Extended Runtime Solutions - External Battery Packs

For more than 30 years. Minuteman Power Technologies' leading-edge power protection products have provided the highest quality and reliability that our customers demand. After all, when mission-critical systems are reliant on Minuteman uninterruptible power supplies to provide clean, consistent power, we take that very seriously.

Downtime due to a power outage can be painful for any size business. Security systems, data centers, or telephone and communication systems must be up and running or the business is out of business. The average power outage is about 20 minutes while the average extended power outage is nearly 8 hours. These outages can be very costly to any business.

Responding to Customer Requirements

Many of our customers are choosing to extend their power back-up runtimes by adding external battery packs to their Minuteman UPSs. This provides further assurance that applications can be operational, even through lengthy power outages. Minuteman has responded to our customers' requirements by pushing the envelope on extended runtime technologies and offering solutions that are unique to the power protection market. Add that to unmatched reliability and you have a solution that makes sense for small, medium, and large businesses. To protect critical devices through extended blackouts, the Endeavor and EnterprisePlus UPS Series are able to utilize the XL and EXL Series of external battery packs that can be daisy-chained to provide virtually an unlimited amount of battery runtime.

MARKET-LEADING INNOVATIONS

Our strong pedigree in providing marketleading extended runtime solutions is unmatched. As the early pioneer in extended runtime power products, the Minuteman brand has become synonymous with providing marketleading solutions for applications requiring more back-up time than UPSs typically offer. Our fi rst extended runtime UPS was offered to the market more than 20 years ago. Since then, Minuteman's extended runtime products have carved out a reputation for reliability when reliability means the most. The XL and EXL battery packs provide additional choices for our customers with extreme runtime requirements, adding further to the Minuteman legacy of innovative product offerings.

The EXL Series of battery packs provide longer runtimes than the standard XL battery packs due to their higher VAh ratings. The EXL series does not have internal chargers in the connected UPS. However you can use a combination of XL and EXL battery packs to reduce the recharge time of the EXL battery packs while providing a more flexible runtime solution. (Example: your application requires 2 hours of runtime and the EXL battery pack selected only provides 1.5 hours of runtime.

Instead of using two EXL battery packs, which will provide three hours of runtime, you can use the EXL along with an XL battery pack to provide the other 0.5 hours of runtime. This flexible solution not only saves you money, but also speeds up the recharge time of the EXL battery packs.
