The PPMHT200-1.0DK is a cell balancing and protection module manufactured by Leclanche that provides comprehensive management of lithium-ion battery packs. It is designed to be used in applications such as hybrid/electric vehicles, consumer electronics, and stationary energy storage. The module uses an integrated single-chip microcontroller to monitor the pack’s cell voltages and temperatures, communicate with the system host, enter/exit the forced equalize mode, and provide over-temperature and over-current protection. The module also provides open-wire and current sense protection, as well as thermal monitoring and plateau control. The PPMHT200-1.0DK can be configured to balance and protect 2 up to 72 single-cell packs.
