REMOTE VLA BATTERY MANAGEMENT

The CELLGUARD SYSTEM ELS+ Electrolyte Level Monitoring System provides Reliable Electrolyte Level and Temperature Monitoring on Vented Lead Acid (VLA) batteries in Utility, Telecommunications, Data Centers, and Industrial Battery Plant applications.

  • Completely non-invasive to battery
  • Complies with NERC PRC-005 electrolyte level inspection requirements with 24/7 alarm reporting
  • Enhances operational safety with battery case temperature alarming in the event of abnormal battery thermal conditions
  • Modular quick connect cabling provides time saving installation without the need for a site survey
  • Alarms on low electrolyte levels, excessive battery case temperature, and power loss to the sensor
  • Can be integrated to commercially available data collection systems
  • Compatible with VLA Batteries of any voltage, size, or design

CONFIGURATION

CELLGUARD ELS+ ELECTROLYTE LEVEL SENSOR

  • The Sensors are connected in series to adjacent sensors with modular cables to create a Sensor string
  • The Sensor string terminates into one common powering and alarming module, the Hub

CELLGUARD ELS+ HUB

  • The Hub provides power to a maximum of four Sensor strings
  • The Hub aggregates all individual Sensor alarms from all Sensor strings to one common two form C dry contact

ALARM INDICATION

RED ALERT

  • Both the Sensor and Hub units provide LED indication to visually identify VLA batteries that require servicing 
  • During a low level electrolyte level condition or if the battery case temperature limits are exceeded, then the Sensor communicates an alarm condition to the Hub unit. The Hub senses the alarm state and provides dry contact alarm lead status.

INTEGRATION

  • The Hub dry contact output is in alarm state during a power loss condition or during a Sensor alarm condition
  • Dry contact alarm leads support normally open and normally closed alarm indication to the alarm detection inputs of a commercially available Remote Terminal Unit (RTU)

EASY INSTALLATION

PRECISE AND SIMPLE

  • The Sensor Alignment Tool, with built in bubble level, ensures correct Sensor placement for accurate electrolyte level sensing
  • The Sensor is easily adhered to the battery case using double sided tape specifically designed to be compatible with VLA battery cases, even in harsh operating environments 

CLEAN AND SIMPLE

  • Cabling is designed for organized and tidy sensor interconnection and cable routing
  • The Hub and Sensor components are quickly connected to a Sensor string with modular connect cables
  • The Sensor is calibrated to the battery case characteristics and electrolyte level state
  • Calibration is as easy as pressing a button and only takes seconds to complete
