SPD Technologies Develops New Advanced Computerized Battery Monitoring System

—Free Literature Offered— SPD Technologies, headquartered in Philadelphia, Pa., has announced the development of a new advanced computerized all-cell battery monitoring system designed for use on diesel and nuclear-powered submarines and other battery power applications.

Designated the BMS-100, the new system is an advanced model of SPD's NS9055 battery monitoring system, which has been proven in submarine applications over the past three years.

The Mil-Spec battery monitoring system offers a combination of functional and cost efficiency for submarine use, where precise measurements of power status is critical.

The BMS-100 offers a new digital battery cell probe together with additional hardware and associated proprietary software packages to provide a new standard in data acquisition, prediction, reliability and ease of operation.

Included among the major features of the new BMS-100 battery monitoring system are: comprehensive monitoring—reports temperature, specific gravity, cell voltage and electrolyte level from a single probe; also electrolyte leakage detection and loss of air agitation can be added; enhanced predictive capability— automatically calculates need to recharge, and remaining off for a given operational output, adding to safety as well as contributing to elongated battery life; ease of maintenance—new transponder probe is flush with the top of batteries, simpler and more compact, eliminates other outside wires and/ or mounted apparatus on top of batteries; provides built-in diagnostics to eliminate manual checking on system status.

The company offers computer demonstrations of the BMS-100 system upon arrangement.

SPD Technologies is a leader in the design, development and manufacture of circuit breakers, switchgear and other electrical systems protection equipment for military applications.
