Battery manufacturer Exide Technologies has revealed ts new GNB Sprinter XP12V4400 battery at Data Centre World, which took place this week in Paris. The battery is specially designed to provide low total cost of ownership, with space savings, easy installation and maintenance, and efficient charging, the company says.
The latest Sprinter XP12V440 battery is designed to perform in the modern data centre, including large-scale colocation and hyperscale facilities. It is made from a high-purity lead alloy offering high-temperature resistance, and is a proven technology that brings peace of mind to customers. The battery saves considerably on space: up to 15–20% compared with traditional lead-acid batteries, contributing significantly to lower total cost of ownership.
With data centres worldwide moving to higher-power UPS that requires larger blocs, Sprinter XP12V4400 offers an ideal solution. Its high power, compact design and small footprint ensure consistent performance and savings in both installation and maintenance. It offers excellent charge efficiency for reduced charging cost, while its special polypropylene container reduces water vapor emissions and prolongs lifespan.
Exide will also be exhibiting its GNB Sprinter XP and XP FT (Front Terminal) ranges and Marathon M12V 190FT – all of which use AGM technology – as well as its Sonnenschein PowerCycle PC12/180FT, which uses dryfit® Gel technology. The data centre market is growing fast with the rise in social media and online streaming, and Exide believes its range of advanced products make it well placed to capitalise on future growth.
