In the seventeenth instalment of our Tech Tuesday Series, we take a bite-sized look at what goes into the technology behind our battery tech, with the seventh of our safety features at the pack level.
Pack Safety – Over Current Protection
Over Current Protection is a critical safety feature of our Hibernium® battery packs. It provides a fundamental layer of protection that helps maintain integrity and performance.
An overcurrent event could result in overheating battery system components, causing severe damage to the vehicle as well as posing a health threat to people in the vicinity.
If an overcurrent action begins, Hibernium® battery packs have a warning limit that alerts the external system if upper limits are being approached.
Once the threshold cap is reached, the power supply is instantly cut off to protect the battery and electrical equipment from possible damage.
As we shift towards an all-electric future, it is battery safety technology like this that is making electrification a reality, not just for the mass vehicle market, but for more diverse marketings such as mining, construction, aviation and agriculture too.
Tech Tuesdays Series
At Xerotech, we take battery safety very seriously. As a trusted supplier of battery technology to a wide variety of heavy industry, we believe in an ethos where batteries and battery technology should never pose a risk to people, even under the most extreme of conditions. Because of this we conduct a rigorous set of in-house tests and incorporate many different features that build in high levels of battery safety as standard. These tests are designed to push the boundaries far beyond what could be expected, even in the most demanding of conditions. It is as a direct result of this that we have developed one of the safest batteries in the world today.
Xerotech is an award-winning battery technology company that is solving one of the greatest challenges of our generation, industrial electrification. Our talented team is making an impact on a global scale, driven by a shared vision of a fully electric future.
Our Hibernium® battery pack platform is a battery pack platform that adapts to the bespoke needs of your vehicle or application. With Hibernium® you can choose your desired or preferred energy content, operating voltage range, physical dimensions, and even battery cell chemistry. There are no design or engineering costs even for one-off prototyping projects making this solution one of the only viable options for low volume, high diversity projects.
The electrification of heavy-duty machinery is now available to every OEM and Integrator.
