Battery Failure Alarm System

You can’t take chances with your critical electrical loads. An on-site battery monitor will allow your business to keep operating — by constantly monitoring the battery in your on- line UPS and notifing personnel when there is a potential battery failure. Relying on the proven relationships between current and impedance, the BFAS monitor detects battery failures, inverter shut down and DC filter capacitor problems at a very economical cost. How it works - An on-line UPS system reflects the AC ripple current found in the battery system. This ripple current remains relatively constant provided the battery impedance remains the same. If the battery impedance rises the ripple current lessens. This long overlooked phenomenon, which is the basis for the BFAS patent, tells more about a system's capability than any other product on the market today. · When impedance of the batteries goes up, current goes down - Indication of a bad battery · When the DC filter impedance goes up, current goes up - Indication of DC filter capacitor problem. This unique monitor does not require a battery discharge or system down time to effectively monitor single or parallel strings. Because the BFAS monitor does not monitor individual cell voltage in order to determine a bad battery string there is no high DC voltage on any of it’s wiring Installation: This monitor is installed easily, totally non-invasive of the UPS. Installation is done without disruption to the load or battery system. The system does not have to have an UPS protected AC power source. Because the system only monitors the battery string during the charge cycle it can shut down during an Utility failure and once Utility power returns it will automatically start monitoring the system normally. LCD: 4x20 character scrolling display; user-customized content for local viewing. Size of the unit: 8.4" (W) X 10.4" (H) X 7.13" (D) Note: Some significant load changes may require that the monitor be readjusted to allow for the load changes.
