Red Flash™

Deep Cycle Batteries for Marine, Specialist Vehicles, Recreational Vehicles, Solar/Wind Energy

Red Flash™ Deep Cycle Batteries, using Absorbed Glass Mat (AGM) technology, are amongst the highest quality in terms of reserve capacity, long cycle life and low internal resistance, while achieving superior cranking performance. These batteries are the smart choice for demanding recreational and industrial deep discharge applications.

Deep Cycle refers to applications that typically discharge 60-80% of the battery capacity. Deep Cycle Batteries are ideal for many applications such as Electric Vehicles, Marine & Recreational Vehicles, Solar & Wind Power, Material Handling Equipment, Aerial Work Platforms, Back Up Power, etc.

    Red Flash™ High Rate Battery

    Red Flash™ High Rate batteries have been designed to provide the very high cranking currents needed for the engine starting from the smallest possible battery size.

    The use of Absorbed Glass Mat (AGM) technology provides the most current transfer from the smallest battery size. Furthermore, as the electrolyte is absorbed into the plate separation material, should the battery casing become damaged there is minimal risk of damage from acid leakage.

    Features & Benefits

    • Sealed construction, no maintenance
    • Excellent shock & vibration characteristics
    • Wide operating temperature range
    • Fast recharge – no current limit providing a voltage-regulated charger is used
    • Fully absorbed electrolyte, minimal risk of leakage if damaged
    • Can be fitted upright or on its side
    • Small, slim batteries fit into restricted space
    • High cranking current provides excellent power to weight ratio
    • Ideal for engine start, especially in harsh environments
    • Non-hazardous transport by land, sea and air

      Red Flash™ Battery Charger Range

      The new Red Flash™ Battery Charger range offers a high quality, safe and effective charging system for both AGM and Gel batteries. Charging is optimised over 3 stages providing fast recharge on suitable batteries ensuring maximum battery life is achieved. These intelligent 3 stage chargers are designed for use with electrical systems commonly found in vehicle installations, onboard marine systems, workshops and industrial applications.

      The three stages offer bulk, absorption and float modes, efficiently returning the battery to full capacity before reducing the current to a level where the battery can be left on charge for an unlimited time. In-built protection for reverse polarity, short circuit, over-voltage and temperature protects the charger from misuse. When using the Red Flash™ Battery Chargers with other Valve Regulated Lead Acid Batteries we recommend you contact the manufacturer for their specific charging conditions.

      Features & Benefits

      • Professional design, easy installation
      • 3 stage intelligent charger
      • Universal AC input
      • Multiple LED indication
      • Fan cooling

            Red Flash™ Aviation Engine Start

            The Red Flash™ Portable Power Pack has been specifically designed to provide DC power for portable turbine starting and ground power support. Available as either a single unit , RF1500, or double pack, RF3000, they will maintain a stable voltage to ensure that engines are started in the most extreme environments. Proven in use, the Red Flash™ Power Pack will start military and commercial aircraft; helicopters and other heavy-duty vehicles.

            Starting engines from on-board batteries places heavy demands on battery performance that can lead to reduced lifetime and compromise operations. The Red Flash™ Power Pack will provide reliable and portable DC power for use in the workshop or remote locations. We recommend the RF1500 single unit for smaller helicopters and light aircraft. For large turbines or for applications with very demanding, high current start sequences we recommend this Red Flash™ 3000 – Heavy Duty Dual Pack – where two RF1500 starter packs are coupled together to provide over 3000 Amps starting power.

              DC-DC Converters

              These products offer a convenient way to operate mass produced 12VDC equipment such as cell phones, in-car entertainment, professional communication and telematics equipment, refrigerators, televisions etc. from the 24VDC mobile electrical systems found on diesel engine vehicles and vessels. All of our DC-DC Converters consume an offload current of less than 15mA, which is often less than the self-discharge current of the vehicle’s battery.

              In most cases this can be ignored, speeding the installation by removing the need to fit an isolator switch. All products fit onto a ‘Click ‘n’ Fit’ mounting clip which is fixed in three points allowing it to be mounted on uneven surfaces. It is easy to fit the clip into awkward places and then simply click the unit into position. A red LED indicates when there is output from the converter. This gives reassurance to the installation engineer and speeds fault finding.

              Features & Benefits

              • A comprehensive range of voltages and current ratings available
              • Quick and easy installation

                Portable Power

                At DMS technologies we understand the difficulties of working with power in the field. Man-portable equipment is only helpful if it is usable. We will work with you to discuss, for example, what weight is acceptable, carrying arrangements and if the equipment can be housed within a trolley style case. With our extensive experience of extreme environments, we can also work with you on suitable handles, connectors and leads.

                The packs can be smaller with a link cable to increase overall capacity, giving the same or better performance in units which are easier to handle. Cables can be designed to store in the case, either in a recess or, where required, in a lid-mounted pocket. Cases can be stackable to aid both transportation and space reduction. We are able to offer various re-charging solutions compatible with the application which can include, for example, a combination of mains voltage, on-board vehicle and photovoltaic systems.
