SENS and ZincFive Bring Innovative Nickel-Zinc Battery Starter Solution to Industrial Generator Starting Market

The new nickel-zinc generator starting solution offers best in class power, reliability, and service life for mission-critical back up and industrial applications.

PORTLAND, Oregon—(May, 2022)— ZincFive®, the world leader in nickel-zinc battery-based solutions for immediate power applications, and Stored Energy Systems (SENS), the leader in battery charging solutions for industrial gensets, announced a new generator starter solution featuring ZincFive’s transformational, safe, and sustainable nickel-zinc batteries.

Generators are essential for mission-critical backup applications. SENS has partnered with ZincFive to offer an innovative plug-and-play generator starter solution as a drop-in replacement option for existing field installations and new OEM generators. ZincFive’s safe and power-dense nickel-zinc battery offers unparalleled power delivery, a smaller footprint, higher reliability, lower cost, and significant sustainability advantages compared to other battery chemistries.

“We couldn’t be more excited about this partnership with ZincFive,” said Olen Scott, Chief Revenue Officer for SENS. “SENS has been supplying battery chargers to the generator market for over 50 years, and we haven’t seen a battery that comes close to ZincFive’s in terms of the amount of starting power in such a small, lightweight, green, and robust package. ZincFive’s battery is fully recyclable, made wholly from non-toxic materials, and has a much lower carbon footprint than existing technologies, further supporting our customers in their own ESG initiatives. It comes as no surprise that the response from our customer community to a greener, entirely maintenance-free engine starting module that is backed up by a full 10-year replacement warranty has been extraordinary.”

“As we continue our rapid expansion into various high-power applications – such as data center UPS – engine starting is a natural fit for the defining attributes of our battery,” said ZincFive Co-founder and CEO Tim Hysell. “SENS is a trusted leader in this segment and has been a great partner throughout the product development and testing phases of our collaboration. We have no doubt that this partnership will make nickel-zinc the preferred battery technology for generator starting.”

Demo: Achronix Speedster7t 2D NoC vs. Traditional FPGA Routing

Sponsored by Achronix

This demonstration compares an FPGA design utilizing Achronix Speedster7t 2D Network on Chip (NoC) for routing signals with the FPGA device, versus using traditional FPGA routing. The 2D NoC provides a 40% reduction in logic resources required with 40% less compile time needed versus using traditional FPGA routing. Speedster7t FPGAs are optimized for high-bandwidth workloads and eliminate the performance bottlenecks associated with traditional FPGAs.
