UPS battery replacement
For a UPS emergency power system to function, it is crucial that the system’s battery is in top condition. The batteries immediately supply the energy required to your vital equipment in the event of a power failure. Therefore, it is vital to maintain the batteries properly and replace them where necessary. For example, if it is at the end of its service life or no longer functions properly. Thanks to its extensive experience in battery systems, Intercel can maintain and, where necessary, replace batteries for any UPS / no-break installation. Intercel can also provide your batteries with a monitoring system. This ensures that your system is monitored 24/7 and can respond adequately to failures.
When to replace UPS battery?
UPS batteries have a certain lifespan. This can vary by type and is affected by various factors, such as the method of use and ambient 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.
Replacing a UPS battery
If you choose to go for battery replacement, the first thing to do is to choose the right battery. That is, a battery with the right capacity and the right characteristics. UPS batteries must meet high quality standards. When needed, they must be able to deliver high peak power. Intercel can perform a 1-to-1 replacement but can also modify the current battery system to bring it back up to current requirements. Intercel also offers alternatives to the current configuration. Our experts are happy to think along with you and help you make the right choice.
UPS battery installation
An emergency power battery obviously needs to be fitted correctly. Our experienced technicians can install or replace both internal and external UPS batteries. For external systems, we also supply suitable battery cabinets and battery racks. After installation of the battery system, the system is tested and commissioned in cooperation with the UPS supplier.
Migration of UPS systems
Moving an emergency power system is a job that needs to be done with care and precision. We have extensive experience in dismantling, transporting and assembling these systems. Careful planning in close consultation with you, the user, keeps ‘downtime’ to a minimum. If necessary, we can provide a temporary solution during the migration.
UPS emergency power maintenance
Intercel can check the condition of your battery in two ways. The first way is UPS battery maintenance. This service involves our technicians visiting your premises to visually inspect and measure the battery. They also perform minor work, such as cleaning and topping up Nicad batteries.
Another option is the installation of a UPS monitoring system. This system continuously monitors the status of the battery. When there is a problem or it is time to replace the battery, you will automatically be notified. Intercel can quickly and expertly install this type of system for you.
