100_0793UPS battery maintenance is a critical aspect of a secure power supply. When your “UPS” system fails it is usually the result of one or more weak batteries. It doesn’t matter if it’s a small desktop ups or a large 1MW system. We know that’s usually the case. UPS battery maintenance is key in making sure that your uninterruptible power supply (UPS) system is operating at optimal efficiency and keeping your data center running.  The battery back-up is the most vulnerable part of any UPS system, regardless of capacity, topology or brand. The battery is ultimately at the heart of the UPS in terms of reliability. Understanding causes of UPS battery degradation, ways to prevent degradation and UPS battery maintenance options are fundamental to ensure maximum system availability and to keeping your data center and business up and running continually.

ScreenHunter_41-Sep.-11-11.06Universal Power’s  factory trained service technicians/engineers will work with you to recommend the size and model of battery system that best meets your needs. Our field technicians work in accordance with IEEE Standards 1188 and 450 for VRLA and Flooded UPS batteries, and follow all federal, state, and local regulations for handling hazardous materials.

Our UPS battery maintenance and replacement philosophy is designed around detecting and correcting potential issues before they become problems that cause system failure and cause your data center to lose power. Over 90% of UPS failure is attributed to battery error, so when inspecting UPS batteries we look for leaking cells, cracked cases, and sulphation, to name a few issues. Temperature, voltage, impedance and conductance are also measured, tracked, and analyzed.
