Battery Monitoring

Importance of Predictive Battery Maintenance

Unplanned data center outages present a difficult and costly challenge for organizations. While eliminating downtime altogether is a challenging undertaking, organizations can start with the most frequent cause of unplanned outages – uninterruptible power supply (UPS) battery failure.

In most cases, the ability to keep critical systems running through power outages is dependent on the UPS. Batteries are one of the most “low-tech” components supporting today’s mission-critical data centers but they are the most vulnerable part of an UPS system. A single bad battery cell can cripple a data center’s entire backup system, particularly if adequate UPS redundancy has not been implemented.

Maximize Your Uptime with MMR’s Battery Monitoring Solutions

Data centers with battery monitoring systems provided by MMR and installed on-site result in a reduced rate of outages. The use of our battery monitoring systems by customers increase the Mean Time Between Failure (MTBF) by more than double when compared to preventive maintenance alone.
Our remote monitoring not only lift the burden of monitoring from internal personnel, but in many cases, it also integrates onsite and remote preventative maintenance activities in order to maximize battery availability.

Features and Benefits
Predictive Maintenance

Helps you proactively address battery related issues that you could never see before by allowing you to visualize all critical information and know the real state of health of your batteries at all times.

Increased Availability

Detects open and shorted batteries
Provides advance warning of an impending battery failure
Eliminate the risk of human failure.

Reduced Maintenance Costs

Enables extended maintenance intervals by basing maintenance on the condition of the batteries rather than arbitrarily timed schedules.
Automates all of the IEEE recommended practices for battery maintenance and testing except visual inspections.

Reduced Replacement Costs

Enables extended replacement intervals by basing replacement on the condition of the batteries rather than arbitrarily timed schedules.
Provides documentation to support warranty claims.

Increased Safety

Detects and mitigates catastrophic conditions including thermal runaway.
Minimizes shock, arch-flash, burn and chemical risks by reducing personnel exposure to batteries.
Meets the rigorous safety requirements for test and measurement equipment under UL 61010-1.

Improved Compliance

Allow users to comply with International Fire code (IFC) 608.3 by providing the ability to detect and control thermal runaway.
Provides documentation to demonstrate compliance with regulatory standards.

Decide

Helps you make more informed decisions, faster by analyzing data and utilizing built-in decision support functions that determine what matters and what doesn’t. MMR’s battery monitoring systems’ unique approach provides warning of imminent battery failures months in advance.

Act

Helps you take the right action with confidence at the right time by recommending the best corrective action. Battery Monitoring systems from MMR continue to set the standard for monitoring and testing stationary batteries used in data center, industrial, telecommunication and utility applications, offering a full line of battery monitoring systems, portable and capacity test equipment and educational services.
