The EnerSys PowerSafe iON 36-1800 is a new technology energy storage module that can provide higher energy density than current offerings to extend run times. The module and associated electronic control elements are intelligent to manage charge and discharge flows of energy, while reporting operating parameters and status remotely. The small size and low weight make the modules technician friendly as installation and removal can be accomplished by one technician. Low self-discharge rates and fast recharge make the modules both storage and deployment friendly, according to the company.
