Abstract : The BB-501()/U is intended for use as a detached power source for communication equipment. Consisting of 20 BB-613()/U cells wired in two 12-volt blocks and housed in a common battery box, the BB-501()/U can deliver 28.0 ampere-hours at 12 volts or 14 ampere-hours at 24 volts. Voltage selection is accomplished by a special connector that connects the two cell blocks, in parallel for 12 volts or in series for 24 volts. The battery case has been designed so that it can also house the BB-355()/U sealed Ni-Cd, BB-519()/U vented Cd-AgO, BB-573()/U sealed Cd-AgO, and BB-537()/U vented Zn-AgO cells in 12- or 24-volt packages.
