Battery analytics for manufacturers
Diagnose can be utilised in any li-ion application
BATTERY ANALYTICS FOR BATTERY MANUFACTURERS
DIAGNOSE is designed to help battery manufacturers build better quality batteries for their customers in different industries and maximizing the end-customer satisfaction. Our remote monitoring and diagnostics solution, provides real-time statistics on your battery health and performance. This helps you to prevent potential safety issues, optimize battery lifetime and to plan maintenance and replacement.
WHY IS BATTERY ANALYTICS FOR BATTERY MANUFACTURERS and integrators SO IMPORTANT?
UNDERSTAND HOW BATTERIES ARE USED AND OPERATING IN THE FIELD
Regardless of being cell supplier or battery integrator, it is essential to understand how batteries are operating in the field, how they are used by customers, if they need maintenance and are they fulfilling expectations. This increased visibility will essentially help the company to become more customer centric and data driven. In addition, the data collected can be used to enable new and innovative business models like “battery-as-a-service” and recycling.
Safety issues like battery fires may be caused by multiple different reasons, but regardless the root cause, the earlier the problem is detected the lower the probability for hazardous outcome. Identifying risk increasing/indicating symptoms over time from the battery data, helps to detect the problems before they turn to serious ones that cause not only direct costs, but also indirect costs through lost business opportunities and negative impact to reputation.
Even with the most meticulous testing, real world usage patterns always produce surprises from the battery performance and degradation point of view. Capturing this knowledge and turning that into insight that is used to improve next generation products is not possible without sufficient usage data from the field. When applied correctly, this insight leads to higher quality products with a shorter time to market.
WHAT MAKES DIAGNOSE THE BEST SOLUTION?
VISIBILITY IN BATTERY FIELD DATA
DIAGNOSE provides detailed information about the status, usage patterns and health degradation prediction of the entire battery population. When batteries approach the end of their life, DIAGNOSE can be utilized as a platform to manage battery replacement or to reuse batteries in other 2nd life applications, thus increasing the sustainability of the whole value chain. With detailed information about the battery usage and degradation, “battery-as-a-service” type business models considering the battery degradation can also be enabled.
DIAGNOSE monitors that batteries operate under safe conditions and alerts if those are exceeded. It also has a built-in automated detection of any abnormal situations that can be used to enable predictive maintenance and avoid unnecessary system downtime. In addition, DIAGNOSE has a patented method to detect emerging short circuits in advance to avoid hazardous thermal runaways.
PROVIDES INFORMATION FOR R&D
The collected battery usage data and the analyses provided by DIAGNOSE can be utilized as an input for the product development of new batteries. With flexible APIs you can easily integrate DIAGNOSE provided data to your existing PLM (product life cycle management) and other R&D solutions. DIAGNOSE is suitable for different stakeholders in the battery value chain from cell producers, battery-pack providers, vehicle OEMs and all the way to maintenance companies and fleet owners.
