Safe, eco-friendly battery technology

15 May 2019

The engineers at Fortress Power announce the New Generation of its eVault battery (G2LFP-15kWh). Fortress eVault series uses Lithium-Ferro-Phosphate technology instead of Lithium-Nickel-Manganese-Cobalt (LNMC), which is a safe, eco-friendly technology offering better operating temperature, significantly more life cycles, and a high peak power output. The new battery is user friendly with a front display showing the State of Charge (SoC) and the battery voltage. The battery is compact and can be stacked 5 in parallel, to achieve 75kWh. Each battery communicates with each other via RS-485 cable to balance the charging capacity when they are connected in parallel.  These new units will be available in November. All Fortress batteries have a 10-year warranty with 6000 cycles. The batteries are designed to work with commonly used 48V chargers/inverters such as Schneider, Outback, Magnum, Darfon, and SMA among others. The long cycles enable Fortress batteries to support backup, time-of-use, self-use, and off-grid applications. Currently Fortress offers 10 and 15kWh in North America, which are scalable to 20 and 30kWh.
