Magellan Delivers Intelligent Battery Bank

Magellan Delivers Intelligent Battery Bank

The battery bank consists of 15 cells of 1200 Ah (expandable to 1600Ah) Lithium Iron Phosphate batteries complete with battery monitoring and communication facility.

The Lithium battery bank is to directly replace the existing 1100 Ah VRLA batteries without the need to change the existing charger.

The Lithium Iron Phosphate batteries were chosen for this application due to their many advantages over VRLA batteries. Lithium is less than a third of the weight, half the size, can work at a much higher temperature, has much longer shelf life, and can charge and discharge many more times than VRLA.

The above advantages make Lithium an ideal choice for many applications such as AC and DC UPS, Remote Area Power, Solar applications and Energy Storage.


The advanced battery monitoring system above was designed and made by Magellan Power.

Its task is to monitor each individual battery cell voltage, current and temperature, to balance the cell voltages in the bank, record all parameters and raise alarms if necessary.

The Battery Management System also protects against over charge and over discharge conditions by disconnecting the battery from the charger or the load.

In this application the high temperature capability of the Lithium battery as well as the OH&S advantages of Lithium was the driving factor for the choice.

Available at 24V, 48V, 110V and 240V banks the Lithium Iron Phosphate battery is an ideal replacement for VRLA and NiCad batteries.

Brookfield Rail’s Merredin office regularly sources power chargers from Magellan Power, and we always find it an easy process for new purchases and repairs. Their Sales & Repair Manager Shijo is prompt with responses to our queries, and on one occasion travelled to Merredin to meet with us, which we found extremely helpful.
