DiscoverBus™ Wired Battery String DC Current Sensor

A hall effect based DC current sensor suitable for monitoring charge and discharge current in a battery backup string.

DiscoverBus™ Wired Battery String DC Current Sensor

About the product:

Backup battery strings are commonly used in the telecoms industry, in data centres and on remote power generation sites. Lead acid technology is still widespread in this field and maintenance, requiring battery swap out, is an expensive and time consuming procedure. This sensor will measure both charge and discharge currents and when used in conjunction with a “Battery String Voltage & NTC Temperature” sensor on each battery, it is possible to monitor the behaviour of batteries in the string while under load, reducing the risk of premature failure or explosion of batteries. Identifying these failing batteries early can be a basis for a preventative maintenance plan.
