The Next Era For Standby Float

Longer life & high charge density batteries enable back-up power enhancements in critical infrastructure

This whitepaper will discuss how the PowerSafe® SBS XL 2V battery series provides customers with a compelling combination of expanded Ampere-hour (Ah) capacity, reduced footprint, convenience, and longevity, as well as the ability to repeat the duty due to fast charge capabilities. It will explain how the demands of customers involved in standby float (also known as stable grid) applications are ramping up dramatically. Details will be given on how a float charge is used to constantly maintain the batteries in a full state of charge (SoC) condition – so that they are ready to respond to any interruptions in the mains supply, should that occur, and the connected load can still be supported. Additionally, it will highlight how, in the past, it was mainly the lifespan of batteries that mattered for such applications. Now, expectations are being raised about other properties.
