Features of the GS Yuasa lithium-ion battery storage system

  1. High level of safety ensured as the voltage of all cells can be monitored, and temperatures of all modules can be controlled
  2. As the modules are fan-less, malfunctions are less likely to occur and the number of parts requiring replacement has been substantially reduced
  3. Modules housed in fire prevention ordinance compliant cubicles in accordance with relevant laws and regulations
  4. Able to withstand severely cold climatic conditions

Constant voltage monitoring and failure monitoring are performed on all of the cells to ensure the reliability of the entire system. In the event of a malfunction, GS Yuasa utilises its nationwide service network (one of Japan’s largest) to promptly respond to customer needs.
