NorthStar ACE® for Reserve Power

NorthStar ACE® will improve your efficiency at every stage of the battery life cycle: from warehousing, through installation and operation, to battery replacement. By providing customers with more control over their batteries, NorthStar believes it is possible to significantly increase the battery life. 

The embedded sensor in each ACE battery allows the user to retrieve real time and historical performance data wirelessly from the batteries. As the sensor is installed during manufacturing, there is no need to manually attach a monitoring solution to each battery, saving both time and cost. 

Local access is provided through the use of the smartphone / tablet app and remote access and integration can be solved by using our Software Development Kit

Even the most skilled technician can forget vital steps when installing batteries which is why NorhtStar developed the step-by-step installation support for our customers. Each step is detailed in the smartphone app ensuring technicians install batteries in a streamlined and conformed way. At the end of the installation guide, the app will automatically generate a report that can be shared with supervisors or co-workers through emails or messaging apps.

Furthermore, each battery has a unique serial number enabling customers to see which battery has been installed on which site, making asset management more simplified and efficient.
