Solutions for BMS development
This week’s Hannover Messe will see Scienlab present its engineering services and products for the entire development chain of battery management systems (BMS) on Linear Technology’s stand – H23, Hall 9.
In addition to its energy storage test system for characterisation of cells, Scienlab will also present a BMS test environment for BMS development and validation, as well as newly developed Module Monitoring Electronics using Linear Technology’s LTC6804 multi-cell battery monitor.
The LTC6804 is a third generation multi-cell battery stack monitor that measures up to 12 series connected battery cells with a total measurement error of less than 1.2mV. The cell measurement range of 0V to 5V makes the LTC6804 suitable for most battery chemistries. With six programmable third order low pass filter settings, the LTC6804 data acquisition rate and noise reduction can be optimised for the application. In the fastest ADC mode, the LTC6804 can measure all 12 cells within 290µs.
The BMS development at Scienlab is based on the V-model, which comprises the phases of design, implementation and testing.
