Sensata develops new i-BMS battery management system for applications up to 60 volts

Sensata Technologies debuted a new battery management systems at the Battery Show North America in Novi, Michigan. 

The new i-BMS battery management system from Sensata acquisition Lithium Balance is a cell chemistry-agnostic, compact, integrated BMS developed for the cost-optimized mass-production of applications up to 60 V, such as two-wheelers, three-wheelers, automated guided vehicles (AGVs) and robotics.

The system measures 65 x 200 mm, and includes a built-in pre-charge circuit, on-board current measurement, MOSFET power switches for battery disconnect, and a DC/DC power supply.

The i-BMS’s software design features parallel pack and hot swap capability, and SoX algorithms are designed to ensure high precision. The BMS CREATOR configuration software allows the battery designer to create a unique battery by defining application-specific BMS parameters and safety strategies.
