East Penn Manufacturing Introduces the Deka Unigy II S95 VRLA Battery with Space Efficient Interlock™ Module

East Penn Manufacturing Company recently added the S95, a 95 amp hour positive plate battery system, to its Unigy II line. Several unique design features have been incorporated into the S95, but the biggest achievement is that this valve-regulated lead-acid (VRLA) battery system utilizes a smaller footprint design to deliver more power in less space. For example, in comparison to a typical 48-volt system, the S95 battery is 12% smaller and delivers 8% more power.

The S95 incorporates design features that are unmatched in the rest of the industry. Equipped with a standard two-piece Interlock™ base, the S95 system meets the latest UBC97 Zone 3 fault line specifications and is certified up to 8 modules high. An optional one-piece Interlock base is also available to meet Zone 4 top of building requirements.

The new Interlock Module design eliminates rear bolting, offering a new front access bolting feature for increased installation efficiency and safety. The front shield has been totally redesigned to click “On and Off” easily without using tools, for quicker assembly. The use of “C”-type intercell connectors has been eliminated with a newer “two-way” post design that makes connector assembly and system installation faster and easier.

The Deka Unigy II battery series is available in a wide range of capacities and sizes in configurations of three and six cells per module. Positive plate capacities range from a 45 A.H. cell to the newest 95 A.H. plate battery, the S95. Power reserves for the S95 range from 285 A.H. to 1520 A.H. Deka Unigy II batteries, constructed using the finest quality materials and state-of-the-art manufacturing techniques, are known for their high reliability and superior performance. Unigy II batteries are designed to achieve 20 years life under normal operating conditions.

Unigy II batteries are used in a variety of critical backup power applications, including telecommunications, switch gear control, cellular radio, photovoltaics, railroad signal and communications, and uninterruptible power (UPS) systems.
