EnerSys expands backup power solutions with PowerSafe OGi batteries



January 4, 2017 – EnerSys, a provider of stored energy solutions for industrial applications, has expanded its line of backup power solutions for the utility and renewable energy industries with PowerSafe OGi batteries.

The multi-cell design reduces the rack footprint and is ideal for tight space requirements, such as in standby float applications, the company notes.
    
PowerSafe OGi batteries feature extended posts for easier measurement access and high-impact, clear plastic containers for internal inspection. Also, the company says its “low-antimony alloy plates provide improved cycling performance over traditional lead-calcium batteries and extend watering intervals approaching the levels of typical calcium cells.”

The vented lead acid batteries are available from 56Ah to 280Ah and are sold in 6V and 12V blocs arranged in three-cell and six-cell configurations. The batteries are designed to be compliant with DIN-40737-3 and IEC 60896-11 standards.
