NFPA 111 Battery testing

Discussion created by bdpower on Apr 18, 2017

It seems to me that in NFPA 111 that the minimum requirements for testing is monthly and then a choice of either taking periodic ohmic readings on all batteries and other operating parameters (NFPA 111, 8.4.3.2) or an annual load test on all batteries and other operating parameters (NFPA 111, 8.4.3.3, 4, 5,).
Most manufacturers do not show any requirements for testing batteries so, my question is what is the minimum and maximum time frames for taking periodic ohmic readings on all batteries to be in compliance with (NFPA 111, 8.4.3.2)?
I know there are suggested guidelines so this remains open to interpretation.
