I follow the BMS threads/debates to learn. It strikes me that a large part of the controversy is that members have different opinions of what the term BMS means.

Suggestion:

BMAN = battery management system
BMON = battery monitoring system
CMAN = cell management system
CMON = cell monitoring system


At a minimum, please use BMS and CMS to differentiate battery level monitoring from cell level monitoring.

I'm pretty sure everyone in that thread considers BMS as a cell level monitoring or management system, depending of it shunts yes or no. Everything else is not considered as a BMS.

But everyone needs so now and then, if discussion is going the wrong way, to subtle twist and change the definition of terms. That is a human right. Fought for by the blood of our ancestors.
