Lithionator DRV Series

Lithionator DRV Series

Product Description

Lithionator® DRV is a CAN-Bus based battery system concept for propelled vehicles (electrical drives) of any kind and covers system voltages from 48 to 480 V (up to 750 V is optional possible). It is a modular concept. The housings are made from polystyrene (UL 94-V0). Per module 6 to 16 cells can be used. The modules have a slave electronic and are connected in series. The slaves are connected to the master electronic and are communicating with it.

Actively the balancing of the individual cells is handled by the “slaves”. The “master” observes the whole system including the discharge current (via Hall-sensor) and switches the discharge relay (Kilovac) and the charge relay (Panasonic or Kilovac). For visualisation of all information a 5.7’’-colour-screen with elective analogue or digital dashboard is available. Optional to the “master” connectable components are modules for insulation detection and interfaces as CAN to USB (computer) or CAN on Rasberry Pi.

Following scheme shows the detailed function of the system:
