Ohio-headquartered Vertiv has launched a UPS system that is compatible with lithium-ion batteries or flywheel operations.
Vertiv said its Liebert EXM 480V (50-250 kW/kVA) UPS is designed to support “mid-sized datacentres.
In addition to the battery technology, the flywheel option supports applications that need short ride-through times without using batteries, Vertiv said.
Compared to its earlier Liebert EXM UPS model, Vertiv said the new lithium-ion configured system— now available in North America— boasts “longer battery life, reduced size and weight and increased power density”.
Vertiv’s vice-president of AC power product management Kyle Keeper, said: “Adding lithium-ion capabilities to the Liebert EXM UPS system is an important new option for our customers seeking core to edge solutions.”
