Wom-Batt has a design life of 15-20 years underground – far longer than traditional batteries, many of which need replacement every 3 years. It is used in many roadside systems, including solar streetlights,
flood monitoring systems, VMS, and road information signage. Other off-grid utilities Wom-Batt can powered include weather stations, sensors, CCTV cameras, vehicle activated systems, proximity sensors, impact sensors, electric fences, remote alarms, Cell-Fi boosters.
Wom-Batt was developed in close collaboration with state transport authorities to solve problems associated with traditional roadside batteries. Wom-Batt’s enclosed cylindrical design means faster, cheaper installation – a separate concrete pit is not required. Its underground placement solves the problem of roadside battery theft. An MPPT controller can also be incorporated into the design. Wom-Batt contains extra internal safety features to make it resistant to temperature changes and flooding – it is certified IP68 at 5m for 100 hours.
Wom-Batt is built to reduce energy-related costs and maximise the economic and environmental benefits of off-grid solar energy utility systems. Wom-Batt products are built for longevity and reliability, meaning they last much longer than other off-grid power solutions and rarely need replacement, reducing the amount of waste created in their disposal. The LiFePO4 technology on which Wom-Batt operates has high stability with low toxicity, making Wom-Batt safer than many conventional batteries.
Through supporting sustainable solar utilities, Wom-Batt seeks to not only meet the needs of its current customers but also to support future generations in creating healthy, livable communities by proudly supporting the Reef Restoration Foundation and the important work they perform on the Great Barrier Reef.
