At the batteries

PowerShield sensors feature advanced circuits that drive fast data sampling and powerful measurement algorithms. Battery data is passed to the PowerShield Sentinel monitor at speed.

In the battery room

The PowerShield Sentinel monitor collects, interprets and stores data from the battery and string-based sensors. PowerShield Sentinel is a stand-alone unit that functions without the need for PC control and is suited to both online and offline applications.

A PowerShield Sentinel monitor can accommodate up to 1280 individual batteries and provides storage for more than 200,000 datapoints. Multiple PowerShield Sentinels are configured to scale up the system for large battery banks.

Getting the data out

Whether running as a stand-alone system or integrating with existing facility management systems, PowerShield offers a range of simple solutions to help you stay informed.

PowerShield Link battery management software brings your batteries to your desktop via the LAN. Email alerts can be sent direct to your service team.

A range of communication options mean that solutions can be tailored to meet your monitoring and reporting needs.

Turning data into information

PowerShield Link software gives the user a powerful, graphical interface to the batteries, displaying and storing data and alarms across the lifetime of the batteries.

An enterprise level, Windows based package, Link enables multiple users to access the same data simultaneously.

PowerShield Link gives your staff the reporting tools to analyse trends, identify potential battery failures and help you to identify and manage battery end-of-life.

If you’d prefer an independent or external view on your battery data – or simply a second opinion – the PowerShield Reporting Service is a cost-effective way to receive expert analysis and interpretation of your battery data.
