The Orion li-ion BMS has high immunity to harsh EMI (electrical noise) and voltage transients found in automotive environments that plague other BMS systems.
In addition to automotive uses in electric and hybrid vehicles, the Orion BMS can also be used in stationary installations such as solar or wind storage batteries and UPS systems.
|Current & Voltage Protection
Protects the battery pack from over-charge and over-discharge thereby extending cycle life
Monitors internal resistance of individual cells and the measured capacity of the battery pack
Over-temperature and under-temperature protection with fan controls for cooling or heating
|State of Charge Monitoring With Drift
Coulomb counting and dynamic drift correction are used to monitor the state of charge
|Digital & Analog Output Controls
Provides multiple methods of controlling chargers, motor controllers and other external devices
|Compatible With Almost All Li-Ion Batteries
A wide cell voltage range supports almost all lithium ion batteries and even some NiMH batteries
|Intelligent Cell Balancing
Efficient passive balancing is used to maximize the usable capacity of battery packs
Parameters such as voltage ranges, current limits and many other settings are easily field changeable.
|Automotive Grade Electrical Noise Immunity
Durable centralized design provides a high level of EMI (noise) immunity
|Dual Programmable CAN Interfaces
Fully programmable CAN messages on 2 interfaces allow integration with virtually any CAN enabled device
|Advanced Isolation Fault Detection
Actively detects breakdowns in isolation between the battery and chassis
|OBD-II Support, Trouble Codes & Freeze Frame
When faults occur a snapshot of parameters is stored for analysis and can be read by OBD-II scan tools
|Intelligent Current Limit Calculations
Constantly calculates preemptive maximum discharge & charge current limits
|Hybrid, PHEV & Electric Vehicles (EV) Features
The Orion BMS is designed with specific features for a variety of plug-in vehicles.
|Software For Data Logging & Programming
Software provided with the BMS can be used to program the BMS as well as view, log and analyze data
|Programmable Thermal Compensation
Programmable thermal compensation provides SOC and current limit compensation at various temperatures
