Main Features

  • Digital Wavelet Technology. Precise IR (Internal Resistance / Conductance) online measurement is performed on each battery. User selectable internal resistance or conductance data display
  • Over Voltage Protection. Designed with over voltage input for each sampling channel
  • 600VDC. Allows the unit to be installed in a wide range of voltage applications 
  • High Resolution. 16 bit high resolution provides for clear and precise data acquisition
  • Solid State Scanning. (rather than mechanical relay) provides the highest reliability for data center and industrial applications
  • Noise Immunity. Ensures accurate measurement on high ripple ups systems
  • Modbus/RTU Communication. Provides high reliability and ease of integration 
  • Compact Design. Permits convenient installation on top, or inside the battery cabinet
  • Access Data/Alarm from Anywhere. Firewall friendly Battery Analyzer software, plug and play, easy to manage large number of sites from anywhere via internet. Alarming through email, SMS, and SNMP trap.
  • HMI Panel. The plug and play touch panel (optional) allows the technician to configure and calibrate without the need of a PC
  • Supports Site/Building Management Systems. The system fully supports 3rd party network battery management systems with SNMP, Modbus-TCP, and hyperlink to real-time data

Main measurements

  • Cell Voltage Monitoring
  • Cell Internal Resistance (IR) Monitoring
  • String Voltage Monitoring
  • String Charge & Discharge Current Monitoring
  • Integrated true RMS ripple current
  • Ambient Temperature Monitoring
  • Pilot Battery Temperature Monitoring
