Telecom facilities, head ends, power utility substation and data centers all rely on uninterruptible power supply (UPS) batteries as a backup power to preserve AC and DC power system reliability in the event of an electrical power outage.
However, UPS battery failure is the main cause of electrical power outages incidents. The main reason of this high risk of failure is unpredictable battery deterioration. From the moment a battery is placed into service, deterioration begins due to usage and environmental conditions.
The solution to counter unpredictable deterioration and prevent power outages is to carry out a preventive maintenance program. As part of a proactive battery lifecycle management strategy, performing preventive maintenance enables organizations to mitigate network interruptions and ensure the reliability on batteries’ state of health.
