Lithium-battery-based power supply
Great benefits are achieved for industrial, automotive, maritime and various other industries by using lithium ion battery packs. Lithium ion batteries are more powerful and provide more energy for high consumption than traditional lead batteries as they may be discharged with up to 80 % compared to the traditional 30-50 % – without damaging the battery or reducing its lifetime. The batteries are charged extremely fast, in down to 50 minutes for a 12VDC – 100Ah lithium-ion battery.
– Fast charging
– Long lifetime
– Low weight
No external components needed
All lithium ion batteries have a very advanced integrated Battery Management System (BMS) which ensures long lifetime, high efficiency, and a very accurate State of Charge (SOC) calculation.
Advanced SOC-calculations ensure that all lithium cells are kept in a balanced state at all times. The BMS has a high cell-balance current which reduces the need for active cell-balancing and restores cells to a balanced state faster. The BMS manages cell-balancing of each single cell in charge, discharge, and idle mode.
Each lithium ion battery has an extended interface which allows it to control power distribution for different consumers. The interface may also control alternative chargers, solar panels, gen-sets, and other charging devices. Control of external devices is ensured via several communications, wake-ups, and input and output pins.
A lithium ion battery works as the main controller in a complete power system. The battery manages power distribution and the priority of operation of different power consumers.
Automotive Power Systems, Industrial Power Systems, Maritime Power Systems, Military Power Systems, Renewable Energy Clayton Power is founded at the end of the 1990s in Denmark. The company develops and produces a broad range of power products, systems and power solutions for mobile and off grid power supply, including lithium ion batteries, battery management systems, sine wave inverters, inverter/chargers and controllers.
