RDB & RDC RACK FEATURES AND BENEFITS C&D Technologies RDB and RDC racks offer a variety of quality and value-added features. Most notably, both rack series take advantage of a “common-frame” design among the Standard, EP1, and EP2 series for all but the RDC 3 Tier EP2 rack. This allows the racks to be field upgradeable by simply installing additional bracing, while not having to remove any batteries! Additionally, the racks use a “C-Channel” frame cross-section that is more robust than competitive designs. The RDB EP racks are qualified to meet UBC 1994 Section 1630 seismic loading...

TECHNOLOGIES Power Solutions TECHNOLOGIES® FLOODED RACK DETAILS AND DIMENSIONS Battery Type 5. Multiple rack configurations: Back-to-back racks may be bolted together. 5 in. (127 mm) minimum separation required between end-to-end EP rack installations. End-to-end Standard rack installations need no minimum separation. NOTES: 1. Consult engineering assembly drawings for more detailed dimensions and specific rack weights. 2. Rack depth does not include thickness of cross bracing and hardware. 3. The 800 series RDB racks will support either DJ, DJU, J or K cell types. Spacer blocks are...

SELECTING THE RIGHT RDC RACK EP CATEGORY FOR UBC 1994/1997: 1. Determine the UBC Seismic Zone required for your geographic area (see map on page 4) 2. Determine if the installation is (a) Essential or Non-Essential and (b) located above grade or located at or below grade. 3. Choose the C&D seismic RDC rack category from the chart below which is qualified for that location. IEEE-693 QUALIFIED RDB RACKS C&D now offers several RDB rack models qualified to the IEEE-693 2005 standard. The following 2 Tier and 2 Step racks have been qualified: • RDB0801-693 HIGH • RDB0803-693 HIGH • RDB0901-693...
