Uptimax

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.

Uptimax Ni-Cd battery: maintenance-free solution for backup power applications

Uptimax is Saft’s latest nickel pocket plate battery technology. It combines maintenance-free* operation with total reliability for industrial installations. Key features include its low-pressure flame arresting vent, improved electrical performance and enhanced chargeability, and over its lifetime Uptimax has a low TCO (total cost of ownership). 

* The term maintenance-free means that no addition of water is necessary during the life time of the product when operating under Saft’s recommended conditions.
