Batrium Watchmon Toolkit Think Tank!
#1
This thread will be dedicated to suggesting new ideas that you'd like to see implemented in future releases of Batriums BMS.

  1. Ideas are just that, random, good, bad just put them out there and see what happens.
  2. Nothing is guaranteed to ever be put into place.
  3. Talk about the ideas perhaps with community input we'll come up with something groundbreaking and useful! 
  4. Is there anything that needs to be removed?
Any idea is a good idea...

My request would be 
  • EVSE charger to turn on and off via SOC
  • A pulse able to turn a computer via SOC

A simple one... Wink
a "real" separate ambiant temp sensor ( to turn on and off heat/cool )
The sensors on the longmons are affected by the bypass resistors and the one on the shunt gets affected by the current true it...

* Multiple shunts. 1 as main and the others as extra. Main goal is to be able to assign strings and 1 shunt per string. Then you can have 2 strings with different type of cells in terms of quallity and dont have to mix them but be able to see how they perform. (Not different chemistry)
* Be able to meassure IR based on shunt values during charge and discharge. Saved so you over time can get values indicating how battery pack is performing
* LUA based events. So user potentially can use the current values and controll the expansion board based on scripts. Smile
* A baby function - So it will nurse the cells so they multiply themselvs.. ;P

I could have filled it up with more but i guess those are on its way Smile


Edit: Wim: Could work with just an 1wire port on the board and you can add 1 or many Smile

This is a really good idea. I think it'd be easier if they were i2c based (or similar) for each shunt (unless they are that way anyways). That way you could have as many as you needed, like the longmons.

DEFINITELY!!!!! I'd buy it just for that alone!! Big Grin

Some sort of email notifications would be nice, like hey you're cells voltage is close to exceeding the safe threshold and the shunt will trip soon or something, could also be any number of possible notification scenarios. Even state of charge notifications would be cool, like when your pack hits 50% state of discharge or other set points.

No real need to implement extra for the shunt. Just use existing datalink. Perhaps have 2 of them Smile

DARK MODE - so when you just want a stealth setup you can turn off 80 blinking lights.. handy when the world ends and you don't want want to advertise an awesome BMS

I’m not familiar with the Batrium software but one thing I’d be looking for if it doesn’t exist is a timer display for how long each Longmon has been balancing for.
With resettable zero point.

Thinking that less efficient packs will have lower balancing time.
Kind of a lead indicator that a pack isn’t travelling so well if the rest are balancing down to it.

May already be a feature?

Jon, Batrium BMS has extensive tracking of each cell monitor, Bypass mAh will tell you how much weaker a cell is than others by bypassing more mAh's
