AEG Power Solutions, a provider of power electronics systems and solutions for industrial power supplies and renewable energy, has launched a wireless battery cell control system, MoniStore.

The company says the system is for large energy storage applications. AEG adds that a battery sensor is connected to a battery's negative pole and continuously monitors the functionality of the individual battery cells by measuring cell voltage and temperature.

According to AEG, the wireless sensor transmits all relevant parameters via the Zigbee protocol to a receiver module, which then transfers the data to an evaluation unit. The system, the company notes, is designed for use with lead acid or Ni-Cd batteries.
