Nickel-Cadmium (Ni-Cd) : Tel.X
Saft Tel.X Ni-Cd batteries are designed to ensure maximum reliability, extended performance and optimum TCO (total cost of ownership) for the new generation of decentralised telecom networks.

Main applications

  • remote terminals (for FTTX installations)
  • access networks
  • BTS (base transceiver stations) for wireless networks
  • cable networks
  • central offices

Tel.X is a high-energy, long-life, maintenance-free alternative to VRLA batteries that is ideally suited for demanding telecom network applications:

  • maintenance free, no topping-up required
  • high energy volume
  • easy installation
  • extremely reliable and long service life
  • compatible with existing telecom equipment

Capacity range

  • 72 Ah to 172 Ah
  • Example of battery name: TLX 150

Modular format
Tel.X is designed in a compact, modular format and averages 30 % less weight than a VRLA battery. It fits most existing compartments without modifications, enabling a fast, simple and direct replacement for VRLA with regard to space and charging requirements.

Tel.X for stationary applications
Thanks to its outstanding energy density of up to 100 Wh/l, Tel.X is the perfect direct replacement for VRLA batteries in stationary applications where limited space is available. Tel.X applications include supporting vital control and instrumentation systems in onshore and offshore oil & gas facilities for outdoor or indoor installations.
Tel.X is also ideally suited for railway signalling and infrastructure applications, for trackside signals, switches, crossing control signals and barriers and other equipment both to guarantee public safety and ensure the effective control of trains and other traffic on highway crossings.
