Cleantron works with world-class Cell suppliers;
The Cells that we apply are in-house characterized resulting in Data Sets. The Data Sets are used in our BMS electronics.
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.
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.
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.
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.
