Are You Prepared?

In the event of a power failure, will your backup system support your equipment? Your power supply supports the nerve center of your business. It is imperative that your backup system protects you in the event of a utility power failure.

In order to be sure that your system will do just that, it is crucial that your Battery system receives regular planned maintenance. Remember the old Christmas tree lights, when one light failed the entire string stopped working? UPS batteries work the same way.

Preventative Maintenance Services

EEE recommends 2-4 Preventative Maintenance visits per year. Pow’r Guardian tailors all maintenance programs around IEEE specs, and my listening to the customer.
Manufacturers require users to submit periodic maintenance reports before honoring warranty.

Below is a brief list of IEEE requirements.

  • Measure and record the total battery voltage and charging current.
  • Measure and record AC ripple voltage.
  • Measure and record AC ripple current.
  • Inspect jars and covers for cracks and leakage
  • Look for corrosion.
  • Measure and record the ambient temperature.
  • Inspect battery rack and cabinet
  • Measure and record the float voltage of all jars.
  • Measure and record all internal ohmic readings.
  • Retorque all connections to manufacturers spec.
  • Provide written report

Discharge Testing

IEEE recommends battery capacity testing at or before installation, and during the first two years that the cells are in service. This testing can be tailored to customers specifications

  • Full load testing vs actual load on the UPS
  • Utilizing a customer load vs a load bank
  • Monitoring each cell or battery jar vs string voltage.

Typical standards that are followed

  • IEEE 450 for Flooded or Wet Cell jars (VLA)
  • IEEE 1188 Sealed jars (VRLA)

Once completed the customer will receive a full report outlining testing procedure and subsequent results.
