23.3.2006: Meldung: Active Power Receives UL Certification
CoolAir DC, based upon Active Power"s proprietary thermal and compressed air storage (TACAS) technology, is the first minute-for-minute alternative to batteries commercially available to the Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) market. Using thermal energy and breathable room air to provide power, a single CoolAir DC unit can provide 85kW of power for up to 15 minutes and, simultaneously, produce cool air to mitigate heat buildup in the protected environment. CoolAir DC connects directly to the DC bus or rectifier of a double-conversion UPS, similar to a battery.
"Certification by Underwriters Laboratories is a significant milestone for the CoolAir DC product family," said David Beatty, Vice President of Engineering for Active Power. "Not only has the product undergone the stringent safety certification process required by Underwriters Laboratories, but it also demonstrates that the product is ready for production." The UL Certification includes Models CA-85, CA-68, CA-42, and CA-34.
Well-known as a pioneer in the flywheel energy storage realm, Active Power developed this new TACAS technology to provide an alternative to the inherently unreliable and maintenance intensive lead-acid batteries typically used in UPS installations. With the addition of CoolAir DC, Active Power now offers the broadest battery-free backup power solution set in the world.
