UPS Battery Maintenance & Service

UPS Battery Care & Services Available from Mitsubishi Electric

Mitsubishi Electric’s extensive network of factory-trained, certified service technicians are readily available to provide customers with the following prompt on-site UPS battery services when care is needed. Uninterruptible power supply maintenance is crucial to the performance of your system – and that extends to the batteries as well.

Battery Replacement Services

Wondering when to replace your UPS battery? No matter how well you care for your UPS battery, it will eventually reach the end of its lifecycle. When this happens, Mitsubishi offers complete UPS battery replacement services on existing systems.

Our UPS battery services are fully turnkey with delivery, installation, and removal of the old batteries to be disposed in certified recycling centers. Depending on the battery type or manufacturer, there are cost differences, varying length of warranties, multiple available run-times, and different resistances to environmental factors. We pay close attention to systems with UPS battery monitoring services and carefully remove and re-install each monitoring device. Contact Mitsubishi to help determine which replacement battery is right for you.

UPS Battery Maintenance

Proper UPS battery maintenance cycles and environmental conditions must be observed for your battery warranty to be valid. UPS battery services from Mitsubishi Electric include complete battery maintenance programs that have been approved by each battery manufacturer to meet their warranty standards. All services are conducted in strict adherence to IEEE guidelines – including complete battery removal and recycling. 

Our UPS battery maintenance programs include state-of-the-art test equipment, propriety reporting software and documentation as well as streamlined warranty claim procedures to replace failed batteries in an expedited manner. We can work with any battery make or model, and even offer flywheel service and repair.

Annual Battery Maintenance

It’s important to schedule annual service to ensure your batteries are running smoothly and reduce your need for parts replacements.

Mitsubishi Electric offers annual inspections, which may include:

  • Measurement of the battery system’s ambient temperature and the individual battery’s temperature at the negative post.
  • Measurement of battery system float voltage and charge current, open circuit voltage, ground fault.
  • Measurement of individual battery unit strap resistance, unit impedance, conductance or load capacity.
  • Inspection of the battery cabinet and individual battery units for signs of leakage, dirt or damage.
  • Environmental inspection to eliminate anything that might interfere with battery operation.

Quarterly/Semi-Annual Battery Maintenance

While annual service is the suggested minimum, we recommend our technicians come out and perform battery maintenance at least twice a year to ensure your system will back up power in the event of loss or fluctuation. There may also be value in quarterly inspections, especially as your batteries age.

Quarterly/semi-annual preventive battery maintenance includes:

  • Visual inspection of battery storage and individual battery units for contamination and damage, including leaks, overheating, terminal integrity and corrosion, bulging and more.
  • Measurement of ambient and individual battery temperature, float voltage and current charge, and individual battery unit impedance, conductance and load capacity - scaled-down from annual testing.
Lithium Ion Batteries (LiB) are quickly becoming the preferred energy storage solution due to their long life and small footprint.

Battery Upgrades

A number of alternative energy solutions available for UPS batteries exist beyond traditional lead acid models. Possibilities include lithium ion, pure lead, or a flywheel. Each possesses unique benefits and considerations with respect to runtime, material handling, and warranties.

Battery Monitoring

UPS battery monitoring provides continuous, real time information on the status and performance of your batteries. By actively trending the health of your batteries real time, active alarms and trigger points can be established to notify you of existing or potential failure trends. Proper battery monitoring may alert you to reduced or non-existing battery support of your critical load during input power interruption and can save you from a critical load loss. Trending data will also provide insights that will be valuable when planning for future capital expenditures, such as replacements and reduce unseen expenditures. Integration of these battery monitoring systems into your Building Management System is also highly recommended.

Mitsubishi Electric offers many varieties of UPS battery monitoring solutions, including systems that monitor individual batteries and those that monitor characteristics of the cabinet. Contact us determine which UPS battery monitoring system would be best for your installation.
