Smart Battery Lives Long And Strong

XetaWave releases XetaPAK, what it calls an advanced, long lasting smart battery that represents an entirely new approach for batteries used in remote telemetry sites. As a drop-in replacement for 12 AH, 24 AH, and 100 AH lead acid batteries, the XetaPAK is lighter weight, longer lasting, higher capacity and offers monitoring capabilities not available with traditional lead acid batteries. Further, instead of being just a battery, the XetaPAK adds a MPPT (maximum power point tracking) solar panel controller, load current limiter, low voltage shutdown, battery temperature management and data logging through Modbus in one insulated package. Further, XetaPAK is invulnerable to abuse. By contrast, today's typical lead acid battery offers no ability for monitoring and needs to be replaced on a regular basis, sometimes as frequent as annually.

 

The XetaPAK is available in three versions – XetaPAK15 offers 15 amp hours (AH), XetaPAK30 35 AH, and the XetaPAK135 135 AHs. The XetaPAK135 offers 35% more capacity than 100 AH lead acid batteries. Additional information is available at http://www.xetawave.com
