Electric Surfboard Battery Solution-Performance & Waterproof testing

Electric Surfboard Battery Solution-Performance & Waterproof testing

Energy saving has become an important issue in the global.More and more electric vehicles have been come out.Such as electric vehicles,electric buses,electric skateboards.

In recent years, underwater sports have turned into the popular lifestyle.

Some popular underwater sports products come out such as underwater drones,electric surfboards,jet skis,electric swimming rings,electric remote ,control lifebuoys ect which match with a powerful battery system.Not only the battery should be with strong life cycles but also need one accurate SOC power metering function.

The whole battery should have waterproof IP68 in 50m-100m.In addition,one stable and reliable communication protocol (UART/RS485/Canbus) is required to be connected to the host to ensure personal safety and equipment reliability.

The design idea of our underwater battery is the inheritance of the long term historical experience of the design and production for plenty of industrial which require best battery construction,safety and reliability and extremely waterproof function.

The development and testing process of our surfboard battery pack as below:

BMS design solution:

UART communication

-The intelligent balance process of the cells and the balance voltage can be flexibly adjusted by the upper computer

-TI(Texas Instruments,USA) front-end detection chip

-Temperature protect when the battery pack is charging and discharging

-NTC detects the temperature and the detection value is accurate

-All protect delay are programmable

-Overcharge,over discharge,over current,short circuit,over temperature,low temperature and other protection functions.

-Max continuous discharge current up 100A,instant 170A(10S)

-20A charge current

-High-precision detection of voltage and current

-Abnormal data storage,intelligent voltage alarm,which support after sales service

-Accurately report the current battery information,record the charge and discharge cycle of the battery pack,record the usage situation,and provide the basis for after-sales

-Multiple operating modes for flexible control of quiescent current consumption

The accessory-LED display solution:

电源开关与电量显示复合使用;关机状态下,单次短按1秒显示电量。

The switch is combined with the power display;In the off state,the led display work through pressing for 1 second.

关机状态,长按3秒开机状态,电量显示的LED灯是长亮的。

In the off state,press for 2 seconds to turn on,and the LED indicator stay  work.

开机状态,长按4秒关机

In the on state,press for 4 seconds to turn off.

关机是将BMS供电切断,如果开机后,在没有负载1h后,会自动关机。

Turn off ,The BMS do not supply the power,If it is turned on,it will be automatically shut down after 1h of no load.

通过充放电,同时通过BMS记录SOC数据,最终放电电时可通过放电数据及BMS记录的SOC数据确认BMS SOC计算是否准确。最终有数据报告。

By charging and discharging,the SOC data is recorded by the BMS at the same time,and the final discharge electric power can confirm whether the BMS SOC calculation is accurate by the discharge data and the SOC data

In terms of waterproof battery pack solution,special attention should be paid to the following tips:

  1. Choose the suitable waterproof glue
  2. Professional waterproof design like perfect housing construction,LED display materials
  3. The connector which should be IP68 grade and the connector support A discharge current
  4. BMS design,and choose the competitive cells for the battery pack solution
  5. Control the production with good figure
  6. Use the equipment to test the battery pack
