What Is BMS, and How Does It Communicate with Solar Inverters?

A BMS, or a Battery Management System, is a type of technology that oversees the performance of your lithium-ion battery. The BMS helps avoid the overcharge of a battery module by discharge control; overcharging may lead to failure for the module cells. Similarly, the BMS will also protect the module cells from damage against undervoltage and high temperatures of short circuits.

In case the BMS detects any unsafe operating conditions or even malfunctions of the BMS itself, it may shut down the battery to protect its cells. This is why you should always get batteries that have appropriately sized BMS incorporated within them. Currently, SAKO offers a diverse range of BMS lithium battery solutions, all of which carry smart BMS systems of up to 150A. These are also compatible with solar inverter systems.



How Does BMS Communicate with Solar Inverters?

Lithium-ion batteries are the most reliable type of batteries used with solar inverters. They have quick charging speeds and can store DC (direct current) from inverters, so they can be used during rainy seasons or when weather conditions are unfeasible. To make lithium-ion batteries function more reliably and without error, BMS systems are introduced.

But how can the BMS system communicate with solar inverters? This is made possible with the solar inverter protocol built inside, as seen with SAKO battery. The solar inverter also comes with lithium-ion battery protocols, so the solar inverter and lithium-ion battery may communicate with one another. This connection facilitates communication with the BMS system. SAKO inverters are also pre-built with innovative BMS systems and lithium battery protocols.



Benefits of Using SAKO’s 48V Lithium-ion Battery

SAKO lithium-ion batteries offer many competitive features that make them stand apart; For example, SAKO 48V lithium-ion battery is notable in particular. Here are the many benefits it has to offer:


  • Long Cycle Life

Generally, the longer the life cycle, the better. The minimum lifespan you can expect from lithium-ion batteries falls to roughly 2,000 charging cycles. SAKO’s lithium-ion batteries, however, offer over 3000 charging cycles, meaning they can last you well over 5 years with good care.


  • High-density, Portable, and Light

The 48V lithium-ion battery is incredibly lightweight (just around 44 kg) and small in size, making it easily portable. This also makes it an excellent solution for portable solar inverters.



  • Good Performance at a Wide Temperature Range

The SAKO lithium battery offers excellent performance at a wide temperature range, usually from -20°C to 55°C. For better performance, you should still store your lithium-ion battery in a cooler environment.


  • High Safety

To ensure the lithium-ion battery offers reliable performance at all times, it is equipped with several safety features. The smart battery management system (BMS) allows for overcharge protection, over-discharge protection, overcurrent protection, short circuit protection, and overtemperature protection.



  • Robustness and Durability

The SAKO 48V lithium-ion battery is built using state-of-the-art materials and technology that ensure a robust exterior and durable design. This design also makes the SAKO battery incredibly resilient to extreme temperature ranges, including high and low temperatures, and promotes safe operations at all times.


  • Environmentally Friendly

SAKO’s 48-volt lithium-ion battery is manufactured to provide clean and green energy with no toxic or degrading fumes or outputs that may damage the environment. They are a much more environmentally friendly power solution compared to alternative batteries or sources using fossil fuels.


  • Deeper DoD (Depth of Discharge)

The depth of discharge or DoD of a battery is the amount of energy that cycles into and out of the battery during one charging cycle relative to its complete battery capacity. A higher depth of discharge means that you can use your battery for more extended periods before having to recharge again. The SAKO battery offers a higher DoD, ensuring a longer use without frequent recharges that disrupts your work.



SAKO Battery Solutions – Durable and Reliable

SAKO’s lithium-ion batteries are a fantastic solution for inverters and complete solar power systems. They carry several competitive features that make them stand out from other lithium-ion battery manufacturers. SAKO 48-volt lithium-ion battery is one great sample of expert manufacturing and design capabilities and can easily be incorporated into any inverter system.
