Power Electronics News: 48 Volt Lithium-Ion Battery Backup Units

Green Cubes Technology has announced its Guardian family of Lithium-ion Battery Backup Units. The Guardian family of batteries are targeted at rack mount installations in the Telecom and Data Center industries.

Telecom and Data Center industries are required to operate 24 hours a day, seven days a week, to support mission critical functions. These applications require battery backup solutions that are reliable, safe and cost effective. Traditionally, when an AC grid fails, these applications rely on a centralized Uninterruptible Power Sources (UPS) that utilizes large, heavy lead-acid batteries as the power source. The Guardian family of Lithium-ion batteries from Green Cubes will support these same applications at a fraction of the weight, size and total cost of ownership.

Telecom and Data Center industries are required to operate 24 hours a day, seven days a week, to support mission critical functions. These applications require battery backup solutions that are reliable, safe and cost effective. Traditionally, when an AC grid fails, these applications rely on a centralized Uninterruptible Power Sources (UPS) that utilizes large, heavy lead-acid batteries as the power source. The Guardian family of Lithium-ion batteries from Green Cubes will support these same applications at a fraction of the weight, size and total cost of ownership. 

“Telecom service providers and data center operators supporting mission critical IT infrastructure demand batteries that perform reliably when grid power fails,” said Jeffrey VanZwol, Chief Marketing Officer of Green Cubes. “The Guardian Lithium-ion batteries provide exceptional cycle and calendar life, simplify installation, eliminate the need for maintenance, and lower the total cost ownership of a typical battery backup installation.”

The Guardian family consists of three sizes, ranging from 2 Rack Unit (RU) to 4 RU heights, fit in both 19” or 23” cabinets and support capacity ranges from 105 Ahr to 175 Ahr. The Guardian batteries provide a nominal 48 Volts output and will both charge and discharge up to 100 Amps. Each Guardian battery also contains an integrated Battery Management System (BMS), charging electronics, and proprietary Energy Balancing Technology (EBT) that enables active current control, load sharing and State of Charge balancing across connected units. All Guardian batteries have active thermal management and feature either Lithium Nickel Manganese Cobalt (NMC) and Lithium Iron Phosphate (LFP) chemistries to accommodate multiple Telecom and Data Center applications.

Founded in 1986, Green Cubes enters the Telecom and Data Center market with decades of experience producing Lithium-ion batteries, chargers, and power conversion products. Green Cubes will introduce the full family of Guardian Lithium-ion batteries at 2021 Battcon conference in Hollywood Florida on November 2-5th 2021 at Booth 524.

Power Electronics News: Avoid the Top 3 Issues UPS Designers Encounter when Upgrading to Lithium

Designing a lithium-based battery backup system for a Telecom or Data Center application presents new and different challenges compared to a traditional VRLA design. Balancing the flow of energy in and out of the battery bank is a critical design parameter. Designers must ensure that power is available under all conditions and optimize the performance of the batteries at the same time. There are 3 main issues designers encounter when designing lithium battery-based systems.

This article presents 3 common issues designers face when making the shift to lithium, and how Green Cubes has developed a patent pending Energy Balance Technology (EBT) to solve these challenges, reduce costs and optimize the use of lithium-ion batteries in UPS applications.

Data Center Dynamics: How does temperature affect your choice of Lithium UPS Battery?

Choose your chemistry wisely, to avoid thermal runaway, and get the performance you need

Industrial rack-mounted uninterruptible power supplies (UPSs) are used in data centers or telecom central offices to provide backup power for servers and switching equipment in the event of failure. Historically, these UPS’s have relied on Lead Acid as the predominant battery type. With the introduction of the Open Compute Project (OCP) initiative and hyperscale data centers, Lithium-ion batteries are gaining market share over the incumbent Lead Acid battery technology.

This article presents some of the thermal considerations and trade-offs when selecting a Lithium-ion UPS system to complement your data center equipment. There are two available chemistry options Lithium Iron Phosphate (LFP) and Lithium Nickel Manganese Cobalt Oxide (NMC). Operators need to consider expected discharge time, active versus passive cooling, options for scalability, and the expected lifetime of the batteries.

Data Center Industry News: Fork lift battery maker Green Cubes prepares to enter data center Li-ion market

Green Cubes hires experienced team in Switzerland and prepares manufacturing in Slovakia

Green Cubes, an established maker of lithium-ion batteries is planning a big expansion into digital infrastructure.

The US-based company, established in 1986, makes mobile batteries for markets including forklift trucks. Backed by new investment, it is expanding its US manufacturing and establishing new teams for development and manufacturing in Europe, with plans to launch “network power” products aimed at data centers later this year.

Charging into data centers

“We’re standing up production in Europe, and developing products,” Jeffrey VanZwol, chief marketing officer, told DCD. “When we develop solutions we try to facilitate migration from Old World power (lead acid and internal combustion) to New world Power. We feel the network power market is at the tipping point, with a high conversion rate to lithium-ion.”

green cubes

Green Cubes currently makes battery packs for forklift trucks, and for electric vehicles used in airports. It also makes battery-powered units for mobile medical terminals. In March 2020, the company had investment from JMC Capital Partners, and is using that money to expand its internal structure and develop new products, said VanZwol.

“Bloomberg predicts that by 2025, 40 percent of the data center market will use Li-ion batteries, and in hyperscale data centers penetration will be even higher, at 55 percent,” he said. “In new infrastructure, Li-ion is an equal footing for speccing out new builds.”

Green Cubes has hired thirty people in Europe, including an engineering team in Zurich, Switzerland, all of whom previously worked for Power-One, Bel Power, and ABB, said VanZwol: “The whole team has been in network power for over 10 years.” The products they eventually launch will be in rack-mounted battery backup, but no details are currently available, he said.

The forklift batteries won’t be standing still meanwhile: they will gain faster charging, embedded Internet of Things monitoring, and the ability to be charged wirelessly, said VanZwol.

Production facilities will be set up near Bratislava in Slovakia, where the data center products will be initially developed. The Slovakian operation will also make batteries from Green Cubes’ existing lines for the European market. The company is also expanding its existing facility in Kokomo Indiana, with 36,000 sq ft of new manufacturing space.

VanZwol said the factory will be up and running by the end of Q2, which should be in time to deliver the network power products, which are due in mid-2021.
