Vertiv, a global provider of critical digital infrastructure and continuity solutions, has announced the availability of single phase uninterruptible power supply (UPS) systems with lithium-ion battery models, expanding its portfolio of line-interactive UPS. With capacities ranging from 1500 – 3000VA in tower and rack-mount convertible designs, the highly-efficient single-phase Vertiv Edge Lithium-Ion UPS family is now available across Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA).
Thanks to their lower maintenance requirements, lithium-ion batteries (also known as Li-ion or LIB) are a natural fit for deployments at the Edge of the network, where IT support is limited. Compared with valve-regulated lead acid (VRLA) batteries, lithium-ion batteries have up to three times longer life, which improves total cost of ownership (TCO). The Vertiv Edge Lithium-Ion UPS family provides up to 10 minutes of battery backup at full load, as opposed to approximately 4-5 minutes for a standard UPS with VRLA batteries.
“As digitalisation increases, many applications are moving to the Edge of the network and require reliable power protection,” said Karsten Winther, Vice President sales for Vertiv in EMEA. “UPS systems with lithium-ion batteries offer cost and operation benefits, and also reduce the need for on-site maintenance. Ultimately this means more stability and savings for critical edge deployments, and a wider range of options for our customers.”
The Vertiv Edge Lithium-Ion UPS is ideal for Edge Computing sites and for healthcare, banking, education, retail and government applications. It comes with a standard five-year warranty on the electronics and battery. The system can be integrated with the Vertiv VR Rack for a standardised IT infrastructure solution that can be easily deployed across various edge locations.Click below to share this article
