Boston-Power has announced its new Ensemble Module System, a kit of standard components designed to provide a simple, cost-effective way to assemble large-format battery pack solutions for EV and stationary storage applications. Available in 155 Wh and 116 Wh increments, module designs can be created to meet a wide variety of voltage and capacity requirements.
“The Ensemble Module System offers a game-changing approach to building large battery packs for our customers," said Darren Bischoff, Director of Business Development and Marketing for Boston-Power. "First, the flexibility of the Ensemble system allows customers to design, build and test a prototype pack in a fraction of the time it would typically take for a fully custom solution. Next, the production-quality components used in the initial prototypes greatly reduce the pack qualification effort needed to launch into mass production. Finally, the same highly reliable standard components used in the prototype and development stages support a cost-effective launch of low-, medium- and high-volume packs without the need for expensive tooling or a complex assembly line.”
The Ensemble solution features a pressure-connect approach to module assembly that eliminates the need for cell welding. The system is designed to let customers realize the ease of assembly of large-format modules while retaining the advantages of packing density, reliability and thermal performance of Boston-Power's small form-factor battery cells.
