Sensor specialist Sensata Technologies has announced the availability of its new i-BMS battery management system (BMS) for electrified applications up to 60V. The system, developed under Sensata’s Lithium Balance product brand (acquired by Sensata earlier in the year), is a cell chemistry-agnostic, compact, integrated BMS developed for the cost-optimized mass-production of applications up to 60V, such as 2-, and 3-wheelers, automated guided vehicles (AGVs), and robotics.

According to the company, hot swap functionality and parallel battery pack support create the ability to quickly exchange depleted batteries with fully charged units. This function makes it ideal for use in applications such as material handling vehicles, delivery vehicles and drones. For electric motorbikes and three wheelers, instead of needing to recharge for several hours every evening, fully charged batteries can be rapidly installed in the field at battery swap stations, practically eliminating the need to wait and charge on the road.
