Accurate data collection is critical to establishing baselines and trending battery function variables. System reliability at a reasonable cost depends on the quality of this information. While manufacturer and industry standards are available for guidance, neither, due to frailties of manufacturing or component consistency, is able to provide the bead on service life estimation that benchmark data can provide. Delivery of critical service as well as routine maintenance functions can extend battery life and reliability when delivered in accordance with individual cell and string characteristics and requirements using data that refine manufacturer and industry-based statistics. These benefits are dependent on consistent and well-organized data that reveal unique performance profiles.
