Side Mount Termination Kit
Fused Side Mount Battery Termination Kit
Dynamic Battery Sales & Service (DBSS) has developed its SideTerm line of battery termination kits to improve the installation and safety of large valve regulated lead acid (VRLA) battery sets in telecommunication applications. The U.S. National Electrical Code (NEC) generally requires that all conductors be protected from overcurrent (Article 240). This protection can be in the form of fuses or circuit breakers that are both listed for the application (particularly DC voltage) and rated to interrupt both the nominal current and the possible fault current due to short circuits. Without the presence of over current protection batteries used for backup in telecommunications can short circuit and cause significant damage.
DBSS fused terminal kits allow fusing of the battery leads at the battery where the fuse can provide the most protection. For those applications where the battery-mounted fuses are not applicable, the same basic fuse assembly is available in an enclosure for connecting to the power cables. Models are available for other brands of AGM batteries contact DBSS for details.
