APL Lithium Battery
A small, efficient, maintenance-free and rugged APL Lithium battery operating at high temperature for optimal field performance.
The APL Lithium Battery (Lithium Ferro Phosphate batteries, APL-12, APL-48) are small, efficient, maintenance-free, rugged batteries operating at high temperatures for optimal performance in the field. Each battery is fitted with a battery management system (BMS) for safety, reliability, and longevity. The BMS provides protection from over-voltage, under-voltage, over-temperature, over current, overcharging as well as managing internal cell balancing. The BMS also reacts to any fault condition and automatically resets once the fault is cleared.
Traditional lead-acid systems can be replaced with the LFP technology which can deliver more cycles and greater DoD. LFP systems are designed to offer 3 times more service cycles with smaller capacity and yet still yield the same useable storage as lead-acid systems (as lead-acid storage cannot exceed 75% DoD).
The LFP batteries work most efficiently when connected in parallel and due to the safeguards built into the BMS, it is impractical to connect them in series.
Each module includes a capacity gauge and circuit breaker for individual isolation of each module before removal.
