Preventive Maintenance for Industrial Applications

Battery Preventive Maintenance for Industrial Applications

Batteries are considered the most critical, yet vulnerable component of the emergency power system. In fact, battery failures are one of the leading root causes of load loss. A comprehensive preventive maintenance program for your emergency power system’s batteries is one of the most cost-effective measures you can take to ensure system reliability and prevent costly downtime.

A battery preventive maintenance program helps you make informed decisions that increase battery availability by identifying anomalies and trending end-of-life. Vertiv’s battery specialists are outfitted with the latest test equipment and are well-versed in today’s complex regulatory requirements. They will work with you to design a battery maintenance plan that meets IEEE and NERC requirements, including the first-ever required testing protocol on batteries and battery chargers for utilities (NERC PRC-005).

How to buy


Periodic inspections designed to assess battery cell and string state of health are offered monthly, quarterly or annual for all battery types including VRLA, VLA and NiCad
Battery capacity testing, performed per IEEE standards and manufacturer specifications determines a battery’s ability to provide a reliable power source and support the required load
Battery charger maintenance includes regular inspections of racks, interconnection cables, cell connectors, and other conductors to ensure your batteries are fully charged and working as intended


Greater emergency power system availability and reliability results from ongoing battery service
Less unplanned downtime is achieved through regular oversight that resolves potential issues before a failure 
Longer battery service life happens as problems that cause premature aging are avoided or corrected
Improved battery performance is possible when power systems are optimized through maintenance activities
Lower total cost of service occurs as maintenance prevents battery performance issues from becoming problems that lead to costly downtime
