Murata Manufacturing Co., Ltd. has developed the MH1701, a FORTELION high-output battery module that is ideal for industrial equipment requiring high output such as uninterruptible power supply (UPS) devices and instantaneous voltage drop compensators, and plans to begin mass production in August. This module is equipped with “FORTELION,” Murata’s proprietary lithium-ion secondary battery, which uses olivine-type lithium iron phosphate as the cathode material and combines long life with an exceptionally high level of safety.
In recent years, in keeping with the progress of IoT (the Internet of Things), the use of electronic control devices has grown and a more stable power supply is required than before at data centers and factories where precision equipment is manufactured. Accordingly, operators of such facilities have expanded their use of UPS and Ancillary Service in the interests of ensuring stable power supplies in the event of power outages. Conventionally, these devices are equipped with lead-acid batteries, but in view of issues such as short battery life, there is an increasing need to replace them with lithium-ion secondary batteries which feature longer battery life as well as space-saving and weight-saving capabilities.
In response to these needs, Murata has developed this high output battery module that features FORTELION’s sophisticated input-output characteristics, a high level of safety, and longer battery life.
