Australian energy storage specialist Redflow Limited today announces that it has extended the warranty for its 10 kilowatt hour (kWh) ZBM2 and ZCell zinc-bromine flow batteries to 10 years.
Previously, Redflow warranted the electrode stack in its batteries for 10 years or 36,500 kilowatt hour (kWh) output, whichever came first, and for three years for auxiliary components such as electrolyte tanks and pumps.
Redflow’s entire battery is now covered by the 10-year/36,500kWh warranty, which aligns it with emerging industry standard warranties for residential and commercial energy storage systems.
Redflow CEO Simon Hackett said the 10-year warranty showed the company’s commitment to quality. “This assures customers that Redflow batteries are a long-term proposition,” he said.
“What makes Redflow’s 10-year warranty such outstanding value is that our zinc-bromine flow batteries sustain their 10 kWh of storage capacity for that entire 10 years, rather than losing capacity over time, as occurs with lithium-based and lead-acid batteries.”
‘Security fatigue’ is a growing threat to protecting identities and confidential information for businesses and individuals warns Centrify, the leader in securing enterprise identities against cyberthreats.
Centrify’s Senior Director APAC Sales Niall King said ‘security fatigue’ was a form of decision fatigue that caused individuals and employees to take greater risks in their security behaviours online. “A recent study from the US National Institute of Standards and Technology found that most interviewees reported that security fatigue often led them to risky computing behaviour at work and at home,” he said.
New Year resolutions should focus on tightening up cybersecurity rather than muscles or calorie counts warns Niall King of Centrify, the leader in securing enterprise identities against cyberthreats.
Mr King, Centrify’s Senior Director APAC Sales, said 2016 had seen record levels of cyber breaches and data disruption around the world, including massive breaches of user data at Yahoo!
In February, a cyber-attack on Bangladesh’s central Bank caused $81 million in losses and prevented the processing of another $850 million in transactions. In October, adult website company Friend Finder Network Inc. was hacked, exposing more than 400 million accounts containing 20 years of customer data.
Last month, Yahoo! disclosed thieves had stolen data about more than a billion of its user accounts - after in September revealing a separate breach that affected 500 million accounts. Although investigations continue, industry observers believe compromised credentials - involving stolen or hacked passwords - played a part in these data breaches, along with many more globally.
