BMS or battery management system is at the sharp end of looking after your Lithium cells well being. The gensis monitor BMS controls the gensis charger and balances and monitors each cell in the pack individually. The BMS also acts as SOC state of charge indicator for the gensis display and also notifies the controller of out of bounds situations including for example cell under-voltage and cell over temperature. The BMS prevents operation of the motor controller whilst on charge. Charge data can be examined in real time with either the gensis display or (optional) RS232 ethernet wireless link.
gensis monitor BMS is just one module serving max 48 cells for a typical EV battery pack ranging from 150 Volts to 200 Volts dependent on lithium chemistry. Wiring requirements are minimised to just one twin pair cable per cell of 0.5mm2 conductor size.
Fail safes are included throughout the design together with specific battery chemistry charging algorithms.
Higher voltage packs are enabled by series linking units, contact gensis for further details (option)
