Canara Insight+ for Batteries

Innovative predictive monitoring service that eliminates the need to purchase battery monitoring hardware

Continuous monitoring of backup batteries can ensure protection, but requires a large up-front capital investment and adds more equipment that you must maintain. But hardware alone is not enough; you must then have the staff that can review alarms and interpret the enormous amount of data generated by these monitors. Unfortunately, all too often, alarms are often ignored, and performance data is rarely truly reviewed and understood. This not only places your data center at risk but also prevents you from realizing the full value of your investment.

Rethink your battery asset management.

Innovative Battery Monitoring Technology

Predictive monitoring of the health of your backup power systems is critical to ensure uptime and supports business process improvements to aid overall operational efficiency. While you need it now, we understand that you may not have the capital to invest. This is why we offer our monitoring and predictive analytics as a service without the need for upfront capital investment in equipment. Canara Insight+ for Batteries includes state-of the-art hardware that gathers the same performance data as node-based systems but with up to 80% less battery connections.

  • Smaller hardware footprint with fewer potential points of failure

  • Swappable design for non-intrusive replacement

  • Large installation scalability

Canara Quadrant Controller

The Canara Quadrant Controller collects battery health and performance data across a string of batteries. Once connected, the controller measures four quadrants within the battery string to efficiently collect necessary performance data. These metrics enable identification of trending and critical battery situations that may require maintenance activity. The data points measured include impedance, float voltage, ambient temperature, charge and discharge voltages.

The Quadrant Controllers are connected to a Canara Manager that aggregates and communicates collected power system data back to the Canara Insight Center for analysis.


Critical Power Analysis & Reporting

WEEKLY TRENDING & CORRECTIVE ACTION REPORTS Weekly reports provide alarm details and recommended actions, enabling stakeholders to properly plan pre-emptive maintenance, while avoiding costly emergency work orders.
AGING ANALYSIS REPORT Detailed report that provides an estimate of the remaining operational life of a battery system. The report is based on a performance index rating that takes into account: system Ohmic rise, system age, number of batteries out of tolerance and number of batteries replaced.
DATA CORRELATION REPORTS FOR HANDHELD TESTING Canara can perform periodic validation of data captured on hand-held devices against the data collected by the battery monitoring system. These reports correlate the different measures and ensure accurate recommendations for the disposition of batteries.
CUSTOM REPORTS Custom reports allow you to create, edit and save your battery data in alternative formats that cater to your specific asset management needs.
EQUIPMENT ACTIVITY HISTORY Users can create work tickets to track all corrective and preventive maintenance activity performed on data center battery assets.
CRITICAL POWER PERFORMANCE REPORT A comprehensive report presenting the power outage events (discharges) that were captured by the battery monitoring system are also available.
CRITICAL SYSTEM REPORTS From commissioning reports to preventive and corrective maintenance reports, all delivered as interactive reports for one-click access to the information you need.
