What is the most common cause of battery sudden death?
UPS system vendors and users often run into problems when their batteries fail through “sudden death”—they stop working with little or no clear warning, leaving the rest of the system in the lurch.
Since a sudden death generally results in the destruction of any data or retrievable history, and since for the most part the “death” precludes any sort of evident indication, the battery cannot be used for further investigations. Without reliable measuring data, the reason for a sudden battery death remains unknown and the responsible engineer or user is left in the dark, and it is up to the vendor to decide if a given warranty claim will be acceptable or not based upon scant evidence. The situation until now has not been ideal! But….
Now the SMARTBATTERY has arrived– the world’s first black box-integrated battery!
The SMART technology from GENEREX offers a special method to ensure battery function and data logging “from the cradle to the grave “, beginning with the production and delivery process and including storage conditions, pre- and post-sale:
- Voltage conditions
- Temperature conditions
- Capacity conditions
- Storing time and conditions
Upon initial activation, the SMARTBATTERY begins to write black box data; this data remains stored for the lifetime of the battery, integrated but independent to battery function. Through use of such technology a vendor will always be able to search for hidden signs that may cause a sudden battery death before installation, while also retaining said data well after the battery has ceased to function.
Since the SMARTBATTERY by its very design cannot be reset or tampered with, measured data stands incorruptible as a witness to the battery’s usage and treatment, which makes it invaluable with regards to warranty and other eventual legal disputes.
