Batteries offer double the cycle life of conventional cyclic use units
02 April 2012
Yuasa Battery Sales' new Yu-Power YPC series of batteries offer double the cycle life of conventional cyclic use batteries at 75% depth of discharge. The valve regulated construction combined with heavy-duty plates and novel separator systems deliver cyclic capability twice as long as conventional counterparts. The new batteries are capable of up to 500 charge/discharge cycles, ensuring long service life.
Battery electrolyte is retained solidly in the separator and the gas recombining system ensures minimum gas discharge, freeing the user from any maintenance requirements. The plate barrier prevention and separator systems help to ensure deep discharge use, thus considerably prolonging the battery service life.
Cyclic-use batteries are often left in a discharged state after use and the resultant plate corrosion can lead to shortened life. With a self-discharge rate as small as 0.1% per day at 20°C, the Yu-Power YPC range avoids this problem and extends the storage period capability.
Ten 12V models are available in the range offering higher capacities from the same footprint as standard cyclic batteries. Nominal capacities at 25°C (20hr rate) are 8.5, 13.94, 22, 26, 30, 35, 46.8, 55, 78.7 and 104Ah.
