EnerSys is the global leader in stored energy solutions for industrial applications. We complement EnerSys’ elite line of motive power, reserve power, aerospace/defense and specialty batteries with a full range of integrated services and systems. We also offer batteries and battery systems from many other manufacturers including FIAMM, GNB Exide, and Leoch.
GE Durathon Batteries are one of the newer battery technology in the market. The innovative design provides many advantages over traditional Lead-Acid batteries. These advantages include a longer float life than VRLA technology as well as a higher energy density without the use of harmful materials.
Nickel-Cadmium batteries are a type of rechargeable battery that uses nickel oxide hydroxide and metallic cadmium as electrodes. These types of batteries have a higher energy density compared to lead-acid batteries meaning that a smaller and lighter battery system is required to obtain the same power output as an equivalent lead-acid system. They also have a much greater lifespan and are capable of withstanding much more difficult environments then traditional VRLA batteries.
Vented Lead Acid batteries are most commonly used in central office applications or sites with a high capacity demand and a large allowable space for the battery system. 300-4000 Ah per battery equating to up to 8,000 Watts per cell. Flooded cells provide a much longer lifespan than their equivalent VRLA batteries but also require more maintenance than their VRLA counterparts.
12 Volt VRLA batteries are the optimum choice for small telecom sites or sites with a minimum allowable foot print for the back-up battery system. These types of batteries are convenient for when a system requires small upgrade in reserve capacity at around 100-200 amp-hours per string (at 48V). Power capacity can range from from 31 to 190 amp-hours per battery. A single battery rack consisting of five strings can have over 45,000 Watts of reserve power for a -48 Volt configuration. These batteries can also be easily configured into a 24 Volt configuration.
2 Volt VRLA Batteries are the optimum choice for providing back up power in small to medium size telecom sites. Batteries can be paired with their own specifically designed battery racks ranging in configurations that will allow either a +24 or -48 Volt configuration. Battery systems power capacity ranges from 105-2000 amp-hours per entire string, equating to up to 96,000 Watts of reserve power.
Batteries convert chemical energy directly into electrical energy. Batteries consist of cells that are 2 volts each. The majority of batteries used in the telecom industry are a Lead-Acid type. Lead-Acid batteries are a very inexpensive design compared to newer technologies such as Lithium-Ion. However, they have a lower energy density meaning that larger and heavier batteries are required to produce the same power as equivalent Lithium-Ion technology
