Based upon its proprietary battery technology, the Cat® Energy Storage Solution (ESS) is capable of covering ultra-long outages to full depth of discharge. The core system is tolerant of high temperatures and unaffected by frequent long or short power cycles. The Cat ESS provides reliable, long duration uninterruptible power for telecom BTS and microwave backhaul operations. The Cat ESS is designed to interface directly with the existing -48V DC bus and is compatible with all -48V rectifier equipment for its charging needs. It can be used with all on-grid AC power configurations either with or without an installed backup generator set.
|Rated Power||0.75 kW to 4.5 kW 0.75 kW to 4.5 kW||More Less|
|Energy Storage||Zinc-air cells Zinc-air cells||More Less|
|Application||Targeted at telecom applications with poor, erratic electrical service that consists of random, non-scheduled outages. Typical applications include peak shaving, load shifting, and backup power applications.

Energy storage, electronics, and software developed on a single platform to maximize integration between components.
Over 35,000 batteries are deployed with telecom customers, setting new reliability levels.
No lead is used in manufacture of the energy storage cells. The ESS operates in a broad temperature range (up to 50°C) without the need for additional cooling.
4 to 20 hour discharge capability enables energy storage systems to meet any telecom environment and power challenge.
Module architecture makes it possible to scale energy and power capabilities to meet future site load growth.
The Cat ESS cell life is unaffected by high temperatures. There are no depth of discharge or cycle life limitations on the service intervals for the system.
There is no theft value of the equipment in the system. Cells will not operate when removed from the system and contain no valuable material.
Full site performance and site reporting is available; provides critical information on the installation, including total site availability, equipment status, and utility performance.
