Schneider Electric UPS with Lithium-Ion Batteries
Schneider Electric UPS with Lithium-Ion Batteries can be the perfect choice for your three phase application. The Schneider Electric (Lithium-ion) battery solution for three-phase UPS is a high-value, innovative energy storage protection solution for data centers, industrial processes, and critical infrastructure. The Li-ion battery solution significantly reduces battery footprint and weight to allow more effective use of space. It also doubles battery life and simplifies maintenance compared to traditional batteries. The higher operating temperature reduces cooling requirements, and the included battery management system improves backup storage predictability and manageability, which reduces total cost of ownership. Lithium-ion batteries offer several advantages over traditional valve-regulated, lead acid batteries commonly used in UPS today.
Schneider Electric UPS With Lithium-Ion Batteries Benefits
Longer life expectancy – Lithium-ion technology can double or triple battery service life, reducing the risks of downtime or load interruption during maintenance or replacement. Lithium-Ion batteries also offer up to 10X the cycle life of VRLA batteries.
More power in less space – Lithium-ion batteries provide multiple times the energy and power density compared to VRLA. As a result, UPSs built with Li-ion batteries take up only about one-third the space of a VRLA-based solution that delivers the same power.
More forgiving in a wide range of temps – Li-ion batteries can withstand a wider temperature range than VRLA batteries.
Reduced cooling requirements and costs – The smaller footprint and wider temp range of lithium ion batteries can reduce the space needed in a battery room and increase the optimal operating temperature range.
Less weight – Lithium-ion batteries offer at least a two-thirds reduction in weight, at least. That means customers have more flexibility in terms of where they install the systems and can often avoid costly building modifications.
Battery monitoring systems included – Li-ion batteries always come with sophisticated battery monitoring systems (BMS) that provide a clear picture of battery runtime and health.
