ZincFive’s UPStealth Wins Florida Department Of Transportation Approval Adding Safer, Smarter and Greener Technology To
Florida’s Transportation Infrastructure

FDOT joins over 150 Departments of Transportation that have adopted the UPStealth with nickel-zinc batteries to keep their signalized intersections operating during power outages while improving safety and efficiency for their drivers and pedestrians.


PORTLAND, Oregon—(May 2019)— After a rigorous and lengthy qualification process, The State of Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT), has added ZincFive’s UPStealth intelligent uninterruptible power supply (UPS) to their Approved Products List.  FDOT is nationally recognized for its leadership in safe and efficient transportation as well as being one of the largest and most influential DOT’s in the nation.

The UPStealth, already the fastest growing UPS for Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS), has passed a demanding suite of tests to qualify for use within FDOT’s intelligent transportation infrastructure. All aspects of the UPStealth were tested along with its ability to perform within and add value to the FDOT transportation infrastructure.

“We’ve appreciated the opportunity to work with the FDOT organization to achieve this milestone that will benefit Floridians and their many visitors,” says ZincFive CEO and Co-founder, Tim Hysell. “Now, FDOT districts as well as Florida cities and municipalities can deploy the nickel-zinc battery-based UPStealth with our industry-leading customer service fully supporting their installations.”

The UPStealth offers a safer, smarter and greener alternative to traditional lead-acid battery-based UPS solutions.  ZincFive’s patented nickel-zinc batteries offer longer life, small 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 offers performance features not seen before in this class of UPS.  Groundbreaking features of the UPStealth 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.
