A Portable System that Automatically Scans and Records Individual Cell Voltages, Internal resistance of cell, Electrolyte Temperatures and Electrolyte Fluid Levels During Normal Battery Charging, or Discharge Load Testing
Turns On/Off a Charger or Load Tester Based Upon Cell Voltage or Temperature Values Established by the Operator.
A system that provides the industrial battery operator or maintenance facility with a: “One System – One Solution,” process to optimize industrial lead-acid batteries. The Patent Pending product , utilizes the Rapid Sulfation Elimination capabilities of the de-sulfation systems.
A series of facilities based systems are integral to the battery optimization process because they perform, Scan – Command – Control functions for devices normally used in the battery maintenance industry. Those functional devices include the conventional battery charger and charging process, the Batt-Recon rapid de-sulfation system, the battery load testing device(s), the Batt- AMC (acid mixture adjustment module) and other devices that may be required to perform the optimization process.
The systems first SCAN (collect) the battery data on a cell-by-cell basis necessary to perform a battery optimization process on each individual battery. Secondly, using advanced “local” and “worldwide” databases, will determine when to activate or de-activate devices connected to it referred to as a COMMAND algorithm. Finally, the Model 5000 series will CONTROL these devices and sequence them in a manner to optimize the performance of the battery. When the battery performance criterion can no longer be improved, the battery is considered optimized.
Has endless possibilities when manipulating the individual cell raw data to create charts, graphs or business or scientific reports. Whether the desired output is in the form of a color pie chart or a simple data table, automatic export of data to Microsoft Excel makes the generation of reports easy.
Maximization of the Runtime Co-Efficient
The Runtime Co-Efficient is the battery capacity measured in minutes at a given amp/hour discharge rate. Sulfation Elimination techniques reduce internal resistance, which increases the electrical conductivity of the battery maintaining battery voltage
for a longer duration under an applied load. If the battery has a runtime of 2.5 hours per charge before the Batt-Recon de-sulfation process and is extended to 5 hours of runtime after de-sulfation, the runtime co-efficient has then doubled. If the battery required two charges per day to complete the assigned task before de-sulfation and only one charge per day afterwards, then the electrical efficiency of the battery would have doubled.
Using the Facilities Based battery maintenance methodology, the battery would deteriorate from the optimum 5 hours, ultimately becoming perceptibly slower at the approximate 2.5-hour runtime coefficientand by contrast, would provide the data to determine the slightest difference in operating runtime, allowing the warehousing manager the opportunity to fine tune the battery maintenance program optimizing the battery performance measured in runtime and electricity savings.
