AXXRSBBU7 Intel 3.7v 1350Mah Li-Ion Raid Smart Battery Backup For 6GB SAS Raid Controller.
THIS INTEL RAID SMART BATTERY AXXRSBBU7 MONITORS THE VOLTAGE LEVEL OF THE DRAM MODULES ON THE RAID CONTROLLER. IF THE VOLTAGE DROPS BELOW A PREDEFINED LEVEL, THIS SMART BATTERY SWITCHES THE MEMORY POWER SOURCE FROM THE RAID CONTROLLER TO THE BATTERY PACK. THIS BATTERY PACK PROVIDES POWER FOR THE MEMORY UNTIL THE VOLTAGE RETURNS TO AN ACCEPTABLE LEVEL, AT WHICH TIME THE SMART BATTERY CIRCUIT BOARD SWITCHES THE POWER SOURCE BACK TO THE RAID CONTROLLER. CACHED DATA IS THEN WRITTEN TO THE STORAGE DEVICES WITH NO LOSS OF DATA. THIS SMART BATTERY PROVIDES ADDITIONAL FAULT TOLERANCE WHEN USED WITH AN UPS.
- PRODUCT TYPE: STORAGE CONTROLLER BATTERY
- BATTERY CHEMISTRY: LITHIUM ION (LI-ION)
- BATTERY CAPACITY: 1350 MAH
- OUTPUT VOLTAGE: 3.7 V DC
- BATTERY RECHARGEABLE: YES
- MAXIMUM BATTERY RECHARGE TIME: 4 HOUR
Computer servers have RAID controllers. RAID is a short form for Redundant Array Independent Disk that sits between the operating system and data storage devices. As the name suggests, RAID provides redundancy and improves the performance of disk storage devices. RAID controllers virtualize the storage drives into different groups that possess both data protection and redundancy features.
Why Do RAID Controllers Need Batteries?
Any RAID Controller should have a battery to avoid data loss when there is a power outage on the mainline. The batteries can be smart cache, capacitors, or lithium-ion batteries. When the main power goes out before the data write to the cache is completed, it can be lost. As a result, controllers, not necessarily RAID controllers, switch to the backup battery to complete the write sequence. You should ensure that the battery controller is in good working condition.
Controller Battery by Voltage
Different servers have different controller models. That means that the controller batteries also must have varying specifications. Apart from the physical size, the voltage rating is a crucial factor to consider. There are different battery ratings for different systems. For example, you will need 4.3V batteries for DL580 servers and 4.8V batteries for P-series controllers. Similarly, the 7.2V battery is for HP ProLiant BI460C servers. Check the voltage rating of the controller battery to ensure that it matches that which your system has. Any deviation can lead to costly disasters.
Battery Controller for Different Applications
Controller batteries are application-specific. You can only shop for a new battery after knowing the target device. Otherwise, it will just be a waste of time and resources. Dell PERC controller batteries are for PowerEdge servers, and HP controller batteries are for P-series servers. You cannot exchange the tow or any other battery controller. As a piece of advice, always consult with technical experts if not sure about the controller battery you need to buy.
