About NTC temperature sensor used in automotive BMS battery


With the widespread application of new energy electric vehicles, battery capacity, safety, health and endurance have increasingly become the focus of attention. The battery management system is a system for monitoring and controlling the battery. In addition to the battery, the core component of the new energy vehicle is the battery management system (BMS). The battery management system (BMS) is mainly to improve the utilization rate of the battery. Prevent the battery from being overcharged and over-discharged, monitor the battery's status, and prolong the battery's service life.


Temperature has a great influence on the performance of automobile BMS battery. At present, only the surface temperature of the battery is generally measured. The NTC thermistor temperature sensor is used to measure the surface temperature of the battery. It is attached to the surface of the automobile battery to measure the temperature. Generally divided into several types:


1. Metal fixed ring type:


Material used for the head:


1. Copper nickel-plated material: 0.8mm metal thickness, with high melting point, high hardness, and bright surface.


2. Copper tin plated material: 0.8mm metal thickness, but the melting point is not high enough, the hardness is not large, and the surface is not bright with copper and nickel plating.


3. Stainless steel: 0.5-0.7mm thickness to prevent rust.


4. Pure nickel terminal: 0.2-0.3mm thickness, high hardness, convenient welding, light and thin.


2. Water drop head:


The head is encapsulated with epoxy resin:

1. The temperature sensor encapsulated by epoxy resin is usually glued directly on the surface of the battery, so the temperature measurement effect may be worse than that of the metal fixing ring, and the stability is not high. Generally, this kind of head is not used in high-end cars. The package measures the battery temperature.

Because it is used to monitor the temperature of the car battery, the ambient temperature near the battery will definitely be humid. The temperature sensor must have waterproof performance. Whether it is a metal fixing ring or a water drop head package, it is packaged with a single-ended glass thermistor. This waterproof effect is very good.


Therefore, the BMS battery management system is of great significance to the protection of electric vehicles and charging station equipment, and the temperature is also very important to the protection of the BMS battery management system.
