Wireless battery monitoring solution takes centre stage at Data Centre World 2019

GS Yuasa Battery Sales UK Ltd enjoyed another successful year at Data Centre World at Excel, London on 12 and 13 March. The world’s leading battery manufacturer not only launched an innovative new Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) battery temperature monitoring solution at the event, but also welcomed hundreds of visitors to their eye-catching stand.

The leading Data Centre exhibition was the first time the new Yu-Power Wireless Battery Monitoring Solution, which consists of the Yu-Power YPCBM2 Battery Temperature Logger, the Yu-Power YPCBL2 Battery Temperature Logger USB Wireless Receiver and accompanying dynamic software, was on show to the industry.

The Yu-Power battery monitoring package was demonstrated on a special LED lit battery system consisting of SWL750FR batteries. The system’s accurate temperature and voltage monitoring capabilities, and the features of its powerful analytical software were displayed next to the cabinet on screen. By continually monitoring key parameters, the Temperature Logger and Wireless Receiver work together to measure temperature and voltage, communicate wirelessly and determine if a battery system is operating within recommended guidelines.

Stephen Wheeler, Sales Manager – Reserve and Renewable Power Division at GS Yuasa Battery Sales UK Ltd said: “This year’s Data Centre World exhibition was a great success. The Yu-Power Wireless Battery Monitoring Solution generated a lot of interest and plenty of Yu-Power YPCBM2 demonstration kits were given out, allowing businesses to try the solution for themselves by connecting the temperature loggers to their existing battery systems.

Wireless Battery Monitoring System

Data Centre World is always an important event for us. As ever, the team enjoyed showcasing examples of our market leading products and discussing the characteristics of Yuasa’s high-quality VRLA industrial battery ranges with the industry.

The Yu-Power Wireless Battery Monitoring System is the complete solution for Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) battery data monitoring. Used together, the products ensure long service life and reliable performance.”

Yuasa also exhibited its dual chemistry battery system at the event. Designed to utilise the best of both Lithium-ion and Valve Regulated Lead Acid (VRLA) battery technology, the system contains 12 GS Yuasa LIM50EN-12-F2 Li-ion high energy modules connected in parallel with FXH VRLA types to the same DC bus of a UPS.

The dual chemistry system offers the low cost and recyclability of VRLA together with the higher efficiency and operational flexibility of li-ion. It allows lower capital cost UPS systems to be installed with lower operating costs and reduced electricity consumption.
