Swiss battery systems manufacturer Ecovolta launched a new generation of its traction battery evoTractionBattery. The new Ecovolta lithium-ion battery is specifically designed for electric commercial vehicles, machines and boats.
The new battery system is “characterised by a high energy density of up to 172 watt-hours per kilogram of battery weight, scalability and extensive safety features”, the Swiss company says.
According to information on the Ecovolta homepage, the currently available generation also achieves up to 172 Wh/kg. Here are the specs from the official homepage:
The improved battery system works with voltages of 48 and 96 volts and are available in four different storage sizes and with interlinking options for different applications and installation spaces. The batteries can be used at up to 400 volts at the overall system level. The integrated battery management system is based on the automotive standard ISO 26262.
According to the swiss manufacturer, battery integration is ensured by standardised interfaces to various onboard chargers. In addition, the evoTractionBattery is said to have a safety concept as standard, which automatically separates defective cells from the rest of the battery pack in the event of increased current flows.
