Electrovaya, a lithium-ion battery technology and manufacturing company, has announced the launch of its Infinity-HV battery systems, an addition to its existing Infinity product line. The Infinity-HV systems target heavy-duty, high-voltage applications including buses, delivery trucks, construction trucks, hybrid-fuel cell or battery systems and stationary energy storage systems.
The new Infinity-HV systems come in two forms: HV-90 and HV-180. They offer a nominal energy of 35 kWh and 70 kWh, respectively, and will serve both 400V and 800V applications. The systems are modular and designed to be scaled for the respective requirements. The Infinity-HV batteries use lithium-ion ceramic and UL-recognized EV series cells and have a projected 25-year lifetime for one-cycle or day applications.
The Infinity-HV packs offer a high level of fire protection due to the company’s proprietary multi-level cell and battery fire propagation prevention technology. Infinity-HV systems will be controlled by the company’s in-house fifth generation advanced battery management system (BMS) that is currently deployed in more than 4,000 Infinity products in the field.
The Infinity-HV packs will be assembled in house at both Electrovaya’s Canadian and U.S. operations. Electrovaya has recently installed an AI-assisted automated assembly line with advanced laser welding capabilities and cutting-edge quality control methods, which will help to accelerate product customizations to meet specific customer requirements. Mass production of the Infinity-HV products is planned at the company’s facility in Jamestown, NY.
“We are excited to launch the Infinity-HV battery products and look forward to exploring the market opportunities. The Infinity-HV batteries offer unique performance characteristics, particularly with regards to safety and cycle life, and are the ideal energy storage technology for heavy duty applications,” said Dr. Khadija Yazda, high voltage systems product manager at Electrovaya.
