The ADBMS6832 is a powerful multicell battery stack monitor suitable for a variety of battery stack monitoring and management applications. Its superior performance makes it an excellent choice for battery pack monitoring. As a reliable multi-cell battery stack monitor, the ADBMS6832 is capable of simultaneously measuring the status of up to 18 series-connected battery stacks. Its lifetime total measurement error (TME) does not exceed 2 millivolts (mV) over the entire temperature range, so battery monitoring is very accurate.
Because the monitor has a wide measurement input range from -2.5 volts (V) to +5.5 volts (V), it is suitable for most battery chemistries and is also capable of accurately measuring bus voltage. In addition, it also accommodates busbars between channels 9 and 10 without requiring a dedicated measurement channel, simplifying circuit design.
To ensure accurate measurements, the ADBMS6832 uses two separate analog-to-digital converters (ADCs) for redundant measurements. These continuously running ADCs feature sampling rates up to 4.096 megahertz (MHz), reducing the need for external analog filters and enabling alias-free measurement results. With subsequent programmable infinite impulse response (IIR) filters, they can further reduce noise and improve measurement accuracy.
Many ADBMS6832s can be connected in series to simultaneously monitor long high voltage battery strings. Each ADBMS6832 has an isolated serial port interface (isoSPI™) for RF-immune, high-speed, long-distance communication. The devices are connected in a daisy chain through a host processor, ensuring reliable communication. Communication is maintained even when the communication path fails.
The ADBMS6832 can be powered by a battery pack or an isolated power supply, providing more options. It also includes passive balancing with individual pulse width modulation (PWM) duty cycle control, while each cell can also handle up to 300 milliamps (mA) of discharge current. Other features include an onboard 5-volt (V) regulator, 10 general-purpose I/Os, and sleep mode, among others. Current consumption is reduced to 4 microamps (µA) to help save power.
