Using the right battery for the right application is vital to ensure your battery performs correctly.
But do you know whether your application requires a cyclic or standby battery
In Cyclic charge and discharge applications, Valve Regulated Lead Acid or VRLA batteries are often pushed to their limits.
If the wrong battery is specified, for example a General Purpose model such as the Yuasa NP range, the results can be poor performance and a short cycle life.
Yuasa offer 2 complimentary ranges of batteries specifically designed cyclic use. These are the well-proven NPC range, and the more recent addition of the REC range.
The REC range has capacities available down to 10Ah, and the NPC range has capacities available up to 100Ah, giving an eleven-battery range to suit most applications.
A float STANDBY application is one where a battery is maintained, using a float charge voltage, in a 100% state of charge ready to support an attached load immediately should the mains supply fail.
The float charge voltage ensures the correct current flow to compensate for any self-discharge characteristic. A typical application for an industrial battery system would be an Uninterruptable Power Supply (UPS).
Yuasa consider a float STANDBY application to be where a battery has no more discharges than is indicated on table below
|DOD ²||Allowable Discharges per Year (average)|
|0.1 – 10%||16-18|
And also meets the following criteria:-
Depth of Discharge (DOD). 100% Discharge in regards to this document should be considered to be end of calculated autonomy period at any given load.
A 10% discharge would be a discharge time of 10% of the calculated autonomy at a given load.
Euro Energy are battery experts and have distributed Yuasa VRLA batteries for more than 30 years.
