Maintenance staffers responsible for measuring and recording battery operating parameters know they are supposed to be taken on a periodic basis. After years in the business, it is clear that little or nothing is frequently done with the readings post-inspection. Technicians think Engineering is analyzing the data. Or, is it that Engineering is supposed to be doing this? In reality, no one is doing anything with the data and, in the meantime, potential battery failure waits. When data is analyzed, it’s frequently misinterpreted. So, what are you doing with the data? This paper will discuss commonly measured battery parameters, what the data mean and good sources of guidance for what the readings should look like.
