One in a series about the recipients of Radio World’s 2012 “Cool Stuff” Awards.
The wireless Staco FirstLine BMS Battery Monitoring System monitors UPS batteries. And, it’s wireless. The system measures and records battery cell voltage, battery string voltage, battery string current, battery room temperature, battery cell impedance and battery terminal temperature. Info is shown with curves and bar graphs on an LCD touchscreen.
Thanks to the wireless design, the company says, it can be installed in half the time with less cost than traditional, wired monitoring systems. Useful for mission-critical data centers. Typical configurations are priced at $3,000 to $10,000 but ask for details for your situation.
