New device dynamically reduces offset error in DC current measurement

New York-based battery management specialist Sendyne has obtained a patent for an invention that dynamically reduces offset error in shunt-based DC current measurement systems. Offset error – an erroneous value read by the measurement system when the actual current is zero – has a significant impact when Coulomb counting information is utilized for State-of-Charge (SOC)… Read more »

Sendyne’s new SFP101 precisely measures current using shunt of any material

A battery management system requires precise current measurements in order to derive State of Charge (SOC) and other important battery state information. To date, commercial shunt measurement systems are limited in their accuracy by two main factors. First, accuracy is affected by changes in temperature caused either by the environment or by the self-heating of… Read more »
