HIbernium™

XEROTECH’S MODULAR BATTERY PLATFORM

1

Battery Cells

Xerotech’s packs and modules are chemistry agnostic, which means we can use NMC, LFP and NCA. Standardizing on the 2170 cylindrical battery format allows us to choose the best chemistry for each application and continually stay up to date with the latest chemistry advancements.

2

Scalable Modules

Flexible and customizable design acts as a building block which allows for custom packs without needing months / years of additional R&D for each prototype

3

Passive Propagation Technology

The risk of thermal propagation is virtually eliminated by using a specially engineered fire-retardant structural foam.

4

Thermal Management

Xerotech’s proprietary Xerotherm™ technology provides market leading heat transfer keeping the pack at optimum temperature at all times.

5

Battery Management System

Xerotech’s BMS are built on a highly configurable platform, allowing it to support a wide variety of architectures, and driving lower cost and a faster time to market when compared to peers

About Hibernium™

The battery system is the core of your new electric vehicle and powers everything. It consists of battery modules, battery management system, battery disconnect unit and overall pack housing.  Xerotech’s battery platform, Hibernium™ is built on a modular platform, allowing for high flexibility and economies of scale. All of our packs are built with:

  1. Battery cells
  2. Scalable modules
  3. Xerotherm™ liquid thermal management
  4. Passive Propagation Resistant technology
  5. Battery Management System

Key Features

A COMPLETE PACKAGE TO ENSURE A SEAMLESS MOVE TO ELECTRIC DRIVE

Design your own battery system from 15kWh to 300kWh in 10kWh increments

A modular design means ultimate flexibility. With Xerotech’s Hibernium™ platform you get access to seven sizes of modules and freedom to choose battery cell chemistry. 

Xerotech’s proprietary Xerotherm™ technology provides high heat transfer keeping the pack at optimum temperature at all times

The risk of thermal propagation is virtually eliminated by using a specially engineered fire-retardant structural foam.

Our battery systems come pre-integrated with On-Board Chargers, DC-DC Converters and Thermal Systems.

Xerotech’s packs are chemistry agnostic, allowing us to use the most suitable technology for each application, and adapt and change as new cells come to market

Scalable Platform

SHARED COMPONENTS ENABLE ECONOMIES OF SCALE FOR LOW VOLUME MARKETS

design flexibility

Scalability

With cell agnostic design and over seven variants of modules, Xerotech can offer hundreds of pack configurations using the same manufacturing lines, processes and tooling.

Stackability

Our modules can be stacked allowing direct liquid interconnection and bus bar connection. This eliminates virtually all wiring and plumbing harnesses within the pack. Packs can be stacked to achieve very high capacities beyond the common platform while still leveraging economies of scale.

Configurations

Skateboards,  regular blocks, transmission tunnel and many more configurations can be achieved from standard modules. 

SAFETY FIRST DESIGN

MODULE DESIGN PREVENTS PROPOGATION OF THERMAL RUNAWAY

Xerotech’s safety first design is an enabling technology for applications where uncontrolled thermal runaway represents a major risk to infrastructure beyond just the vehicle and passenger. In the highly unlikely event of an internal cell failure, foam potting will contain the heat to a single cell and prevent neighbouring cells from reaching thermal runaway. Natural thermal insulation by the foam shields the battery cells from potentially harsh temperatures outside of the pack during normal operation.

best in class safety

Passive Propagation Resistance

The risk of thermal propagation is virtually eliminated with Xerotech’s proprietary module design by using a specially engineered fire-retardant structural foam. It’s 85% lighter than solutions used by leading electric vehicle manufacturers.

Failure Suppression

The combination of fire-retardant thermally insulating foam and an extremely conductive thermal management system results in a highly-robust and safe battery system.

Thermal Management

XEROTHERM™

Xerotech’s patented integrated thermal management-passive propagation resistance technology represents a complete step-change battery module design.  Our inflatable ultra-thin polymer duct has been nano-engineered for exceptionally high thermal conductivity while also being incredibly thin – an essential element for low thermal resistance.  The polymer duct is completely supported by the foam matrix, making it impossible to burst or be punctured.

Advanced Thermal Management

  • Direct liquid cooling of each battery cell
  • No Thermal Interface Material (TIM)
  • Nano-engineered thermoconductive polymer film
  • Corrosion free
  • Lightweight foam encapsulation
 

Fluid Flow Optimization

  • Direct interconnection of modules and optimized parallel flow paths enable significantly increased flowrates resulting in lower cross-pack thermal gradients and differential aging of the battery. 
  • The combination of fire-retardant thermally insulating foam and an extremely conductive thermal management system results in a highly-robust and safe battery system.
