Battery Temperature – With summer upon us, it’s important to ensure your air conditioning system is maintaining your UPS and Batteries at or below 77 degrees.
Slight temperature increases above 77 degrees will result in a reduction in battery life, and significant temperature increases (90 degrees and above) can result in thermal runaway.
Your A/C system should be monitored, and if it fails you need to be alerted and take immediate action to reduce the temperature for the batteries and UPS. Also be alert for any planned building maintenance activities that could effect the A/C for your batteries. If there is an 8 hour A/C shutdown over a weekend, it could spell disaster for your UPS batteries.
