Powermode South Africa announces the immediate availability of the Q-in ionbank® range of lithium-ion battery subsystems, especially designed to work with uninterruptible power supplies (UPSs’). This is an industry first in South Africa. The Q-on ionbank® battery is designed to be a drop-in replacement of traditional lead-acid batteries. The Q-on ionbank® is compatible with most major brands of UPS and is available immediately. It can also be rolled out with a new UPS installations.
The background to this is that traditional lead-acid UPS batteries simply cannot cope with the regular cycling caused by load shedding and the ever-increasing grid unreliability. Traditional lead-acid batteries commonly used in UPS systems are designed for “standby use “ and cannot cope with this repeated cycling.
The Q-on ionbank® range of batteries is backed by a 10-year guarantee and supported by Powermode’s country-wide service network.
