TORONTO, May 16, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Electrovaya Inc. (TSX:EFL) announces the launch of a 1kWh battery module (LITACORE1000) and an intelligent 48V, 2.3 kWh module (EV4823) as building blocks for Lithium Ion Battery Systems.
The LITACORE1000 is a 1 kWh module with integrated voltage and temperature sensors in an easy to handle Aluminum case, with laser welded contacts and features the industry leading Litacell. This module design allows OEMs, an easy building block for constructing Lithium ion battery systems.
The EV4823 is a 48V, 2.3 kWh module with an integrated intelligent battery management system (iBMSTM) complete with Canbus communications. This 48V, 2.3kWh module design allows OEMs to use these modules for myriad applications in energy storage and emobility sectors.
These two products increase Electrovaya's product line from electrodes, separators and cells by now adding higher value added systems. OEMs can easily use these modules as building blocks to build complete battery systems for different applications. Electrovaya new product offerings is differentiated from competitors, through the use of Litacells, enabling higher cycle-life and higher safety, two critical factors for OEMs in Lithium Ion batteries.
The new modules promise extraordinary cycle and calendar life, unique safety properties due to the unparalleled stability of SEPARIONTM, the flexible ceramic separator membrane, and highest quality standards. The integrated Litacells contains optimized NMC/graphite based electrode chemistry.
"The 1kWh LITACORE1000 and 2.3 kWh EV4823 intelligent modules are now available to OEMs in Europe, North America and elsewhere, where the market demands highest safety and lowest holistic Lithium ion costs," says Dr. Rajshekar Das Gupta, Vice President Business Development, Electrovaya. "These products enable OEMs to seamlessly use them as building blocks for lithium ion battery systems for diverse Electric Vehicle and Energy Storage markets and usage will rapidly grow later this year, as these products are qualified by increasing numbers of OEMs," says Dr. Das Gupta.
