The capacitor-based, dual-layer batteries from the QUINT UPS-IQ line is similar to the lithium-ion battery introduced earlier this year, but the capacitor battery has a longer lifespan and wider temperature range than the original valve-regulated lead acid (VRLA) battery.
This capacitor-based energy storage can operate between -20 and 60 degrees Celsius. It has an operational lifespan of up to 20 years based upon the ambient conditions.
The original battery is rated for use between temperatures of 0 to 40 C before experiencing severe derating and operational issues. Using the capacitor battery reduces the need to replace the batteries frequently.
This series provides intelligent battery backup in mission-critical systems that require an uninterruptible power supply. Users can gain additional visibility into the performance behavior of the capacitors, including:
- State of Charge (SOC): Indicates the remaining backup time and level of charge on the battery
- State of Health (SOH): Indicates the remaining service life of the battery module(s)
- State of Function (SOF): Indicates the capacity of the battery module(s)
