As a result of important R&D efforts and constant focus on the market requirements BATTMASTER® is the first wireless Battery Monitoring System (BMS) that continuously measures and logs the voltage, temperature, internal resistance and current (optional) of lead acid batteries (2V, 6V or 12V nominal voltage) as individual cells / blocks or within a battery string. This easy to use and install system will dramatically improve your systems' reliability and operating cost.
BattMaster® is composed of:
CU (Central Unit)
Collects the DAM and IDAM data, manages communication with the PC
DAM (Data Acquisition Module)
Measures voltage, temperature and internal resistance of the battery
IDAM (Current DAM) Optional
Measures current of the battery (or string)
PC with BattMaster SW installed Optional
Displays data and configures the system
Note: the CU supports a total of 1024 DAMs and IDAMs (max. 64 IDAMs).
It can be integrated with any remote supervising system based on LAN, GSM, Internet or other communication means.
- No wires connection between batteries and Central Unit - first wireless on the market
- Easy to install and operate
- All collected data saved on microSD card for later review
- User friendly
- Simple, multiple user interfaces
- Modular design
- Low cost / High performance
- Multiple communication media: USB, Ethernet and GSM.
FEATURES & BENEFITS
Battmaster® system consists of individual monitoring devices that are wirelessly connected to the central unit (CU). The communication is in the 868 MHz-license free band and offers high speed and up to 100m range. The installing and operating costs are lower in comparison with wired systems.
BATTERY DATA LOG
Battmaster® continuously measures and logs battery data including:
- Individual battery voltages, temperatures and internal resistance
- Battery string current
- Discharging cycles
- Over/under voltage and over temperature alarms
The raw data sampling rate is high (few ms), the data base refresh rate is user settable (from minutes to hours). All relevant values are recorded; no one can be missed, independently of the set refresh rate.
BATTERY PERFORMANCE COMPARISON
Battmaster® tracks and logs individual battery activity, but displays also the string's parameters (e.g. the string's average voltage or temperature). The end-user can evaluate individual batteries by comparing batteries behavior within the same string or the behavior of the individual battery in time.
ADVANCED USER INTERFACE
The CU can be interfaced through a USB or a LAN port to a PC that operates the user friendly, features rich Battmaster® application SW (Windows based).
LOW COST / HIGH PERFORMANCE
Battmaster® is a high performance, low cost alternative to existing BMS solutions. It ensures that users are provided with the critical data needed to increase battery system reliability.
