The 9M BMS Master unit monitors and controls up to fifteen REC Q BMS 16S units for cell strings up to 240 cells.
The Battery management system (BMS) is a device that monitors and controls each cell in the battery pack by measuring
its parameters. The capacity of the battery pack differs from one battery cell to another and this increases with
number of charging/discharging cycles. Due to the different capacity this voltage is not reached at the same time
for all cells in the stack. The lower the capacity the sooner this voltage is reached. When charging series connected
batteries with single charger, the voltage on some cells might be higher than maximum allowed charging voltage
at the end of charging. Overcharging the cell additionally lowers its capacity and number of charging cycles. The
BMS equalizes cells’ voltage by diverting some of the charging current from higher voltage cells – passive balancing.
The device temperature is measured to protect the circuit from over-heating due to the passive balancing. Battery
pack temperature is monitored by Dallas DS18B20 digital temperature sensor/s. Maximum 3 sensors per Slave unit
may be used.
