80% of UPS failures are due to undetected battery problems. All batteries fail, its just a matter of time. If you’re operating mission-critical systems and relying on the protection of a UPS and battery bank, then it has to make sense to have battery monitoring. It’s about peace of mind – knowing that the batteries are healthy and being constantly monitored. Knowing that everything has been done, that can be done, to protect your enterprise from the consequences of a power failure.
The PowerShield8 system provides monitoring for an unlimited number of batteries, with hardware options targeting both large and small battery systems. A complete solution of hardware and software ensures you get the information you need to confirm your backup batteries are operating within IEEE/IEC guidelines.
The PowerShield8 battery management system combines robust hardware devices for the reliable monitoring and collection of battery data with smart software dashboards. These provide a real-time view of battery health and predictive analytics about future performance. All backed by world-class technical expertise in battery management. That expertise extends across applications in data centers, and critical infrastructure such as transportation, emergency services, utilities and healthcare.
