NASA Glenn Research Center Is An Excellent Proving Ground For Your Equipment
NASA solved their battery testing problem by using the SOC to ensure mission critical UPS backup systems come online when they need them the most. Read the full NASA case study below:
"It is our responsibility to service and maintain battery backup systems here containing strings of hundreds of recombinant batteries primarily 6 and12 volt. These UPS systems backup many mission critical rigs and computer racks, hubs and routers, security systems and facility operation systems. The health of these batteries is critical to the success and completion of our operations, testing and research. Any battery string in any one of these UPS systems and battery backed up security systems is principal to the operation of this facility.
In the past we have outsourced battery maintenance and replacement. We here at NASA Glenn have to be innovative. This has created a foundation to grow and yet economize. One way is using the newest state of the art of equipment i.e. [The Soc140]. As we have shopped for and researched the market for battery health testers, we have found the Soc140 to be ideal for our needs to keep our backup systems running at optimum performance and support in battery longevity, as well as battery matching solutions.
We the management as well as the skilled tradesmen feel this equipment is very effective in isolating trouble spots in our battery strings. We have 20 to 30 large UPS’s and a myriad of smaller back-up systems requiring maintenance and we’re confident the SOC 140 will do the job. This research facility is an excellent proving ground for your equipment."
