Emerson Network Power Introduces Liebert Battery Monitoring Service
The service is one of several new offerings that will be showcased at Emerson's AdaptiveXchange 2006(TM), October 18-19 in Columbus, Ohio
Columbus, Ohio [September 28, 2006] - Emerson Network Power, a business of Emerson (NYSE: EMR), and the global leader in enabling Business-Critical Continuity(TM), announced today the availability of the Liebert Battery Monitoring Service. As the most robust monitoring and service solution of its kind, the offering is designed to maximize the availability and performance of battery systems.
The Liebert Battery Monitoring Service combines state-of-the-art battery monitoring technology with proactive maintenance and service response to deliver a complete battery solution that helps companies achieve high network availability, increase useful battery life and eliminate costly downtime. Whereas traditional battery monitoring programs are reactive by nature, rely on dial-up connections to deliver alarm data, and only notify end users after a problem has occurred, Emerson Network Power's customizable Liebert solution integrates on-site and remote preventive maintenance activities with predictive maintenance to identify problems before they occur.
"With Emerson's Liebert Battery Monitoring Service, data center managers now gain the confidence of knowing the true condition of their battery systems at all times and ensuring that their batteries are available when they need them," said Jeff Donato, service product manager at Emerson Network Power Service Business. "If a problem is developing, Emerson Network Power Customer Engineers will monitor and take corrective action before the trouble turns into a serious issue and possibly causes downtime. And, if a battery were to fail, customers will know quickly not only what the problem is, but also what Emerson Network Power is doing to fix it."
The Liebert Battery Monitoring Service relies on the latest Alber battery monitoring technology, and continuously diagnoses all critical battery parameters, such as cell voltage, overall string voltage, current and temperature. It provides a constant "pulse" on the system by gathering a steady stream of information about the batteries. Once data is gathered, it is archived and trended to help identify anomalies associated before they lead to failure.
Emerson Network Power Service Business offers a wide variety of maintenance, service and management programs designed to keep critical facilities operating continuously and smoothly around the world. Emerson Network Power Service maintains the largest technical support and customer response system in the industry with more than 1,000 factory-trained and company-employed service professionals in more than 100 service centers. Offerings include UPS, battery replacement, facility power audits, DC power, mission-critical cooling services, enterprise remote monitoring, professional assessment services, and facility service management.
AdaptiveXchange (http://AX.liebert.com), formerly called Incredible Universe, attracted more than 2,000 IT, facility and data center managers to Columbus in 2004. This year's event features expanded participation from technology manufacturers Cisco, Dell, Hewlett Packard and Sun; 89,000 square feet of exhibit space showcasing simulated data center, computer room, telecommunications and remote network environments; and 48 technical sessions.
