Excellent safety, long life and rapid recharging
Rechargeable Battery SCiBTM
Product Features
Safety, Long Life
There is a very low risk of fire or explosion. Therefore, SCiB™ is suitable for
various applications. SCiB™ also requires low maintenance even when it is used in
applications that perform frequent charging and discharging. The long life
characteristic contributes in reducing the TCO*1.
*1 TCO (Total Cost of Ownership)
Rapid Charging, Low Temperature Operation
SCiB™ can conduct quick charging for automobiles and buses with large current.
SCiB™ exhibits low degradation and keeps its cycle life even when it is charged
and discharged at -30℃.
High Input & Output, Wide Effective SOC*2 Range
SCiB™ can be charged and discharged at high current rate. It exhibits
excellent input/output characteristics over a wide SOC range of 0 -100%.
*2 SOC (State of Charge)

Example of Applications
SCiBTM is used in the Emergency-Running
Battery System for Tokyo Metro Ginza Line.
• SCiBTM is used in the Emergency-Running Battery System
for Tokyo Metro Ginza Line, Tokyo’s oldest subway line.
• The 22 kWh SCiBTM Emergency-Running Battery System
ensures that trains can safely carry passengers to the
nearest station in the event of a total power loss.
• Presently, the battery systems are installed on 40 new Ginza
Line 1000 series trains that started service from April 2016.
SCiBTM will be used in an Innovative Series-Parallel
Hybrid Shunting Locomotive.
• Toshiba, led by Deutsche Bahn (DB)*4, will use the SCiB™ technology
in a Series-Parallel Hybrid Locomotive project called HELMS
(Hybrid ELectro-Mechanical Shunter).
This joint project is a significant innovation in the railway industry.
• In addition to achieving the same performances compared
to the existing diesel locomotives, the project aims to drastically
improve the life cycle cost and fuel consumption of locomotives.
