T SURE™ BATTERY MONITORING LABELS
24-7 THERMAL MONITORING
24-7 thermal monitoring for batteries
Low temperatures can be good for batteries. Their capacity is reduced by 50% at -30°C – but battery life increases by about 60%.
Higher temperatures however are not good for batteries!
Battery life is reduced at higher temperatures – for every 8°C over 25°C, battery life is cut in half.
This means for example that a VRLA battery for stationary applications specified to last for 10 years at 25°C (77°F) would only live 5 years if continuously exposed to 33°C (92°F) and 30 months if kept at a constant desert temperature of 41°C (106°F)
For many industries, understanding battery condition is critical.
Manufactured from anti-static durable oil & water resistant materials, the T Sure™ labels offer a unique visual system, helping to monitor temperatures 24-7 in a simple, low-cost, passive (non-powered) and non-maintained label.
Once fitted to the battery the TSure™ indicator strip will change from a silver/white to black, producing an irreversible colour change if activated. This will ensure that if the indicated temperature has been exceeded at any time during operation, this can be seen during routine inspection and maintenance and therefore rectified.
