Nickel Zinc and the UPStealth Battery Backup System:
PSI is a traffic cabinet manufacturing company who is the innovator of the UPStealth Battery Backup System. The company has a long history and extensive knowledge in Lead Acid Battery Backup Systems. PSI spent a considerable amount of time and research choosing the best rechargeable battery chemistry for the Traffic Industry. As a result Nickel Zinc (NiZn) was chosen for its:
- High energy density and performance
- Environmentally friendly materials
- Durability and overall safety of the cells
- Life, which should last twice as long as Lead Acid Batteries
NiZn batteries have no transportation restrictions, are certified as recyclable by the Rechargeable Battery Recycling Coalition, and are RoHS Compliant. There are no restrictions with regard to the disposal of expired cells. NiZn batteries will not explode, catch fire, nor outgas hazardous fumes even when abused. In addition, the NiZn rechargeable chemistry does not dissipate any significant heat.
PSI Acquisition, LLC has developed the solution to Battery Backup System problems.
A major problem with nearly all Transportation Cabinets is limited or no space available for installing a Battery Backup System (BBS). Most agencies are forced to pay for an expensive external enclosure or piggy-back cabinet to provide battery back-up for their cities. In addition, the Lead Acid batteries currently used in Battery Backups and other UPS systems are large, heavy, and contain dangerous chemicals which, prior to disposal, require special handling. Most Lead Acid Battery Backup Systems need costly routine maintenance 2-3 times per year. If the routine maintenance is neglected, agencies are exposed to potential liability issues.
Utilizing the small, lightweight form factor that NiZn cells provide, PSI Acquisition LLC manufactures a family of products with a unique Battery Pack Panel called The UltraPower-Stealth Battery Backup System (UPStealth). This innovative Battery Backup System can be configured to almost any shape to fit into spaces and locations inside Transportation Cabinets not accessible by Lead Acid products.
Our UPStealth flexible panels fit into the Transportation Cabinet’s unused space between the internal rack and the outside shell of the cabinet. The “332-170” battery panels series configuration does not take up any rack space thus eliminating the need for an expensive external cabinet.
In addition, for NEMA Cabinet users, the innovative UPStealth Shelf Panel can be mounted on the top or underside of the NEMA cabinet shelf. A rack mount version is also available for other Transportation Cabinets.
