For a long time, Lithium-Ion batteries were known for powering things like cell phones, laptops and other digital devices. As the technology has grown, we see them in more and more industrial spaces every year.
Today, we’re going to discuss why that is. How come industrial companies are leaning lithium-ion? Should you consider the same? Let’s answer both questions!
Look, manufacturing is all about doing more with less and one of the things you don’t have to worry about is the lifespan of a lithium-ion industrial UPS Battery. Compared to your more traditional VRLA batteries that lives in the 3-5 year range – lithium ion batteries last 8-10 years, sometimes longer so long as they’re being maintained properly.
Resilient to high temperatures
Lithium ion batteries in an industrial setting can be exposed to higher temperatures than most. While certain types of batteries made more for server rooms can experience issues when you get out of the 70-degree range, Lithium Ion batteries can operate normally up to 104 degrees without sacrificing much in the way of performance. They’re a boon to businesses that operate in extreme, non-traditional settings and facilities that lack a lot of cooling space.
Lower cost of ownership
Longer lifespan, increased durability – that usually equates to a lower cost. In fact, the average cost savings is almost 50% relative to other forms of industrial UPS batteries. That’s also factoring in installation fees and the lower maintenance cost associated with ownership. While other batteries can certainly save you more money up-front; Lithium-Ion batteries are a superior investment in the long-run.
Control and management
A lot of lithium-ion batteries come with digital integration- meaning you can actually manage the battery. This gives you a clearer picture of the overall health of the battery as well and protecting cells against excess current, temperature or over/under charging.
