Abstract:

The report contains the results of this contract which was to design, develop and test the BB-500 U battery assembly. The BB-500 U battery assembly is a rechargeable, vented, sintered-plate, nickel-cadmium storage battery. The battery assembly has a military-ruggedized design and consists of twenty 20 individual, series-connected cells in a double-decked configuration. The individual cells are the BB-437 U batteries and are contained in stainless steel trays, housed in a fiberglass exterior case. The battery assembly is equipped with military equipment connectors to prevent reverse polarity and voltage mis-match connections. As a result of the USAECOM connector arrangement, the BB-500 U battery assembly is rated at 24 volts and 9 ampere-hours or 12 volts and 18 ampere-hours. Author
