Natron Energy introduces battery cabinet for Data Centers and mission critical applications

Natron Energy, Inc. have announced the launch of the Blue Rack™ battery cabinet, available in both 250kW and 500kW configurations.

The Blue Rack is the world’s first sodium-ion battery cabinet designed for mission-critical applications such as data centers, peak power-shaving, and other industrial power environments. Sodium-ion technology delivers tremendous power density with rapid discharge and recharge, is sustainably and ethically sourced, and is safe and completely non-flammable.

The Blue Rack is powered by Natron’s new Blue Pack© battery. “This is the longest-lasting, highest-power, and above all safest battery available for these applications,” said Robert Rogan, Chief Business Officer at Natron. “The sodium-ion technology in the Blue Rack outperforms lithium-ion and lead acid in every critical metric – especially safety.”

The Blue Rack can be configured to provide up to 500kW of backup power. Its sodium-ion technology can produce far greater maximum sustained power per energy (40W/Wh) compared to lithium-ion (10W) and lead acid (7W), and its cycle life is five times greater than lithium-ion and 50 times greater than lead acid. Sodium-ion recharges in five to 15 minutes, compared to an hour for lithium-ion and eight to 16 hours for lead acid.

Natron’s sodium-ion batteries are the safest industrial battery technology available. They are non-flammable, even when penetrated by a nail or exposed to flame. They suffer no damage or performance loss from short circuits or up to 35% overvoltage overcharge. They are the only UL listed sodium-ion battery on the market and can be shipped fully charged by ground or air, unlike either lithium-ion or lead acid.

 The Blue Pack battery’s breakthrough Prussian blue sodium-ion chemistry is sustainably and ethically sourced. Lithium mining, by contrast, has a long history of alleged human rights abuses. Prussian blue contains no rare-earth minerals, acid, or heavy metals, and Prussian blue is non-toxic, simplifying end-of-life removal. The Blue Pack and Blue Rack battery cabinet are designed specifically for mission-critical.
