U-Charge® lithium iron magnesium phosphate intelligent battery systems provide highly economic and reliable sea faring.
Marine yacht and motor cruiser manufacturers are choosing Valence Lithium Iron Magnesium Phosphate (LiFeMgPO4) to enable drive, house pack and navigation equipment.
Valence is responding to demand in the marine sector for:
- Decreased emissions
- Reduced noise
- Less pollution
- Increased reliability
Valence power enables a drive system exceeding core requirements and ensuring significant benefits over traditional lead acid type batteries and other lithium chemistry.
Used on open waters marine drive systems need to be intrinsically reliable. Valence Lithium Iron Magnesium Phosphate offers a ‘fail-safe’ power source due to its excellent cycle life, depth of discharge rating and advanced command and control system capabilities.
Depending on the required power capacity, Valence Lithium Iron Phosphate house systems can power almost everything in your marine craft or remote facility from heat and lights, security systems, pumps, refrigeration, water heaters, air conditioning, television or IT systems.
This is particularly beneficial at sea as a 100% reliable power source with the added advantage of operation without the need to idle the vessels main engine at night-time.
U charge XP battery systems offer the added advantage of battery management systems that allow monitoring of house pack power using CANbus communications.
Valence use a modular approach for marine house power units allowing a scalable range for multiple vessel integration options.
Lithium Iron Magnesium Phosphate (LiFeMgPO4) technology has high power-to-weight and power-to-volume ratios with extended high power discharge and a common two hour recharge time. Safety was also key to the success of the innovative electric drive. Lithium Iron Magnesium Phosphate unlike other Lithium based technologies is not prone to thermal runaway. The unique combination of chemistry does not allow it to self-combust in the event that it is subjected to puncture or short circuiting.
