BTECH’s roots stem from the Singer Corporation, world famous for its sewing machines. In the 1980s the company concentrated on a number of high technology projects, one of them focused on developing a method to predict battery failure. In 1989, When Singer Corporation was sold to Semi-Tech International for their sewing machine business and famous brand name, the engineering team working on battery failure prediction bought the license to the technology and all future patents. In the basement of the former VP of Engineering’s home, BTECH was born with the mission to commercialize the technology. The beginning years of the company were hard, as much time and effort was spent convincing the technical community that Impedance monitoring and data trending could indeed predict failure. Fast forward to today – with over 4000 global installations and a proven track record, there is no longer any doubt that our method works. Today, BTECH has incorporated 24 years worth of battery monitoring experience and data to offer the world there’s a way to virtually eliminate your battery failure risk. We’ve developed an advanced approach based on managing battery systems with real-time measurement data that is easy to implement. With this in mind, BTECH has developed the new, fifth generation S5 series battery monitoring system, and a new and comprehensive sales and service plan with the mission to help you manage your batteries – BTECH’s NEVERFAIL Battery Monitoring Partnership.

Traditional data centers are rooted in the decades-old tradition of raised floors, overprovisioned cooling and power systems that actually aren’t so efficient. They simply can’t change fast enough to keep up with the rapid pace of computing evolution. But we have. GIGA data centers are built on innovative modular technology that shatters the old high-cost, slow growth, limited flexibility model of traditional providers. We reinvented the data center because we believe cutting-edge technology should not be the exclusive domain of Hyperscale IT companies. Everyone should have access to the greater efficiency, flexibility, and reduced cost that modular can deliver.
