-cycle valve-regulated lead-acid (VRLA) gel battery. VRLA gel batteries are ubiquitous in stationary storage applications, and are the incumbent technology in the majority of RAPS systems. The Sonnenschein brand is a market leader in RAPS applications and their parent company, Exide Technologies, has been in the battery business for over 120 years.

For the purposes of the trial, 8 x SB 6/330 cells have been connected in series, to allow for total capacity of 300Ah at a nominal voltage of 48 V. The bank is connected to an SMA Sunny Island inverter which charges and discharges the battery.
