GUARANTEED FOR LIFE

We are excited to announce our Locomotive Lithium-Ion Battery. This technology allows for a single, 64V drop-in replacement of the traditional two lead-acid batteries. This allows space for an auxiliary battery that can power the HVAC, cab electronics, and air compressor.

Lithium-Ion Battery

LOCOMOTIVE LITHIUM-ION BATTERY

The new Locomotive Lithium-Ion Starting Battery solution offered by Progress Rail guarantees to save fuel, enhance safety and deliver reliable starting. A single lithium-ion battery replaces two lead-acid batteries on a locomotive, this enables the second available battery box on the locomotive to be used by another lithium-ion auxiliary battery that allows the cab HVAC to be operated up to six hours while the engine is shutdown. Other motor-driven accessories and cab electronics can also be run off this battery.
