Monty Sunderland, NTS Consortium

September 1, 2023

YoLink has Products solution that provides enhancements for Small to Large Company’s Pro-Active Lithium-ion (LIB) Fire Prevention Enhancement program, with monitoring LIB’s Ambient Air Temp during Charging and Storage. Accomplished with efficient YoLink Sensors & LoRa network, 24/7 App push monitoring feature for Early Detection Alerts from monitoring a Lithium-ion Battery’s (LIB) Thermal Runaway potential ambient air indicators. Companies can accomplish this using YoSmart’s Solution for LIB’s ambient Air Heat Temp sensor, Smoke & CO sensors, and Camera surveillance.

Why monitor ambient air temperatures for LIB? 

Lithium-ion Battery Safe Storage temperatures range from 32℉ (0℃) to 104℉ (40℃).

Lithium-ion Battery Safe Charging temperatures are similar but slightly different, ranging from 32℉ (0℃) to 113℉ (45℃). 

Damage to all types of lithium-ion batteries can occur when temperatures are too high (e.g., above 130°F) OSHA.[1]

The YoLink solution enhances a Company’s early warning monitoring capability to activate their Fire Prevention and Mitigation procedures for their Lithium-ion Battery’s thermal runaway warnings potential. Using their proactive fire potential detection, site investigation, and Fire Prevention management mitigation programs. 

Examples of Common LIB Charging Areas with potential fire hazards where Heat monitoring for Excessive ambient Temperature is a Safety and Fire Prevention concerns are:

All Lithium-ion Battery Charging areas. Warehouses, Config & Repair Rooms I.T & UPS Rooms, Construction, Landscaping, Maintenance, Security, when Charging LIB Tools, and LIB Radio Packs

Any Storage Area for Lithium-ion Batteries or Products with a Lithium-ion Battery.

Generator and Electrical Rooms, Lithium-ion, or Lead Acid Battery PIT /MHE Charging areas.

Companies can accomplish the Enhanced Fire Prevention goal using YoSmart’s Solution for monitoring LIB’s ambient Air, with YoLink Heat Temp sensors, Smoke & CO sensors, and Camera surveillance network for 24/7 site Push monitoring.
