EnerSys® has introduced DataSafe® XE batteries, specifically designed in response to the evolving requirements of today’s modern critical UPS applications. Engineered with the most advanced Thin Plate Pure Lead (TPPL) technology and superior manufacturing processes, DataSafe® XE batteries provide high power, capable of supporting short duration runtimes under five minutes.

DataSafe® XE batteries by EnerSys are the first TPPL batteries to be specifically designed to address the evolving data center space. The construction of the batteries is key to their unique performance. EnerSys manufactures DataSafe® XE 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.

DataSafe® XE batteries with Absorbed Glass Mat (AGM) construction and TPPL technology greatly reduce both grid corrosion and grid growth common in conventional alloyed lead acid batteries, providing optimum conductivity and performance. The use of high purity materials also reduces gas generation within the cell. As a result, DataSafe® XE batteries have an extended operating temperature range of -40°F (-40°C) to 122°F (50°C) enabling users to reduce cooling costs. The lack of impurities also improves battery shelf life by as much as three times over conventional batteries.

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