In order to fully extend the life of your batteries and maximize the return on
your asset investment, it is important to gain greater access to the constant
condition of each battery in your system. While quarterly or biannual preventive
maintenance is a suggested industry standard, that schedule was devised to reduce
complete battery system failure. Today's technologies allow you to record and
trend individual battery parameters providing tools necessary to actually manage
your system by comparing operational costs and the benefit of system availability.

To meet the multiple configurations found at facilities around the world, CELLWATCHTM
is designed in a truly modular fashion. For every four cells, a single DCM (data
collection module) is required. For every 254 DCM's a Control Unit is required.
And for every 31 Control Units, a Battery Monitoring Unit is required.
Ease of Installation
The CELLWATCHTM system is easy to install.
Simple fiber optic cable connects multiple DCM's so there is no need for traditional
harness systems. Lightweight DCM's are affixed either directly to batteries
or to surrounding racks.
The CELLWATCHTM software is designed
for plug and play compatibility. The intuitive system setup and configuration
is operated via Windows controls. Battery testing is conducted on a scheduled
basis and alarm warnings are easy to analyze.
CELLWATCHTM can be implemented as a freestanding monitoring product
or can be coupled with Precise Power's DigiTech service to filter data
through your existing network at a fraction of the cost.
DigiTech can be used in combination with all major manufactured battery
monitoring systems to be included as part of your enterprise asset management
