Providing reliable and cost-effective power for telecom applications is a challenge in many regions. Mobile telecom operators face rising fuel costs, increasing emission pressures and unreliable electric grids. Due to the high risk of theft of fuel and infrastructure to run base stations, many mobile and tower operators are turning to battery and hybrid solutions to improve the fuel efficiency of their diesel generators and to act as a back-up power supply.
Durathon Battery technology is one of the first batteries in the world to be designed specifically for CDC telecom applications. By using batteries as the primary energy source in a continuous charge-discharge-cycling (CDC) operating mode, fuel costs and emissions can be substantially reduced and overall system efficiency dramatically improved. With their high charge acceptance and superior cycling performance, Durathon Batteries can act as the primary energy source for telecom installations that have historically relied on diesel generators as the primary power source with batteries as the backup. Durathon Batteries are not affected by ambient temperature, so operators save money and space by removing unnecessary HVAC and complex cooling systems, making it the perfect solution for installations in extreme environments.
Durathon Batteries are ideal for back-up applications in urban centers where space is at a premium. Designed to run at 48V and constructed from abundantly available materials, individual Durathon Battery modules are inherently less attractive to thieves looking to run consumer electronics or recoup material reclamation.
