TTI offers Amphenol’s sensors for EV/HEV applications
Amphenol’s Advanced Sensors provide accurate battery temperature sensing for enhanced battery performance. The sensors are suitable for electric vehicles (EVs) and hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs) and industrial, portable power applications. Amphenol’s Advanced Sensors are now available in Europe through specialist distributor of electronic components, TTI.
The range of battery temperature sensing products from Amphenol offers reliable and accurate temperature measurement, an issue that is critical to long-term battery performance, says TTI. Products include negative temperature co-efficient (NTC) thermistors that combine high accuracy and temperature stability to set the industry performance standard.
The accuracy, reliability and flexibility of the Amphenol Advanced Sensors range means it is used for a wide range of applications. It can be used to measure the surface temperature in battery cells, cases and packs, particularly where space is limited. Thin-film, flexible versions that conform to differing geometric shapes and sealed versions for insertion directly into coolants are also available.
The Amphenol range of automotive temperature sensors has a proven quality record for both engine management and battery temperature monitoring. Products for heating and ventilation systems for both automotive and heavy-duty truck applications are also available. The Advanced Sensors range is also used in marine and bike applications. For industrial applications, Amphenol offers a comprehensive ranges of products, which includes high temperature thermistors, gauge drivers, sensors and elements. These provide reliable temperature sensing for many segments of the industrial market including the medical and telecommunication industries, says TTI.
Customised versions can be designed to meet an applications requirements, and a version is also available that forms a remote data bridge for communication from battery management systems to Cloud- based control systems.
