41 Battery Management System Functions
Protect the battery Optimize the battery performance Record and store information Communication

42 Battery Management System Protection Functions
Prevent the cells in a battery from going below their low voltage threshold Prevent the cells in a battery from going above their high voltage threshold Protect cells from exceeding their temperature limit Protect cells from exceeding their current limits

43 LiFeBATT Battery Management
LiFeBATT has two different approaches to battery management in order to provide the most optimum solution for the application BMS circuit boards Used for small applications up to 100 amps VMS circuit boards Used for large applications over 100 amps

44 LiFeBATT Battery Management
BMS Circuit Boards Used for applications up to 100 amps The BMS boards have Mosfet switches on the board that can switch up to 100 amps VMS Circuit Boards Use in conjunction with external contactor relays that can switch from 100 amps to 1000 amps or more An Intermediary Module (IM) with microprocessor control is used to control the contactor relays
