MP-04 BASE BATTERY MANAGEMENT MODULE
Manages up to four smart Li-ion battery packs for up to 380
Whrs of battery power. Total automatic operation with system level status data such as Time-to-empty, Time-to-full, current, voltage, etc.
Integrated Smart chargers charge all battery packs
simultaneously when a charge voltage is supplied. Supports charging from weak sources like solar panels and fuel cells with outstanding efficiency and energy capture. Charging of any sized array is fast, under 2 or 3.5 hours depending on configuration. The system operates using a model similar to a notebook
computer. When DCIN voltage (18V typically) is supplied the system
gets its power from the DCIN source and the batteries are offline and
charging. When the DCIN (wall power) goes away the system switches over to battery power without interruption.
The MP-04 supports battery clustering of up to 64 smart battery packs for
greater than 6,000 watt-hours of power. The cluster acts like a single large battery but maintains the outstanding
safety of the individual notebook style smart Li-ion battery packs.
The device is supported by the FULLBATS software for monitoring the system operation or can be
interfaced by your software in ASCII using the RS232 port.
There is a complete family of DC-DC converters that optionally turn the RAW battery voltage
(SYSPOWER) into regulated DC levels. These include, 3.3V, 5V, 12V, 24V, 48V, 96V,
144V and others in design. All devices are modular and plug and play so you can create a large power system off the shelf.
