Maintenance and care battery for UPS
Batteries are the most important and costly element of the uninterruptible power supply. It is the state of these elements depends on an uninterrupted supply of equipment under all conditions. In order for the battery panel in the long term retain their resource, they need to properly maintain and charge.
The UPS uses battery lead-acid type. This means that inside is the electrolyte. Unlike car batteries, the batteries bespereboynik it is in a gel state, so it doesn’t spill when you change the position of the device. The battery is sealed, so special care and maintenance is required except for the timely and proper recharging.
It is very important to charge the battery after purchase. Typically, the user acquires it in a discharged state. If such a battery is to start immediately to use, it will not be able to provide continuous uptime when the power goes out. If the UPS is equipped with self-test function, when run it will display a message indicating that the battery is low.
To charge a new battery backup, connect it to the network without load and leave for the day. If you brought the UPS with cold then it needs to stand for several hours in the room in the off state.
After a full battery you need to connect the load and leave it until fully discharged. Then do another cycle of charging-discharging device. Only after this procedure the battery will be ready to operate at full capacity and will reliably protect your equipment from surges and power failure.
If you charge the battery via charger, the amperage should be no more than 30% of the battery capacity. Voltage, which gives the charger should match the battery. To determine the optimum charging time need to divide the capacity of the battery at a current that produces a charger. In these simple calculations, you will receive a charging time in hours.
In order to extend the service life of the battery, it must always be charged with the same voltage. If the battery in for long periods of time is not used, its service life is significantly reduced. If you want the UPS functioned for a long time, it needs to used as directed.
If you have purchased an uninterruptible power supply from a trusted manufacturer and use the battery, the device will serve long and reliably. Proven themselves in the market bespereboyniki ESE, which is equipped with quality batteries. These devices will cost a bit more than their counterparts from questionable manufacturers, but due to prolonged uptime, these costs pay off.
