Battery Analyzer Online Manual
Battery Analyzer is a powerful battery management software to handle data and alarm for many battery banks in multiple locations. It utilizes Modbus-TCP protocol to poll battery data from Sentry units and/or BatteryDAQ DAS server software, from local network and/or public internet connections.
3 major parts are needed: (1) SQL Express Database —- (2) Battery Analyzer —- (3) Sentry units or Battery DAS Server
Obtain CD or Battery Analyzer installation package from BatteryDAQ.
For Microsoft SQL Express Database installation, please refer to online help.
Run Battery Analyzer “setup.exe” as administrator. If the database has been installed correctly, at the end of installation, it will create database tables for Analyzer.
After installation, go to C:\BatteryDAQ\Analyzer\, right click BatteryAnalyzer application (not the icon) and choose to run as administrator. (For some windows settings, you have to run as administrator in order to make equipment configuration and save the Analyzer settings. For normal operation, just click on the icon on desktop to run it.)
Before making any change to configuration, Setting(S) –> Disconnect ALL.
After “Disconnect All”, the “Server Setting” and “Equipment Management” are enabled.
Setting(S) –> Equipment Management to add new Sentry units (local or remote), or make changes.
Add new device. For multiple string in parallel, set battery number for one string, then change battery number to match to battery bank. For example, a Telecom site with 5 strings of 4x12V, set to 4 to add device, then change battery number from 4 to 20 at next step. This will allow software to load correct default value for thresholds.
Change SeverIpAddress to match the actual network settings for device or DAS server.
Check through all alarm parameters. (Leave Specific Gravity as default.)
Setting(S) –> System Setting to enable Automatic Discharge Recording, Record discharge by voltage drop (0.1 %) is recommended.
Configure SNMP if needed.
Set up email for alarm delivery. If computer has public internet access, you are welcome to use BatteryDAQ email server by default. (BatteryDAQ makes no guarantee for availability.)
Setting(S) –> Connect All to poll data from devices or server(s).
Make sure your computer is not running at power saving mode. (No data polling when it is sleeping.)
Right click data area to export data to csv file.
Operation –> Update Baseline
After data is verified, you may update the baseline to monitor the Internal Resistance changes over time.
Operation –> Record Discharge Data to capture battery data manually over defined time period.
Disable Automatic Discharge Recording in System Setting before using manual record.
Display –> History Inquiry to check recorded data or history data.
Analyzer record one set of data per day into history at normal condition.
Operation –> Monthly Report to generate report for selected month.
