Falcon Electric, Inc. has added Lithium-Ion batteries as an option to the 1500-VA model of its SSG Series Industrial Grade UPS Plus. Lithium-ion chemistry offers several advantages over valve regulated lead-acid (VRLA) batteries including less weight, longer run times, and higher energy density. The SSG Series is a true double-conversion on-line sine wave regenerative UPS that is an advanced, robust, and rugged solution that provides military, aerospace, and industrial applications with a high level of power protection that tolerates many of the elements found in these harsh environments.
Due to its rugged design, the U.L. listed SSG Series is capable of withstanding elevated temperatures of up to 131ºF (55º C). The SSG Series, which is available in 1,500, 2,200, and 3,000-VA configurations, can be placed in an equipment rack or installed as a stand-alone tower in close proximity to the critical load. The SSG Series is designed to provide users with an improved level of battery monitoring and replacement notification, as well as user-friendly, hot-swappable battery packs. Slide-out battery packs are easily replaced through the UPS front panel, without having to remove the UPS from the equipment rack, eliminating the handling of individual batteries and the associated wiring hassles.
