A bird’s eye view of your batteries

In our previous blog, we introduced PowerShield 8 and its accompanying Link battery management software. We emphasised the importance of installing the software that comes with your battery management system (BMS), and this is especially true of Link software.

Turning data into actionable insights – the missing link

What is it that data center managers are most concerned about when it comes to their batteries? We’ve discovered that its peace of mind; confidence that their batteries will perform during outages. How is this achieved? In PowerShield we offer a modular solution that’s fast, accurate and smart. It combines intelligent hardware devices with smart software, delivering a real-time view of battery health and predictive analytics about future performance. Get that right, and you’re in a better position to use your data for future decisions and analysis. Why does it need to be fast? It means you’ll get better visibility, because the measurements are in real-time and are always available. It also allows for rapid fault identification and notification. This is achieved via fast data sampling, which measures block voltage, string voltage and string current simultaneously, every 4 seconds. The speed of PowerShield 8’s fast sample rate means that when it comes to discharge logging, that can be initiated quickly too, because it identifies changes in the battery state immediately. Critical to capturing the full discharge including the Coup de Fouet. Accuracy is crucial Reliable, consistent and accurate data is essential for life trending. PowerShield is a high accuracy, high resolution and high repeatability solution to ensure the integrity of your data. How do I know if it’s smart? What you’re looking for is a solution where the intelligence is built in at all levels. For instance, the Controller understands the battery state, whether that be float, discharge, charge or idle, and applies specific limits to match. It uses that same logic to prevent the measurement of impedance in charge or discharge, to get the best trending of expected battery life. At the sensor level, the smarts include ripple and noise rejection – essential for the typically noisy electrical environments [...]
