Maintenance Tips DC UPS teaser
To ensure back-up systems are kept reliable and in working order, preventative maintenance is critical.

Responsible for on-site emergencies, repairs or general maintenance - the Magellan Power Service Department has these tips for a 3 Monthly Check:
  1. Is the enclosure free of dust?
  2. Check for any signs of heat damage to electrical components.
  3. Is the display working correctly and showing the correct parameters? (Voltage, current and temperature?)
  4. Check the general condition of the battery cells, ensure there is no terminal corrosion, bulging or leakage.
  5. Check the battery bank voltage using a calibrated multimeter - ensure battery cells are within the correct range.

Brookfield Rail’s Merredin office regularly sources power chargers from Magellan Power, and we always find it an easy process for new purchases and repairs. Their Sales & Repair Manager Shijo is prompt with responses to our queries, and on one occasion travelled to Merredin to meet with us, which we found extremely helpful.
