Honeywell Unveils Innovative Solutions to Address EV Battery Fires
Honeywell on Monday said it has created innovative solutions to address safety concerns across the spectrum of EV manufacturing and use.
The company said its lithium-ion battery safety sensors help play a crucial role in detecting potential battery fires, which can protect drivers.
“With more than 10 million EVs sold around the world last year, we’re seeing how pivotal they are in making the future of sustainable travel a reality,” said Sarah Martin, president of Honeywell Sensing & Safety Technologies.
Honeywell battery safety sensors, when integrated into EV and scooter battery packs, detect thermal runaway risks, enabling warning of passengers and allowing EV and scooter manufacturers to meet international battery fire safety standards.
Through a strategic alliance with Nexceris, developer of lithium-ion gas detection solutions, Honeywell said it is developing sensors to detect earlier thermal runaway indicators in EV and scooter batteries.
This early intervention can help avoid costly property damage or worse, injury to drivers.
The company also offers electrical safety gear, portable and fixed gas detection technologies and PPE such as gloves, face shields and dielectric boots for high-risk areas like electrode mixing, coating, drying and cell finishing.
