Exide showcases GNB Sprinter Battery

Battery manufacturer Exide Technologies, a global provider of stored electrical energy solutions, presented its new GNB Sprinter XP12V4400 battery at Data Centre World, which takes place in Paris on 27-28 November 2019. The battery is specially designed to provide low total cost of ownership, with space savings, easy installation and maintenance, and efficient charging.

The latest Sprinter XP12V440 battery is designed to perform in the modern data center, including large-scale colocation and hyperscale facilities. It is made from a high-purity lead alloy offering high-temperature resistance, and is a proven technology that brings peace of mind to customers. The battery saves considerably on space: up to 15-20% compared with traditional lead-acid batteries, contributing significantly to lower total cost of ownership.


With data centers worldwide moving to higher-power UPS that requires larger blocs, Sprinter XP12V4400 offers an ideal solution. Its high power, compact design and small footprint ensure consistent performance and savings in both installation and maintenance. It offers excellent charge efficiency for reduced charging cost, while its special polypropylene container reduces water vapor emissions and prolongs lifespan.


"Exide has a strong presence in the data center market in France, working with major UPS system manufacturers and a range of other clients," said Serge Arbes, Senior Business Director Network Power EMEA at Exide. "We look forward to speaking with new and existing customers at the event, and demonstrating how our technology can deliver within their business. Every GNB battery has been specially designed to provide the lowest total cost of ownership for a particular application, and uses technology that has been deployed in large-scale installations around the world."
