Acumentrics unveils lithium ion battery packs
Acumentrics has introduced a new lithium ion battery pack to the market with the release of the Rugged Uninterruptible Power Supplies (RUPS). The system has been designed to lessen the difficult conditions soldiers face ensuring reliable power in-theater.
According to the company, dramatic weight reduction, extended run time and longer battery life mean a lighter, more powerful and mobile RUPS solution for battlefield command and control. Expressly designed to offer a lower weight profile, these new lithium ion battery packs provide a superior option to sealed lead acid batteries, which have a much lower energy density.
With the capability to supply up to 86% more energy per pound under a 2,400-watt load than the average sealed lead acid battery, the system offers longer run-time and greater life-cycle, bringing increased power to communications equipment and ISR devices in the field. These batteries offer long life, perform in extreme conditions, and remain charged during storage. This all amounts to a solid solution for rugged power supplies.
According to the company, the new battery packs can replace the company’s sealed lead acid batteries in most fielded Acumentrics RUPS products.
