EOLA Power is keenly aware of the importance of batteries in power systems and applications. Through our comprehensive UPS battery testing and maintenance services, we help to extend the service life of batteries.
As all batteries age, they have a restricted capacity. This diminished power supply means the battery is not as reliable, which can have significant repercussions in the power application. Routine testing identifies batteries that are no longer capable of charging or storing a charge and allows for timely UPS battery replacement.
According to industry data collected in the field, almost three-quarters of all remedial service work is caused by battery problems. Batteries that test at a level of 80% or less must be replaced to optimize the performance of the USP system.
Unfortunately, many businesses find out too late that just one problematic battery can cause significant power issues on critical and sensitive equipment. To prevent this issue, routine battery testing and maintenance services are highly recommended for all UPS battery backup systems.
EOLA Power Service plans and packages provide a range of battery maintenance and UPS battery testing solutions. Our battery service plans ensure your business will have:
Most of the damage that causes battery failure is invisible to the eye. By testing to check for internal degradation and performance issues of the battery, this hidden damage to the UPS battery backup can be detected and addressed.
The most common causes of battery degradation leading to battery failure are sulfating, corrosion, and drying out of the battery cells.
Battery testing schedules vary based on the specific system and the critical nature of continuous power to the business. We work with our customers to tailor a testing schedule to their system.
For most businesses, EOLA Power advocates for battery testing every quarter. In specific types of environments, including high humidity and temperatures, more frequent testing is recommended.
