The Hybrid VDC XEB is an environmentally friendly energy storage system that combines flywheel technology with batteries in one patent-pending integrated system. With the combination of batteries, users who need more backup time can utilize the reliability and green aspects of the flywheel system with minutes of extra runtime from the batteries.

Compatible with all major brands of three-phase uninterruptible power systems, the Hybrid VDC XEB connects to the dc bus of a UPS. Receiving charging current from the UPS, the VDC XEB provides clean dc power to the UPS during discharge.
