Electrical energy storage systems can be used to compensate for fluctuations in renewable energy, provide localized backup in the event of power failure, address peak loads, and many other use cases.
Electrical energy storage systems consist of power control units that monitor and manage multiple battery modules. A separate system monitor ensures safe and efficient operation based on internal conditions and external influencing factors. In addition, the system control coordinates all the processes within the system and provides external communication. These systems ensure the safe and reliable operation of the energy storage system, and they all depend on safe and reliable interconnect solutions.
Phoenix Contact offers a wide range of industrial-grade connectors and cables for energy storage systems.
Phoenix Contact BPC series battery-pole connectors allow flexible and reliable front cabling of battery modules for up to 350 amps and 1,500 volts. These connectors feature a 360 degree rotatable design for flexible routing and mechanical coding that prevents polarity reversal. The connectors are also touch-proof, even when not plugged in.
Phoenix Contact BBC series busbar connection systems are ideal for slide-in systems, supporting blind-mating in a touch-proof design that is scalable up to 200 amps at 1,500 volts.
Phoenix Contact also offers a broad portfolio of connectors for data and signal interfaces in the power control and system monitor. These include FINEPITCH board-to-board connectors, easy-to-use terminal blocks, and wire-to-board connectors. These are complemented by feed-through connectors and M-style circular connectors for panel mounted signal and data connections. Robust RJ-45 jacks and compact SPE connectors provide high-speed connectivity and networking.
Phoenix Contact DIN rail products are ideal for the system control unit. These provide easy-to-use interfaces for every application, including high speed data and fiber optic modules as well as high-current panel-feed throughs and more.
