GS Yuasa Energy Solutions, Inc. (GYES) is featuring the SWU Series of
long life, 12-volt monobloc UPS batteries for standby applications this
week at the 7X24 Exchange Conference held at the Boca Raton Resort, Boca
Raton, Florida. These batteries are manufactured with GS Yuasa’s
proprietary HT Element X Alloy™, an alloy which
minimizes positive grid corrosion and active material plate shedding by
substantially slowing positive grid growth.
Initially available in six models, the SWU line of batteries features a
10-year design life, epoxy sealed terminals to prevent post leaks,
rugged UL 94V-0 ABS cases to minimize handling damage, plus a high gas
recombination design. All models are compliant to UL1989 and IEC
60896-21+22. Operating temperature range is -40°C to +65°C and
capacities are from 200WPC up to 600WPC @ 15-minute rate.
HT Element X Alloy™, used in the SWU product line,
is a highly purified alloy developed by the Research Engineers at GYES’s
parent company, GS Yuasa Corporation, in Japan. A key characteristic of HT
Element X Alloy™ is achieved by limiting the amount of a
previously unknown specific impurity using state of the art analysis and
control technology. Specifically engineered to minimize the negative
effects of grid corrosion, a design attribute of HT Element X Alloy™
is the use of lead that is 99.99% impurity free. This results in
extremely low float current and virtually eliminates thermal run away.
Internal testing by GS Yuasa has shown batteries made with HT
Element X Alloy™ significantly outperform competitors’
batteries in back-up applications like data centers.
GS Yuasa Energy Solutions will be featuring batteries manufactured using HT
Element X Alloy™ in booth 32 at the 7X24 Exchange
Conference held at the Boca Raton Resort, Boca Raton, Florida from June
