Li-Ion Cell and Battery Pack Swelling, Reliability and Safety Monitoring
Cell Swelling Monitoring:
The CSS is ideal for research and development of new high-performance cell and electrode technologies. The ultra-thin form factor allows the CSS to be placed between cells, or cells and pack casing, to monitor pressure changes with cycling. The CSS can also be used in "dual mode" to simultaneously monitor both cell pressures and temperature.
Cell Gassing Detection for Reliability and Safety Monitoring:
A common indication of potential cell failure or possible safety event, is internal gas generation. The high accuracy of the CSS allows it to detect even minor increases due to cell gassing.
Battery Pack Monitoring:
The CSS can also be placed at key points around the battery pack to monitor swelling or stress within the pack. Malfunctioning battery cells generate gases that lead to abnormal pressure increase. Such events can be detected and possibly even mitigated using our product.
