Press release date: March 14, 2007

READING, Pa., March 2007 - EnerSys, the world's largest manufacturer, marketer and distributor of industrial batteries, today made available the newest thin-plate pure lead (TPPL) VRLA battery in its PowerSafe SBS line. The new SBS170F is up to 10 percent more powerful than conventional VRLA batteries in the same footprint. Its increased power density allows users to provide additional capacity in existing cabinets and design new cabinets with smaller battery compartments and/or increased battery capacity.

Users will also benefit from the new SBS170F's front terminal design, which makes it easy to install and maintain. In addition, because of the battery's use of pure-lead technology, it is more resistant to corrosion than lead-calcium batteries. This allows it to provide three times the shelf life of a traditional lead acid battery and an increase in power density, while maintaining a greater than 10-year design life.

The unique grid formation in the SBS170F is highly reliable and improves power density, reduces recharge time without sacrificing life, and enables the battery to better handle subsequent power interruptions. The battery's rugged design offers better functionality in extreme temperatures and harsh environments and is particularly suitable for wired and wireless telecom outside plant applications in cell sites, cabinets, CEV's and huts, as well as for utility/switchgear and cable TV applications.

The 12-volt SBS170F has a nominal capacity of 170 Ah at both the eight- and 10-hour rates. Its operating temperature ranges from -40°C to 50°C (-40°F to 122°F), its dimensions are 22.1" L x 4.9" W x 11.1" H (561 mm x 125 mm x 283 mm), and it weighs 115.7 lbs. (52.5 kg). Its terminal fasteners are M6 M. The battery can also be configured as a SBS170 top terminal model with M8 F terminal fasteners.

The battery's footprint supports several outside telecommunication cabinets and fits a 48-volt configuration in a 23-inch frame application.
