ZincFive BC Series UPS Battery Cabinet

The ZincFive BC Series UPS Battery Cabinets are the first nickel-zinc battery energy storage solution with backward and forward compatibility and megawatt class uninterruptible power supply (UPS) inverters. ZincFive’s nickel-zinc technology offers a smaller footprint, minimal maintenance, no thermal runaway, as well as the highest reliability and widest operating temperature range, and is ideal for mission-critical data centers.

Benefits of Nickel-Zinc Batteries

  • Offer superior power density, a low total cost of ownership and twice the typical industry-required cycle life when compared to other battery options, and all in a small footprint.
  • Have no thermal runaway or travel restrictions and contain no hazardous materials.
  • The most environmentally friendly option. Made with safe and abundant materials and have no VOCs.
  • Saves up to 6 times more GHG emissions compared to Li-ion batteries and up to 4 times more GHG emissions than Lead-acid or Gel batteries.
  • The carbon payback of the NiZn is between 0.16 and 0.21 years, while the carbon payback for all other batteries exceed one year.
  • Ability to operate at high temperatures.

ZincFive BC Series Battery Cabinet Features

  • Industry-leading safety with no thermal runaway
  • Depleted NiZn cells remain conductive, enabling reliable string operation
  • High power density in a light-weight package
  • Module level monitoring, string level management
  • Over/under current, voltage, and temp protection
  • Easy maintenance pullout battery trays
  • Seismic IBC 2018 rated, highly durable cabinet design
  • Highly effective charge control across multiple inverter platforms
