UPS Systems PLC offers UPS batteries and impedance tests as well as other kinds of UPS maintenance, such as checking power and cooling.
Unless it is serviced on a regular basis, your Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) can fail, which leaves you at risk of losing critical data. The main reason for that is UPS battery failure. We will be looking below at what causes UPS batteries to fail. Please contact us if you have any further questions.
An open circuit is the most common reason why a VRLA battery fails. Cell dryout is what most often causes this. Typically, UPS systems come with a Series connected battery system that provides the UPS System DC Bus with a high current. If one of the cells in a string opens, it breaks the entire string’s current. Briefly put, it only takes one failed battery cell to bring your whole infrastructure down.
Causes of Battery Failure
Temperature variances or incorrect temperature is the most common cause of UPS battery failure. The average stated life and optimum performance is achieved when the temperature of the lead-acid battery is maintained at 22 to 25 degrees Celsius. However, if the temperature falls under 22 degrees Celsius it will sustain damage or under perform; temperatures over 25 degrees Celsius reduces battery life but increases battery capacity. As a point of reference, every 8 degrees Celsius increase in temperature reduces the battery life by fifty per cent. So if batteries are working at 35 degrees Celsius, they are at risk of lasting just half of their 5- to 10-year expected lifespan.
UPS Battery – Empty Batteries do not last forever
Even when you follow all of the guidelines properly, UPS batteries will not last forever. UPS batteries, over time, lose their capability to provide power and …
