The UPTIME+ system from MSP
It is the most advanced product on the market today, providing an Ethernet-network integrated battery monitoring and management system.
Using web-management technology, UPTIME+ checks the internal resistance, temperature and voltage of every single battery sequentially. Through the Equalization process, the system corrects the charging voltage operating range. This prevents gassing, dry-out and thermal runaway. The constant Battery monitoring and controlling of the individual charging voltages for each battery guarantees the availability of the battery at all times.
Benefits of Battery Monitoring :
- Extends battery life by equalization
- Monitors & regulates the battery charging process & avoids under-charging
- Indicates battery problems before failure
- Monitors condition of every battery individually including temperature
The reporting system displays the status of all lead-acid batteries. Any change in impedance, temperature and voltage is displayed and stored. Reports can be run regularly on site, enabling constant monitoring of the system using the UPTIME+ viewer. Through regular monitoring of key parameters, the system will provide a warning when attention is required.
The above graph demonstrates that battery 6 is weak after 30 minutes of discharge into a 45 minute run. This early warning system enables the user to replace the weak-performing battery and thus increase the lifetime of the complete battery system.
