Li-Rack Eco has it applications in commercial as well as domestic purpose. Li-Rack Eco is based on the active cell balancing technology for best performance and life expectancy. It is a green solution and will help us reduce our carbon footprint on mother Earth. It has internet ready storage systems, which allows user to monitor it remotely. The chemical composition is intrinsically safe in their chemistry, that is to say, they can neither burn nor explode.
The life expectancy of Li-Rack Eco is 10years* which is very high as compared to the other conventional batteries present in the market. Li-Rack Eco can be installed everywhere that is in Rural Areas, Hotels, Hospitals, Industries, and last but not the least in our homes. The range we offer is from 3.5kWh to 55.0kWh, although multiple batteries can be combined for large scale requirements. It is absolutely maintenance free.
Even without subsidies for own-use or grid feed-in tariffs, Li-Rack Eco batteries are a safe investment into your energy independence.
*Parallel scalable for higher capacities
Due to their physicochemical properties lithium cells call for a battery management system (BMS), to maximize cell capacity and to equalize the cells voltage levels. Most available BMS for Li-batteries realize passive balancing for it. Excessive energy from single fully charged cells will be wasted as heat, while other cells still get charged. For this reason passive balancing yields an efficiency of 0%! Over the years of operation the single cell's characteristics drift apart. A chain is only as strong as its weakest link - the same applies to a combination of cells: the weakest cell is responsible for decreasing battery capacity. So much for the state of the art...
And now the future comes home! Our in-house developed BMS Li-Rack Eco utilizes active balancing. The states of charge of a battery's cells are being equalized continuously among one another. That is to say, energy from higher charged cells will be transferred to lower charged ones. This results in 90% efficiency, compared to 0% with passive balancing. Additionally, active balancing increases life expectancy of Li-cells by more than 30% due to reduced drift of characteristics. Increased energy yield from the charged battery is another positive side effect: with passive balancing the depth of discharge (DoD) should not exceed 70% to provide long life expectancy of the battery. Our active balancing allows for 80% DoD without reduced life expectancy - thus 14% more energy with identical rated capacity.
Li-Rack Eco also enables communication of the battery with the inverter via CAN interface for standard inverters, as well as internet based remote monitoring of the battery independent of the inverter. In this process all relevant data like voltage, state of charge, temperature etc. will be logged and analyzed for each battery on single cell level. For instance, this allows for identification of an early seasoned cell of a battery, and arrange for its prophylactic replacement. Thus, a possible system failure can be avoided.
Regarding the lithium cells we also stand out from the usual market standard - lithium-iron phosphate (LiFePO4). Instead, we use Lithium Iron Manganese phosphate (LiFeMnPO4). The doping with Manganese will increase the cells' life expectancy and performance. The conceptual design and chemistry of our Li-cells renders them intrinsically safe, this means in case of a problem the cells can not catch fire. By the way, most cell phone or laptop batteries are not intrinsically safe! Lithium cells are almost completely recyclable. And - in contrast to lead batteries - they do not contain any hazardous material.
