Product Details

The AD8280 is a hardware-only safety monitor for lithium ion battery stacks. The device has inputs to monitor six battery cells and two temperature sensors (either NTC or PTC thermistors). The device is designed to be daisy-chained with additional AD8280 devices to monitor a stack of significantly more than six cells without the need for numerous isolators. The output can be configured for an independent or shared alarm state.

The AD8280 functions independently from a primary monitor and contains a reference and LDO, both of which are powered completely from the battery cell stack. The reference, in conjunction with external resistor dividers, establishes trip points for the overvoltages and undervoltages. Each cell channel contains programmable deglitching circuitry to prevent alarms from transient input levels.

The AD8280 also has two digital pins that can select various combinations of inputs in the case where fewer than six cells are to be monitored. Most important, it has a self-test feature, making it suitable for high reliability applications, such as automotive hybrid electric vehicles or higher voltage industrial usage, such as uninterruptible power supplies. The AD8280 can function over a temperature range of −40°C to +105°C.
