Software Predicts Power Component Failure

LAKE WALES, Fla. — Eaton Corp. (Raleigh, N.C.) claims its cloud-based software ensures that universal power supplies (UPSes) will keep your computers up and running 24/7/365.

Called PredictPulse Insight, the software monitors the UPS's components with a rule-based algorithm that tracks the batteries' discharge history and determines when “80-to-90 percent of the UPS's lifetime has been used up for the battery, capacitors, fans, air filters, and, if equipped, the power module [inverter, rectifier and the insulated gate bipolar transistor],” said Art Mulligan, product line manager at Eaton Corp.

The UPS is just the beginning, according to Mulligan, who said its roadmap was to expand to other brands of UPS so that the single monitoring software dashboard could handle all of the UPSes in a large datacenter, and expand to other components besides the UPS.

Today PredictPulse Insight monitors over 200 data points within Eaton UPSes and is being upgraded to monitor the datapoints available for other UPS brands.

Uninterruptible Power Supplies are monitored by Eaton's cloud subscription software either daily or very 15 minutes with its status information appearing on the PredictPulse dashboard where an alarm notifies the user on their mobile device if preventative maintenance is required.
