Battery Suits High-Rate Discharge Apps

A new 6V battery has been developed for high rate discharge applications requiring high power for short intervals. The NPX 35-6 valve-regulated lead-acid battery is said to achieve 30% more power than conventional batteries with an equivalent footprint and voltage. It was designed specifically to meet the high-energy needs of a wide range of UPS and general electronics applications. Meeting industry standards including UL approval, IATA certification for air transport, US DOT classification for non-spillable batteries, the NPX 35-6 can be operated in any position without leakage for complete flexibility during installation and use. Multiple terminal options increase flexibility to meet a variety of user needs. The battery’s sealed construction eliminates watering requirements to reduce maintenance. It is housed in a rugged ABS resin, with an optional UL-recognized VO flame-retardant ABS housing. The NPX35-6 has a capacity of 35W/cell at a 15-min. discharge rate to 1.67 Vpc. Measuring 151 mm x 64 mm x 97.5 mm high including terminals, the battery has a design life of three to five years at 25°C, and retains up to 85% of its charge after six months of storage at 20°C. Pricing starts at $22. ENERSYS INC., Reading, PA. (800) 538-3627.
