East Penn Expands Unigy I Line with New Telecom Battery

East Penn Manufacturing Company has expanded its line of Deka Unigy I absorbed, valve-regulated (AVR) batteries for cell sites and other telecommunication applications. The new 12AVR-90 battery complements the Unigy I line offering more coverage for cabinet sizes and multiple application demands. The 12AVR90 is also a direct replacement for batteries used in the Nortel EBE battery enclosure.

The 12AVR-90’s dimensions (12.01″ (305 mm) L x 6.80″ (173 mm) W x 8.24″ (209 mm) H) and footprint maximizes shelf space and is an ideal length for a compact fit. Special design features like epoxy-sealed posts and recessed terminals extend the design life of the 12AVR-90 further than standard batteries used in telecom applications. The 12AVR-90 is designed to deliver 10 years in full float applications at 77F (25C) with the proper charging care and maintenance.

Unigy I batteries feature tank formed plates to ensure full formation for optimum capacity. The Unigy line also comes in reinforced cases, complete with carrying handles. These cases resist bulging and meet safety requirements (rated 28 LOI).
