The Cell Driver™ Advantage

90kW/192kWh Commercial and Industrial Energy Storage

Maximize Safety

Dynamic Micro-Protection Mechanism

The Exro Cell Driver™ utilizes advanced protection functions for current, temperature, and voltage, delivering unparalleled safety for ESS operation and minimizing the risk of cell-level thermal runaway. This enables the system to electronically isolate defective cells without impacting system operation.

Active cell balancing across the system enables the control of charged and discharged energy based on the cell’s State-of-Charge (SoC) and State-of-Health (SoH) while matching power demand and power quality. This leads to improved safety, performance,  and overall system capacity.

Maximize Capacity

Next-Generation Active Cell Balancing

The Exro Cell Driver™ introduces an innovative topology for active cell balancing, expertly driving each cell with AC and dynamically adjusting the amperage per second based on the cell's state of charge (SoC) and state of health (SoH). The result is consistently balanced cells and superior matching of power demand and power quality.

During repeated charging and discharging, battery cells can display varying characteristics, leading to overcharging or undercharging of some cells. This affects overall capacity, efficiency, and may cause damage or thermal runaway events. The Exro Cell Driver™ offers a dynamic solution by charging cells based on their health, enhancing the capacity, efficiency, and safety of energy storage systems.

First and Second-Life Battery Technology

The enhanced control allows the system to increase the lifespan of first-life batteries as well as repurpose second-life EV batteries, prolonging the useful life of rare earth minerals and reducing the environmental impact of electrification.

Unlock the untapped potential of second-life EV batteries by integrating them into Energy Storage Systems (ESS). This innovative repurposing not only dramatically reduces environmental impact by extending battery life cycles but also substantially cuts ESS costs.
