Alber Battery Monitoring System
When the unexpected is unacceptable
We’re Emerson Network Power, backed by Emerson, a global company that brings technology and
engineering together to provide innovative solutions for the benefit of our customers. We’re the world
leader in providing Business-Critical Continuity™ to organizations like yours, enabled by our product and
service centers of expertise.
For more than thirty years, Albér – Emerson Network Power, has dedicated its worldwide operations
to raising the bar in battery testing and monitoring. It’s what we do and we take our mission very
seriously. Today, Albér is the trusted name in many business sectors that depend on power backup
systems with mission critical battery applications.
For Battery Monitoring Systems we provide the reliability of our measuring patented technics, the flexibility of our equipment system, the savings related to the optimized useful battery life.
Keep the line on
Your battery is the heart of your backup system.
And just like your own heart, you don't want it to fail
Healty batteries make for a heltier bottom line. Mission critical
technology fuels the global economy 24/7, 365 days a year.
Downtime, even a few critical minutes, can cost you millions of dollars.
Albér monitors your batteries and prevents premature battery failures.
Albér’s Internal DC Resistance test method eliminates the uncertainty
of outdated test methods. Much like a battery ultrasound, our proven
method enables the user to “look inside” and assesses the battery’s
true condition.
This is the very reason our customers trust Albér to detect potential
battery problems before they become a major financial problem.

On-Line Portable Equipment
The Cellcorder CRT-300 Cell Resistance Tester was specially designed to strictly comply with IEEE standards
for testing batteries online.
CRT-300 Cell
Resistance Tester
When a battery is tested online, the test is subjected to ripple from the charger, which makes ohmic measurement
tests complicated. The well-proven Alber DC resistance test
method completely eliminates these distorting factors.
The Cellcorder outstrips competitive testing instruments by producing very high repeatability in testing.
The Cellcorder comes with easy keyboard entry, hard
shell carrying case, AC charger, data trending and analysis software and a user-friendly manual. An optional
