Alber BDSi

Factory Integrated Battery Monitoring

Alber BDSi is designed specifically for factory integration into the battery cabinet of the Liebert NXL UPS. The system provides detailed battery information, allowing for cost savings by optimizing useful battery life. Instead of waiting for an inevitable failure or replacing batteries prematurely to prevent problems, you can continue to utilize your batteries longer and with confidence by knowing their true internal condition.

The Alber BDSi is factory integrated into the battery cabinet of the Liebert NXL UPS, and uses custom cables with each connection point identified to the specific battery. Each Alber BDSi unit will monitor all the batteries in one cabinet, up to 40 cells.

The system consists of a controller and data collector/load module units: The Alber BDSi Controller stores the data, provides alarms, power and communication connections collected by the DCM/LM unit. Each battery cabinet in the system uses the Alber BDSi DCM/LM unit, which collects and transfers data to Controller. A Controller can communicate with up to six DCM/LM units.

Battery monitoring may also be managed by Liebert Services, ensuring proper, timely maintenance by local, factory-trained Customer Engineers.
