Modular Rack System

To ensure a neat installation, use the modular rack system for the RS batteries. This rack includes the exhaust ducting and liquid cooling manifolds. It is designed with a slide-in mechanism, in such a way that only front access is needed. As a result, the installation is easy and front-side-only. The rack can be configured in different dimensions. It is offered as a kit, which makes it suitable for use in existing spaces in any application. In other words, minimal integration engineering is required.

High Performance battery Exhaust

Exhaust System

A patented pressure relief exhaust connection is fitted in each RS battery. In case of a thermal runaway, the exhaust system automatically channels the released gasses to a safe area.

Propagation System

The battery enclosure includes a PPS connection. In case of a single cell thermal runaway event, this propagation protection system fills the battery with a fluid to remove the heat as quickly as possible. By doing so, this mechanism prevents other cells from overheating. This solution mitigates the risk of large uncontrolled battery fires.

RS_230-Battery Management System

Battery Management System

To ensure a high safety standard, each RS 230 battery module comes with an integrated Battery Management System. This is an intelligent electronic module called a slave BMS. This slave BMS measures all cell voltages and temperatures inside the battery module. It controls balancing on both cell and module level, which is unique in the market. The slave BMS in each battery module communicates with an MG Master BMS. Via a galvanic isolated CAN-Bus the MG Master collects and monitors the status of all battery modules. If the measured values from a battery module exceed the limit, the MG Master will automatically take action to protect all of the connected battery modules.

 

Redundant System

System flexibility is one of the key features of all MG products. Combine the RS High Performance Batteries together with one or more MG Masters and create a powerful system for a complete range of applications. The RS battery modules can be connected in series and in parallel to meet the required system voltage and capacity. The possible voltage range for a single string is 51 Vdc up to 900 Vdc. Connect multiple strings in parallel to increase the capacity of your battery bank.

In order to create a redundant system, connect two or more MG Masters in parallel and use the SmartLink MX. The MG SmartLink MX and PLC provide the necessary controls to start, stop and reset the battery system. It also makes combined battery data available in such a way that parallel connected systems are shown as one battery bank.

Thermal Management

Thermal management guarantees the high performance of the RS Series. The RS 230 battery module is equipped with a unique fluid based thermal management system. The integrated liquid cooling actively cools or heats all battery cells. This ensures that the battery cells are kept within a predefined temperature window.

The thermal management system maintains an equal temperature across the entire system. Managing the temperature results in an improved cycle life and overall performance. Compared to air cooled modules, the liquid cooling controls the temperature of the battery cells. The active cooling ensures the battery module is quickly ready for the next charge or discharge cycle.

▶ Consistent Battery Temperature
▶ Liquid Heating and Cooling

▶ Extended Cycle Life
▶ High Peak Charge and Discharge Currents
