As the recent news about data center construction in Santa Clara, CA and Dulles, VA and elsewhere can attest - data centers are an investment. And if the estimated cost of downtime for a data center is $9,000 per minute, then systems and processes that help eliminate downtime like battery monitoring are crucial.
For the last 50 years, we have relied on UPS systems and batteries for reliable backup or reserve power. And yet, the questionable and uncertain performance of the battery and the battery systems of which it is a part is begging to be answered in a way that meets the demands of the 21st century . With this in mind, BTECH has engineered a thoughtful and holistic solution…
In the lead up to CapRE’s 2019 Data Center Forecast East on January 31st, our very own Mike Phillips had a chat with CapRE Media’s Josh Anderson focused on how BTECH is looking to contribute to the conversation around how the data center market will evolve in 2019 and beyond. Read more.
When we developed the first stationary battery monitoring system based on trend analysis, it was crucial that we assist our customers in learning about the batteries in their care and the problems that will inevitably arise because of our dependence on battery power.
We live in an digital world, where downtime, outages, and disruptions become newsworthy events; they start trending on Twitter long before any fix or mea culpa makes its way out to the public. Read More
In a world that is increasingly dependent on power and online connections, confidence is key, confidence that systems are going to perform as intended, confidence that your data center environment is going to be up and available and confidence that your operations across multiple locations is coordinated and consistent.

This paper provides substantiation that continuous monitoring and proper management will enable meeting and possibly exceeding the projected life for Valve Regulated Lead Acid (VRLA) batteries, and will improve the reliability of the battery power during a disruption of normal AC power supply.
BTECH’s newest release of its industry leading Battery Validation Management Software (BVM) includes powerful new battery management features and capabilities that bring valuable benefits to end users.
The growing number of users who depend on the BVM Software to manage battery systems used in various business critical applications such as data-center operations, communication servers, switch-gear equipment, and emergency generators will find this software release especially useful.
Got a GenSet? If you are looking for generator reliability, the CellQ1 is for you. Check out these two video, where we show how easy it is to install a CellQ1 system and start monitoring those batteries!
Are you monitoring your battery impedance based on initial or average measurements? If your answer is the latter, you may be putting your battery performance at risk when it's needed the most - during a power failure. This presentation explores a case where a company was using average impedance values to determine when to service their batteries - and what went wrong!
