EV battery health monitoring is key to preventing electric vehicle fires. A damaged lithium-ion battery can lead to thermal runaway and is often the key cause of an electric vehicle fire. But it’s very difficult to know whether a battery has been damaged or not.

As such, this is a very interesting article from Batteries News. It outlines how Metis Engineering have revealed the beta version of their Production Battery Safety Sensor.

Designed to monitor the health of a lithium-ion battery pack and detect cell venting, an early sign of catastrophic battery failure, this Production Battery Safety Sensor represents a very positive development in the ways in which we are able to monitor electric vehicle battery health and, ultimately, try to prevent EV car fires.

Here at Prosol UK, we’re focused on doing all we can to prevent electric vehicle fires which is one of the reasons why we have developed our Fire Cloak Electric Vehicle Fire Blanket.

Our Fire Cloak Electric Vehicle Fire Blanket by Prosol UK has been specifically designed to be easy to deploy across a variety of locations including car parks, car dealerships and charging stations. Since thermal runaway lithium battery fires are self-sustaining and require little or no oxygen to propagate, the blanket acts as a barrier in preventing the spread of fire and limit the escape of smoke.

If you suspect or confirm an EV car fire, simply unroll and drag the fire blanket over the entire vehicle and leave it in place until the fire service are on scene.
