The NorthStar NSB 40FT Red Battery is designed specifically for telecom float applications where power outages are rare. This battery has been formulated with a unique combination of grid alloy and active material, which allows the technology to resist the normal corrosion processes that occur within lead-acid monoblocs. The float life of these monoblocs is class leading. In addition to an excellent corrosion resistance, the NSB 40FT Red battery has also been formulated to provide a high energy density. Not only does this allow for maximum backup times, but it also minimizes the monobloc footprint and reduces floor loadings. Finally, the NSB 40FT Red battery has been designed so that it can be charged quickly, so that it is always ready to provide power in the event of a mains outage.
