Jon Elis from Lithuania has introduced a new BMS for prismatic cells, made by MJ Amperonics.
It appears to be a knockoff of the Elektromotus EMUS (which in turn appears to be a knockoff of the Lithiumate Pro): distributed digital BMS for up to 256 cells. A nice feature is the inclusion of Bluetooth, for direct compatibility with the Torque app running on Android.
I added it to the list of all digital Li-ion BMSs and to the automatic BMS selector utility.


Low Carbon Idea from China has introduced a distributed BMS for prismatic cells. It's clever in that each cell board has connectors on the edges that mate to the adjacent cell board. As long as the prismatic cells are stacked flat side to flat side, installing it is a snap.
I added it to the list of all analog Li-ion BMSs.

Re: New BMS offerings: 123 Electric

Also: 123 Electric from the Netherlands.

This BMS is also a knock-off of the Elektromotus EMUS and the Elithion Lithiumate, with two important differences:

  1. Good: cell boards are in a single string. Yet, you can place opto-isolated cell-boards between two banks, for noise-free communications, and to allow for a fuse or safety disconnect between batteries. (In the Emus and in the Lithiumate, each bank goes back to the master, achieving the same effect, but with more cables.)
  2. Bad: you have to solder wires to the cell boards (In the EMUS you use nifty IDC connections on each cell board. In the Lithiumate, you use push-in splices.)

Added to the list of all BMS, and to the BMS selector.
