CELLGUARD™ Wired

The CELLGUARD™ wired Battery Monitoring System (BMS) delivers economical, yet highly accurate and reliable remote health analysis of stationary batteries in applications with high electromagnetic noise. Battery operators are provided with continuous 24/7 monitoring of key battery performance indicators to help enable proactive maintenance, ensure battery performance, and deliver uninterrupted power when it matters the most.

ENSURE UPTIME WITH 24/7 MONITORING

Utility personnel are provided with continuous 24/7 monitoring of key battery performance indicators to help enable proactive maintenance, ensure battery performance, and deliver uninterrupted uptime when it matters the most.

KEY ADVANTAGES

Wired-Icon-Battery-Health.psd

STATE OF HEALTH

The BMS helps analyze data trends related to battery state of health, simplifying the detection of potential issues for operators to optimize battery usage.

LTC Icon Regulate.psd

INTERNAL RESISTANCE TESTING AND PERFORMANCE TRENDING

The BMS tests a given battery’s internal resistance at a pre-determined interval. The results are then collected and presented as a trend providing the user with genuine DC power plant performance insight.

BASE COORDINATOR UNIT

The base coordinator unit (BCU) records critical performance elements including alarms and discharge events. Alarm parameters and thresholds are managed through the BCU which also delivers real-time system data through the web-based UNITE™ Battery Asset Management Software.

The BCU can communicate via RS485, Ethernet, MODBUS/RTU, MODBUS/TCP, and SNMP protocols.  Data derived from the BMS is easily integrated into most third-party systems.
