ADT introduces organic gel battery

July 2003 IT infrastructure

What do space shuttles, satellites, nuclear submarines and ADT alarm systems have in common? They all use unique 100% pure organic gel backup batteries.

ADT Security (South Africa) is probably the only security company in the world to use this advanced technology in its 7 A/hour range of batteries. ADT Security national procurement manager John Cave first came across the unique 100% gel technology battery when he was in Portugal - it was being used in an electronic wheelchair. Seeing the potential for security systems, extensive research led him to a supplier and he has now secured exclusive rights for the battery in Africa.

The 12 V, 7,8 A/h battery has another advantage in that it can be re-charged from zero volts, giving it a longer life. The new battery has been used on all new installations since October 2002 and all existing batteries will be phased out over time.
