Lithium Ion Batteries for Large, Three Phase UPS:
Comparing Lithium-Ion Batteries to VRLA
Historically, Lithium-Ion batteries have been considered too expensive and not safe enough for use in enterprise UPS applications despite their smaller size and longer life span compared to VRLA batteries. However, recent innovations in the manufacturing of Lithium-Ion batteries for UPS have made them less expensive and reduced the risk of thermal runaway to virtually impossible.
The lower costs and enhanced safety features make Lithium-Ion batteries a practical choice for some large enterprise 3-Phase UPS applications, especially when considering the total cost of ownership of a UPS system.
How do Lithium-Ion Batteries compare to VRLA Batteries for enterprise
3-Phase UPS systems?
- Longer life expectancy
- More power in less space
- More forgiving in a wide range of temps
- Reduced cooling requirements and costs
- Less weight
- Battery monitoring systems included
