DiscoverBus™ Wired Battery String Voltage & NTC Temperature Sensor

A lead acid battery monitor for measuring voltage and temperature of a single battery in a battery backup string.

DiscoverBus™ Wired Battery String Voltage & NTC Temperature 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. It is beneficial, to reduce the risk of premature failure or explosion of batteries, to monitor the voltage of a battery while it is under load conditions. This sensor is equipped to measure the terminal voltage and case temperature of a single battery, in a string of up to 50 batteries. Lower than normal voltage drop, or elevated case temperature, can occur when a battery is failing. Identifying these failing batteries early can be a basis for a preventative maintenance plan.
