Do you know that a small power outage can cause a big problem?

Data centre

When there is a power failure, the backup power with the UPS batteries switches on. This concerns both big companies and data centres as well as air ports and hospitals. New UPS-batteries are expected to work up to 15 years, a few of them will deteriorate after a few years whereas others might be faulty from the start.

If the UPS batteries are not working correctly, companies will experience great losses. For data centres it might be the loss of money, for example the stock market or banks, whereas hospitals might lose lives, all due to that the backup power won’t switch on as it should.

W&D Group is a Swedish company, that focuses on digitality, flexibility and is always available to provide data analysis on your batteries. We have a collaboration with the best battery monitoring system: Batscan. Batscan is the leading battery monitoring system in Sweden. It’s a Swedish invention and has been developed for 30 years.

Batscan continuously monitors each block or cell in the batteries. If a measured value differs from normal an alarm will be triggered and actions to correct the problem can be taken immediately. This way the battery can always be kept in optimal condition and well prepared for a power outage.

Batscan has a solid list of customers, including:
Facebook – Data centres in Europe
Equinix  in Sweden
Nasdaq Nordic (OMXS)
Swedavia Airports – Göteborg-Landvetter Airport, Malmö-Sturup Airport and Stockholm-Arlanda Airport.
