Product description

AQ-LITH EnergyRack modular battery with a capacity of 46 kWh, for use in large homes and businesses. Thanks to the modern LiFePO4 battery chemistry, the battery requires zero maintenance and has a much longer life when compared to traditional lithium-ion or lead-acid batteries. The battery components are housed in a climate-controlled enclosure that ensures optimal working conditions. This product is the ideal solution to complement an existing solar system or provide backup power for premises with an unreliable electrical supply.

Additional specifications and description

The AQ-LITH EnergyRack is a high-quality LiFePO4 battery manufactured by the Belgian company Battery Supplies. The EnergyRack offers many benefits regardless of whether or not the business/home has a photovoltaic installation. It can both save money and provide reliable backup power during power outages.
Thanks to the server rack-style enclosure and modular design, the battery is versatile and can be adapted to best suit the specific use case. Once configured, the battery operates autonomously and is maintenance-free. The status of the device can be monitored remotely via a handy app. 
The AQ-LITH EnergyRack has a long life and is backed up by an 8-year manufacturer’s warranty.

The peak power production of a photovoltaic system may not always coincide with peak consumption. This is the case for most households and many businesses. When added to a PV system, the EnergyRack works as energy storage for the excess/unused electricity generated during the day. This stored power can then be used whenever necessary, either to supplement or completely meet the electricity demand.

For businesses/homes without solar panels, the EnergyRack can act as a large-capacity UPS in cases where frequent blackouts occur, providing power until the regular electrical supply returns. A LiFePO4 battery can be a much better option than a traditional diesel generator for businesses that cannot allow costly interruptions to their manufacturing processes.

A use case that is especially helpful for businesses is the ability to take advantage of variable electricity rates. Depending on the variability of prices during the day, the battery can charge when electricity is cheaper and discharge during the hours when it is more expensive.
The EnergyRack can also save money by smoothing out momentary spikes in consumption that might be penalised by the grid provider.
The choice of battery capacity should be determined by the so-called “base load” of the home/business. Base load is the combined power consumption of all devices that must operate without interruption, such as network servers, fridges, security systems, HVAC etc.

Construction and installation:
Each EnergyRack consists of multiple battery modules connected to a single control module. The individual modules of the battery are housed in a sturdy, climate-controlled enclosure. The unit is built similarly to a server rack and allows for the easy installation/removal of components. The battery enclosure has service doors on two sides, which makes the installation process and any subsequent servicing easy. The doors can be securely locked to prevent unauthorised access. The enclosure is thermally insulated and features a built-in DC-powered air conditioning unit. This ensures that the battery modules always operate under optimal conditions
Batteries such as the EnergyRack are only one component of the electrical supply system. As they output DC power, it is necessary to use a hybrid inverter such as the Victron MultiPlus-II, and an MPPT charge controller such as the Victron Smart Solar MPPT for PV installations. Communication between the battery and controller is done via a CAN bus protocol. The system is configured during the initial installation process, after which it will operate autonomously.
Please note that the battery requires several charge/discharge cycles before it reaches its design capacity.
