The Midtronics Managed Services Program is designed for maximum effectiveness to determine battery state-of-health and effective replacement scheduling without exposure to potential load loss. Batteries should be managed in accordance with established corporate standards, or a defined procedure like IEEE 1188 or similar standard. Midtronics Managed Services program is designed to determine battery state-of-health in addition to effective replacement scheduling without exposure to load loss.
Battery installations provide a critical power resource that ensures the continuity of systems, facilities and ultimately, business operations. However, batteries are a complex electrochemical system and a consumable resource/component that is in constant flux. A program designed to measure and manage the battery performance and replacement schedule is an important part of an effective operational plan.
A combination approach that includes state-of-the-art technology (battery monitoring systems, advanced test equipment and specific battery-oriented enterprise data management software), regular technician-based inspections and, most importantly, proven expertise will result in the most effective prevention of downtime due to power interruption.
The managed services program works in conjunction with battery data management applications like CELLTRAQ and BATTERYNET. These software applications enable automated data analysis and notification of issues while providing electronic data storage for records retention and auditing. All data gathered is loaded into one of these software databases and utilized to improve system reliability. This eliminates the risk of potential downtime.
When automated battery monitoring systems, such as CELLGUARD, are deployed, many of the components utilized in the managed services program will execute autonomously, without involvement by facility personnel. This automation benefit allows for 24/7/365 system integrity.
As operational plans change and facilities expand, so must the services relied upon to manage the key infrastructure. Midtronics Managed Services are offered at 3 different levels to maximize budget requirements alongside battery management and reliability.
Beyond the significant reduction in risk provided by a Managed Services Approach, this method can also offer substantial savings for Facility Operators. Below is a simple comparison of the standard battery maintenance model commonly in use today versus a more comprehensive Managed Services Approach.
