LOUISVILLE, Colo., April 26, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- XetaWave, a Colorado-based wireless technology provider, today announced the release of XetaPAK, an advanced, long lasting smart battery that represents an entirely new approach for batteries used in remote telemetry sites.
As a drop-in replacement for 12 AH, 24 AH, and 100 AH lead acid batteries, the XetaPAK is lighter weight, longer lasting, higher capacity and offers monitoring capabilities not available with traditional lead acid batteries. Further, instead of being just a battery, the XetaPAK adds a MPPT (maximum power point tracking) solar panel controller, load current limiter, low voltage shutdown, battery temperature management and data logging through Modbus all in one insulated package. Further, the XetaPAK offers unsurpassed reliability, is invulnerable to abuse, and has a very long life. By contrast, today's typical lead acid battery offers no ability for monitoring and needs to be replaced on a regular basis, sometimes as frequent as annually, requiring the costly deployment of field resources and the cost of repeated purchases.
Jonathan Sawyer, XetaWave CEO/CTO, commented, "There has long been a need for a replacement to lead acid batteries. The XetaPAK is the industry's most advanced battery management system. It is the only product that combines solar charging, thermal management and fault protection with Modbus data logging."
The XetaPAK is available in three versions – XetaPAK15 offers 15 amp hours (AH), XetaPAK30 35 AH, and the XetaPAK135 135 AHs. The XetaPAK135 offers 35% more capacity than 100 AH lead acid batteries. XetaWave is exhibiting at ENTELEC, exhibit No. 238, in Houston, April 26-27, 2017. Additional information is available at www.xetawave.com.
