What is a BDS-40?
• The Alber BDS-40 is a complete battery diagnostic
system that is optimized for monitoring UPS battery
systems employing 12 volt multi-cell units installed
cabinets
• The BDS-40 can measure and store the following data

How Does the BDS-40
Work?
• The BDS-40 is permanently connected to a
battery via sense lead wiring described
later in this tutorial
• The BDS-40 continuously scans key
operating parameters for unacceptable
deviations from defined limits
• When a threshold is exceeded, the BDS-40
can be programmed to alert the user with
a number of reporting methods
4
BDS-40 Application
• Optimized monitor system for cabinet installed
12 volt VRLA UPS batteries
• All-in-one enclosure – easy installation
• Pre-manufactured sense and load module cables
• A fully configured BDS-40 system can manage
up to 6 strings of 40, 12 v jars
• The strings do not have to be on the same UPS
system or battery bus
• 480 VDC nominal maximum – 40 units, 240 cells

BDS-40 Installation
Example
6
Hardware
• A BDS-40 system requires at least one
unit called a Base Unit which can monitor
up to 1 string of 40, 12 volt jars
BDS-40 Base Unit
7
Base Unit
• There are three ports to
communicate to system computers
– Front Local Port
• RS232
– Removed and replaced with USB on XL
series
– Rear Telco Port
• If modem installed
– Rear Network Port
• RJ45 for embedded card
8
Base Unit
• The Base Unit contains 3 pieces of
equipment installed in stacked
configuration inside a common
enclosure
– Controller
– Data Collection Module (DCM)
– Load resistors (Load Module)
9
Base Unit
• Controller
• The “brain” that controls the system
– Microprocessor based
– Collects and stores data from other system
components
– Provides interface to computer and/or network
– Connected to the remaining system components
explained later
• DCM
• Load resistors
10
Base Unit
• Data Collection Module (DCM)
• The DCM acquires all readings from the
battery
– Up to 40 cell voltages
– Up to 40 cell resistances
– Up to 2 temperatures
– 1 discharge current
– 1 float current
– Up to 10 intertier connections
11
Base Unit
• Load Resistor (Load Module)
• Supports proactive DC internal resistance tests
• Applies a 30 amp load in a pre-determined
number of “steps” across several jars at a time
to make internal resistance measurements
• The load step does not shorten battery life or
harm it in any way
12
Base Unit
• A Base Units consists of three sections
Load Module
Section
DCM Section
Controller Section
13
Plus Unit
• A Plus Unit is used when the battery to be
monitored consists of more than one
string
• A fully configured BDS-40 system requires
5 Plus Units in addition to the Base Unit
• Each Plus Unit consists of one DCM and
one Load Module
14
BDS-40 Plus Unit
Plus Unit
• A Plus Unit is made up of two sections
Load Module Section
DCM Section
15
Plus Unit
• The Plus Unit connects to a Base Unit via a visible
light, non-laser fiber optic cable loop
• All Plus Units are powered from 24 VAC sourced at
the controller in the Base Unit
16
Cables and Wiring
• Prefabricated cables contain voltage/resistance
and load step wiring
• Cables provided are based on battery
configuration data
• Standard cables cut to length
and labeled.
• Generic cables without labels and
connectors are provided for odd
battery configurations.
