Battery Equalization Technology
A chain is only as strong as its weakest link. This proverb holds true for a multi-battery string; the weakest battery reduces the performance and life of the entire battery string. Battery Equalization Technology is an advanced charging process that improves the performance and extends the life of a multi-battery string by charging each battery to a similar voltage.
By charging each battery to a similar voltage, the multi-battery string will charge and discharge at the same level. This improves runtime and extends the time between each battery replacement resulting in lower overall battery costs.
Battery Equalization Technology is a component of a Battery Management System and has been used at the datacenter level for many years. However, this technology has not been available at the individual UPS level until now.
