Pro Battery Safety CAN Sensor
This CAN based Battery Safety Sensor measures:
- Absolute pressure from 0.3 to 1.2 Bar,
- Air Temperature from -40 to 125 degrees C,
- Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs),
- Absolute Humidity in mg/m^3,
- Relative Humidity from 0-100%,
- Dew point temperature,
- Shock load and duration up to +/-24G
The configurable CAN bus speed and address along with the supplied DBC file allows easy integration into almost any vehicle with battery systems to detect early failures due to cell venting or formation of moisture within a battery pack.
Watch our own experiment here: Battery Safety Sensor from Metis Engineering detects venting and thermal runaway.
The Production Battery Safety Sensor can also be used for vehicle HVAC systems to access air quality. The unit features a low power mode in which it monitors the environment but does not transmit on CAN unless a threshold is reached at which point it reverts to normal mode. It also features a low side drive function pin capable of 500mA that can be triggered if a threshold is reached.
The 5-pin automotive Molex Nano-Fit Power connector, small size and mass allows easy interface into most vehicles. The unit is developed in accordance with ISO26262 and has been tested to automotive standards which include: ISO7637-2 2011, ISO 17650- 2 2012 and ISO 17650-4 2010.
