State of Charge for Discover AES LiFePO4 Battery
LYNK Communication Gateway aggregates and displays in real time the State of Charge for Discover AES LiFePO4 batteries.
Unlock the full potential of a Discover AES LiFePO4 Battery by enabling the internal Battery Management System (BMS) to optimize and dynamically manage the charge and discharge configurations of the world’s best off-grid inverter chargers and solar charge controllers. Turn a good system into a great one with up to 25% improvement in 0% to 100% SoC recharge time.*
Remotely monitor the aggregate SoC for a string of AES LiFePO4 batteries and data log multiple sites using the data monitoring services offered by multiple brands of off-grid inverter systems.
* To the extent that the power electronics are capable of this function.

3.7" x 2.0" x 1.6"
IP20 (indoor use only)
A connection to the AES batteries can be made with the Discover LYNK© monitor and gateway. The LYNK© has a battery state of charge meter on its face for quick reference when used as a lead replacement battery. This will be much more accurate than the battery monitors supplied with most inverters. LYNK© enables closed loop communications providing adaptive, real time interaction between the Discover AES LiFePO4 battery and connected inverter system. Remote reporting of battery status is available through the inverter monitoring and web services.
Edge Cards (daughter boards) can be added to the LYNK© to enable communications to specific inverter brands. A selection of cards will become available to match popular inverter brands. Two Edge Cards can be used at one time for various inverters and charge controllers in one system. .The SMA card is used to interface the AES battery bank with an SMA Sunny Island inverter system. The VICTRON card is used to interface the AES battery bank with Victron inverter and charger systems. The SLRK card is used to interface the AES battery bank with Sol-Ark inverter and charger systems.The 42-48-6650 and 44-24-2800 batteries will communicate directly to Xanbus devices from Schneider XW and SW inverters and charge controls. The 44-48-3000 needs the LYNK and Xanbus card to communicate with Schneider equipment.
