Cell Guard is a CAN based sensor that can measure:
- Absolute Pressure,
- Air Temperature,
- Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs),
- Absolute Air Water Content,
- Relative Humidity,
- Dew Point Temperature,
- Shock load and duration up to +/-24G (the accelerometer is an optional extra)
The configurable CAN bus speed and address along with the supplied CAN DBC file allows easy integration into almost any battery system to detect early failures due to cell venting or formation of moisture within a battery pack.
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 wake signal is generated.
The 5-pin automotive Molex Nano-Fit Power connector, small size and mass allows easy interface into most vehicles and energy systems.
For quick desktop analysis, use alongside the Cell Guard Development Kit.
The unit is developed in accordance with ISO26262 and has been tested to automotive standards which include: ISO7637-2 2011, ISO 16750- 2 2012 and ISO 16750-4 2010.
