Phoenix Contact Adds Wide-Temperature Range VRLA Batteries

New wide-temperature range VRLA batteries now available for Phoenix

Middletown, Pa. – Phoenix Contact has recently added a new battery to the QUINT UPS-IQ line. The valve regulated lead-acid (VRLA) battery can operate under extreme temperature shifts ranging anywhere from -40 to 60 degrees Celsius, as compared to the 0 to 40-degree range of the original VRLA battery. This new feature allows the battery to operate effectively in much harsher climates, without the concerns of frequent replacement and maintenance.

This device performs up to five times faster than the standard VRLA battery, with a five-hour buffer time in even the most taxing conditions. With pure lead absorbed glass mat (AGM) technology, the battery also safe-guards itself against acid spills in the extreme environments to which it is subject. The battery has an operational life of over ten years, depending on the conditions under which it operates.

When used in conjunction with the family of QUINT UPS-IQ products, this VRLA battery allows users to monitor other performance activities, such as the State of Charge (SOC), State of Health (SOH), and State of Function (SOF). Each state reports on different aspects of the battery, giving the user insight and foreknowledge of repair or replacement needs, before such needs even arise.
