Yuasa is a world leading valve regulated lead acid batteries with manufacturing worldwide including in the UK in South Wales. The Yuasa UPS batteries are one of the most commonly used lead acid batteries for standby power applications and include the NP, SWL and EN ranges. Yuasa batteries are available for new UPS installations and for upgrades and replacements.
The batteries used within most uninterruptible power supplies as a standby power source are valve regulated lead acid (VRLA) maintenance free batteries. The actual working life of a UPS battery depends on its design life, number of charge/discharge cycles it is subjected to and the ambient temperature and conditions of the UPS installation. This type of battery is also found in generate starter motor circuits.
|Yuasa Range||Design Life||Replacement|
|NP||5 year||3-4 years|
|NPL||10 year||7-8 years|
|EN||10 year||7-8 years|
|ENL||15 year||10-12 years|
|SWL||10 year||7-8 years|
Server Room Environments provides battery testing as an on-site service. Our UPS maintenance engineers are certified to work in both AC and DC power environments and use an advanced battery tester using conductive and impedance testing to assess the health of a battery block and the overall battery string. Battery readings are stored for continual analysis in a Cloud server environment.
When batteries require replacement, our projects team can arrange for their removal and environmentally friendly disposal. Over 90% of a lead acid battery material can be reclaimed for reuse including plastic cases, lead plates and the electrolytic gel or liquid used.
