Honeywell has recently unveiled its lithium-ion (li-ion) battery safety sensors, designed to detect potential battery fires in electric vehicles (EVs). These sensors are a crucial component in ensuring the safety of EV passengers and meeting international battery fire safety standards.
By integrating Honeywell’s battery safety sensors into EV and scooter battery packs, thermal runaway risks can be detected early on. This allows for the initiation of warnings to passengers and enables manufacturers to address potential safety concerns. These sensors have been developed in collaboration with Nexceris, the developer of Li-ion Tamer lithium-ion gas detection solutions.
Through this partnership, Honeywell aims to detect earlier thermal runaway indicators in EV and scooter batteries, mitigating the risk of property damage and injury to drivers. This early intervention can prove to be crucial in preventing incidents caused by battery fires.
“With the increasing popularity of EVs and over 10 million units sold globally last year, it is clear that they play a pivotal role in shaping the future of sustainable travel,” said Sarah Martin, President of Honeywell Sensing & Safety Technologies. She emphasized the importance of not compromising safety while striving towards sustainability goals.
In addition to the battery safety sensors, Honeywell also offers a suite of personal protective equipment (PPE) and gas detection solutions to safeguard workers in EV plants. These comprehensive solutions ensure the safer production and operation of EVs, driving the advancement of the transportation industry.
Honeywell’s commitment to developing sustainable solutions for diverse industries is evident in its efforts to enhance the safety of EVs. With the rising demand for electric vehicles, it is crucial to prioritize safety measures to foster the growth of sustainable transportation.
