Other | Battery monitoring

Uninterrupted Power Supply (UPS) batteries are a source of ongoing maintenance and can constitute significant risk to critical infrastructure. Modern batteries are more efficient and significantly safer, but proper maintenance procedures and monitoring systems can reduce or prevent fires, explosions, sprayed acid and other incidents.

RT systems offers a battery monitoring system from Canara.

Battery monitoring from Canara

Canara has the most innovative and comprehensive battery monitoring system on the market today. Manufactured for ease of installation, Canara’s system monitors batteries for UPS backup power, DC plant, generators and switchgear. Our battery monitor devices capture more battery performance data than any other system, providing you with a holistic view of system health.
The battery monitoring system is built with interoperability in mind. The system captures battery data from standard Canara battery monitors but also supports integration of data captured on any other battery monitoring solution. All data captured is accessible via Canara connect, a locally hosted application that provides anytime-anywhere access to your battery health.

The Canara battery monitoring system comprises of the following components:

  • Canara Node1 per battery. Each patented Canara node has a visual health indicator and measures more data parameters more frequently than any other system.
  • Canara Manager1 per UPS or string(s). Collects data from the nodes and provides the central logic for each UPS battery monitoring system.
  • Canara Manager1 per site. The Canara Manager provides local web access to system health data and optionally synchronises with the monitoring operations centre.
  • Connect locally hosted software that allows one to access system performance reports and perform administrative functions on the monitoring system.
