Mission Critical’s 2023 Top Tier Product Awards showcase the best in data center edge technologies, generators, IT equipment, management systems, power solutions, safety, security, software, thermal management, and UPSs.
The industry has utilized lead-acid battery storage systems for decades and has incurred design compromises and infrastructure costs associated with the low power density, excessive weight, short life, limited thermal operating range, outgassing in operation, and a pollutive recycling process associated with lead-acid batteries.
Reimagining the role of data centers in the electrical grid
April 5, 2023
By enabling a bidirectional power flow, data centers can better support renewable resources and offset the cost of infrastructure upgrades by earning revenue through frequency response and other grid services.
The innovative design incorporates an embedded fuse and heater elements that provide fast response and reliable performance to interrupt the battery pack’s charging or discharging circuit before an overcharge or overheating condition occurs.
The Vertiv Liebert GXT5 Lithium-Ion UPS is engineered to protect critical network and distributed IT. It protects against the widest range of power problems and seamlessly switches to battery backup if the quality of the input power is outside of acceptable operating levels.
