ENNOVI unveils new battery technology

1 min read

ENNOVI, a mobility electrification solutions partner, has announced the launch of the ENNOVI-CellConnect-Prism, a prismatic battery cell contacting system that’s designed to enhance the connectivity and efficiency of battery modules.

The CellConnect-Prism looks to provide engineers with a much greater degree of flexibility, enabling the integration of individual prismatic cells to create larger battery modules or advanced cell-to-pack (CTP) and cell-to-chassis (CTC) configurations.

According to the company, by streamlining the assembly process and eliminating inefficiencies, the ENNOVI-CellConnect-Prism can accelerate battery pack production while optimising material usage and reducing costs.

Commenting Randy Tan, Product Portfolio Director for Battery Platform Development Solutions, said, “Traditionally, prismatic cell contacting systems have relied on current collector assembly (CCA) technologies, which often suffer from inherent inefficiencies. These systems entail complex processes, including laminating and assembling carriers with low-voltage data collection circuits, current collectors, and terminal busbars. However, ENNOVI-CellConnect-Prism has looked to revolutionise this approach by introducing innovative features that enhance performance and sustainability.”

One of these key innovations is the adoption of a die-cut circuit (FDC) as an alternative to the conventional flexible printed circuit (FPC). This reel-to-reel process reduces production time and costs while minimising environmental impact.

Additionally, the use of automotive-grade PET material and hot-bar soldering ensures optimal thermal resistance and component attachment without compromising integrity.

Furthermore, ENNOVI-CellConnect-Prism eliminates the need for traditional insulation methods by integrating voltage and temperature sensing directly into the assembly. This approach optimises material usage and production efficiency while maintaining the highest standards of reliability and safety.

Patent-pending the ENNOVI-CellConnect system represents a major shift in battery interconnect technology, making it possible to scale production and meet the growing demand for electrified mobility solutions.

Compatible with prismatic, cylindrical, and pouch cell formats, this platform offers customisation options for diverse applications.
