The BMS architecture consists of a Master Controller and multiple slave modules. The slave modules sit on the battery and have high-quality sensors to read data.
Each Master Controller can handle up to 36 individual batteries. The Master Controller receives data from the slaves, processes the incoming data, and sends the data to the cloud. You can connect hundreds of Master Controllers to monitor all your batteries.
Our proprietary architecture includes multiple redundancies to ensure safety and reliability at all times. The sensors, modules, and master controller are designed to be isolated from surges and power spikes. The sensors get their power from the batteries. The master controller get it’s own power from the UPS or Inverter and is thus never down. The master controller is also capable of both wired and wireless communication protocols, as per your specific needs.
Sosaley provides a secure and cost-effective Cloud framework for data collection and communication between the Battery management modules and the user. Your data is secured and stored in a biometrically sealed facility with redundancies built into the system for safeguarding against data loss.
Our continuous data sampling, reporting and battery management capability delivers all the necessary information at your fingertips, as well as to UPS/battery manufacturers/dealers for preventative maintenance. The cloud can also send SMS/email alerts directly to the service technicians to inform them about the status of the batteries.
|Voltage||2-120V||Voltage identifies catastrophic failures such as short-circuited cells and gives true visibility of battery performance.|
|Battery Temperature||20-120°||Temperature is a critical parameter as battery temperature measurements allow early detection of thermal runaway.|
|Current||0-500A||An imbalance highlights potential problems within a battery string. Current measurement allows early detection of issues and any significant leakage faults.|
|State of Charge (SOC)||10-100%||State of Charge (SOC), is used to describe how full a battery is. Remember, lead-acid battery always needs to be fully charged for storage.|
|State of Health (SOH)||0-100%||SOH is a measure of the long-term capability of the battery and gives an indication of how much lifetime of the battery has been consumed and how much is left.|
|Battery Status||C, D, or, S||Battery status tells you if the battery is charging, discharging, or, in standby mode.|
|Charging / Discharging cycles||This is calculated to get a rough measure of the life of the battery. For example, if a manufacturer specs says the battery can be charged a 100 times, you will know how many charge cycles are left.|
|Time remaining||Again calculated, this tells you how much time is left in the battery at current load conditions.|
|Hydrogen Emmission monitoring||Using a flex sensor, we can measure the bulge of the battery, if any, and warn you of possible battery explosions. This is particularly critical in installations where ventilation is low.|
Individual Battery Voltage
Incorrect charge voltages may result in loss of capacity, accelerated grid corrosion, excessive gassing and premature end of life. Voltage also identifies catastrophic failures, such as short circuit cells, and gives true visibility of performance under discharge.
A battery’s life-span is normally specified at 20 or 25 degrees centigrade. Temperatures outside of the specified range can significantly affect the battery’s corrosion rate, and therefore the life of the battery. An 8-10 degree temperature increase can decrease battery life by 50%.
String current monitoring measures the energy delivered or accepted by each battery string. An UPS will only measure total current and cannot detect imbalances between strings. An imbalance highlights potential problems within a battery string. String current measurement also allows detection of incorrect battery charging and any significant earth leakage faults. Tracking the string voltage confirms the charger is on and performing correctly.
Individual Battery Impedance (Ohmic value)
The impedance of a battery will increase with age. High impedance results in a battery that cannot supply the required current – its key task. High impedance also highlights poor connections and open circuit batteries before failure. Batteries can fail in a very short period of time (less that a week) so measuring impedance daily allows you to detect faulty batteries without the need to discharge them. By trending impedance you can accurately determine end-of-life of the battery.
Measuring the temperature of each battery highlights localized environmental problems through poor HVAC. It can also highlight poor connections and excessive charger ripple. Temperature is a critical parameter for NiCad batteries. Most importantly, battery temperature measurements allow the early detection of thermal runaway.
