Albér BDS-256XL Battery Monitoring System
The Alber BDS-256XL monitors 2V-16V batteries. Specifically designed to monitor 2V VLA cells. The easy-to-use system tracks internal resistance, predicting and reporting failing conditions prior to complete failure to allow proactive replacement.
Scans all pertinent battery parametersPerforms a scheduled resistance test and stores results for trendingAuto detects discharges and stores data for playbackSignals if a parameter is outside user-programmed limitsCommunicates with an external computer using USB, modem, RS-232 or LAN (RJ-45)Network compatible
Flexibility Windows-based software for real-time viewing, automatic data collection, data analysis, and report generating. Modular design easily expands to monitor an unlimited number of strings. Industry standard MODBUS protocol interfaces to third party building management systems via RS-232 and Ethernet.Communicates with an external computer via R-S232 or remotely through internal modem.Optional TCP/IP interface for network or Internet communication via MODBUS or SNMP. Higher Availability Can be used in conjunction with other Albér monitoring products to manage virtually all battery configurations with one software package.Scans pertinent battery parameters every 4 seconds, including total voltage, cell voltage, current and temperature. Automatic proactive internal DC resistance tests. Discharges are automatically detected and data saved for retrieval.Trend analysis provides the ability to analyze performance and aid in trouble shooting. Lowest Total Cost of Ownership Optimizes useful battery life -- Instead of waiting for an inevitable failure or replacing batteries prematurely to prevent problems, you can continue to utilize your batteries longer and with confidence by knowing their true internal condition.Ideally Suited For: Large UPS systems with up to 256 cells per string.
