UPS battery replacement

For a UPS emergency power system to function, it is crucial that the system’s battery is in optimal condition. After all, the batteries need to be able to immediately take over the power supply to your vital equipment in the event of a power failure. Therefore, it is vital to maintain the batteries properly and replace them when necessary. For example, when they are at the end of their service life or no longer function properly. Thanks to our extensive experience with all kinds of battery systems, Intercel can expertly maintain and, if necessary, replace batteries for any UPS / no-break installation. Intercel can also install UPS monitoring systems. These systems monitor your UPS 24 hours a day, and allow you to respond adequately to failures.

When to replace your UPS battery?

UPS batteries have a limited lifespan. It can vary by type and is affected by various factors, such as the method of use and room temperature. Under certain circumstances, batteries may need to be replaced earlier than the pre-estimated lifespan. Our specialists can visit you on site to inspect the condition of the battery. By performing various measurements and tests, we can indicate whether the battery still meets the required conditions. In addition, Intercel can provide your batteries with a monitoring solution. This allows you to monitor your system 24/7 and respond appropriately to failures. It also allows you to see when it is time to replace the UPS battery, without someone having to come by.
