Power Agent Systems Battery Monitoring Sensor
For each monitored battery, a Power Agent Sensor Unit is
installed on the battery terminal posts. The Power Agent Sensor
uses patent-pending circuitry and algorithms to measure battery
voltage, battery temperature, and ohmic battery resistance-related
parameters that are correlated to battery capacity metrics.. The
site controller has 6 RJ-45 connectors which connect to up to 6
monitored battery strings via a ‘daisy-chain’ of common CAT-5
cabling.
The Power Agent BMS core line has three unique and advanced
components including Sensors, Site Controller and Interface.  For

Equalization System and the Voltage Alarm Transponder.
Power Agent System Battery Monitoring Interface
Standards-based SNMP interface, is the only battery
monitoring system that gives the user "freedom of choice" to
select the optimum software for the application. Our choices
include:
Power Agent Systems Battery Monitoring Site Controller
The Site Controller communicates with each of the sensors and
collects the most recent measurement data.  It checks each
measurement software is an abnormality occurs.  The Site
Controller is fully Ethernet TCP/IP compatible.  

The Site Controller applies a set of user-specified “baselines” to
each sensor’s data in order to develop and maintain a set of
battery performance metrics that can be correlated against initial
battery specifications. If any battery subsequently deteriorates
from the baseline specification in excess of user-defined
thresholds, an SNMP alert is sent to the management system via
the data network.

Each Power Agent sensor placed within a string of sensors uses
a unique patent pending technique to determine its relative
position in the string and assign itself a polling address. This
allows the Power Agent site controller to communicate with each
sensor individually via the shared daisy-chain interconnect. The
Power Agent site controller can be remotely provisioned to
collect measurements from the sensors at intervals as short as 30
seconds or as long as 1 month.
Web Based / No software
The site controller's internal web pages are all that is
necessary for many users
