Smart VHT module

Super Long Life Ni-MH battery system

Saft’s smart VHT module offer an ideal solution in extreme temperature environments for reliable, long-life and high-performance applications with cutting-edge Ni-MH technology available in multi-level of capacities.

Smart VHT module integrates smart electronics, all in a robust plug-n-play battery design. It is well suited for small off-grid photovoltaic (PV) applications, back-up power systems and professional electronics requiring unsurpassed long life energy storage.

Features

Basic configuration: 12V, 24V, 36V battery systems including:

  • Advanced Ni-MH chemistry providing very long calendar life, high charge efficiency, and excellent cycling capability in an extreme range of temperatures (- 40°C to + 70°C)
  • Built-in BMS (Battery Management System) managing charge, discharge, SOC (State Of Charge) and SOH (State Of Health) based on proprietary algorithm
  • Communication and remote control possible through the BPCI® (Battery Protection and Communication Interface) RS232 compatible serial bus
  • Eco-designed product and RoHS compliant
  • Designed for ease of parallel assembly
  • Discharge current up to 10A continuous

Benefits

  • Very long service life, even in hot countries and with high daily DOD (Depth Of Discharge)
  • Low total cost of ownership (TCO) especially for applications having high maintenance costs.
  • Innovative design for the customer device (slimmer battery)
  • No sudden end of discharge nor sudden death thanks to the communication interface
  • Reduction of energy consumption thanks to electronic management between the solar panel, the battery and the application
  • Recyclability and respect for the environment

Applications

  • Standalone, small off-grid PV applications like street lighting, road signalling, buoys, water supply and irrigation, weather stations and environmental sensors, wireless local area networks and navigation aids, M2M networks
  • Urban signalling as bus stops, billboards, lighting connected to the off-peak grid
  • Professional applications such as portable measurement equipment, medical carts, cinematography and others
  • Back-up and small stationary systems

Components

  • Connector HIROSE 547-0085-8- MDF6-8DP-3,5DSA
  • Main fuse: 15A ATO
  • ABS plastic

Options available

  • Serial communication kit for PC access (with Saft’s software)
  • Cables and accessories available for system integration

Recommendations

  • Recharge up to 12 months after full charge
  • Storage temperature: + 5 to + 25° C
  • Do not immerse into water
  • Do not expose to water projection
