ION-LINE

ION-LINE Safety storage cabinets for the safe, active and passive storage of lithium-ion batteries

14100_ION-LINE_asecos_Anwendungsbeispiel

Safe storage of lithium batteries: as the world's leading manufacturer of safety cabinets, asecos has developed special fire-resistant storage cabinets for medium powered lithium-ion batteries. Lithium-ion batteries can be safely stored (passive storage) and, depending on the model, also charged (active storage) in these safety cabinets without permanent supervision.

In the event of an external fire, the lithium-ion batteries stored in the safety cabinets are protected against overheating for a period of 90 minutes. This prevents the lithium-ion batteries stored in the cabinet from spontaneously igniting, becoming unstable or exploding.

Even in case of a fire coming from the inside, fire resistance of more than 90 minutes is demonstrably achieved. Depending on the model, the safety cabinets are additionally equipped with an automatic aerosol fire-extinguishing system and smoke/temperature sensors. That means: Perfect protection even during unattended loading.

ION-LINE

  • Type 90 Safety storage cabinets according to EN 14470-1 and EN 1363-1.
  • In accordance with TRGS 510, the cabinets are classified as a storage section – the specifications of VdS 3103:2016-05 are thus met.
  • Doors lockable with cylinder lock (locking system compatible) and locking state indicator (red/green).
  • Easy transport: integrated transport base for internal transportation, base cover available as an option.
  • Easy alignment: adjusting aids to compensate for uneven floor.
14100_ION-LINE_asecos_Collage
14100_ION-LINE_asecos_mit Entlüftung

Robust construction and longevity:

Triple hinged door, safety elements assembled outside the storage compartement for increased protection against corrosion, scratch- and impact-resistant surface

Easy handling with comfort:

Smooth doors with permanent self-closing function and oil-dampened door closer. Open doors with a minimum amount of force.

Smoke detector and temperature sensor:

If the smoke detector detects incipient smoke in the interior of the cabinet, alarm level 1 is triggered. If the temperature sensor measures an increase in the internal temperature, the electronic control system triggers:

  • at over 50° C a warning message to the central control centre,
  • at over 70° C (and in case of simultaneously activated smoke detector) alarm level 2.
14100_ION-LINE_asecos_Nutzer-2

Optical and acoustic signalling (depending on the model):

Function indicator (green LED) and 2-stage warning light (red LED): The warning light is activated and lit; either solid or flashing depending on the alarm level. The green function indicator goes out.

2-stage acoustic alarm signal: Alarm is triggered; depending on the alarm level, with slow/medium/fast tone interval.

Electronic control:

Alarm forwarding: The electronic control incl. potential-free switching contact offers the possibility of connection to building control technology (for models BATTERY STORE PRO and BATTERY CHARGE).

In addition for model BATTERY CHARGE: The electronic control switches off the ventilation (at alarm stage 2) and electrical supply to the power strips is switched off.

Fire suppression device:

The high-quality fire suppression system in the cabinet interior is automatically triggered in case of fire (alarm level 2), when the temperature sensor registers an internal temperature greater than 70° C in addition to the already activated smoke detector (alarm level 1).

Ventilation:

For the model BATTERY CHARGE: Ventilation to avoid heat build-up in the interior.

Power strip:

Each storage level is equipped with a high-quality power strip including metal housing and 10 protective charging sockets. The power strips are pre-mounted on the cabinet rear panel ready for use.

14100_ION-LINE_asecos_Nutzer-3

Tested bottom collecting sump:

The bottom collecting sump (powder-coated steel sheet) has been tested according to StawaR and is used to absorb any leakage of burning batteries.

Extraction

Technical ventilation of safety storage cabinets

Hazardous materials create harmful vapours which need to be captured at their release and production point. Otherwise hazardous area zones will occur and increase the risk of explosive atmospheres. Therefore when storing hazardous materials in safety storage cabinets, the technical ventilation will have to be considered: our tested and certified ventilation systems and modules guarantee compliance with TRGS 510 (Annexe 3) by eliminating all the emerging hazardous materials - creating a healthy and safe working environment for your employees.

Entlüftungsschema_Banl

The recirculating air filter system UFA.20.30 with integrated electronic exhaust air monitoring and filter unit allows the flexible, cost- and energy-saving installation and ventilation of your safety storage cabinets – regardless of whether it is a tall or under bench cabinet. A connection to the exhaust fan is not required.

Extraction units and modules capture escaping vapours and gases safely - easy and quick installation, ready to plug-in. Available for the installation on top of the cabinet or for wall mounting, with or without extraction air monitoring.

About us

asecos – Europe’s leading manufacturer of type-tested safety storage cabinets

The world that moves us revolves around hazardous materials. We ensure that hazardous substances are appropriately stored and safely handled in our day-to-day working life. The best possible protection of humankind and the environment is our number 1 priority. Driven by this desire, we developed the first safety storage cabinet with 90-minute fire resistance for the storage of flammable liquids in 1994.

What was a technical revolution in the industry at that time has now become the generally accepted technical standard. asecos products combine quality, innovation and safety for one purpose: to benefit the customer.

Whatever kind of hazardous substance we are dealing with, our developments set new standards. With a team of excellently trained workers and our high company standards, we guarantee consistency and perfection.

asecos offers more than 3000 products for the storage, handling, transportation and ventilation of hazardous materials. The company's core competence includes the development and manufacturing of fire resistant safety storage cabinets according to the European Standard EN 14470. All safety storage cabinets are "Made in Germany" and will be delivered all over the world.

The primary goal of a safety storage cabinet is the minimization of the fire risk when storing combustible liquids or compressed gases. In case of a fire the safety storage cabinets prevent the substances stored within from assisting the spread of the fire. A special fire-retardant construction makes it possible. The quality and safety of asecos products are recognized and certified by all leading institutes. Products manufactured in-house by asecos are benchmarks for maximum safety and quality.

In total, there are four cabinet type classes: 15, 30, 60 and 90. The respective type class indicates how long the cabinet protects the hazardous materials stored inside against fire. The asecos cabinet models are available in various sizes, with different doors and door arrest systems as well as innumerable equipment options. Furthermore, there are different cabinets for the storage of combustible liquids, compressed gas cylinders, acids and alkalis and non-combustible chemicals.
