BTECH Battery Validation System UW-1

The BTECH UW-1 Battery Validation System (BVS) is an installed base monitor for switchgear applications in Utility and Industrial applications

The BTECH UW-1 Battery Validation System (BVS) is an installed base monitor for switchgear applications in Utility and Industrial applications.  The UW-1 BVS measures up to 60 lead-acid cells (96 Ni-Cad) for internal cell impedance and connection resistance.  It also measures battery voltage, cell voltage, ambient and pilot cell temperatures.  The monitor captures performance under discharge with battery and cell voltage performance under load.

The BVS features automatic test and data acquisition with user programmed test intervals.  Local and remote alarm features for out-of-limit conditions of cell voltage and impedance, system voltage and temperature and loss of AC power are also included.

Coupled with the BVM data acquisition software, the BVS measurement system can manage a thousand battery sites with automatic polling via the BVM Observer.  Data are captured, archived, reported and graphically displayed.  The equipment is designed to be predictive in nature, avoid serious problems and schedule timely maintenance.
