What's a Smart Battery Management System?
Updated: Jan 23, 2021
The battery included on new models of Triad Electric Vehicles includes BMS. But what exactly is a Smart BMS anyway and why is it important?
A battery management system, or BMS, is a combination of hardware and software included with today's most technologically advanced batteries. Typically this is technology only found in advanced semi autonomous electric cars. It works to control, monitor, protect and extend the life of high end batteries.
The hardware installed on the BMS is a micro processing computer engineered with a Bluetooth device. That means it collects all the most important data about the battery in real time and that sends data wirelessly to an app installed into your mobile device or tablet to read and control crucial information about your battery function.
BMS gives you peace of mind for battery safety and can extend your range and battery life exponentially. This information is extremely valuable as batteries age. BMS allows you to actually see into the battery and understand where it is throughout it's lifespan.
