Exide Technologies announced the introduction of its new GNB® Wrapped Positive Plate PWQ battery. The PWQ joins the existing PDQ battery in the company's Flooded Classic line of large Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) batteries.

The new PWQ is designed to deliver emergency power to critical computer data center facilities and utility power plant auxiliary equipment. The wrapped separator configuration in the battery is accepted in the industry as a premium feature which is designed to lengthen service life. The new PWQ features: 100% 'out-of-box' initial capacity performance. Lead calcium grids optimized for high rate, short duration, constant power discharges. Terminal posts with copper inserts to lower resistance under high rate conditions. Precision machined terminals which enhance post seal reliability. Optional flame retardant plastics.

STILL Selects GNB's Tensor Batteries Following Extensive Trial

STILL has selected TENSOR batteries for a large new fleet change underway at a major logistics firm. Following a successful six-month trial, the customer will switch from gas-powered to electric forklifts, making impressive year-over-year cost savings. Exide Technologies will supply more than 220 of its (80V, 840Ah) GNB-branded TENSOR batteries as part of the deal, one of the big European fleet changes in recent years. Prior to the new contract, the logistics company was operating LPG-powered counterbalance trucks and was looking to reduce its carbon footprint. The switch to STILL RX60 electric counterbalance trucks helped it to lower its CO2 emissions. The company can now also operate around the clock while maintaining required productivity levels. TENSOR is a high-performance battery with formidable power density and energy content. Designed for fast recharging, it allows the logistics company to increase uptime and get the most out of its investment. High energy efficiency means ongoing reductions in energy consumption, while the low operating temperature leads to longer operational life. The switch to TENSOR will significantly reduce CO2 emissions and help the company achieve its annual environmental targets.
