AJ Power Source’s Powergrid™ Military grade UPS range utilises advanced Lithium Iron Phosphate ( LifePO4) batteries. Their proprietary ColdPak ™ battery design reduces the overall weight of the end equipment and provides significant advancements in technology.
They incorporate no hazardous materials so are therefore eco-friendly unlike many other battery chemistries utilised elsewhere.
The shelf life is estimated as being between 10 to 20 years either charged or uncharged and are rated “conservatively” for over 2500 charge/ recharge cycles. They also exhibit a very high level of thermal and chemical stability which eliminates the potential of ignition or thermal runaway.
Advantages of the Powergrid™ ColdPak™ battery design are multiple.
Lightweight – 5 times lighter that Lead Acid alternatives
Efficient – less than 10 °C rise over ambient, on discharge compared to an average of 50 °C for other chemistries.
Consistent – constant discharge voltage gives longer hold times, fewer batteries and less loss due to voltage regulation.
Reliable – long life cycle with no memory fade
Safe – thermal and chemical stability means no ignition, or thermal runaway, no decomposition at high temp, and no caustic or hazardous materials.
Ready – Exceedingly long shelf life means units can sit in storage for long periods and remain deployment ready.
