    What is the battery type and technology used in APC UPS Systems?

    Issue:

    What is the battery type and technology used in APC UPS Systems?


    Product Line:

    All APC Single Phase UPS Battery systems.


    Environment:

    All APC Single Phase UPS Battery systems.


    Cause / Resolution:

    APC UPS Systems use Valve Regulated Lead Acid (VRLA) batteries. VRLA batteries are designed to recombine hydrogen and oxygen and emit only extremely small amounts of hydrogen under normal operating conditions. Normal room ventilation is sufficient to remove any hydrogen, so special ventilation is not required. The electrolyte in a VRLA battery is not in liquid form but is immobilized. The most common technology, termed “Absorbed Glass Mat (AGM) uses a highly porous, absorbent micro fiberglass mats that immobilize the electrolyte and prevents it from spilling. A crack or hole in the casing of a VRLA battery using AGM technology will not result in a measurable electrolyte spill. Spill containment with VRLA batteries is therefore not meaningful or appropriate.
