East Penn Introduces New Deka Unigy Battery

East Penn Manufacturing Co., Inc. introduces the new 12AVR-150ET. This new front access 12-volt battery is rated at 150 A.H. at the 8-hour rate to 1.75 final volts per cell. The new 150ET utilizes space saving absorbed glass mat (AGM) construction to maximize performance and minimize rack space. For example, a 48-volt/150 A.H. battery system will fit into a 23-inch relay rack tray. Along with its high power and space saving design, the 150ET’s front access terminals makes it easier to install and perform routine maintenance checks.

The 150ET is designed specifically for long discharge telecommunication applications such as Cellular, PCS and Outside Plant Cabinets. The 150ET can also be suited for high-rate uninterruptible power supplies (UPS).

The 150ET features tank formed plates to optimize cell voltage and performance providing dependability and long life. Proven epoxy-sealed posts and recessed terminals eliminate post leakage concerns. In addition, reinforced flame-retardant, polypropylene cases resist bulging and meet safety requirements (rated 28 LOI). This battery is designed to deliver 10 years in full float applications at 77F (25C) with the proper charging care and maintenance. The design and construction of the 150ET meet UL recognition requirements and the performance meet or exceed IEEE 485 and Bellcore capacity requirements.
