CUBE Site Support Battery Backup Cabinets

CUBE BBU cabinets are ideally suited for cell sites and other outdoor environments when a large amount of battery backup time is required. Multiple BBU cabinets can be combined to achieve an even greater amount of battery backup time. BBU cabinets can be installed adjacent to or remotely from Charles Pad Mount Equipment Cabinet (CUBE-PM639) or Site Support (CUBE-SS) cabinet.

Charles offers a variety of configurations of battery cabinets including solutions for 12V monoblock and 2V batteries
