BROADVIEW, Ill. (Aug. 16, 2016) — Robert Bosch L.L.C. has launched a line of heavy-duty batteries for commercial vehicle applications.
The new Bosch T6 AGM, T5 Dual Purpose and T4 batteries were developed to withstand extreme conditions unique to heavy-duty vehicles, the firm said, including extended idling and severe temperatures. According to Bosch, they provide coverage for over-the-road and local delivery trucks, fire-fighting vehicles, buses and municipal vehicles.
The new T6 AGM features absorbent glass-mat technology, which Bosch said is among the newest innovations in battery design and construction. It incorporates microfiber glass mats designed to absorb battery acid to protect the battery plates.
