The law of nature is always valid – the power of the cells

Question: I wish to compare three cells from different producers. All three of them havethe same 100Ah capacity, however one is 3.6 kg, the other is 2.75 kg and the third is only 1.98 kg. How to explain this?

Answer:Well, the higher the mass of the cell, the more powerful and more reliab

The GWL/Modular Solution in Action

One of the main advantages of theGWL/Modular solution is that it comes with a complete set of documentation. The goal of this concept is that the product is fully replicable and serviceable at any location of the world by the local skilled electricians.

This is the difference between the Modular –

Details of the Emergency Output for CPM1

Pin # 1 - Main Turn-on Impulse- 150 ms pulse to GND

The pin will be connected to GND for 150 ms when the board is powered on, or after the board has been reset (and restarted).

This pin is designed to give an impulse to the bistable relay or to give a power-on impulse to the auxiliary controls

The CPM1 Emergency Voltage Levels

The Emergency Voltage levels [U Emergency] are 0.3V bellow theUminand 0.3V above theUmaxlevels. They become active if the voltage of any cells reaches these levels for 30 seconds.

U Emergency (Min)

LFP: 2.5V, 2.6V, 2.7V, 2.8V

LTO: 1.4V, 1.5V, 1.6V, 1.7V

U Emergency (Max)
