Introducing Smart-UPSTM Lithium-Ion
There are some things your employees and customers take for granted that you never can. Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) is one of them. Whether you are protecting small networking devices, point-of-sale (POS) equipment, entry-level servers; or need protection for server rooms, wiring closets, or distributed IT, millions of IT professionals and business owners globally trust Smart-UPS™ by APC to protect their equipment and data. Now, the product trusted worldwide is available in Lithium-Ion, providing the power and network protection you expect with lower total cost of ownership (TCO) and three times the battery life from 500VA to 3000VA.
Lithium-ion, or li-ion, batteries have been used commercially for over 20 years. However, they haven’t been available for use as batteries for single-phase UPS because the necessary balance of price, energy density, power, safety, and reliability simply did not exist. Advances made in li-ion chemistries and technologies over the past ten years, many fueled by the electric vehicle industry, have made li-ion a legitimate option for UPS vendors. Now, li-ion batteries mean your critical servers, security, and communication systems will remain on during extended power outages with reduced costs to maintain them.
Compared to VRLA (valve-regulated lead-acid) batteries, li-ion batteries offer significant benefits. First, the extended life of li-ion batteries means fewer battery replacements over the life of the UPS. In some cases, it’s possible the lithium-ion batteries will never need to be replaced, meaning network downtime is drastically reduced or eliminated for battery replacement issues. Second, li-ion batteries offer significant weight and size reduction and feature as much as three times less weight compared to alternative battery options for the same amount of energy. Smart-UPS Lithium-ion Short Depth fits in both traditional and wall mount racks and is perfect for tight spaces and server cables, while also offering additional room for cable management. Third, li-ion batteries are faster charging, which can be critical in a multiple outage situation. Finally, li-ion batteries are easy to install and come with a five-year warranty on the UPS and battery.
