Battery Safety

The Eurabus batteries are protected by a multi-stage safety concept.

 

On the one hand, the battery management system prevents over- or under-temperature, as well as over- or undervoltage already in the formation. As a result, no critical situations can emerge for the installed batteries.

 

On the other hand, the structure of the bus ensures battery safety. Even if critical situations arise (e.g. by external influences) these situations are locally confined and can not immediately interfere with other bus parts. Possible overpressure is safely carried out of the bus by special membranes and pressure valves in the battery cells.

 

The installed batteries also meet the UN Transport Test 38.3 and ECE R 100 Rev.2:
