- International launch of a disruptive technology for Telecom & Back Up applications
- Specific range of 10 years life battery for the Middle East market
United Arab Emirates, 2017 - ARTS Energy will participate for the first time at GITEX, in view of the worldwide introduction of its innovative Ni-MH global solution for Telecom & Back up. ARTS Energy has become an expert of the middle east region for solar applications and is back to present new products and battery solutions for Telecom & Back Up, and particularly robust and long life Ni-MH in hot climates.
This new product is clearly a technological breakthrough and is the fruit of a two years R&D program including three partners:
ARTS Energy has developed a new Ni-MH battery called ENDURANCE with high robustness and long life duration at high temperature.
Alpha Innovations has developed a new rectifier to manage the Ni-MH battery, and with dedicated components compatible with extreme temperatures.
Grolleau has developed a new outdoor energy enclosure dedicated to hot climates
Their new Telecom & Back Up cabinet, dedicated to hot environments and climates, is the first offering the following benefits:
- No need for air conditioning - energy saving
- Excellent behavior up to 70°C
- Compact product
- Long life duration - 5 to 10 years in the middle-East
- Attractive TCO - Total Cost of ownership -
Considering Telecom and Back Up applications, energy cabinets are generally equipped with lead-acid batteries offering acceptable life duration (around 5 years) in moderate climates (Europe, USA, Asia). But in hot climates (Africa, middle-East, South America), those lead-acid batteries delivers poor life duration (sometimes less than one year) even if the energy cabinet is equipped with air conditioning. Consequently, in such areas, the cost for the battery maintenance (replacing the battery) becomes much higher compared to the cost of the initial battery delivered with the Telecom & Back Up cabinet. Additionally, waiting for the lead-acid battery to be replaced with a fresh one, the cost of “non-operational” network is high, mainly in the field of Telecom.
Many Telecom operators have measured the extra-cost generated by poor life duration of lead-acid batteries in hot climates, and are looking for alternative battery technologies since a few years. But as the energy cabinets are equipped with a lead-acid rectifier, it is not possible to remove the lead-acid battery and replace it with a Ni-MH or Li-ion battery. Charge management of the battery is different.
ARTS Energy will be happy to meet local partners and present new innovative solutions during GITEX 2017, located at Hall 4, Booth C4-37
