Flux Power® Holdings, Inc., a fully reporting company and an innovator in durable, scalable, and affordable advanced energy storage systems, today announced that it has enhanced its product portfolio with the addition of a 24V, portable lithium storage solution.
The modular packaging, real time monitoring, and rapid recharging capability make it an ideal solution for environments that require mobile or versatile energy solutions, but demand larger capacity output. These new mobile lithium storage units can be used in solar, wind, telecom and peak-shaving applications, though initial applications will be as mobile gas or diesel generator replacements. Flux Power is currently working with another solutions provider to deliver an innovative alternative to gas and diesel generators used in power applications for lighting and staging equipment.
"We are really excited about the potential applications for our new 24V lithium storage solution," said Chris Anthony , CEO of Flux Power. "On site gas and diesel generators make a tremendous amount of noise and pollution. They also offer limited peak power for initial start up in these settings. Our new mobile lithium storage solutions are ideal for meeting on-location lighting and staging power equipment needs and could displace most if not all of gas and diesel generators used in this industry. The 24V product weighs a mere 60lbs and can be recharged in less than an hour."
"Mobile, alternative power solutions are an ideal fit for the needs of the entertainment industry. Finding a solution to replace a standard generator is long overdue. Our cost efficient, modular power boxes can meet the needs of a full day's production and then can be recharged easily and quickly for use the next day. We are excited about getting this immediately into the market," added Anthony.
The new product contains modular 24V/100Ah lithium batteries, each with a total energy output of 2.56kWh lithium iron phosphate (LiFePO4). Three separate 24V/100Ah battery modules feed an inverter to provide AC power at 110v or 220v. While one battery module is powering the inverter the other two modules are on standby or charging until needed. Each 24V module has its own Battery Management System (BMS) which manages, records and maintains the system's performance over time. Real-time data on the health of the cells are reported over a Controller Area Network (CAN) and can be relayed over telematics for remote diagnostics. Each 24V module also includes a Battery Control Module (BCM) which provides state of charge information as well as controlling dynamic charge algorithms to maximize system performance and minimize charge times.
