Nexceris will be showcasing its recently developed monitoring product for batteries, Li-ion Tamer™, offering an added layer of safety for lithium ion battery systems.
The system allows for constant monitoring and provides warning to the battery management system for making preventative actions that save equipment, facilities and lives.
Li-ion batteries have experienced catastrophic failures that have resulted in loss of property and damage to the emerging industry’s image. Consumers want systems to be totally safe and secure and will demand content to avoid hazards. Overcharged, degraded, and damaged batteries can emit hazardous gases that can cause fires if left unchecked.
The product is ideal for marine, stationary, and residential power systems where safety is paramount. Li-ion Tamer™ was supported by the U.S. Navy to provide protect high value locations where batteries are used and stored.
Leveraging its ceramic gas sensor technology platform, Nexceris developed its monitoring system based on early detection of battery degradation. Nexceris’ off-gas monitor enables detection of electrolyte leaks from battery cells with sufficient early warning to mitigate thermal runaway.
Detection capability has been demonstrated for a broad range of common battery electrolytes, including dimethyl carbonate, diethyl carbonate and methyl ethyl carbonate, enabling use of this monitoring approach across all common lithium ion battery chemistries.
