New Uptimax

Soon available!

Maintenance-free Ni-Cd battery solution with narrow DC voltage window for backup applications

The lastest generation of Uptimax nickel pocket plate battery technology is the perfect fit to replace lead-acid batteries thanks to its 1.39 V/cell single level charge.

When a fast recharge is needed, 95% State-Of-Charge (SOC) in 8h can be reached 1.45 V/cell for minimal downtime and optimal availability.

These improvements come in addition to the key existing benefits of the Uptimax range.  It combines maintenance-free* operation with total reliability for industrial backup power applications, high electrical performance, long operational life of over 20 years and a low TCO (total cost of ownership).

Vital support to critical systems 

Uptimax batteries are at the heart of power backup systems throughout the oil and gas exploration and production, utility and manufacturing industries. If main power is lost, Uptimax ensures the continuity of mission-critical loads, facilitates safe shutdown processes, bridges to standby power and safeguards computer data. Typical power backup applications include UPS, substation switchgears, process control systems, emergency lighting, fire alarms and security systems.
