Battery backup surge protector devices are critical pieces of equipment.

These devices should be applied to backup or emergency power system scenarios, large or small. The purpose of such devices help to ensure reliability and dependability of the emergency power supply.

Battery backup systems are responsible for restoring or maintaining power to individual equipment, sensitive devices and power systems in the event the primary power source is disrupted or fails.

Battery size and number can range from small single cell units for individual devices to large banks for commercial operations.

If your electronics and electrical equipment are important enough to warrant a battery backup unit, then your back up unit/system should be important enough to warrant being protected with high quality, properly designed surge protectors.

Common Battery Back Up Applications

Individual units and larger systems are used in multiple applications for numerous electrical and electronic emergency power needs.

Common locations and uses for battery backup equipment include but are not limited to…

  • Hospitals
  • Power Plants/Sub-Stations
  • Solar Power Systems
  • Wind Power Systems
  • Data Centers
  • Telecommunication Networks
  • Satellite Communication Facilities
  • Cellular Towers
  • Fiber Optics
  • Emergency Communication Centers (911)
  • Computer Centers
  • Security Systems
  • Alarm Systems
  • Sump Pump Systems
  • Lighting Systems

Many systems and sensitive equipment use a UPS or multiple UPS’s for primary power disruptions. Uninterruptible Power Supplies are a very common emergency power devices used by both small and large entities.

In addition to uninterruptible power supply units, there are battery bank applications. These are often found in power plants, sub stations, telecommunication facilities, commercial wind and solar farms and even residential scenarios.

Battery banks are stacks or rows of batteries connected together in parallel or series. They are commonly used in support of large, multiple UPS equipment scenarios as well as other emergency power applications,

Located in vented "battery rooms" for safety, the number of batteries for power storage can range from a few units to hundreds of units or more. Common types of batteries used in these banks are often deep cycle lead-acid and NiCad.

Basic Recommended SPD Locations

Placing the right SPD, in the right location, with the right installation provides the best surge protection option.

A layered protection approach on the power side and data line protection on the signal side using high quality, Surge Protective Devices is recommended.

A layered or cascade protection approach is also a recommendation of the IEEE. This provides a best practice when protecting sensitive electronics and critical equipment.

Each battery backup surge protector scenario may be different. However, in general, these are basic SPD location recommendations for backup systems...

  • Charge Controllers
  • Inverters/Rectifiers
  • AC Distribution Panel
  • Automatic Transfer Switch
  • UPS
  • Data Lines

This approach protects the upstream inverters/rectifiers, charge controllers, distribution panels and other equipment from damaging transient voltage. As designed, this provides layered protection for the battery bank.
