NorthStar Launches the SiteStar™ HiCap 2-2 -- a New Generation of Telecom Power Backup Cabinets

STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN--(Marketwire - Sep 1, 2011) - The new SiteStar™ HiCap 2-2 is the first outdoor cabinet in the telecom industry to feature two separate climate zones with individual compressor systems: one for batteries and one for DC power systems or other electronics. The separate climate zones ensure optimal operating temperatures for sensitive electronic equipment, even in high ambient temperatures, without wasting energy on unnecessary cooling.

The SiteStar™ HiCap 2-2 is the latest breakthrough from NorthStar, an industry leader in producing high-performance batteries and site solutions. The new cabinet was designed to extend the life of batteries and valuable electronics, while saving energy and lowering the total cost of ownership. SiteStar™ Technology makes this possible -- a combination of advanced components, design innovations, and state-of-the-art manufacturing processes, which include:

  • High efficiency active compressors for exceptional battery cooling and power saving
  • Swedish design and automated robotic manufacturing to ensure reliability, low weight and easy installation
  • Dust and corrosion proof design that lowers maintenance costs
  • Innovative insulation and build materials to ensure optimal battery operating conditions inside the cabinets, no matter the outside temperature
  • Compatible and verified with most standard DC power systems

SiteStar™ Technology has been implemented in a range of multi-purpose telecom site solutions, such as battery cabinets, power system cabinets and hybrid genset cabinets. The first product to use SiteStar™ Technology was the SiteStar™ Battery Cabinet, which is already being used around the world by major telecom companies.

Established in 2000, NorthStar designs and manufactures high performance lead-acid batteries and energy-saving battery cabinets. NorthStar products are specifically developed for Telecom Power Systems, Uninterruptible Power Supplies and Engine Start applications -- to provide longer battery life and a reduced environmental impact, at a lower total cost.
