Enersys' Thin Plate, Pure Lead Genesis XE Battery Demonstrates High Discharge Capability

READING, Pa., October 2006 - EnerSys, the world's largest manufacturer, marketer and distributor of industrial batteries, today announced a new addition to its line of Genesis XE batteries. The Genesis XE60, featuring a thin plate, pure lead design, offers a high rate of discharge making it ideal for applications requiring high power in a short duration such as UPS, computer backup and other electronics applications. The battery is also particularly useful in demanding environmental and cycling applications such as hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs) and alternative energy solutions.

The 12-volt XE60 offers more power in less space than conventional batteries. It measures 10.85" L x 6.99" W x 7.82" H (275.6 mm x 177.5 mm x 198.6 mm) and weighs 53 lbs. Because of its rugged construction, the battery can be installed in any orientation except inverted and is tolerant against high levels of shock, heat and vibration. The XE60 is also approved by US DOT and IATA as non-hazardous and non-spillable for safe shipping.

Some of the performance features of the XE60 include a deep cycle capability of 400 cycles at 80 percent depth of discharge (DOD), and a superior deep discharge recovery of up to 90 percent recharge in less than an hour. The battery is a valve-regulated lead-acid (VRLA) absorbed glass mat (AGM) battery, has M6 female no-maintenance terminals, and a UL94 V-O flame retardant case and cover.

Nominal capacity for the XE60 is 62 Ah, internal resistance is 2.5W, typical short circuit current is 3,100 A, and torque is 60 inch-lbs (6.8 Nm). The battery has a wide operating temperature of -40°C to 80°C (-40°F to 176°F) with a metal jacket, and boasts a two-year shelf life at 25°C (77°F).

Pricing for the Genesis XE60 starts at $248.95. Delivery is eight weeks ARO.
