Nickel-Cadmium (Ni-Cd) : SCLP, SCM – Single cells
Saft SCLP and SCM single Ni-Cd cells are designed for a wide variety of industrial stationary applications.

Main applications

  • switch tripping
  • emergency and security systems
  • DC instrumentation


  • trouble-free long service life of 20 years or more
  • low overall cost
  • reliability, no risk of sudden death or thermal runaway
  • low maintenance thanks to large electrolyte reserve
  • mechanical and electrical resistance

Capacity range
10 Ah to 70 Ah
Examples of battery name: SCL 70 P, SCM 59

The battery is composed of modular pocket plate cells in translucent polypropylene containers.

The range
Consists of:

  • SCL P cells designed for long discharge periods, typically 2 hours and longer.
  • SCM cells designed for medium discharge periods between 30 minutes and 3 hours

Plate technology
Pocket plates: the positive and negative electrodes consist of rectangular perforated steel pockets – a strong plate construction.
