MF-AGM/VRLA = Maintenance Free-Absorbed Glass Mat (AGM) Battery. Battery has Flame Arrestor and is low-pressure self sealing
Housed in flame-retardant polypropylene (rated 28 LOI) 12-Volt Monoblocks.
(A) = Battery is 2.5 in. (63.5 mm) taller and .57 in (13mm) longer than standard Group 31.
(H) = Battery has handles.
Sealed Valve-Regulated Lead Acid (VRLA) with electrolyte absorbed in separators consisting of a sponge-like mass of matted glass fibers.
Preferred for high-rate performance in uninterruptible power supply (UPS) or standby applications.
VPC = Volts per Cell.
WPC = Watts per Cell. Ratings conform to IEEE-485 Standards.
VRLA batteries use recombination reaction to prevent the escape of hydrogen and oxygen gases normally lost in a flooded lead.
acid battery. They are non-spillable, never need watering and should never be opened.
* - Power Watts per Cell for 15 minutes to 1.67 Volts Per Cell @ 77°F (25°C)
** - Amp Hour @ 20 Hour Rate to 1.75 Volts Per Cell @ 77°F (25°C)
*** - Amp Hour @ 10 Hour Rate to 1.80 Volts Per Cell @ 68°F (20°C)
1 = Lead terminal. L shaped. Terminals have square holes.
2 = Lead terminal with brass inserts. 1/4-20 x .25 Deep Female Thread.
3 = Lead terminal with brass inserts. Centerline terminals. 1/4-20 x .25 Deep Female Thread.
4 = End terminals with brass inserts. 1/4-20 (UNC) Female Thread. Ratings conform to IEEE-485 Standards.
