EcoStruxure Battery Management System Solution Overview

The EcoStruxure Battery Management System is a solution that actively balances the charge of each battery block. The EcoStruxure Battery Management System continuously monitors the voltage, impedance, temperature and as an option the electrolyte level. The measured information is used to equalize the charge of the individual blocks to help them reach their designed lifetime.

Any UPS, charger or other standard industrial UPS can use the EcoStruxure Battery Management System solution, since it is installed separately from the system. Therefore the EcoStruxure Battery Management System solution can also be installed on your already existing UPS systems.

  • (A) Batteries: The EcoStruxure Battery Management System solution can be used with multiple different battery types. The maximum number of individual battery blocks in one battery bank that can be monitored with one webmanager is 512, if three splitting boxes are used.
  • (B) Modules: One module is used for each battery block in the battery bank. In one battery bank all modules are connected to the same webmanager directly or through a splitting box.
  • (C) Bus cables: Bus cables connect all the parts in the solution with each other. One webmanager is connected to one bus, additional webmanagers can be used if there are multiple battery banks, for example in a redundant system. For long distances between devices, repeaters can be used to extend the bus.
  • (D) Splitting Box: Optional. With a splitting box it is possible to connect additional modules to the webmanager. A maximum number of 200 modules can be connected to one splitting box.
  • (E) Webmanager: The webmanager connects the EcoStruxure Battery Management System solution to a network. From the webmanagers web interface the solution can be monitored and configured. If no splitting box is used a maximum number of 50 modules can be connected in one string to the webmanager.
  • (F) Cabinet: Optional. With a cabinet some internal wiring is already done to reduce the on-site installation time. It also helps to protect the webmanager from environmental pollution and restricts physical access.
  • (G) Current Sensor: Battery current sensors monitor the total battery charge/discharge current to the UPS, the charger or other system. The current sensors are connected to the webmanager.
  • (H) Bus Interface: Optional. A programmable device with digital inputs and relay outputs.
  • (I) Stand-Alone Temperature and Humidity Sensor: Optional. A stand-alone temperature and humidity sensor that can be connected directly to the webmanager.
  • (J) Sensormanager: Optional. Incase other sensors than the stand-alone temperature and humidity sensor are need, a sensormanager can be used.
  • (K) Additional sensors: Optional. Various additional sensors can be connected to the sensormanager to monitor or send signals to the webmanager.
