Section 1 - General Information
1.0 AMARON QUANTATM Batteries
In normal use, AMARON QUANTATM
Batteries will not generate or release hydrogen and
oxygen gases, will not release acid mist and will not have acid leak. This is because AMARON
Batteries are designed differently from conventional lead acid batteries in order to
provide maintenance - free operation. They are inherently safer than conventional lead acid
batteries. However, there is a possibility that under abnormal operating conditions, or as a
result of damage, misuse and /or abuse, these potentially hazardous conditions (gassing, acid
mist, and leaking electrolyte) can occur. Thus AmaraRaja recommends that the instructions entitled
“SAFETY PRECAUTIONS” be reviewed thoroughly and strictly followed when working with AMARON
Section 2 - Safety Precautions
2.0 Safety Alert
The safety alert symbol at the right appears throughout this manual. Where the symbol appears,
obey the safety message to avoid personal injury.
Before proceeding with the unpacking, handling, Installation and operation of this AMARON
valve- regulated lead-acid storage battery, the following general information should be
reviewed together with the recommended safety precautions.
2.1 Sulfuric acid burns
Batteries contain sulfuric acid, which can cause burns and other serious injuries. In the event of
contact with sulfuric acid, flush immediately and thoroughly with water. Secure medical attention
immediately. When working with batteries, wear a rubber apron, rubber gloves and safety goggles or
other eye protecting equipment. These will help in preventing injury of contact is made with the acid.
2.2 Explosive gases
Under abnormal usage and excessive overcharging batteries can generate excessive gases, which will be
released pressure thru the vent plugs / safety valves area and any contact with spark/fire will lead to
excessive flames causing blindness and other serious injury. If the safety vent opens while the gases are
being generate (i.e. in the event of the charger malfunction / over charge) these explosive gases will be
released. Keep sparks flame and smoking materials away from the batteries area.
2.3 Electrical shock and burns
All installation tools should be adequately insulated / covered with vinyl electrical tape, or suitable nonconducting
material to minimize possibility of shorting across connections.
Never lay tools or other metallic objects on modules as it may result in shorting of battery leading to
explosions and personal injury.
Multi-battery systems attain high voltages therefore extreme caution must be exercised during
installation of a battery system to prevent serious electrical burns or shock. Loose or dirty connectors
/ connection can cause battery fires. Keep all connectors / connections clean and torque at proper values.
Keep the outside of batteries clean and dry Neutralize any acid corrosion with cloth moisture with a
solution of baking soda and water, then wipe off all traces of soda.
Do not move or shift the cabinet once installed without first disconnecting load to the cabinet and all inter
cabinet connections. Refer wiring diagrams for location of these connections.
Do not lift the Batteries by “L” terminal / posts. Do not tamper with post seals, protective covers pressure
relief vents or other battery components.
Disconnect the DC circuits from the charging equipment & load before working on batteries. Ensure that
the personnel who stand the risk of working with batteries are prepared.
