Discover Battery, a SOLV4EX company headquartered in Richmond, British Columbia, today introduced LYNK II and LYNK LITE Communication Gateways to enable closed-loop integration with its AES LiFePO4, HELIOS ESS and LITHIUM PROFESSIONAL batteries.
According to a press release, LYNK Gateway devices facilitate closed-loop communication for Discover Lithium batteries with power conversion equipment to deliver ultra-fast charging performance, battery system balancing, improved life, and functionally safe system integrations.
The LYNK II Communication Gateway aggregates and displays the real-time State-of-Charge for Discover AES LiFePO4 Solar and HELIOS ESS batteries. LYNK II unlocks the full potential of Discover Lithium batteries for solar applications by enabling them to optimize the charging configurations of Schneider Electric, Sol-Ark, Victron, Outback, Studer, and SMA off-grid inverter-chargers, facilitating up to a 40% improvement in their 0% to 100% SoC recharging times.
Additionally, with three built-in programable relays, LYNK II can trigger vital systems on-off such as generators, air conditioners, or heating mats, based on real-time battery information.
The LYNK LITE Communications Gateway aggregates and transmits real-time battery information for Discover LITHIUM PROFESSIONAL and AES LiFePO4 batteries for motive and mobile applications. LYNK LITE engages the full potential of these Lithium batteries by integrating them with mobile inverter-chargers, on and off-board industrial chargers, load centers, motor controls, and telematics using CANopen, Serial CAN, and RV-C communication to optimize system performance.
“Our LYNK devices represent years of research and customer feedback,” said Brendon Sauer, director of product and engineering at Discover Battery. “These all-new devices unlock the full potential of our Lithium batteries and provide new features for installers, system integrators, and service personnel to manage, upgrade and monitor the performance of Discover Lithium batteries.”
Discover also introduces LYNK ACCESS, a 64-bit Windows-based software package that allows installers to configure LYNK Gateway devices to use CAN-based communication protocols and battery owners to monitor state-of-charge and other vital parameters. LYNK ACCESS also enables development engineers to simulate Discover Lithium batteries, reducing the time and effort required to integrate and test with other systems. LYNK ACCESS and LYNK Gateway devices provide service personnel access to Discover Lithium battery data logs to troubleshoot and diagnose battery health. LYNK ACCESS is a free download from the Discover website.
