TSE Power

UPS battery testing services in Essex

Available 24 hours of every day to fit in with your Critical Power requirements.

TSE Power’s extensive standby battery testing service is available 24 hours of every day to fit in with your Critical Power requirements. The Inspection report combines detailed test results with expert recommendations if needed.. 
A key benefit of a regular battery maintenance regime is the early detection of weak or failed battery blocks. As they are such a critical part of a power protection system, and the most common fault in UPS systems, replacement of weak or failed battery blocks should therefore take place before they fail. Ensuring that standby batteries are regularly tested or monitored is vital to ensure the integrity of supported equipment should a mains supply failure occur. Standby batteries need to be housed in a clean, cool environment to enable them to fulfil their recommended design life 
Additionally, TSE Power offers a UPS battery replacement programme for a wide range of battery supported products. We can supply a replacement UPS battery compatible with your AC UPS, DC equipment, emergency lighting, generator starting batteries and tripping sets. 

Load bank testing

This will show how long your critical power system will provide power to you load by discharging the batteries in real time with a known load. This can be the full designed load of the system or a set load (this option does leave the critical load with a lower run time until a full recharge has taken place).

Impedance testing

Our test using a Hioki Impedance meter is based on looking at a cell’s internal resistance. This is proving to be a very reliable indicator of state of health and should offer a cost-effective supplement or replacement solution to load bank testing. Field testing on all types of batteries has proven if a cell’s internal resistance increases to more than 35% above its known base line value, that cell will fail a capacity test.

Conductance testing

Conductance is an indication of a battery’s ability to conduct or produce energy. Using conductance and trending the results with information obtained from our handheld Midtronics conductance meter will provide you with the battery’s state of health by showing a percentage of measurement against the known original values. This will help plan the replacement of batteries before they reach end of life.
