Marathon FTX

Designed for durability in Telecommunications and Electric Utility applications, the GNB® Industrial Power Marathon® FTX series provides high performance and reliability in long duration discharge applications and is characterized by its excellent life time at high-temperature operation. Especially in regards to progressive network densification the high-temperature resistance of the Marathon® FTX series enables operators to minimize energy costs for cooling. Outstanding temperature robustness together with a very long design life of over 15 years helps achieving the lowest Total Cost of Ownership. The location of the terminals on the front (vs. the top) of the battery greatly facilitates the installation and maintenance of the product when placed in a cabinet enclosure or on a standard relay rack.

Features & Benefits

Emergency & Security back-up power batteries
