Active Power Inc. (Austin TX) announced initial shipments of its next generation CleanSource dc product, CleanSource2. The new CleanSource2 reduces space requirements, temperature restrictions, battery maintenance and replacement costs while improving UPS system reliability and operational integrity.

"CleanSource2 builds on Active Power's proven flywheel technology that has demonstrated high reliability over the past four years. Faster recharge, enhanced serviceability and reduced part count for improved reliability are just a few of the improvements we have made with this new CleanSource dc system," said Joe Pinkerton, CEO and founder of Active Power. "We're delighted that our products have exceeded industry expectations and are endorsed by leading power quality consultants who are aware of the industry's reliance on problematic lead-acid batteries."
