Stand-alone battery monitoring system measuring the float charging current required to maintain a full state of charge.

Cabinets, CEVs, WICS, Huts, PCS sites: connect the FCCP to a local alarm system for transmission to your OSS. Use the control unit’s temperature compensation threshold to avoid undesirable alarms.

Smart alarming

Smart alarming eliminates annoying alarms during battery discharge and recharge. The FCCP's discrete alarms can be wired to any type of alarm collector.

Security and protection

Increase site security while increasing backup power reliability, and protect staff and equipment with proactive detection of thermal runaway conditions. The FCCP's helps comply with the International Fire Code (IFC 608.3) and the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA 1. Article 52.).

Enhanced crew efficiency

Streamline maintenance routines, cut site visits, and optimize crew workload.

Simple and efficient

Determine nominal float charging current for a given battery and establish the high threshold mark that notifies when a battery engages into a potential thermal runaway scenario.

Easy to install

Installs easily in 30 minutes without opening battery strings (non-intrusive) and permanently integrates into any critical location; it can be rack-mounted or flat-mounted.

FAQ

Q. Is it possible to trend float current activity over time?

A. Yes. The FCCP provides a 0-50mV analog output signal directly proportional to the 0 to 5A input range. Therefore, using the Multitel FUSION RMU or the analog signal, you can precisely monitor and trend float current over time.

Q. How do you determine the normal float charging current value in regards to battery age, capacity, operating temperature and voltage?

A. The float charging current needs to be determined before installing the FCCP. The battery manufacturer can supply this information.

Q. How do you determine where to set the alarm threshold?

A. This is a critical question. For thermal runaway prevention, you want the high current threshold to be set high enough to proactively catch the catastrophic event and not too low to provide negative or false alarms. Threshold recommendations are provided in the FCCP user manual.

Q. Can the FCCP operate with chargers or rectifiers with temperature compensation enabled?

A. Yes, the FCCP measures ambient temperature and can compensate high current alarm thresholds if the temperature compensation feature is not enabled to eliminate negative or false alarms.

Q. Can the FCCP helps comply with the International Fire Code (IFC 608.3) and the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA 1. Article 52.)?

A. Yes. The FCCP will help you comply with IFC 608.3 and NFPA 1. Article 52. as a device to preclude, detect and control thermal runaway.
