The advantages of using lithium-ion batteries in single phase UPS applications for edge data centers

How branch offices, server rooms, and network closets can benefit from using Lithium-Ion Battery systems?

In today's digital age, businesses rely heavily on technology and data centers to operate efficiently. This means that downtime and disruptions can be costly, which is why reliable and efficient backup power solutions are essential. One such solution is using lithium-ion batteries in single-phase UPS applications, particularly for edge data centers. In this blog post, we will explore the advantages of using VERTIV solutions for this purpose and how it can benefit your business.

Advantages of Using Lithium-ion Batteries in Single-Phase UPS Applications

  1. Longer Battery Life: Lithium-ion batteries offer a longer lifespan than traditional valve-regulated lead-acid (VRLA) batteries, reducing the need for frequent replacements, and lowering costs. Lithium-ion batteries can also hold a charge for a longer period of time, allowing for prolonged backup power during an outage.
  2. Smaller Footprint: Lithium-ion batteries are smaller in size and weight than VRLA batteries, making them ideal for compact single-phase UPS applications in edge data centers. They require less space and can be easily integrated into existing systems, saving valuable floor space and reducing installation costs.
  3. Increased Efficiency: Lithium-ion batteries are highly efficient, with a faster charging time and less energy wasted in heat, reducing the total cost of ownership. This translates to reduced cooling requirements and lower energy consumption, which results in a more sustainable and cost-effective solution.
  4. Improved Reliability: Lithium-ion batteries have a lower risk of failure and are more resistant to damage from heat, cold, and other environmental factors, ensuring that backup power is available when needed. This increased reliability minimizes the risk of downtime, data loss, and costly repairs.
