The Most Modern Integrated Battery Management, Monitoring, Alert and Charge-Balancing System on the Market

Patented Battery management system with Equalizing/Balancing, charging voltage regulation and remote maintenance helps prevent unnoticed or unexpected battery failures, enhances battery life and conserves reliability of every single battery cell.

Equalizing / Balancing to the highest standard

The GENEREX BACS® (Battery Analysis & Care System) is the most advanced product of its kind on the market today. A web-based integrated battery monitoring and management system, BACS® uses web management technology to monitor the temperature, internal resistance, and voltage of every single battery in a given system.

The patented Equalizing / Balancing voltage compensation process converges the voltage of all batteries in the bank to the target value set in the charge controller and keeps all batteries in the optimal operating voltage range. This keeps the availability and capacity of every single battery at or near 100%.

GENEREX BACS Distributor for Canada

Davicom is pleased to offer the Generex BACS system in Canada as a complementary product to our Cortex remote site management systems. We provide local support in both English and French, keep stock for urgent replacements and can customize Generex equipment cabinets to meet specific requirements.

Components-that make up a BACS system


BACS modules: The local control elements

The BACS battery modules are not stand-alone units, but are rather the executing systems that handle the continuous monitoring of the individual battery blocks within a BACS system. BACS is not, however, limited to collecting and displaying the data collected about the voltage, temperature and interior resistance:

With the help of our patented equalizing technology, the individual status of each battery is then analyzed and supplied with the respective, optimum charging current, which not only protects the batteries and optimizes performance, it also increases the efficiency of the entire system.

How the BACS Modules Work

A UPS generally executes the charging process based on the least charged batteries as they ultimately define the performance capacity of all batteries. Since all batteries are linked in series, the UPS has difficulty determining which battery requires the maximum charging current and which battery is already fully charged.

Without BACS, this charging current has to be taken in and transferred by all batteries throughout the entire charging process, regardless of the existing individual charging status. That means the UPS has to provide more output than actually required and the batteries take in more energy than they can handle.

Since the energy has to go somewhere, it is converted into, among other things, heat which, in the medium-term, permanently damages the internal battery chemistry. This is where the BACS modules intervene in the charging process and open a bypass that conducts the excess energy around the battery which relieves the charger of the UPS:

The charging current is conducted to exactly where it is needed. The UPS itself thus operates more efficiently and the batteries are actively protected against damage due to overloads.


The BACS WEBMANAGER is the central control unit for every BACS system

All of the information about the individual batteries and the respective individual statuses collected from the BACS battery modules is compiled here. The BACS web manager evaluates all of the data in real time and sends necessary control commands to the BACS battery modules, based on the data, to keep the batteries in the optimum charging state.

If deviations arise, the web manager can, if needed, issue recommendations and, in the event of an emergency, even take active emergency measures to, for instance, prevent a battery from thermally overloading.

Precisely because of the option to actively manage batteries, BACS is compatible with all types of batteries currently available on the market. Ultimately, the type of battery you want to use determines the impact of the active management:

For instance, if a lithium-based battery technology is used in the UPS solution, an active charging control is required for technical reasons. A lead-based battery technology, however, is more robust. From a technical perspective, it can also be monitored by a pure monitoring system without charging control, but will wear out relatively quickly. The service life is approximately 1/3 of the design life specified by the manufacturer. Using BACS improves the service life and the general performance by up to 50%. Some batteries can even be used for the entire design life specified by the manufacturer and then, only the battery has to be replaced and not, as usual, all the batteries within a battery string.


BACS Software Tools - Powerful Software From Experts, For Experts

Most battery failures seem random and coincidental. That is because conventional monitoring systems passively observe the current system status, so, at best, you can watch the death of a battery.

The data required for the active control process, when precisely analyzed, can provide initial indications of, for instance, poor-quality charging current, unusual temperature fluctuations within a battery or premature voltage drops during the discharging process, unusually high internal resistance, etc.

Hidden damage can be detected via a variety of minor quality losses that normally fall through the cracks. With the BACS®VIEWER and a bit of practice working with the features, the probability that an individual battery will fail can be determined, reliable statements about the overall status of the system can be made and maintenance windows can be reduced to the absolutely necessary minimum.

As a bonus, you can use the tools to automatically generate a statistical report including the status of a battery system.
