By Battery Power Staff

October 2, 2020 | Inventus Power announced a platform of high-performance, Li-ion batteries for emerging motive and stationary applications at the end of August. The PROformance series includes two product families; U1LiFePRO batteries which are scalable from 12V to 48V and up to 5kWh and PROTRXion batteries which are scalable from 24V to 48V and up to 35kWh. All models have been globally certified to UL, IEC and UN38.3.

“Over the past few years, there has been a shift within the rechargeable battery landscape and new markets are creating an increased demand for Li-ion solutions,” said Tom Nguyen, VP of Business Development, in a press release. “With our PROformance series platform, we are helping customers replace their Lead Acid battery systems with a safe, high-performing, fast charging, and maintenance-free solution. These batteries also enable full power system conversion for OEMs who are looking to electrify their equipment completely from internal combustion engine to battery-power.”

Inventus Power’s PROformance series batteries are ideal for heavy-duty applications such professional cleaning, aerial work platform, light electric vehicle, robotics and more, the company says. Each module features an Integrated Battery Management System (BMS) designed with enhanced safety and communication options and is scalable for series and/or parallel connections for increased power and performance.

The PROformance BMS includes built-in diagnostics that enable monitoring of State-of-Charge (SOC), State-of-Health (SOH) as well as critical faults through an LED indicator. No additional hardware or master BMS is needed for diagnostics and any upgrades can be made remotely over CAN through software updates. Additional features of the battery series include short circuit and reverse polarity protection, advanced cell and pack module balancing, ingress protection (IP56/IP65), and compatibility with most off-the shelf chargers.
