Overview of SIM100 Isolation Monitor

The Sendyne SIM100MOD is a high voltage isolation monitoring device for electrical systems.  The isolation monitor operates correctly even when the battery is active, and experience large variations.

The Advantage of Active and Standby High Voltage System Monitoring

The SIM100MOD continuously monitors the isolation resistance between vehicles IT (Isolated Terra) power system and chassis for deterioration of insulation and potentially dangerous levels of leakage current.

The module detects all sources of leakage, including multiple, simultaneous symmetrical and asymmetrical faults, as well as resistive paths between the chassis and points in the battery with the same potential as the chassis. The measured data is filtered by an advanced algorithm, resulting in a high level of noise rejection.  The module estimates new values for the isolation resistance twice per second.  In the case of insulation fault, the unit identifies the relative position of the fault in relation to the battery terminals (positive, negative or anyplace in between). In addition, it measures and reports the value of capacitance from each battery terminal to chassis.

About Sendyne's Technology:

How we efficiently consume, conserve and securely generate the energy we need is one of the key challenges of the 21st century.  One technology that has the potential to help meet this challenge is energy storage.  Energy storage can aid in optimization of the electric grid, enable effective integration of alternative, intermittent generation, such as wind and solar, and can empower a new generation of electric vehicles.

Large-scale storage systems are extremely complex.  Proper system management is critical; it must be able to effectively monitor, predict and control all aspects of battery system performance, including capacity, cycle life and safety.  Failure to provide such management results in underutilized (and overpriced) battery packs that require extra capacity to hedge against the unknown.  

Effective battery system management cannot be accomplished using existing technologies nor by employing traditional methods used for notebook or other smaller batteries.  Further, a multidisciplinary approach is needed, one which combines knowledge of electrochemistry, power systems, modeling, and Digitally Assisted Analog (DAA).

Sendyne® was formed in 2010 to address the challenges of battery system management through the development of breakthrough technologies.  We’ve formed a multidisciplinary team which has developed a strong intellectual property portfolio.  These technologies are focused on crucial aspects of battery system management, including accurate sensing, power delivery system design, robust, predictive modeling and more.
