If you've planned, schemed, plotted, and wrestled with contingencies
for every possible risk to system availability, don't miss the most simple,
but potentially devastating, possibility: failed UPS batteries. Ask yourself
Do I have enough battery back-up?
When you initially purchased your UPS system, you probably planned for
the right amount of battery back-up time for your environment. Unfortunately,
times have changed, and your energy environment has become more hostile
than ever. After analyzing your load and runtime specifications, space
restrictions and recharge time, our Service Team will deliver the best
solution to carry you through longer power outages. Options include additional
battery strings and higher capacity batteries, with priority delivery
and professional installation.
Are my batteries in excellent condition?
Accelerated degradation of UPS batteries can occur due to excessive
use or high temperature. With the current state of utility service, your
existing batteries may be suffering from more wear and tear than usual.
Regardless of manufacturer and advertised life spans, these hostile conditions
may drive the need for replacement in 4-6 years or earlier. You could
be looking at weakened batteries when you need them most. Our Service
Team can update your batteries with identical replacement models or upgraded
versions, providing expedited delivery, full installation, and Provincial
and Federal approved disposal of old batteries.
How fast can I get additional or replacement batteries?
Demand for batteries continues to outpace the supply or putting many
end-users in a precarious position when emergency needs cannot be met
in a timely manner. As a Power Control customer, you have access to priority
delivery from the world leader in UPS batteries. We can supply fast-turnaround
of additional battery cabinets, emergency replacements and can support
scheduled installation of large quantities or additional battery cabinets
at your convenience.
How can I make sure my batteries will work when I need them?
Don't play Russian Roulette with worn-out batteries. Regular checkups
on your batteries give you the peace-of-mind that comes with minimizing
risks to system availability. Our Service Team provides Battery Preventive
Maintenance, so you can proactively detect battery problems instead of
discovering weak batteries at the worst possible moment: when you need
them to support your critical load. With Power Control Battery Preventive
Maintenance, you get:
- Comprehensive preventive maintenance service for either VRLA
or Flooded batteries
- Services performed quarterly, semi-annually, or
- Maintenance procedures that meet and exceed IEEE guidelines
and Manufacturers' specifications
- Written evaluation providing you
a historical record of your battery performance and recommendations
for future actions
Can I track my battery condition continuously?
With Battery Monitor and Alarm advanced battery monitoring, you can
rest easy knowing that critical battery parameters are constantly measured,
alerting you to any out-of-tolerance conditions. The BMA uses state-of-the-art
fiber optic technology to keep tabs on battery voltage, internal impedance,
temperature, and string current. Tracking performance history, and the
BMA notifies you with an alarm when any single battery component demonstrates
