High accuracy measurements of voltage (V), capacity (Ah), power (W) and battery energy

CC75, CC150, CC500 Coulomb Counters from MyLithiumBattery.com allow the user to obtain a state of charge in % (SoC – State Of Charge), and a precise depth of discharge (DoD) of the battery. They also calculate, in real time, the time remaining before the battery is completely empty.

The CC 75/150/500 are suitable for batteries with an operating voltage from 8V to 80V DC.
There are 3 versions :

  • CC75 measuring from 0 to 75A, compatible with M6 terminals
  • CC150 measuring from 0 to 150A, compatible with M8 terminals
  • CC500 measuring from 0 to 500A, compatible with M10 terminals

For applications using batteries, the situation is often critical if users are suddenly without energy (for example electric bicycles, security cameras, alarms, IoT, on-board sensors…).
In these cases, the accuracy of a Coulomb Counter for batteries State of Charge measurement is a “must have”.

Rely on CC75, CC150, CC500 coulombs counters

Simply measuring a voltage at the terminals of a battery is not enough to know its precise state of charge (SoC).

With our CC75/150/500, the advantage is real and allows precise counting of coulombs to determine their state of charge, as well as a measurement of the battery voltage and the instantaneous current used. This information is used to monitor the charge status of the system with battery.

Coulomb Counter allows accurate SoC nformation that can be communicated onto a bus network (CAN, TTL232, RS232).

Once the counter is initialized, it counts the coulombs used for a discharge, and those generated by a charger in order to take partial charges into account.

This principle has the advantage of being compatible with all battery technologies (lithium-iron-phosphate (LiFePO4), lithium-ion, Li-Polymer, lead-acid and nickel-metal hybrid batteries…).
