Your battery plants are your backup power supply when commercial power fails at remote sites. They're a critical component of your network. If the commercial power goes out, the backup batteries come on to keep your critical equipment running. But what happens if your batteries deplete before commercial power is back on?
You need the life span of your batteries to be as long as possible. Draining them completely not only shuts down your site, but also significantly reduces the total lifespan of that battery. Low voltage can even damage some equipment.
Therefore, it is critical to monitor the current charge level in your batteries. When necessary, you must also reduce the load on them to extend their run time. So how do you extend the discharge time of your batteries?
To really extend the charge of your batteries during an outage, you need a device that will systematically and automatically shut down less crucial devices when your batteries hit a critical low. While a PDU is a step in the right direction, it must also include automated, intelligent decision making.
Imagine a system with a PDU-like device with RTU functionality to monitor battery voltage. This system will keep track of battery voltage natively. It will be able to automatically power down devices at key critical battery thresholds based on predetermined settings. This system will lighten the load on your whole team by automating several processes that previously required human involvement. You're getting near-perfect performance while actually cutting your workload.
With a Remote Power Switch (RPS) from DPS Telecom, this is a possibility. The RPS combines PDU power-cycling with RTU functionality to provide a solution to battery power draining. Using analogs to measure battery voltage and Automated Power Conservation Technology, the RPS can monitor battery voltage to systematically determine when to power down your less critical devices. This helps extend the charge on the battery to ensure that your most mission-critical equipment stays running for the duration of the outage. The RPS (Remote Power Switch) comes in three different models and also has several build options to make sure you get exactly what you need for your perfect-fit solution.
Not all of your equipment is equal. Extend battery discharge time by intelligently powering down some devices when your batteries run low. Call 1-800-693-0351 to find out more about the RPS line from DPS Telecom.
