Safety Technology In Action

20mm Nail Penetration Test - 100% SOC - Full Pack

This video demonstrates the difference our safety features make in the unlikely event of a catastrophic incident. The 20mm nail penetration test closely represents the risks a mining vehicle may encounter with steel rebar. After puncture, our batteries keep fire and thermal runaway suppressed to the cell level vs total failure of the control pack.

The pack utilized in this test contains EnerCore NCA Cells and 72.6 kWh of energy at 100% SoC (465V).

Xerotech: Drop Test - Cinematic Edit

Our batteries are equipped with industry-leading shock and vibration resistance technology to cater to the heavy machinery and rugged environments our customers work with. Discover what happens when a 522kg battery pack is dropped from a height of two meters... twice.

Xerotech: Thermal Runaway Test - Cinematic Edit

Our batteries are of industry-leading safety standards because we push them beyond what's expected during testing. This is what happens when a battery cell in a Xerotech Hibernium® pack is overheated until it explodes.

This pack utilizes EnerCore NCA cells and contains 72.6 KWh of energy at 100% SoC (465V).

UL2580 Hot Wire Test - 100% SOC - Full Pack

This thermal runaway test has been conducted by manually forcing a cell into thermal runaway within a pack.

Our multilayered approach to battery safety prevents propagation of thermal runaway beyond the initiator cell. This strategy of containment and small units of energy results in high system-level safety and fail operational characteristics for mission critical applications.

UL2580 Hot Wire Module Stack Test - 100% SoC - Coolant

The purpose of this test is to demonstrate resistance to both intramodule and cross-module propagation. The module stack uses EnerCore NCA cells (5 Ah - 2170) charged to 100% SoC and is filled with coolant and is placed in the centre of a stack of modules.

This thermal runaway test has been conducted by manually forcing a single cell into thermal runaway using a heater wire wrapped around it. The result shows that thermal propagation does not occur and the thermal runaway is contained and does not spread to the rest of the module nor to adjacent modules.

UL2580 Hot Wire Test - 100% SoC - Coolant

This video demonstrates the difference our passive safety features make in the worst-case scenario of a thermal event at 100% state of charge (SOC). The module uses EnerCore NCA cells (5 Ah - 2170) charged to 100% SoC and is filled with coolant.

This thermal runaway test has been conducted by manually forcing a single cell into thermal runaway using a heater wire wrapped around it. The result shows that thermal propagation does not occur and the thermal runaway is contained and does not spread to the rest of the module.

UL2580 Hot Wire Test - 30% SoC - No Coolant

This thermal runaway test has been conducted using a dry module at 30% SOC to simulate a shipping or storage condition. Our multilayered approach to battery safety prevents propagation of thermal runaway beyond the initiator cell.

This strategy of containment and small units of energy results in high system-level safety and fail operational characteristics for mission critical applications.

The module uses EnerCore NCA cells (5 Ah - 2170) charged to 30% SOC and has no coolant inside.
