Both the Florida and Texas DOT’s are nationally recognized for their leadership in safe and efficient transportation and are among the largest and most influential DOT’s in the nation. Both states had previously added the UPStealth product line to their approved lists and are now building on this with the addition of the next generation UPStealth 2 to their roster.

Jeff McAleer, VP Sales, Transportation, for ZincFive, said: “We’re delighted that ZincFive’s UPStealth 2 product line and full suite of battery options have been added to the approved product lists for both Texas and Florida’s Departments of Transportation. The UPStealth 2 has successfully gone through rigorous qualification testing and been approved at leading, forward thinking DOTs across the country including FDOT, TxDOT and Caltrans, highlighting the quality, safety and environmental value they get from our nickel-zinc battery-based UPS solution.”

The UPStealth 2 offers a safer, greener and smarter alternative to traditional lead-acid battery-based UPS solutions.  ZincFive’s patented nickel-zinc batteries offer longer life, innovative form factors, safer operation and environmental advantages over lead-acid battery technology.  In addition to taking full advantage of the properties of nickel-zinc batteries the UPStealth 2 offers performance features not seen before in this class of UPS.  Groundbreaking features of the UPStealth 2 include active power supervision through an oscilloscope function, accomplished by constantly monitoring and capturing the incoming utility AC power as well as the ability to hot-swap batteries during a power outage to increase intersection uptime.
