Two point temperature sensing kit for Energus BMS
The temperature sensor is used to monitor battery temperature. Temperature is important, because charging (of most lithium-based cells) is not permitted below freezing temperature and usually above 45°C. Various temperature levels can be set in software. Both temperatures will be used to find a maximum and minimum values to form decisions. If possible, one sensor should be installed in the middle of battery pack, and one near an outside corner.
If this temperature sensor is not used, the BMS onboard sensor is being used instead. In such case the BMS should maintain good thermal contact with battery, also the temperature may rise during high current charge or discharge, or during cell balancing. Therefore this external temperature sensor is recommended.
