Industrial Transportation

Discover the future of industrial transportation & mobility

Dukosi chip-on-cell technology with C-SynQ® can deliver the performance and reliability gains needed for the next generation of batteries that will power industrial transportation and mobility applications such as forklifts, off-road, agricultural, mining, marine, military vehicles, and industrial robotics.

Extract more usable energy per pack

With each Dukosi Cell Monitor providing highly accurate, detailed granular information of each cell’s behavior and lifetime status, it provides better insight into a battery pack’s long-term use. This gives industrial vehicle and robotics manufacturers more confidence to unlock greater utilization from each cell while still achieving the same reliability and warranty standards.

Reduce weight, improve reliability

Weight reductions and reliability improvements are also achieved beyond the cell by eliminating the complex wiring harness, supplementary PCBs, connectors, module assemblies, and other associated components, creating a simpler, streamlined battery design.

Flexible and scalable architecture

Dukosi chip-on-cell technology with C-SynQ allows industrial vehicle and robotics OEMs to scale easily and to address different vehicle markets with varying battery capacities and chemistries, without making major BMS design changes. Simply add as many cells as needed to the pack and connect using C-SynQ communication system.

Accelerate time-to-market

This scalable solution enables new architectures like cell-to-pack, and provides essential flexibility to accommodate sudden market changes, allowing it to easily adapt to changes in vehicle configurations, thus accelerating time to market.

Enhance battery safety

The Dukosi chip-on-cell technology with C-SynQ allows every cell in the battery pack to be monitored 24/7, even when the main BMS controller is in a low-power state. This provides immediate detection of cell-level problems, and earlier fault diagnosis, creating a safer, more reliable electric vehicle. If necessary, the Dukosi solution can wake the host controller at any time, even if the vehicle is unattended during shipping or when parked in a garage, for example.

24/7 measuring of every cell’s temperature enables safer batteries, as any cell experiencing an elevated temperature can be identified immediately. This detection is at least 5 minutes earlier than battery packs without cell-level temperature measurement, which can be crucial to give more time for people to act in response to such events.

Promoting a circular economy and sustainable battery chain

By capturing and storing lifetime data on each cell, the Dukosi chip-on-cell technology with C-SynQ promotes a circular economy (reduce, reuse, recycle) throughout the battery value chain. When the Dukosi Cell Monitor is implemented at an early stage in cell manufacturing, the solution offers lifetime traceability and helps OEMs to show compliance with the latest regulations. In addition, the lifetime usage data, including any extreme excursion events, are stored, yielding further advantages such as better cell grading, residual value assessment, and safer and more cost-effective second life usage or recycling.

Reduce costs, optimize and automate manufacturing

Dukosi chip-on-cell technology with C-SynQ requires fewer components per battery pack, which in turn simplifies the manufacturing process and supply chain, reducing materials costs, and it can potentially enable a fully automated assembly line by eliminating time-consuming manual assembly line steps when installing wires, connectors, and pins.
