Electric vehicles (EVs) have evolved the traditional systems and components requirements for the operation of internal combustion engines. Not surprisingly, this same shift of streamlined efficiency is already occurring within EVs themselves, particularly in the realm of electrical connectivity.
A recognized world leader in Battery Performance Solutions, Gentherm has engineered and developed innovative solutions that provide a solution for OEMs to eliminate hundreds of wires and connections from previous architectures, thereby enhancing the range, performance, safety and reliability of EVs.
New Battery Management system technologies also collect cell data that is used to monitor in-cell temperatures, identify when preventive maintenance is required, accurately determine the state of charge, and detect performance-critical conditions before significant damage can occur.
“The elimination of 100 wires from every EV shows the magnitude of potential improvements available when evaluating technologies for future vehicle efficiency.” – Ferdinand Minnerrath
