Monitors charge and discharge currents and can detect the transition from charge to discharge state and vice versa.
Provides DC for charging the batteries. The charging protocol depends on the size and type of the battery being charged.
Monitors both DC voltage and AC Ripple voltage in the DC Bus and Ambient temperature.
Sees the status of the batteries from virtually anywhere: home, remote office, desktop, laptop and even handheld device.
Has direct access to the battery monitoring system.
Virtual machine that performs the same functions as the Gateway, but the communication with monitors is through Mini Gateway.
Gives the user a complete insight into the UPSs state of health and lets user perform lots of actions.
The information is secure inside the users private network and access from outside is permitted only by the user.
DC backup systems (UPS) are created to ensure an uninterrupted power supply when the input power source fails. It differs from an auxiliary or emergency power system or standby generator in that that it will provide near-instantaneous protection from input power interruptions by supplying energy stored in batteries. Batteries (battery strings, battery banks) are the main part and also the most vulnerable part of the UPS.
If only one battery goes bad, it can affect the neighbouring batteries, disbalance the charge patterns, generate excessive heat, start a chain reaction that can lead up to a thermal runaway situation. The whole idea behind battery monitoring systems is to provide up-to-date information about batteries’ state of health so potential problems could be avoided.
Measures: individual battery voltage, internal battery temperature, battery Ohmic value and individual battery AC Ripple voltage and provides charge balancing.
