Key Features

  • Early warning of lithium-ion battery failures
  • Compatible with all lithium-ion battery form factors and chemistries
  • Reduction/removal of false positive signals 
  • 100 sensors per controller
  • Calibration-free


The Li-ion Tamer GEN 3 detects the venting of battery electrolyte solvent vapours that occurs during the off-gassing phase of lithium-ion battery failure. By detecting potential fires during this stage, the threat can be investigated and the proper mitigation steps can be taken to avoid catastrophic thermal runaway.

The Li-ion Tamer GEN 3 system consists of several components: monitoring sensors, referencing sensors, hubs, power switches, network switches and at least one Li-ion Tamer Controller.

The Li-ion Tamer GEN 3 Controller, a Linux-based industrial computer, aggregates and processes sensor signals, communicates sensor status and records a detailed history of time-stamped data from the sensors for post-event diagnosis.

The controller is suitable for a variety of system sizes with a maximum of 100 sensors. Each controller has two RJ45 ethernet ports, labelled Network 1 and Network 2. Network 1 is for the internal detection network only and is where the hubs or Ethernet switches connect to the controller. Network 2 is for external signal communication and is used to access the Modbus output, connect a relay module or connect the controller to an existing network.
