HMS presents communication solutions for battery energy storage systems

HMS Networks is now presenting several communication solutions for the rapidly expanding battery market. Battery energy storage systems (BESS) require communication capabilities to connect to batteries and peripheral components, communicate with the power grid, monitor systems remotely and much more.

Battery energy storage system may be one of the keys to solve the energy crisis and make the world more sustainable. Since green energy sources such as wind and solar are not always available, large battery parks can make it possible to store the energy to use when there is less sun or wind.

Battery energy storage systems are made up of battery cells which are combined into battery packs which can then be combined into containers which in turn can make up battery parks the size of several football fields. The systems can use new or recycled batteries and combine many different components. However, these large battery parks need a lot of communication capabilities in order to work. HMS now presents a comprehensive package of communication solutions catered for this application area.

Since the battery market has been spearheaded by the car industry, CAN is the communication standard of choice in many systems. Here, HMS offers an extensive portfolio of communication solutions via the Ixxat brand – for PC connection, networking, line extension, galvanic isolation and more.

“We see a rapidly growing demand for communication solutions in battery energy storage system as society as a whole is turning to more sustainable energy sources such as wind and solar,” says Alexander Hess, general manager at Ixxat business unit of HMS. “Communication is needed to get battery energy storage systems to work and HMS offers an extensive portfolio of industrial communication solutions to solve the communication issues at hand in these systems.”
