Well, your backup system. If you have a normal system in a temperature controlled environment you’re probably six months to a year having to kind of service it or look at it whether it’s our team coming out to give you a thorough walkthrough and go through the whole entire unit and cleaning and check all the batteries, do the impedance tests and or do a load test as required.
If it’s more of a industrial environment that you’re going to see extreme heat changes from cold to hot, to dirt, to gas scenarios to say it’s a tar sands application where the batteries get very dirty and you can get conduction from the actual material that gets on the battery. You may want to be doing a battery maintenance every three to six months even in some applications that are remote that don’t require a lot and they’re running like a 20 year product. You could probably get away with a two to five-year time span of doing service.
So it all depends on which application we’re doing and what the customer needs. So we can recommend what they need if they want to do it themselves and or what a lot of customers do is they do the monthly to the three months to the six month and then they call the same yearly and then that yearly PM or program also gives them backing to can to their insurance company to say yes, our batteries have been serviced and our UPS has been checked and that’s full document saying that your insurance company now has the proof that you’ve done your due diligence in keeping that backup application working.
