EMS-4SB20-V2

To purchase EPS products please visit our list of authorized distributors here.

• EMS-4SB20-V2 Product Description:

EMS-4SB20-V2 are sense boards that can be connected together to form a daisy chain. Each sense board is to be mounted on top of a 4-cell 20Ah Li-ion battery pack, and it measures voltages and temperatures of the 4 cells. Cell balancing function is built in. Voltage and temperature results are fed to the computer unit through daisy chain connection. The cell type supported is GBS 20Ah cells. This version (V2) of sense board strings can be interconnected extending the number of cells within a pack up to 16 in series. The computer unit, the optional LCD screen and optional CANBUS or MODBUS communication interface are sold separately.

This version of sense board strings is best suited for pack voltage of 48V or below.

• Energy Management System (EMS) Parts Ordering

The following parts need to be ordered based on your battery pack requirement:

  - 1x EMS-CPU.
    EMS-CPU package includes a system computer, a shunt sensor for pack current
    measurement and a cable connecting the CPU to daisy chain of 4-cell strings.
  - A number of EMS-4SB20-V2, EMS-4SB-V7 or EMS-4SB200-V7 sense
    board strings. Each sense board string contains four sense boards connected as
    a 4-cell string. EMS-4SB-V7 strings are for 40Ah, 60Ah and 100Ah cells,
    EMS-4SB20-V2 strings are for 20Ah cells, and EMS-4SB200-V7 strings are for
    200Ah cells. EMS-4SB20-V2 strings can support up to a 16-cell (48V) pack.
    EMS-4SB-V7 and EMS-4SB200-V7 sense board strings support up to a 140-cell
    (500V) pack. If you have a 60-cell 100Ah pack, you will need 15x EMS-4SB-V7
    strings to be daisy chained together.
  - 1x EMS-LCD (optional). An optional LCD screen for display.
  - 1x EMS-CAN (optional) or EMS-MOD (optional). An optional CANBUS or MODBUS
    communication interface for data export.
