In a constant effort to increase driving comfort and safety while reducing fuel consumption and engine emissions, the number of electronic and electrically-operated functions in automobiles is continuously rising. This has created a need for smarter solutions to ensure sufficient battery power to supply these loads and start the engine reliably at any time.
Car batteries power many important features designed to:
To balance battery power consumption and charging in an optimum manner, energy management systems rely on battery sensors for the information they need to implement closed-loop control strategies.
The ideal battery sensor should be non-intrusive and automatically adapt to any new battery. In addition to measuring battery current, voltage and temperature, smart battery sensors can calculate and deliver state-of-health, state-of-charge and state-of-function information. In this way, they open the way to extended battery life, reliable cranking power and reduced fuel consumption and CO2 emissions, without increasing the computing load on the energy management ECU.

To optimize energy management and extend battery life, the engine management systems need to know the state of health, charge and function of the battery in addition to the current, voltage and temperature.
All this information should be provided without increasing the calculation load on the energy management system and without intruding on the battery circuit.
In addition, the function should be easy to install on any battery, without requiring dealer servicing.
The sensors that provide this information must offer:
Depending on where they are installed, they must also withstand severe environmental conditions:
