    B. NFPA 70 National Electrical Code (NEC)

    C. NFPA 110 Emergency and Standby Power Systems

    D. UL 1564 Battery Charges, Industrial

    E. UL 1989 Standby Batteries

    1.03 SUBMITTALS

    A. Submit product data on batteries, battery charger and accessories.

    B. Include outline and support point dimensions of enclosures and accessories; number of cells,

    unit weight and total weight; voltage, ratings and capacities. Capacity shall be based on

    requirements of the 5kV metal-clad circuit breakers switchgear in Section 26 13 00.

    C. Electrical Diagrams: Submit schematic and wiring diagrams of the electrical system showing

    all factory wiring and clearly indicating all wiring and connections to be made in the field. PART 2 - PRODUCTS

    2.01 BATTERY

    A. Type: Valve Regulated Lead Acid (VLRA) plate type, with short-period high-rate discharge

    capability for switchgear-control application. Provide absorbed glass-mat (AGM) or standard

    wet-cell battery. Gel-cell batteries or similar designs employing a gelled-electrolyte or

    electrolyte paste is not acceptable.

    B. Capacity: Amp-Hours at the 8-Hour discharge rate and amperes for 1 minute requirements

    shall be obtained from the 5kV metal switchgear manufacturer. Capacity shall consider and

    end voltage of not less than 1.14 volts per cell at 77 degrees F, starting from a fully charged

    cell.

    C. Voltage: 48 volts nominal.

    D. Containers: Translucent, impact-resistant polypropylene with minimum and maximum levels

    indicated.

    E. Number of cells: As required.

    F. Caps: Flash arrestor’s self-sealing removable type.

    G. Other Requirements: Provide batteries complete with all inner-cell and inter-rack connectors,

    end lugs and each battery filled with electrolyte, fully charged and with standard accessories. 2.02 RACK

    A. Provide a suitable steel rack to support the complete bank of batteries needed to support the

    metal clad switchgear line up. Finish metal so burrs, sharp edges and other similar

    imperfections are removed and surface is smooth. After fabrication, paint with alkaline paint,

    ANSI 61 Light Gray.

    2.03 CHARGER

    A. Type: Full-wave solid state, with fully automatic AC voltage compensation, DC current

    limiting at not more than 140 percent of rated output current, suitable for battery supplied in

    paragraph 2.1 above.

    B. Rating:

    1. Input: 120 volts + 10 percent, 60 hertz + 5 percent, single phase.

    2. Output: 48 volts (nominal) and required amperes DC continuous, + 2 percent voltage

    regulation.

    C. Charging Voltage:

    1. Float Voltage Adjustable 1.35 to 1.45 volts per cell.

    2. High-Rate Voltage Adjustable 1.50 to 1.60 volts per cell.

    D. Accessories: Provide the following:

    1. Incoming circuit breaker.

    2. “AC Power ON” LED-type indicating light.

    3. AC surge suppressor.

    4. DC ammeter, + 2 percent accuracy.

    5. DC voltmeter, +2 percent accuracy.

    6. Float or high-rate voltage adjusting potentiometer.

    7. Manually operated 0 to 24 hour timer that will put charger on high-rate charge for

    selected time and automatically recharge to float charge when time out. Include “Float

    Charge” and “High Rate Charge” long-life LED type indicating lights.

    8. Alarm relays for local monitoring and remote monitoring of the following parameters:

    a. Low DC voltage

    b. High DC voltage

    c. No Current

    d. Ground

    e. Loss of AC power

    f. These signals shall be connected to the building automation system (BAS).

    9. Ground detector system, complete, indicating resistors, dual indicating lights, relays and

    wiring.

    10. Output fuse.

    2.04 ENCLOSURE:

    A. Provide a freestanding closure not wider than 48 inches or deeper than 36 inches to house

    the battery charger, relays, batteries, battery rack and branch circuit panelboard. Make

    enclosure ridge, with two front-opening doors, louvered to assure adequate ventilation of

    batteries to be mounted in lower part. Use-full-length piano hinges on doors and cushioned,

    magnetic door holders for closed position. Install charger in top portion, with all meters and

    controls visible and directly accessible. Finish enclosure with alkaline paint ANSI No. 61
