Battery test tech for continuous flow system

Battery test tech for continuous flow system

ConFlow Power is developing a renewable generator using a combination of Nano technology and Nano film, coupled with natural gases in the atmosphere, to create a totally self-renewing power source, and itself was acquired this year for an undisclosed sum by E-Getx of London, UK. The battery test technology will be rebranded BatteryWare under a new wholly owned subsidiary of E-Getx.

ConFlow Power looks like a battery and acts like a battery but is a combination of an on-board generator and a capacitor, performing similarly to a battery or electric power source. The ConFlow Power Device can be used in a multitude of sectors, including electronics, automobiles, computing, and mobile communications. It also has heavy industrial capabilities and applications, and ConFlow Power has adopted a strategy of licensing the technology to different regions and sectors.

BatteryWare will be exclusively used for the first in the field tests of the ConFlow Power Device to be conducted during the 1st quarter of 2020. This brings data directly from the battery or power source in real time and whilst under stress in everyday use. Originally designed for batteries, it is now being adapted to test for various factors unique to the ConFlow Power Device such as recharge rates and battery life, and speed and flow of power whilst in use. 

The first tests will be conducted on a Tesla battery unit acquired by the new development team at BatteryWare and takes a different approach to battery testing. It is a low cost ‘onboard’ testing device, which is connected to multiple data communication channels. BatteryWare adopts a policy of 10 percent lab and 90 percent in-field testing, producing live, pure, data-driven results for the new generation of battery/generator testing technology, and testing key data points of a battery’s life in the field whilst under stress. It transmits that data to the laboratory, where it is analysed for all factors useful for future development and enhancement of the power source, whether that is a battery, a capacitor, or a combination of both. This creates a real time picture to understand precisely what it is that causes battery life erosion and shortening. BatteryWare also looks for loss of power and reliance as well as device recharging events and their consequences.

BatteryWare also detects safety issues, tampering, ambient and internal temperature, real GPS monitoring, maintenance and a number of other factors reserved for the consumption of our clients.

The testing technology allows for a cost-effective device to be worn by the battery whilst the battery is in use in the field. The data that the BatteryWare tech transmits back is both factual, instant, comparative, and impeccable in its validity.

BatteryWare has three different products to offer the market. The Imperial e is the basic version that can be deployed in every single battery-driven automobile in the world at less than the cost of a floor mat. The data is downloaded at service points in the dealership including base level battery usage, stress, depletion and recharge, life span expectations, and damage signal points. The next mid-range product (still in development) is the BW Operational Protection (BWOP). This is a plug and play version of the Imperial e with a projection measurement for battery safety. This product will be for use only on the ConFlow device. Finally, The Perfect White Box is the ultimate version. It is a factory fitted module, fully automated, hosting a constant output for multi-point data collection and delivery in real time with AI applications and data analysis software as standard.

The combination of elements which make up the technology have been in development since 2011. BatteryWare has created a significant intellectual property (IP) catalogue for, testing, transmitting and analysing vital in the field data for the future improvement and efficiency of battery technology.
