Distributed Battery Monitoring Sensors Effects and Suggested Solutions.

Nigel Scott

The advent of widespread computer technology in the 1970s brought with it the need for uninterruptible power supplies (UPS) and these power systems in turn relied on lead-acid batteries for their continuous power support. Within a short time several US companies, saw a commercial opportunity, and individual cell continuous monitoring systems for lead-acid standby batteries have been marketed since the 1980s. With two notable exceptions, the first systems only monitored cell voltage and ambient temperature, and perhaps current, and had a single monitor or grouping system to which all the cells were connected directly, via long wiring harnesses.
