W-BMS, the SOCOMEC Battery Monitoring System, is an effective battery monitoring solution which maximizes the availability of the supply in applications where power continuity is vital.
Because 75 % of uninterruptible power supply (back-up power supply) system breakdowns are down to batteries, the reliability of these components is a key feature of your electrical system. Therefore, accurate, detailed monitoring of their operating condition is vital. This actually guarantees maximum continuity of the supply to the system’s critical loads, loads which cannot tolerate even a brief interruption let alone a prolonged power cut.
W-BMS is a vital tool in the continuous supply of critical systems and performs preventative battery monitoring.
This solution provides the opportunity to eliminate any unscheduled power cut due to battery failure.
Make cost savings
- Improving UPS uptime.
- Reducing maintenance operations by 75%.
- Maximizing battery return on investment.
- Anticipating battery malfunctions.
- Guaranteeing the safety of maintenance personnel.
Ensure the continuity and safety of the supply to critical loads
It is vital always to know the operating status of the lead acid batteries supplying critical applications. W-BMS ensures that these are in good condition and will work when you need them. Unlike other battery monitoring systems, W-BMS has been specifically designed to monitor the impedance of the different battery monoblocs every day.
By avoiding the time-consuming and potentially dangerous manual method of testing individual batteries, W-BMS increases the likelihood of identifying a power failure and greatly increases the safety of maintenance personnel.
System or product options
Including all the features of the standard W-BMS, W-BMS INTERACTIVE operates directly with the UPS battery recharging system (EBS). It optimizes battery capacity and maximizes battery life and return on investment.
Increase charger precision: the UPS charger is able to adapt the recharge parameters according to all the information collected by W-BMS INTERACTIVE. Such corrective actions aim to standardize cell behavior to improve battery lifetime and availability.
Automatic battery testing: when required, W-BMS INTERACTIVE and the UPS perform an automatic battery test. The UPS calibrates slow, safe discharge while W-BMS INTERACTIVE collects data and analyses cell blocks.
Proactive measures: when a block starts to weaken, W-BMS INTERACTIVE and the UPS perform an automatic procedure to recover the block before it is totally unusable, and to enhance global battery capacity.
