EnerSys® (NYSE:ENS), the global leader in stored energy solutions for industrial applications, today announced the launch of its DPX Distributed Power Transport System featuring the company's new EnShieldtm technology, at Mobile World Congress Las Vegas 2023. The EnShieldtm technology applies the Fault Managed Power standard to minimize the time-consuming and expensive connections to the electrical grid when deploying outdoor small cells. The DPX system eliminates many of the hurdles linked to permitting and logistics for power connections. The DPX Distributed Power Transport System is being featured in the EnerSys booth, #818, at the Mobile World Congress being held at the Las Vegas Convention Center, September 26-28.
"DPX enables operators to accelerate 5G deployment and, in turn, expedite revenues for their 5G service," said Drew Zogby, President Energy Systems Global. "5G small cell deployment is often delayed or not economically feasible because providing power to each small cell requires a permit as well as coordination with the electrical utility. Our DPX solution addresses these hurdles by using a single grid tap to power up to 10 small cell nodes."
The DPX Distributed Power Transport System supplies power to 5G small cells located up to 1 mile away. A single DPX system installation can energize up to 10 nodes that are using higher power small cell radios, or up to 40 nodes using low power radios. The system supplies significantly more power than traditional remote power systems, while strictly complying with industry standards that emphasize technician safety. The DPX system is now in trial mode and being evaluated by major operators. It is expected to be commercially available in 2024.
