Valence Technology’s large-scale battery technology incorporates built-in power management, potentially advancing EV applications by monitoring and adjusting battery-pack performance. Called “Epoch”, the phosphate-based Li-ion battery technology further lends itself to EV applications through low cost and low maintenance.
The Epoch brand of customizable battery packs will be available in 12.8-V and 19.2-V modules, and will allow users scalability up to 390 kWh. Additional Epoch battery-system benefits include a fail-soft capability that will eliminate system failure, as well as the ability to withstand more than 2000 charge cycles. Epoch-branded battery products will also provide users an environmentally friendly alternative to lead-acid batteries.
