Leclanché has developed a modular, all-in-one battery system optimized for powering new and retrofit hybrid and electric commercial vehicles.
The INT-39 Energy HV pack is a fully integrated product comprised of Leclanché’s M2 battery modules and the company’s proprietary BMS. It also features built-in liquid cooling and thermal hazard protection.
“INT-39 Energy is a high-energy, safe and efficient lithium-ion battery pack enabling commercial vehicle manufacturers to more easily design and bring to market zero-emission EVs,” said CEO Anil Srivastava. “This plug-and-play modular solution should help drive a new and efficient generation of e-transport vehicles such as e-trucks, municipal service, construction and agricultural applications and e-buses.”
An optional IoT tool allows remote data logging and real-time access to battery status, performance and diagnostic data.
The company’s 60 Ah cells provide a cycle-life of 8,000 cycles at 80% depth of discharge at 1C/1C. INT-39 Energy is available as a 657-volt pack with an energy capacity of 39.4 kWh, and can be expanded to include as many as eight packs providing up to 315 kWh. The system is designed to fit where fuel tanks are normally located, but can be placed into other locations, including vehicle roofs, based on manufacturers’ preferences.
INT-39 Energy HV has been certified for on-road applications by the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe, ECE R-100.02 rev 2, which addresses the safety requirements specific to the electric powertrain of road vehicles, including rechargeable battery systems. It is also rated to ingress protection level IP65.
