grid | Xtreme VR
Innovation meets perfection

Future-oriented innovations meet over 90 years of battery know-how. The result is a battery that combines previously seemingly incompatible properties and thus creates a new standard in battery storage technology.

The innovative energy solution sets new standards in terms of performance, quality and variety. State-of-the-art manufacturing processes, high-purity materials and the consistent improvement of all components played the most important role in the design of the grid | Xtreme VR. The result is an energy storage system that already meets future requirements today and at the same time offers the customer greatly improved performance in existing applications.

HPPL technology – the best of both worlds

The use of the pure lead to manufacture the electrodes forms the basis of the new High Performance Pure Lead (HPPL) technology. Its superior corrosion properties enable a significant reduction in electrode thickness while increasing service life. The result is a larger electrochemical reaction surface that leads the way in terms of energy and power density for lead-acid storage technologies.

With the help of state-of-the-art simulation software, the heat development could be limited to a safe level. The upper maximum value of the permissible operating temperature range was increased from 45 °C to up to 55 °C. In combination with the dimensionally stable battery container, the grid | Xtreme VR is therefore particularly suitable for use in harsh environmental conditions.

In addition, HPPL technology uses active masses with a higher density, which until now have been used exclusively for cycle-resistant lead batteries. Thus, for the first time, the innovative new HOPPECKE
grid | Xtreme VR combines properties in one series that were previously served by two different product ranges.

Innovative metal reinforcement for more dimensional stability

With the grid | Xtreme VR in the top terminal version, the optionally available and patented metal reinforcements on the end walls enable form-fitting installation with a high load level.

The clamps ensure dimensional stability regardless of time and temperature, thus enabling cost-effective standard installation in cabinets or on battery racks.

The energy density of HOPPECKE AGM batteries in comparison

Thanks to HOPPECKE’s superior HPPL pure lead technology, the grid | Xtreme VR achieves an energy density that was previously not possible.

A new production process allows the manufacture of much thinner plates. The associated increase in the number of panels ensures a significantly larger active surface, resulting in 19 % high energy densities in the same space.

Telecommunications

HOPPECKE - POWER FROM INNOVATION

In the field of telecommunications, reliable energy suppliers are needed for so-called base transceiver stations (BTS), among other things. In these mobile phone base stations, a particularly space-saving battery is preferred because it is housed in battery cabinets. Since these cabinets are located outdoors, they are constantly exposed to changing weather conditions. With the temperature-insensitive grid | Xtreme VR, we offer the perfect solution.

Data Center

HOPPECKE - POWER FROM INNOVATION

When it comes to energy storage solutions, a data centre benefits above all from the highest possible fast-charging capability and temperature resistance. Strong cooling is always associated with high costs. Here, the grid | Xtreme VR can save money by being able to be used in different temperature ranges. It is also ideally suited for short-term use, such as during power outages. Its fast, high energy availability enables secure backups during the bridging period to avoid data loss.

On the open sea, energy storage systems are preferably used for long-term applications such as emergency lighting or navigation. The optional metal reinforcement of the grid | Xtreme VR reduces box deformation to a minimum and thus improves the dimensional stability and service life of the entire battery. In addition, their high temperature resistance is an advantage due to constantly changing destinations.

Industry

HOPPECKE - POWER FROM INNOVATION

Industrial production lines require a reliable and permanent energy source to safely terminate processes in the event of a power failure. The long service life, minimal maintenance costs and temperature resistance of the grid | Xtreme VR make it the first choice in bridging time.

Hospital

HOPPECKE - POWER FROM INNOVATION

Hospitals rely on high reliability and long service life when using energy storage systems in the operating theatre. Used as an emergency power generator, the grid | Xtreme VR ensures the uninterrupted operation of life-support systems such as ventilators.
