Cell Application

Cell Characterization

We strive for the best match between your application and the available technologies. Cleantron can select the most appropriate cell technology matching your demands in terms of performance and reliability. We can do this based on our extensive knowledge and insights in the different Cell Chemistry Characteristics. Being an (Cell supplier) independent player, we have an objective view on this field of expertise. We review crucial parameters like Cycle Life, Calendar Life, Energy content (Capacity) and Power (Current). Mainstream Cell Chemistries do have different characteristics:

At the Cleantron Laboratory we are continuously testing a broad variation of Cells of existing and new Cell Suppliers. This we do in order to characterize the Cells. This results eventually in Data Sets that we can use in our Cleantron Battery Management Systems (BMS). Furthermore, to ensure high quality Battery Modules and Packs, the testing and traceability of the Cells plays a key role in the production process. This is done by quality control at the supplier’s site, in-line cell testing at Cleantron and by (remote) monitoring. The industrialized assembly method that, allows a great consistency in the quality level of the products. This in turn also leads to greener production compared to current business practices in the global market.

R&D

To maintain the ability to offer the best solutions in the future, Cleantron is constantly in touch with Cell manufacturers, Universities and knowledge institutes, to keep our knowledge of Advanced Battery Management Technology up-to -date. As part of this, Cleantron is actively following developments in the field of Solid-State Batteries, where the expected improved safety and power density will be able to further increase the safety and performance of our products. Besides this, Cleantron is also constantly monitoring the market for incremental improvements in Cell technology, such as different electrode materials and electrolytes.

Advanced Battery Management

Sensing Technology

It is all about Sensing and Sense Making. At Cleantron the focus for Battery Management is on advancing the way we understand the Data that is gathered from the Cells. By developing smart algorithms, that understand what is sensed by the sensors in the BMS, the strategy for managing the Battery Cells can be chosen more suitably. These sense making approaches trace back to our extensive knowledge of Battery Cells, and cooperation with Universities, and as such are being constantly improved to push for even better Battery management.
This approach, together with the drive to create more affordable, greener, and more optimal battery packs, has led to the following advanced battery management being equipped in most Cleantron products.

Battery Innovation (MPC, High Power MPC)

To extent the capabilities of Cleantron Battery Modules beyond the application of singular Modules, a series of intelligent innovations have been realised. These multi-pack setups all employ a distributed control methodology that interfaces via CAN communication, however, differ in their application and benefits.

  • MPC: Parallel Discharging
    Cleantron’s MPC (Multi Pack Configuration) Technology allows for parallel or sequential charging and discharging of battery packs that are connected in parallel. This flexibility allows for either a higher system current, longer cycle life or more flexibility depending on the configuration and the use case. Normally connecting packs in parallel can lead to dangerous overcharging effects between the packs, but this is not the case with Cleantron’s innovation, where intelligent inter-BMS communication is used to safely control the charging and discharging of the packs. Due to this, an MPC setup can be applied with any number of Battery Packs and is therefore suitable for a wide range of applications.
  • High Power MPC: Power & Portable Capacity
    The HP-MPC (High Power-Multi Pack Configuration) Technology is Cleantron’s solution to the industry demand for high power battery systems that allow for removable batteries. HP-MPC allows for high-power, optionally cooled, battery pack to be fixed in a vehicle where it will supply the power requests of the application. This pack is paired with a number of portable high-energy battery packs that extent the range of the vehicle by charging the fixed battery pack. Due to the portability this even allows for instantaneous ‘re-filling’ of the vehicle’s energy supply, thus making it ideal for medium long journeys.
