In 2012 the European Union marked through its various directives reduction targets of greenhouse gas emissions from cars and should reach 130kg / km by 2015. That is why the automotive industry had to make significant technical advances for cars manufactured in the EU fulfill those objectives.
The appearance of the Start-Stop System was a major challenge in boot technology, as conventional batteries not responded so far to systems on / off continuously. By contrast, the start-stop battery offers:
- 4 times the charging and discharging cycles of a standard battery.
- + 20% power.
- Maximum load acceptance.
- It supports deep discharges of up to 75%.
- Without maintenance.
The Start-Stop technology has made the battery in the true heart of the system. With this breakthrough fuel consumption is reduced by 10% and CO2 emission is reduced by up to 10%. This is achieved primarily by turning off the engine each time the vehicle stops. A conventional battery may not exceed these efforts for a long time.
BATTERIES EFB and AGM, serving the Start-Stop System
The aftermarket, currently in EFB and AGM is limited to high-end vehicles with large consumers on board or special applications.
– We began to see sales AGM Start-Stop replacement throughout 2012.
– We began to see sales EFB Start-Stop replacement in 2013-2014.
-The Change of EFB and AGM battery should only be done by another battery EFB and AGM of identical specification.
