Cell Level Safety

Positive Temperature Coefficient Device

Protecting the cell under external short conditions, our reversible PTC returns to high conductivity when the temperature normalizes.

Current Interrupt Device

A fuse-type device that permanently cuts off the electrical circuit when triggered by cell pressure, high temperature, or high voltage, depending on the design.

Structural Casing

Our cylindrical cells are their own mechanical support structure and first safety barrier, with no external support structures needed to operate safely.

Small Unit of Energy

Each of our cells only contains 10-18 Wh of electrical energy. So, even in a catastrophic event, Hibernium® batteries are designed to stop uncontrolled energy release and prevent propagation.

Proven Technology

All our cells undergo extensive testing and validation in Xerotech’s labs. Across substantial tests such as performance, cycle, and destructive, we make sure our cells have no secrets.

Module Level Safety

Fire Suppression

Our modules feature the market’s only fire suppression system that does not require active monitoring systems. Always on and quick-acting, this system extinguishes fires on a cell level, suppressing thermal events within seconds.

Active Thermal Management

Our Hibernium® platforms employ an active liquid thermal management system that not only keeps battery cells within safe operating limits, but also extends battery life, and improves performance.

Passive Propagation Resistance

Each battery cell is fully encapsulated in fire-retardant foam, insulating cells from each other. This limits thermal events to source and prevents the threat of propagation from reaching the rest of the module or pack.

Individual Cell Fusing

In using a wire-bonding technique, each Hibernium® pack cell is individually fused, providing cell-level short-circuit protection.

Mechanical Disconnect

The busbars within our modules are designed to disconnect cells in crashes or severe impact events to the pack. By mechanically isolating the energy to small units, we minimize the uncontrolled voltage of a compromised battery structure.

Module Level Safety

Mechanical Disconnect
Busbars within modules are designed to disconnect cells in the event of a crash or severe impact to the pack, mechanically isolating the energy to small units and minimizing the uncontrolled voltage of a comprised battery structure.
Individual Cell Fusing
Thanks to the wire-bonding technique, each of the cells used in our Hibernium® packs is individually fused, providing cell-level short-circuit protection.
Passive Propagation Resistance
Every battery cell is fully encapsulated in fire-retardant foam, insulating cells from each other. In the event of a single or multi-cell thermal runaway, the foam prevents propagation of the failure throughout the module and the pack.
Active Thermal Management
All lithium-ion chemistries require a precise Thermal Management System (TMS) to prevent thermal runaway events, extend life and improve performance. Hibernium® battery modules employ active liquid TMS, keeping each of the cells within safe operating limits.
Fire Suppression
Hibernium® battery modules feature market’s only fire suppression system that does not require active monitoring systems. It is designed as an always-on quick acting system that extinguishes fire in-situ, on a cell level. Battery cell thermal events are suppressed within seconds.

Pack Level Safety

Ingress Protection

All Hibernium® packs come with an ingress protection rating of IP97 as standard.

Over and Under Voltage Protection

In an over or under voltage scenario, a warning is issued to the operator. If no action is taken, energy sources will be disconnected from all loads before digitally locking the pack to prevent use until analysis or repair is complete.

Isolation Monitoring

Electrical stress is high during charging or driving, meaning fault or insulation degradation risk is higher. Isolation monitoring provides increased protection against electrical hazards, improving overall safety and reliability.

Over Current Protection

In an over current event, Hibernium® platforms issue an alert when approaching threshold limits. Once surpassed, the power supply is immediately halted to protect the battery and electrical components from possible damage.

Crash Detection

Xerotech batteries are equipped with advanced 3D accelerometers and gyroscopes working in tandem to monitor and detect abrupt acceleration and angular velocity changes. This way the BMS can recognize a crash’s direction and intensity and relay this info to the user.

High Voltage Interlock Monitoring

Hibernium® packs come with two high voltage interlock loops. One is for battery enclosure integrity, preventing accidental activation, while the other is for the vehicle HV system, minimizing the risk of exposed energized terminals.

Manual Service Disconnect

This component provides a disconnect for internal high voltage battery packs without the need for specialist tools to protect the battery from short circuits.

Shock and Vibration Resistance

Xerotech batteries are primed for the harshest working conditions, which is why they come with heavy-duty metal casings, reinforced housings, shock-absorbing mounts, and corrosion-resisting materials.

Pack Level Safety

Ingress Protection

All Hibernium® packs come with an ingress protection rating of IP67 as standard.
