EnerSys Introduces DataSafe XE Batteries


EnerSys will present its DataSafe XE batteries at Data Centre World on 15th–16th March. Specifically designed in response to the evolving requirements of today’s modern critical UPS applications, and engineered with the most advanced Thin Plate Pure Lead (TPPL) technology, DataSafe XE batteries provide high power capable of supporting short duration run times under five minutes.

DataSafe XE batteries by EnerSys are the first TPPL batteries to be specifically designed to address the evolving data centre space. The construction of the batteries is key to their unique performance. EnerSys manufactures the batteries using a highly controlled grid fabrication process for maximum consistency and advanced, high purity structural and active material for optimum conductivity, electrical performance and energy efficiency.

The Technology Behind DataSafe XE Batteries

DataSafe XE batteries with Absorbed Glass Mat (AGM) construction and TPPL technology greatly reduce both grid corrosion and grid growth common in conventional alloyed Valve Regulated Lead Acid (VRLA) batteries, providing optimum conductivity and performance. The use of high purity materials also reduces gas generation within the cell. As a result, they can operate at a higher temperature, enabling users to reduce cooling costs. The lack of impurities also improves battery shelf life by as much as four times over conventional batteries.

DataSafe XE batteries with TPPL technology pack more plates into each 2V cell, yielding greater surface area and better active materials utilisation. With this energy-dense design, smaller, lighter batteries are able to achieve the same run times as larger standard VRLA batteries with reduced recharge rates. Following a full discharge, DataSafe XE batteries can achieve 100% State of Charge (SOC) in 50% less time than conventional VRLA batteries.
