Alpharetta, Ga.-based Exide Technologies, a provider of stored electrical-energy solutions, has introduced the Absolyte GP, the company's latest addition to its standby power product family of valve-regulated, network power batteries.

Engineered, marketed and sold by Exide's GNB Industrial Power Business, the Absolyte GP incorporates a technologically and environmentally advanced design that delivers a 20-year design life with enhanced cycling performance that can be used to support photovoltaic, wind turbine and other renewable energy initiatives.

The Absolyte GP is designed to support a wide range of network power applications, including telecommunications, uninterrupted power supply, alternative energy, outside plant, railway and utility/switchgear. Manufactured in Fort Smith, Ark., the Absolyte GP will be a direct replacement for the Absolyte IIP.

According to the company, the improved design of the Absolyte GP offers a number of additional environmental benefits, including a 75% lower float current, compared to previous generation products, that will result in reduced energy consumption and reduced heat generation.

"The Exide Absolyte GP valve-regulated battery truly represents an evolution in lead-acid storage technology, responding to the needs of our industrial energy customers who require increased reliability and superior performance, while at the same time meeting their goals for sustainability," says Mitch Bregman, president of Exide Technologies Industrial Energy Americas.
