Battery Safety and Environmental Concerns
Battery systems and Battery rooms are regulated by a number of fire safety and environmental standards and codes. Proper interpretation of these codes is essential In The design and implementation of data centers and network rooms.It is important for data center designers to have a clear understanding of The fire safety and environmental regulations as they apply to UPS Battery installations. While most commercial Battery back-up systems fall below government-required reporting levels, very large UPS and DC plant batteries may have to comply. Failure to comply can result In costly penalties. environmental compliance focuses on The amount of sulfuric acid and lead at a particular location. power ratings for VRLA batteries and modular Battery cartridges (MBC) are much higher than for flooded batteries at The same reporting threshold. this course offers a high level summary of The regulations and provides guidance for locating sources of regulatory information. Course Credits: * This course has been approved by Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) for one (1) PDH * This course is recognized for continuing education credit from IFMA for CFM/FMP Maintenance Points.
