Yuasa Inc. (Reading, PA) introduced the Independence PL Series, a new family of front termination VRLA batteries designed for use in distributed power and wireless applications. Claimed to be the first true plug 'n play industrial battery on the market, the battery eliminates the need for users to attach connectors and bolts.
According to Yuasa, the 110Ah PL-110 battery has the same footprint as 100Ah products on the market, providing back-up power for an extended time period in a space-efficient structure. The 140Ah PL-140 is claimed to offer one of the highest power densities in the industries. The PL battery is based on Absorbed Glass Mat (AGM) VRLA technology with long-life calcium grids, according to Yuasa.
The PL-110 is priced at $420.
