Reach the full control of equipment reliability and efficiency!
Our recent statistical studies, based on our last 7000 technical activities, show that three are the basic ways that allow to reach the full control of equipment reliability and efficiency: preventive maintenance, systems design and optimization, training courses.
SMART Battery Test
The true and safe battery controls
The battery efficiency is the first condition for the reliability of the UPS and Rectifier systems and so for the protection of loads. In fact, statistically, more than half of the UPS and Rectifiers malfunctions are due to inefficiency of the battery accumulators.
For this reason a frequent battery control is a must.
How to run the discharging test in the safest and easiest way?
How to offer during the battery discharging tests the necessary protection to the critical loads in case of power failure?
Elettro’s solution: Smart Battery Test (patent pending)
A battery cell fault depends on a wide variety of anomalies and the analisys method based only on the measure of the internal resistance doesn’t allow the right identification. In general, you should always run a discharge test. But how are the controls carried out in practice? How long does the process take and what about the risks for operators and critical loads during the tests?
Yesterday: Service engineers had to disconnect the battery to the loads (which, by that time, will no longer be available in case of a blackout), gain access to the inside of the battery cabinets to connect the portable discharger to terminals, and manually perform the relief of equalization measures on each block, often mounted in tight spaces. It is clear that this process entailed many problematic issues about potential risks for operators safety. The work itself took a long time, with possible inaccuracies of not being able to manually record simultaneous data. Finally, in the event of a power failure during the test, you had to add the economic damages caused by the disconnection of loads.
Whereas today… only two manual actions: to connect the automatic discharger to your SMART using a single connector, then to push a button. SMART Battery Test is ON. Easy. Isn’t it?
Our team is really satisfied. Very professional job!
For this reason I would like to give my warm appreciation for a job well done. Sincerely
