Forsee Power launches ZEN LITE, an ultra-high density battery pack for both 350V and 600/800V powertrains
A compact solution to electrify 100% battery-powered heavy vehicle with excellent energy density
Forsee Power’s new ZEN LITE battery system with ultra-high energy density will be available in two pack options of 54 kWh and 47 kWh, in one single format.
Its compact size and exceptional volumetric density of 258 Wh/L make it the ideal battery solution for 350 V powertrain vehicles such as light and medium electric trucks, short buses, and off-highway vehicles. Moreover, with the possibility of connecting two packs in series, ZEN LITE is also a great solution for heavy vehicles of 650 V and 800 V when the available space is limited.
Equipped with the same electrical and mechanical platform as ZEN PLUS, the ZEN LITE system incorporates the latest, higher power NMC cell technology that allows charging flexibility: overnight charging for all-day operation, or fast charging to 50% in less than 20 minutes. This opportunity charging solution is particularly suitable for companies whose fleets make operate with limited break time at the depot.
Ecodesign and safety are at the heart of Forsee Power’s R&D policy
These new packs not only ensure a very competitive lifespan, but they are also designed to facilitate repairability. As an example, the removable electronic unit on the front makes it easy to repair hence optimizing vehicle availability. Also, at the end of their first life, ZEN LITE batteries can be used in stationary energy storage systems for several more years.
Forsee Power engineers ensure the safety and reliability of the battery systems, taking into account the applications and conditions of use. The safe and robust design of the ZEN LITE range complies with the ISO 26262 ASIL-C road vehicle functional safety standard as well as many stringent road and industrial standards such as R100-3, R10-6, ISO 12405, SAE J2464, among others.
