Exide Technologies, supplier of energy storage solutions for stationary applications, announced it is launching a new Sprinter Pure Power battery range. Specifically developed for use in data center UPS, this latest generation of advanced AGM batteries also serves a broad variety of other applications, the company said.
Sprinter Pure Power also provides great opportunities in applications such as UPS-as-a-Reserve (UPSaaR) and Distributed Energy Resources (DER), as-well as grid service provided by operators in various industries, according to Exide.
Sprinter Pure Power batteries are designed to provide maximum reliability, durability and performance in modern data centers, including large-scale colocation and hyperscale facilities, Exide said.
They are made in Europe on brand new and fully automated, state-of-the-art production lines fully dedicated to pure lead AGM, with quality controls at each stage of the production.
They are made with pure lead electrodes, offering the highest power, corrosion resistance and high-temperature operation, allowing significant savings on air-conditioning, which will result in considerably reduced CO2-emissions and substantial energy savings, the company added.
Compared to traditional AGM batteries, Exide said Sprinter Pure Power provide a significant reduction of the data center total cost of ownership (TCO), thanks to 20% more power at high-rate discharge, 15-20% space saving, >12 years design life (Eurobat classification) and reduced charging cost due to their excellent charge efficiency. The thin plate design of Sprinter Pure Power ensures maximum energy transfer, and the special polypropylene container reduces water vapor emissions and prolongs the maintenance-free service life.
“These most advanced pure lead AGM batteries for UPS and data center applications are produced on fully automated manufacturing lines, with systemic quality controls at each stage of the production,” said Serge Arbes, senior business director global energy solutions at Exide Technologies. “Thanks to its closed-loop recycling, and the use of solar energy from one of the biggest solar farms with energy storage in Europe, the Sprinter Pure Power has the smallest possible CO2 footprint.”
