Powershield Monitoring



Powershield Overview

PowerShield provides the most advanced and most cost-effective tool for monitoring and managing stand-by battery banks. PowerShield’s continuous data sampling, reporting and battery management capability delivers reduced costs, gives peace of mind and, most importantly, ensures that you have batteries that perform when needed.

PowerShield specialises in the design, manufacture, installation and operation of advanced battery monitoring systems for organisations with critical services that rely on continuous power.


We operate globally and have installed battery monitoring solutions with customers in over 50 countries around the world. International customers include Bank of America, Barclays, Bloomberg, BT, CenturyLink, Chevron, Equinix, Huawei, IBM, Intel, Microsoft, Morgan Stanley and NASA.

Product Line

Powershield 8

PowerShield 8 is our best system yet for monitoring and managing stand-by battery banks. PowerShield’s continuous data sampling, reporting and battery management capability delivers reduced costs, peace of mind that you have batteries that perform when needed, and you are maximising the life of your batteries. There are four components that make up PowerShield 8. Simple installation, minimal cabling and the capability to monitor UPS batteries that are up to 8 strings per system.




Controller

The Controller is an intelligent hardware device that at four second intervals captures, processes and stores all relevant data collected from batteries and the operating environment. With regular monitoring comes the accumulation of data, the ability to report and spot trends, and make informed decisions. At the heart of this is the Controller.

MSensor

mSensors enable you to quickly and accurately record data from every battery. Located at the battery, mSensors gather individual voltage (DC and ripple), impedance (Ohmic value) and temperature for VRLA, VLA and Ni-Cd batteries.Advanced circuits in the mSensor drive fast data sampling and powerful measurement algorithms. 750Vdc optical isolation inside the mSensor keeps the dangerous voltages at the battery and away from the operator.

Hub

A Hub on each battery string connects the various data points required to provide an accurate picture of your battery bank’s current and future state. The Hub reduces the need for excessive cabling. It allows for more batteries to be added to every cable as well as being able to hold two roles (eg. ambient temperature and current transducer). This reduces the clutter of a system and streamlines the configuration.
