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.
Precise Power offers the CELLWATCHTM as part of our systems management product line. CELLWATCHTM offers advanced system features and design characteristics which provide the most spatially organized and informative product in the battery monitoring industry.

To meet the multiple configurations found at facilities around the world, CELLWATCH™ 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 CELLWATCH 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.
CELLWATCH 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 program.
