Emerson's Preventive Maintenance for Battery Capacity Testing

Preventive Maintenance: Battery Capacity Testing

Scheduled Capacity Tests for High Battery Reliability

The key to preventing battery failures is to minimize any misuse, perform scheduled routine maintenance, and track capacity. An annual capacity test on a battery plant is recommended to obtain a high degree of reliability. Battery load tests are considered by the industry to be the most effective method of determining a battery's ability to supportits the required load for the specified time period.  
Capacity testing for -48V and +24V battery plants is performed per IEEE standards, which involves discharging each string of batteries separately utilizing a load box. The Emerson Network Power Intelligent Battery Load Tester automatically logs voltage and current measurements throughout the discharge and features 200 amps of built-in power for battery recharging.
  • Determine true battery plant capacity per IEEE standards
  • Detects sub-par battery plant performance under a controlled environment
  • Discharges batteries to a desired level without subjecting critical equipment to decreased voltage levels
  • Web access to a documented service report, including:
    • Graph voltage of each string
    • Recommendations for corrective action when necessary
    • String voltage, cell voltage, discharge current every minute of the test
  • Reassurance that your batteries are healthy or information about whether they need to be replaced or not
