Ultima.plus Nickel-cadmium batteries
Saft’s Ultima.plus battery has been designed to fulfil the demanding requirements of remote or outside telecom plants: local or access terminals, Base Transceiver Stations, Base Station Controllers, Optical Node Units, etc... Ultima.plus delivers long life and requires minimal maintenance, even when operating in harsh environments, with high temperatures, which rapidly expose the failures of Valve Regulated Lead Acid (VRLA) technology.
Intrinsic and field-proven reliability
Thanks to a 100 year established pocket plate design, coupled with Saft’s innovative flooded recombination technology, Ultima.plus offers superior performance. By the use of its free electrolyte reserves and an oxygen recombination level higher than 80%. Ultima.plus completely eliminates the risk of thermal runaway, while at the same time remains virtually maintenance free. Ultima.plus does not suffer sudden death failure. It will survive abuses, including overcharging, deep discharging, and high ripple currents, which would destroy a Valve Regulated Lead Acid battery.
Very low life cycle cost
Thanks to its long life, Ultima.plus reveals itself as a good investment. Very low maintenance and high reliability contribute to remarkable life cycle cost reduction. At the end of the day, lower operating costs and less down time can be expected.
A typical 48 V telecom application needs 38 to 39 cells connected in series depending on the load voltage window. Thanks to tailored cell layouts, the Ultima.plus battery adjusts to available space. It can replace lead acid batteries without any modification of the charging equipment.
