Altairnano’s advanced lithium-ion battery systems are ideal for uninterruptible power supply (UPS) applications in remote, severe, or unusually challenging environments from remote cell towers to Arctic research facilities.
Uninterruptible Power. Anytime. Anywhere.
Conventional lead-acid battery technologies used for UPS systems often fail to meet the extended-life, safety, and reliability requirements for making remote UPS applications economical or feasible. These technologies are often considered intolerant to abusive conditions, such as short circuits, overcharge, over-discharge, crush, or exposure to extremely high temperatures.
Altairnano’s lithium-ion battery technology is different. Altairnano is the first company to replace traditional graphite materials used in conventional lithium-ion batteries with a proprietary, nanostructured lithium-titanate. The result produces distinctive performance attributes, including longer life cycle, low self-discharge, extremely wide operating temperature ranges, low maintenance and abuse tolerance.
Low self-discharge rates of 1 percent to 3 percent per year (compared to 1 percent to 3 percent per month for traditional lead-acid batteries)
Widest operating temperature range (between -40°C and 55°C) and highest abuse tolerance of any advanced UPS battery system available
Three times more powerful than lead-acid battery technologies with C rates between 4C and 10C
Features a 12,000 + cycle life and a 15-year calendar life
Scalable to meet different power output requirements ranging from 25 kW to multiple MWs
