Can you Afford downtime at your Data Center?
Battery Monitoring is essential to any data center facility. Downtime due to battery failures has caused significant financial losses, damage to companies' reputations and disruption to operations. You know how important it is to keep your data center up and running... but did you know how often your batteries can let you down? Battery failures are the leading cause of data center downtime according to a study by the Ponemon Institute.
Installing battery monitoring systems effectively makes it possible to assure the batteries and the UPS will perform during a power outage. More and more companies are monitoring their batteries to eliminate this risk as they find out the hard way what happens when the power fails!
Not only does a BTECH Battery Monitoring System assure the performance of the backup battery power system, it will also reduce UPS battery maintenance and replacement cost. Ineffective and expensive manual testing on a quarterly basis can be eliminated. With a BTECH system, battery replacement decisions are based on data and predictive analytics rather than fear of failure. As a result, battery life is extended by up to 65%.
BTECH Battery Monitoring Systems are found in:
Colo and Cloud Data Centers
Financial Data Centers
Corporate Data Centers
Government/Military Data Centers
Remote Backup Facilities
The typical battery strings found in data centers support three-phase UPS systems typically supplied by Liebert, Powerware, MGE, Pillar and Mitsubishi, among others.
These UPS's can have single or multiple 480V cabinets of 40 12-V sealed VRLA batteries or racks of 2V, 4V, 6V or 8V VRLA or Flooded (Wet-Cell) Batteries. It is critical to monitor each of these battery types, as failure can occur in as little as two weeks!
