BACS Battery Management System

Model # BACS-Series

The GENEREX BACS (Battery Analysis and Care System) is an integrated monitoring and management system designed for critical backup batteries.

BACS unique patented voltage battery cell balancing system ensures that all units within a string are maintained at their optimum recommended float voltage eliminating over and undercharging of units within a string to ensure maximum performance and longest life. Thermal runaway protection is included as standard. BACS also measures and records system voltage, unit voltage, unit resistance, unit and ambient temperature and load current (optional).

BACS is intended for use on up to 330 vented lead acid (VLA), valve regulated lead acid (VRLA), or nickel-cadmium (Ni-Cad) batteries. Installation of BACS is one of the most straightforward on the market.

Standard communication includes GENEREX’s BACS VIEWER battery management software for recording and trending measured parameters. BACS is entirely web based and can be installed on a private network on multiple PC’s. Networked systems can utilize SMS/Email alerts during alarm conditions. BACS can utilize Modbus or SNMP protocols for integration to a distributed control system (DCS) or SCADA (some limitations may apply).
