Battery Specifications and Accountability

Discharge Limits – (Voltage & Current)BatteryProtectionNotes
Continuous Discharge current540A1C continuous
Surge Discharge Current – 30 seconds1500A3C transient. Typically repeated for every lift or peak load.
Electronic Current trip limit – analogue2000AIf the electronic current limit option is enabled – Note 1*
Electronic trip Retry time – analogueTime taken after current trip to retry connection
Pre-Charge current limit – Note 1*2000AAutomatically provided if electronic current limit is enabled
Electronic Overload – DigitalOptional with either, I²t , max current, or Custom profiles
Internal Battery Fuse500AI²t = 2 050 000 A
Minimum battery voltage47.2VBattery will cutout here, regardless of indicated SOC
ABSOLUTE Minimum Battery Voltage43.4VInternal electronics Disabled! Please see battery protection.

Note 1*. Electronic current limit is optional and adjustable between 500-1000A. It will act as a automatic pre-charge for connection to inverters. For motive applications, in particular old lead machines, pre-charge or current limit prevents startup, and not desirable.


Charge Limits - (and charger settings)

Charge Limits – (and charger settings)
Maximum Continuous Charging Current400APreferred range is 100A to 150A, set for constant current CC.
End of Charge voltage56V55.6V to 56.0V max set as endpoint CV voltage
Balancing charge voltage or current56.2V56.0V-56.3V OR charge at constant current (CC) of 400mA
Charger voltage range48VCharger voltage must be within normal 48V limits.
Battery maximum voltage self cut out56.4VBattery will cutout, preventing further charging, NOTE 3*.
Peak transient charger voltage100V*Peak transient voltage after battery self disconnects
Charger Lead Inductive Energy150JNOTE 4*. However, Typical 2m length lead installations are of no concern.
NOTE 3*. If battery self cuts out from over voltage it will still be available for discharge through reverse diode.

NOTE 4*. This is the maximum charger lead Inductive energy battery cutout can absorb ( 1/2 I²L < 75J ).


NOTE 1*. When the internal electronics are disabled, the battery enters a dormant state. In this state the battery will be inactive, not connected and not available for normal recharge or use. It can be recharged but it MUST be recharged with a constant current that must not exceed 500mA (450mA preferred) and voltage less than 65V (e.g. Balancell hockey PUK charger). If left for more than 6 months in this dormant state, then it should NOT be recharged and battery needs to be returned for a service and cell checkup.
