Introduction:

The batteries have become an essential role in supporting the various backup feeding systems for all business sectors, in terms of providing electrical power for the basic and important operations of the equipment and critical electrical loads, to work in high readiness in the event of outage in electrical

 

The importance of testing batteries:
  • To verify that the battery test conforms to the specifications provided by the manufacturer and included in the technical data sheet.
  • To Ensuring the safety of the battery work by monitoring the test reports periodically.
  • Evaluating the technical condition of the battery and taking actions to prevent the breakdown of the associated electrical loads.
  • To determine the appropriate time to replace the batteries in the power backup systems by checking the internal resistance.
The most important targeted applications for this service:
  • Data Center.
  • Financial Institutions.
  • Back-up systems (UPS, Inverter, ….).
  • Photovoltaic systems and Wind turbines.
  • Mission critical facilities (Finance, Hospital, Airport, Broadcasting, Military, ….)
  • Alarm and Control systems.
  • Oil & Gas (supporting electromagnetic valves and cathodic protectors)
  • Telecom terminals (-48V communication DC source)
To ensure the accuracy of the measurement results, the Middle East Center is distinguished by:
  • Measuring devices used from the most famous companies in this field.
  • Having a trained and specialized team to lead the measurement and examination operations, and analyze the results.
  • Issuing highly professional reports using advanced software.
  • An approved procedure for each measurement.
  • Most measurements are made according to international standards and specifications.
The Middle East Center (MEC) performs Batteries test of VRLA batteries type (Valve Regulated Lead Acid Batteries), which includes:
  • Batteries with AGM Technology (Absorbed Glass Matte).
  • Batteries with GEL Technology.
  • With accordance to the IEEE 1188 Standard: "Recommended Practice for Maintenance, Testing and Replacement of Valve-Regulated Lead-Acid "VRLA" Batteries for Stationary Applications".
