Latest next generation nickel-zinc battery cabinet unveiled


Nickel-zinc (NiZn) battery-based solutions provider, ZincFive, has announced the launch of the newest generation of its BC Series UPS Battery Cabinet.

ZincFive BC Series UPS Battery Cabinets were the first nickel-zinc battery energy storage solution with backward and forward compatibility with megawatt class UPS inverters. Their latest offering – the BC 2 – offers the smallest footprint per kilowatt, improving on the previous record-holder, ZincFive’s original BC battery cabinet.

In addition, ZincFive’s NiZn technology is reported to offer minimal maintenance requirements, no thermal runaway, and the higher reliability demanded for mission-critical data centres while placing an emphasis on sustainability. ZincFive’s nickel-zinc batteries have a significantly lower end-to-end climate impact than lead-acid and lithium batteries, as validated by an expert third-party analysis.

The BC 2 Battery Cabinet measures only 21 inches in width, giving it an industry-leading compact footprint. Other features include active cooling for a wide operating temperature range, simple maintenance, and easy conduit landing connections. ZincFive’s newest BC 2 Battery Cabinet provides optimised design and packaging while utilising the same reliable NiZn batteries that have been delivering best-in-class power density as well as superior safety and sustainability for over ten years. The BC 2 Battery Cabinet ships fully assembled with batteries in the cabinet and delivers a strong Total Cost of Ownership advantage for mission-critical data centres.

“ZincFive continues to innovate with our powerful, safe, and reliable nickel-zinc battery technology, and the BC 2 is a great solution to address all current and future data centre needs,” said ZincFive CEO and co-founder, Tim Hysell. “In addition, the importance of sustainability in data centre backup battery systems continues to grow. Both ZincFive and our customers are committed to reducing carbon footprint and operating costs without sacrificing safety or performance.”
