CCPS was the first to use infrared technology for electrolyte level monitoring. This method has since become the industry standard for the automatic detection of electrolyte loss.
The CCPS electrolyte level monitoring (ELM) system uses infra-red technology to continuously monitor the level of the electrolyte on every cell 24/7, alarming when the level falls below the set point.
The sensor is attached to a cell and continuously measures the case temperature of the cell below the electrolyte level. The sensor will alarm at a selectable temperature, thereby providing thermal runaway protection.
