RS Components (RS), the trading brand of Electrocomponents plc, a global multi-channel provider of industrial and electronic products and solutions, has introduced the new Duracell Procell range of high-performance alkaline batteries, designed to replace the Duracell Industrial range used by OEMs and professional end users around the world.
Procell professional industrial batteries offer higher capacity and greater longevity than Duracell’s previous industrial batteries of comparable size and format, resulting in fewer battery replacements and savings on associated operating costs.
The Procell range comprises alkaline–manganese dioxide batteries in five standard formats. The Procell PC1500 and PC2400 are 1.5V batteries in AA (LR6) and AAA (LR03) formats, respectively, suitable for industrial and professional remote control, sensor, security keypad and wireless mouse applications. The PC1400 and PC1300 are 1.5V batteries in C (LR14) and D (LR20) formats, respectively, for use in sensors, security keypads and flushometers. The PC1604 is a standard 9V (6LR61) battery for such applications as carbon monoxide detectors, smoke detectors, multimeters, medical devices and microphones.
Duracell uses its highest-quality cell designs, materials and processes to manufacture the Procell range, optimising battery capacity, longevity and corrosion resistance. The AA, AAA, C, D and 9V versions offer nominal capacities of 3016mAh, 1236mAh, 8100mAh, 15476mAh and 673mAh, respectively.
Procell batteries are tested to stringent quality, reliability and environmental standards, incorporating applicable parts of IEC 60086-1, IEC 60086-2, IEC 60086-5, ANSI C 18.1M Part-2, and the EU Battery Directive. They can be used over a very wide operating temperature range from –20°C to +54°C.
The Duracell Procell range is shipping now from RS in the EMEA and Asia Pacific regions.
