Second-generation battery storage system eloPACK with improved functions
Modular system: from 2 to 12 kWh output
Battery cells conform to highest safety standards
Remscheid, 9 March 2016 - For homeowners, planning certainty and independence from fluctuating electricity prices are top priorities. Storing self-produced electricity, as well as heat, can play an important role here. That is why Vaillant is presenting the second generation of the eloPACK battery storage system. “The new eloPACK can be incorporated into systems efficiently and flexibly,” says Christian Sieg, Head of Product and Service Management at Vaillant Germany. “For example, the device can be combined with electrically powered heating units and all electricity generation systems, such as photovoltaic systems, CHP units, fuel cell heating systems as well as wind or hydroelectric power systems.”
Easy to install and integrate into other systems
Thanks to its compact design, the device can be easily integrated into existing systems and into the electrical environment of buildings. To do so, it is only necessary to establish the electricity and data connections and a bus connection. The battery modules and casing are delivered separately, which simplifies transport to the installation site.
The battery storage system is available in increments of 2 kWh, with capacities ranging from 2 to 12 kWh. All output sizes are equipped with the same components, such as standard outer casing and the same inverter. Only the number of battery modules used is different, depending on the capacity.
Only high-quality modules using Li-Ion iron phosphate technology are used in the device. Due to this, the battery storage modules fulfil the highest safety standards. The modules’ capacity is given consistently as the usable capacity actually available. With conventional battery systems, the technical data often only specifies the overall capacity and not the actual capacity available for charging. That means that, under certain circumstances, a conventional battery storage system labelled as having a 10 kWh capacity may actually only have 5 kWh available for storing electric power.
During the initial phase, Vaillant’s factory customer support team will be responsible for putting the system into operation. Skilled technician partners can then complete training from the second quarter of the year onwards.
