1. Batteries 

Most UPS systems use sealed lead acid batteries of which the single most common cause of premature failure is temperature. Optimum performance and the manufacturer’s average stated life is achieved if the battery temperature is maintained at between 19ºC and 22ºC.
Because batteries are such critical elements of your UPS system, it is absolutely imperative that their operational capacity is known. You will want to know if your batteries are fully charged, how much deterioration there has been since installation, and what is there present life expectancy. To do this, Powertecnique offer internal resistance testing, and we would recommend this should be undertaken annually. Your batteries may appear healthy on the outside, from a visual check. But unless you know how they will perform when called upon to do so you may suffer a critical battery failure right at the most important time – when the power goes down and you need you batteries to pick up the load! 


Contact us to book battery resistance testing or simply add battery testing to your service and maintenance contract to avoid any downtime in the future.
