Battery Impedance Testing

Regular impedance testing of batteries is an industry recommended and proven method of preventing critical battery failure. This is done by proactively identifying weaknesses and signs of deterioration in battery cells.

Battery Impedance Testing

Battery impedance is a measure of the internal resistance of batteries and is measured by applying an AC current to each individual battery, via probes attached to the block terminals. Lower internal resistance typically indicates higher capacity, as such an increase in the internal resistance of your batteries over time could highlight declining battery capacity.

By conducting periodical battery impedance tests (every 6 or 12 months for example) it is possible to compile a timeline of your systems battery performance. This makes it much easier to accurately forecast the expected end-of-life date of your batteries. Once you understand the condition of the batteries, your business can calculate when proactive replacements are required and ensure that the correct budget is allocated ahead of time, allowing you to trust the reliability of your power protection system.
Battery impedance testing is non-intrusive and can be carried out on a live battery set without impacting the autonomy of your business.
Battery Testing

Batteries are an essential component of any electrical device, hence the need for routine battery testing and maintenance at cell level. The most frequent causes of unplanned outages include; battery blocks reaching a premature end of life, batteries beginning to fail- causing an imbalance that adversely affects the life of the other batteries in the string, or a single bad cell, which could compromise your entire back up power system leaving you without protection. It is critical to have your batteries tested annually to run a smooth and successful power protection system.
