Designed for use in electric vehicles, materials handling equipment, access platforms and floor cleaners, the new Pro-Spec range of semi-traction batteries from Yuasa Battery Sales (UK), feature advanced charge technology to deliver extra power, higher reliability and prolonged service life.

The Pro-Spec range includes plate barrier prevention and separator systems which minimise self discharge and maximise both the out of use storage period and the number of recharge cycles - yielding more power and reliability while prolonging the battery’s service life.

Vibration resistant and maintenance-free, the new batteries are available in eight models - four 6V, three 8V and one 12V. Three terminal styles are available, encompassing embedded (ET), dual fit (DT), and standard terminal (ST) types. The four 6V batteries feature 20 hour rate capacities of 210, 225, 240 and 260Ah while the 8V models offer 170, 190 and 240Ah. The 12V model’s 20 hour rate capacity is 150Ah.

Technical features include a PP resin moulded case and lid for reduced weight and improved shock and acid resistance, special lead alloy cast terminals with special plating to minimise heat generation and electrical resistance, and to maximise vibration resistance, plus an engineering structure cap to vent gas out and allow easy refilling should maintenance be required.

The batteries feature separators manufactured from porous rubber to resist acid corrosion while offering lower electrical resistance, and cells feature micro-fibre glass mat to prevent active material shedding. Battery plates are fabricated from material with negatives 99.9% pure lead combined with positive corrosion resistant grids both featuring hard paste with specific additives.

Yuasa Pro-Spec batteries are designed for use with intelligent charging systems able to provide constant-current/constant-voltage controlled charge profiles.
