Sealed and opened Nickel-Cadmium Batteries. Hoppecke

The nickel-cadmium batteries have some of the highest operating ranges within the most demanding environments so the applications of these batteries are found in most industries. For example:

  • Heavy Duty Trucks
  • Guided Transport Systems
  • Electrical Buses
  • Switchgear
  • Telecommunications Systems
  • UPS
  • Power Generation Plants
  • Emergency lights
  • Diesel Engines Starting
  • Renewable Energy Systems
  • DC Systems in general


The special characteristics in the design of these batteries, define the necessity of their use, the ranges of temperatures that they support and their useful life makes them indispensable for certain industrial environments:

  • Operating temperature range: -50°C to 60°C
  • Period @ 1.40vpc water maintenance: 20 years in 20°C
  • Seal cover: welded, leak-proof
