California-based supplier of UPS and backup power systems Falcon Electric Inc has announced the addition of a lithium iron phosphate (LiFePO4) battery option to its SSG Industrial UPS family.
Falcon said its SSG UPS “with a hot-swap LiFePO4 battery represents a technology game-changer with many user benefits”.
The online rackmount UPS models (1.5 to 6kVA) provide a longer service life, longer backup times, lower weight and higher safety than UPS’s with lead-acid batteries or other LiFePO4 batteries, the company said.
Falcon said its SSG 1.5 kVA Industrial UPS with a LiFePO4 battery features three times longer battery runtime than a lead-acid equivalent, in addition to 44% less weight at 13.9 pounds compared to 24.9 pounds.
According to Falcon, the SSG UPS lowers total cost of ownership “by dramatically reducing costly battery replacements and downtime”.
