What Makes the difference:
Yuasa are world leaders in valve regulated lead-acid battery design and manufacture and have automotive battery, industrial battery and motorcycle battery distributors all over the world.
NP, NPH and NPC series
utilise the latest advance design Oxygen Recombination Technology. Yuasa have applied their 80 years experience in the lead acid battery field to produce the optimum design of Sealed Valve Regulated Lead Acid batteries. Yuasa NP batteries are the most reliable batteries in the world, which is why industry choose Yuasa over any other battery for security, fire, emergency lighting and uninterruptible power source (UPS) applications.
Electrolyte Suspension System
All NP batteries utilize Yuasa’s unique electrolyte suspension system incorporating a microfine glass mat to retain the maximum amount of electrolyte in the cells. The electrolyte is retained in the separator material and there is no free electrolyte to escape from the cells. No gels or other contaminants are added.
Control of Gas Generation
The design of Yuasa’s NP batteries incorporates the very latest oxygen recombination technology to effectively control the generation of gas during normal use.
Long Cycle Service Life
Depending upon the average depth of discharge, over a thousand discharge/charge cycles can be expected.
Float Service Life
The expected service life is five years in float standby applications.
Low Maintenance Operation
Due to the perfectly sealed construction and the recombination of gasses within the cell, the battery is almost maintenance free.
NP batteries are manufactured using a range of terminals which vary in size and type. Please refer to details as shown.
Operation in any Orientation
The combination of sealed construction and Yuasa’s unique electrolyte suspension system allows operation in any orientation, with no loss of performance or fear of electrolyte leakage. (Excluding continuous use inverted)
Valve Regulated Design
The batteries are equipped with a simple, safe low pressure venting system which releases excess gas and automatically reseals should there be a build up of gas within the battery due to severe overcharge. Note. On no account should the battery be charged in a sealed container.
Long shelf Life
The extremely low self discharge rate allows the battery to be stored for extended periods up to one year at normal ambient temperatures with no permanent loss of capacity.
Operating Temperature Range
The batteries can be used over a broad temperature range permitting considerable flexibility in system design and location.
The use of the special separator material provides a very efficient insulation between plates preventing inter-plate short circuits and prohibiting the shedding of active materials.
