Adjusting the floating voltage according to the ambient tempera
How does temperature affect Sealed Ups Battery?
High ambient temperature is the most important factor that affects the aging of the Sealed Ups Battery and may cause premature damage to the battery.
Higher temperature means faster chemical reaction inside the battery, which will increase water loss and corrosion.
Storage Battery Manufacturers' valve-regulated lead-acid batteries (VRLA) have a rated design life based on an optimal operating temperature of 20-25°C.
If the temperature rises by 10°C beyond this recommendation, the battery life will be reduced by half (50% reduction), which is generally accepted.
Short-term fluctuations in ambient temperature have a relatively small impact on UPS battery life. Adjusting the floating voltage according to the ambient temperature can reduce the impact of higher temperatures, but the amplitude is small.
If the ambient temperature around the battery pack cannot be effectively controlled, the possibility of premature failure of the battery will greatly increase. This can result in expensive battery replacement and system downtime.
A Sealed Ups Battery failure due to overheating can also cause the entire system to fail, which only becomes apparent when the battery pack is placed under load during a power failure.
