Frequently Asked Questions
Can any type of energy storage be used with your UPS systems?
A specific energy storage solution must be tested and verified by the factory before you can rely on it for proper interface and operation to our UPS systems. Do not trust a third party who may tell you otherwise.
Are there other types of energy storage products not shown on the web page?
There are numerous energy storage technologies and products on the market and our team of experts are constantly evaluating new technology. Please contact your local sales representative if you'd like to ask about something not shown on our web pages.
Aren't lithium ion batteries unsafe?
The chemistry used in our lithium ion battery solutions is not the same as the chemistry used in consumer grade products that have presented serious safety concerns. Lithium battery solution designed for Data Centre application includes not only the batteries but the battery management system and as a packaged solution are designed for safety.
Which is better - VRLA (valve regulated acid batteries) or lithium ion batteries?
There is no easy answer. It depends on your particular power system design, your needs and your goals. Please contact your local Vertiv sales office for assistance in selecting the optimal solution for your application.
