DISCOVER DCM 12V 240AH AGM BATTERY
ABSORBED GLASS MAT BATTERY (AGM) • VALVE REGULATED LEAD ACID BATTERY (VRLA) • 12V MAINTENANCE FREE DRY CELL MARINE BATTERY • POLYPROPYLENE (PP) CASE
Reference No. DCM-4D
Discover DCM "EV" Traction batteries:
Discover® Dry Cell Traction Series provide superior high integrity and reliability for commercial, industrial and private applications. The maintenance-free, thick plate construction, designed for tough applications and repeated deep discharging makes the DCM Series the definitive choice for robust Traction applications including Home Medical Equipment (HME), Electric Vehicle, Automated Guided Vehicles (AGV), Aerial Lifts, Floor Cleaning Equipment, Robotics, Materials Handling, Renewable Energy and Marine / RV applications.
The design has seen improvements in the battery case, battery plates and intercell welding over traditional ABS case designs.
Most deep cycle VRLA batteries are constructed using an ABS case. Discover DCM "EV" Traction batteries use a PP (Polypropylene) case, which is the same material used to build automotive batteries, hence has superior mechanical, thermal and electrical properties along with it offers very good resistance to heat distortion and a high resistance to chemicals making it suitable for under the bonnet applications.

Features & Benefits:
-Advanced battery designs that exceed Original Equipment Manufacturer requirements.
-Enhanced alloy Traction heavy duty grids gives consistent active material adhesion and corrosion resistance for longer run time and extended service life.
-TTP welds (Through the Partition) for lower internal resistance and improved heat resistance with high impacted reinforced polypropylene (PP) cases with flat top design
-Improved vibration protection
-Superior charge acceptance
-Special grid alloy and paste formula for reduced self-discharge and extended runtime and cycle life performance
-Lighter weight due to use of PP cases and intercell welding
-Improved deep cycle plates
-Gas recombination technology for zero off gassing
-Stronger and more ergonomic moulded carry handles providing improved safety
-Improved safety by addition of Flame arrestors
*The photos above show the difference in construction between a standard AGM battery, where each cell is joined over the top of the cell partition, and Discover's AGM batteries, where each cell is joined through the cell partition, this is known as inter-cell welding. The benefits of inter-cell connections is that it uses less lead and decreases internal resistance, this means the battery can accept charge and discharge more quickly.
**Discover uses a PP (polypropylene) case which improves performance in high temperature environments and is vibration resistant, making it suitable for under bonnet and heavy duty applications.
