LITHIUM IRON PHOSPHATE BATTERY INFORMATION
No Wiring Required When Installing Your Eos!
What are Lithium Iron Phosphate Batteries(LiFePO4)?:
Lithium Iron Phosphate batteries use a new type of cathode material that provides several advantages over traditional Li-ion batteries. LiFePO4 batteries provide much higher specific capacity, superior thermal and chemical stability, enhanced safety, improved cost performance, enhanced charge and discharge rates, compact size, light weight, and enhanced cycle life.
What are the advantages of Lithium Iron batteries compared to Lithium-Ion?:
- Higher Cycle Life
- Better High-Temp Performance
- Faster Charging
- Lower Self Discharge
Eos awning batteries have a built in PCM – what is a PCM and what does it do?
The Protection Circuit Module (PCM) regulates the output of current from the battery to the awning motor and electrical controls to maintain safe battery operation.
- Balancing function for cells
- Over-current protection
- Over-voltage protection
- Over-discharge protection (also known as under-voltage)
- Temperature protection
- Short-circuit protection
