When it comes to power continuity, batteries are the weakest link in the power infrastructure chain. Relied upon to provide ride-through power for UPS systems, valve-regulated lead-acid (VRLA) batteries are unreliable, unpredictable, maintenance intensive, space intrusive, temperature sensitive and contain hazardous materials.
Using environmentally friendly energy storage from VYCON’s patented flywheel technology, the VDC-XE and the higher-current model, VDC-XE HC, are the perfect solutions for users needing a more reliable, cost-effective and greener approach to backup power in place of hazardous, leadacid based batteries used in mission-critical applications.
When it comes to mission-critical applications, power continuity is a must. VYCON’s patent pending Hybrid VDC XEB meets this requirement with a fully integrated energy storage system that provides the highest level of reliable power protection. Incorporating VYCON’s patented flywheel technology combined with batteries, the VDC XEB supports connected loads with clean backup power that is predictable and seamless.
During a power event, the flywheel provides the necessary energy to ride-through power problems, significantly increasing battery life by absorbing 98 percent of the power anomalies that would cause the batteries to be cycled. The reduction in battery usage results in fewer battery replacements and extends their useful life. For those rare occurrences where extra runtime is required, the VDC XEB intelligently “walks in” the batteries for continuous protection of critical loads.
