Ennovi in Singapore has  developed a connector system for prismatic cells in battery pack designs.

The ENNOVI-CellConnect-Prism contacting system is designed to improve the connectivity and efficiency of the modules using in a battery pack.

The connector system enables the integration of individual prismatic cells to create larger battery modules or advanced cell-to-pack (CTP) and cell-to-chassis (CTC) configurations. By streamlining the assembly process and eliminating inefficiencies, ENNOVI-CellConnect-Prism accelerates battery pack production while optimizing material usage and reducing costs.

“Traditionally, prismatic cell contacting systems have relied on current collector assembly (CCA) technologies, which often suffer from inherent inefficiencies. These systems entail complex processes, including laminating and assembling carriers with low-voltage data collection circuits, current collectors, and terminal busbars. However, ENNOVI-CellConnect-Prism revolutionizes this approach by introducing innovative features that enhance performance and sustainability,” said Randy Tan, Product Portfolio Director for Battery Platform Development Solutions at Ennovi.

One of the key elements of the connector system is a die-cut circuit as an alternative to the conventional flexible printed circuit (FPC). This reel-to-reel process reduces production time and costs while minimizing environmental impact. Additionally, the use of automotive-grade PET material and hot-bar soldering ensures optimal thermal resistance and component attachment without compromising integrity.

The ENNOVI-CellConnect-Prism also eliminates the need for traditional insulation methods by integrating voltage and temperature sensing directly into the assembly. This optimizes material usage and production efficiency while maintaining the highest standards of reliability and safety.

The system is compatible with prismatic, cylindrical, and pouch cell formats that can also be use din a battery pack.
