The PowerRack® range ensures compatibility with direct communication via the Xcom-CAN system for full battery control by the inverter.
The PowerBrick® range is compatible without the need for communication with the inverter. PowerBrick are then installed in the same way as AGM lead-acid batteries or other batteries. This installation method is faster and does not require additional cables or systems to operate.
We are delighted to work with Studer Innotec, a company that has been producing high quality energy converters for many years. Unlike other manufacturers, Studer Innotec controls the entire design of its products, which is a guarantee of reliability and an assurance of product durability.
This 100% electric boat (propulsion, on-board equipment, kitchens, etc.) is powered entirely by our Lithium Iron Phosphate batteries, representing a stored energy of 720 kWh divided into two totally independent PowerRack banks.
The PowerRack battery system, certified by Bureau Veritas in early 2018, consists of 24 cabinets of 30kWh in 700V DC, connected in parallel. These batteries represent a weight of about 9 tons on board. This cabinet system limits floor space and allows energy to be stacked over the entire height of the hull, making the installation compact and integrated into the boat.
EclairSea promotes econavigation by proposing the electrical conversion of boats. With a first successful experience on vessel “les 2 brigands” for the association “Marché sur l’eau”. The comfort and technical advantages of an electric motor are far from negligible: silent and no vibrationnavigation, with almost no maintenance, space saving and better weight distribution on the boats.
PowerTech Systems contributes to this success by integrating several PowerBrick+ 250Ah 12V batteries into the system. They are more ecological, more compact, and totally secure. The presence of an integrated BMS ensures optimum safety and prevents any risk of explosion and self-ignition thanks to their Lithium Iron Phosphate technology, LiFePO4.
On an all-electric boat, energy is precious.
PowerBrick+ Lithium Iron Phosphate Batteries for considerable benefits
Lithium iron phosphate batteries provide a better power-to-weight ratio than lead batteries. They are on average 2 to 3 times lighter than traditional lead-acid batteries.
Thanks to the compactness of Lithium Iron Phosphate technology, it can be accommodated in a considerable number of locations. In addition, it can be positioned in any direction. But above all, it increases the storage capacity (Ah) for the same volume.
Very high lifespan
Lithium iron phosphate 12V batteries have a large number of charging cycles (up to 5000). This allows them to last more than 10 years.
Equipped with a management system called Battery Management System (BMS), the cells of the lithium ion battery are automatically balanced during charging. The BMS stops the battery operation in case of:
o Overcurrent o Over-voltage (during loading) o Undervoltage (during discharge) o Overheating
