East Penn Releases Two New Front Access Unigy High Rate Batteries

East Penn Manufacturing continues to expand its High Rate front access battery line by releasing the Unigy HR3500ET and HR7500ET batteries with a 10-year design life for UPS service.

An Industry leader in back-up power solutions, East Penn’s front access terminal configuration provides a space saving and safer design for high-powered battery systems. By reducing the additional clearance needed for top connections and longer cable lengths, UPS installations that utilize East Penn’s front access battery design can maximize efficiency and long-term savings while achieving more power in less space. Installation and monitoring are streamlined and safety is significantly improved by eliminating the need to reach over the batteries to access the terminal connections.

Unigy High Rate batteries feature exclusive IPFⓇ Technology which ensures the full formation and inspection of every plate. This optimizes power capacities and ensures consistent cell-to-cell voltages critical to long-life reliability.

Unigy High Rate batteries use the latest AGM (Absorbed Glass Mat) technology to lower internal resistance for superior high-rate, short-term discharges delivering critical power when needed. Recessed posts with epoxy post seals act as a secure barrier to keep in acid and critical pressure. Low pressure self-sealing valves prevent premature dry-out and minimize gassing. All batteries are built with flame retardant materials and flame arrestors.

East Penn is a leading manufacturer of high quality lead-acid batteries and accessories for the UPS, telecommunications, automotive, marine, commercial, and industrial markets. The company’s quality and environmental systems for its entire 520-acre complex have been certified to ISO 9001:2008, ISO/TS 16949:2009, and ISO 14001:2004 requirements.
