Rethium R-POWER is an innovative Lithium-ion railroad battery designed to replace traditional lead acid batteries. The R-Power is designed to meet the tough environment inside the railroad locomotive. The Railway coach battery system for train lighting is designed to withstand the vibrations and heat generated as the train speeds along the track and faces the cold and the heat from different parts across India. Present day lead acid locomotive batteries weigh thousands of kilograms. Whereas R-Power has significantly smaller overall dimensions and weighs 60% less than a lead acid battery.
With an onboard Battery Management System (BMS) with a custom software developed in-house, R-Power offers one of the most modern batteries with the best service life in the industry. The BMS allows the battery cell to perform within the given limits and keeps the cells balanced at all times. It also monitors cell temperature to offer maximum service life to the battery pack.
Rethium has supplied the batteries to Metros and Railways for Track Inspection Vehicles (TIV) application through vehicle OEMs. Below is the photo for your reference.
