Chennai, Sep 26 (UNI) SOCOMEC, a leading global UPS company and Numeric Power Systems, leading UPS service provider in India, tied up under the name of SOCOMEC-Numeric UPS Private Limited, is planning to launch UPS with 'Flywheel' technology in the Indian market.
Talking to newspersons here today, Copnay Managing Director R Chellapan said the flywheel UPS, which runs without battaries, stores energy in a rotor that spins up when power is applied and gradually releases it as the unit spins down when power is removed.
He said the new flywheel UPS technology would be useful to major IT, Telecommunications, Data Processing Centres, Healthcare, Banking, service and Manufacturing industries.
"Flywheels typically require only bearing replacement, a service that is less expensive than replacing batteries," he said adding "every battery is subject to a charge-discharge cycle, which considerably reduces the life of a battery." "Even though flywheel technology is a bit expensive, it will work three times higher than the conventional UPS battery," he pointed out.
"We will be launching various ranges of flywheel UPS soon in the Indian market," he said explaining that escalation in price cost continued to hit the battery market.
