The best battery monitoring system on the market today
Mission-critical services and critical infrastructure facilities require reliable, uninterruptable power. For these applications, it is common to have backup battery plants that can run the equipment at the site for hours, or at least until a backup generator is ready to take the load.
Batteries are a weak link in any mission-critical power system and must be monitored & proactively maintained in order to obtain the rated service life and the longest possible run times.
Remote battery monitoring can save maintenance costs, predict impending battery failures, extend battery service life, and improve overall site availability.
The PBT PowerAgent battery monitoring system has the added benefit of being a comprehensive facilities monitoring system, extending its monitoring and control capabilities to generators, chargers/inverters, HVAC systems, and building monitoring.
Automating Remote Battery Monitoring
Traditional manual testing of batteries and generators is time-consuming and expensive, resulting in only a few data points being collected yearly.
In addition, periodic manual measurements produce variable data, depending on how the technician makes the measurements and the type of instrument used.
This measurement data is seldom data-based in a form that can be “mined” for trends, so manual testing is not as useful or valuable as it could be. Automated remote measuring and monitoring systems can provide continuous and repeatable test data with thousands of data points per year.
These data records can be logged and mined for indications of equipment that needs maintenance or replacement, trends that predict future equipment failures, and environmental parameters that might affect equipment operation or life expectancy.
