Eaton to Launch Breakthrough Lithium-Ion-Based UPS in Asia



SINGAPORE, June 22, 2017 Power management company Eaton today announced the launch of a breakthrough uninterruptible power supply (UPS) system in Asia that features long-life lithium-ion (Li-ion) batteries. Scheduled to be launched in the third quarter of 2017, the new Eaton 1500VA UPS is expected to have twice the battery life compared to that of a standard UPS system. With this new technology, customers can expect a significant reduction in the total cost of ownership of the power infrastructure of their equipment.

“The new Eaton 1500VA UPS is in a class of its own. We developed a completely differentiated solution to meet our customers’ needs, including a low-cost solution for battery replacements for those who operate in remote offices,” said Andy Low, General Manager, Distributed Power Quality Division, APAC, Eaton.

Li-ion batteries, in comparison to lead acid batteries, are less sensitive to high temperature and thus can be utilized in industrial and public transportation facilities where ambient temperatures can be high. Together with a reduced footprint, users can expect better utilization of floor space.

“The Eaton 1500VA UPS was developed in response to the industry’s acute need for such a solution. Through our conversations with industry partners and data center customers, we have heard their concerns and have responded. We are committed to continuous innovation that will meet the demands of our customers and the industry,” added Low. 

Adapting to market conditions and empowering partners to improve performance have brought Eaton praise from customers, who say they are better able to maintain their competitive edge.
Other benefits of the Eaton 1500VA UPS include:
·         Longer replacement cycle and lower weight in comparison to the traditional lead-acid batteries
·         The Li-ion batteries have a lifespan of up to eight years, compared to lead-acid batteries’ three to four years
·         The new Eaton 1U model can recharge from 0-90 percent of capacity in about 4 hours compared to the 48 hours for those operating on lead-acid batteries
