Do you have generators with dual starters & battery sets for redundancy? How many battery chargers are supporting your battery sets? If you answered “one battery charger”, this is your primary risk area.
If your only battery charger fails, you no longer have the ability to charge all four batteries, and therefore have lost the redundancy that was designed into your starting system. Dual starting systems for generators and fire pumps should have dual battery chargers to ensure the highest level of reliability.
For life safety systems and mission critical systems, dual battery chargers for 24 volt systems can reduce starting risk when your systems are called upon during a power outage or fire.
