Valence Technology Obtains NEBS Battery Certification

Valence Technology Inc.’s K-Charge Power System has achieved Network Equipment Building System (NEBS) Level 3 certification. Major telecommunications carriers demand NEBS Level 3 certification to ensure that products meet carrier class standards for safety, reliability and compatibility with their existing equipment.

“Achieving NEBS certification confirms the safety and robust performance of our K-Charge Power System for telecommunications back-up power applications,” said Stephan Godevais, chairman and CEO of Valence. “At twice the performance and two-thirds the weight of comparable lead-acid systems, the K-Charge Power System offers a compelling value proposition by dramatically reducing the overall cost of ownership and maintenance requirements for telecommunications and utility customers.”

In June this year, Valence Technology signed an agreement granting Tyco Electronics Power Systems Inc. the exclusive right to resell Valence’s K-Charge Power System to Tyco Electronics’ telecommunications and utility customers for a period of three years. The K-Charge system will be marketed by Tyco Electronics under the ELiTE RK brand name. Under the agreement, Tyco Electronics will provide sales and marketing, technical assistance and customer support functions.
