Real-Time Battery Electrolyte Level Monitoring

Non-invasive system for Flooded Batteries

Milwaukee, Wisconsin — Eagle Eye Power Solutions is introducing the ELM-Series Electrolyte Level Monitoring System that monitors the electrolyte level and temperature of individual flooded batteries The ELM-Series is non-invasive and is applicable to any flooded battery regardless of voltage and amp-hour. Save time and money by continuously monitoring electrolyte levels and eliminating the need for periodic testing and battery maintenance!

How does the ELM-Series Work? 

The ELM-Series Battery Electrolyte Level Monitor will work for any flooded battery system. Each model will include (1) ELM-Monitor and as many sensors required to connect to each jar / cell. (ex: A 60 Cell system will have 60 Sensors and 1 Monitor). Utilizing low-cost, easy-to-install sensors, the system will alarm on low electrolyte level or higher than normal temperature. The sensors are simply and securely attached to each individual jar.

In the condition of a low electrolyte or temperature alarm, the sensors communicate to the system monitor and the system monitor activates a changeover relay output while simultaneously activating the appropriate alarm LED lights. The LED light will indicate either 'low electrolyte level' or 'jar over-temperature'. In the event that 4 or more jars fall to an alarm level, the monitor will trigger a group alarm in addition to the single jar alarm.

Advantages of Monitoring Electrolyte Levels:

• Continuous monitoring provides real-time battery protection - saving time & money!
• Eliminate the need for scheduled periodic testing & maintenance
• Avoid user-errors and safety-risks
• Easy-to-install, non-invasive system: No Site Surveys required!
• Four alarm contacts for external alarming
• Can easily be integrated into any facilities management or alarm system
• The ELM-Series will comply with NERC PRC-005-2 guidelines that require electrolyte level monitoring for Utilities
