Summary of Innovation
Patented EnSol Active™ battery (Patent US 9,948,115) is equipped with a High Energy Transfer Active Battery Management System (BMS). This technology makes an already efficient lithium battery even more productive.
Unlike in other lithium batteries, in EnSol Active™ energy is balanced among cells based on induction at a rate 150 times higher (up to 30A). The transfer current is driven by the voltage differential between cells. Thus, the maximum cell capacity utilization becomes possible. Importantly, the system supports weaker cells with higher internal resistance. Transfer happens among all cells simultaneously and occurs during charge, discharge, and stand-by period. Transferring charge among cells at 30A provides 10-20% higher available capacity and 50% longer lifetime.
Conventional lithium batteries become inoperable when one of the cell capacity deteriorates below 50% of nominal. In EnSol Active™ battery other cells automatically compensate the damaged cell’s capacity. This provides 10-20% higher available capacity and 50% longer lifetime.
EnSol Active™ battery delivers no-maintenance high-performance advantages of lithium batteries in the heavy environment of the material handling industry.
